I am going to Copenhagen for a weekend break and I am looking for some nice suggestions on eating, drinking, shopping. Any good ideas that won’t break the bank?
All of the shopping that you`d ever need is there. My favorite quirky shop is called All Over The World (official name Sostrene Grene). They are now in a new location just opposite the Candy Mega Store in a corner location at 24 Amagertorv Street. Stroget district. http://www.grenes.dk
Nyhavn is fun to see but tourist prices for food/drink. Cheapest food options are on the opposite side of the railway station from Tivoli. Anything BY Tivoli is way too expensive. Most food options in the shopping part of town are awfully boring in their sameness.
And you didn`t ask for this, but the best/cheapest thing in town is the National Museum (near Tivoli) with free admission. On my last trip they had a superb Viking exhibit. If you arrive in Copenhagen by train from Germany, you`ll possibly see Viking burial mounds. I`ll be in Copenhagen for my birthday in mid-May and plan to go to Roskilde to the Viking museum – perhaps 20 mins from Copenhagen bahnhof.
Ah, you`re so welcome. I enjoy Copenhagen, have been quite a few times. Just wandering through the stores is fun – Lego, The Disney Store, Royal Copenhagen and many many more.
I`ve yet to go to Tivoli – either bad weather or wrong season, but hopefully in May – http://www.tivoli.dk/en/
I’ve had to delete your comment I’m afraid as it doesn’t adhere to our community guidelines. Feel free to join in the discussion though.
I hope I’m not too late with the tips but I was in Copenhagen only a few weeks ago and it’s a very cool city although if you are in the city centre then it is expensive. A tip would be that some hotels only take online bookings which means you need a credit card. Should be okay for most people though. Some hotels tell you they will charge you an extra 50% at reception because you want to pay in cash but if you just use the hotels computers 50mtrs away at the other end of the lobby and book online there is no charge. Strange!
There are loads of things to do in Copenhagen but rather than me just listing them I wrote about the best 5 things in Copenhagen on my website from being there a few weeks ago so that should definitely help you. Hiring a bike is a very good idea and Copenhagen is super bike friendly.
I hope this helps
