The capital of Denmark is definitely Scandinavia’s most relaxed capital city with a distinctly European feel and laid-back culture that will make you want to return time and time again. The city is perfect for wandering through, or hop on a bike, the preferred mode of transport for locals. Throughout the city, there’s a nautical vibe reflected in the colorful shore-side homes of Nyhavn Harbour and tall ships docked along the quays.
Copenhagen is a city for every taste. The three most famous attractions are the 100-year old amusement park Tivoli Gardens, the of The Little Mermaid, and the freetown of Christiania. The city is has a history dating back to 1043, resulting in historic landmarks and museums. Be sure to visit Amalienborg Palace and walk down the shopping street. And remember, this city is the place where Nordic Food Revolution began, so make sure you have an haute cuisine experience in places such as world-class Noma.
Best Time to visit
Summer is the best time to visit to enjoy the long Scandinavian days. Between June and September, the streets of Copenhagen come to life with festivals and outdoor activities, thus hotel prices are on their highest. If you do not mind Scandinavian weather, prefer visiting between April and May, where city is not packed and there are lower hotel rates. Autumn is a beautiful time to visit as well with the changing of leaves with incredibly travel deals.
Budget Hotels Areas
Copenhagen is an expensive destination, so if you are traveling on a budget, make sure you stay away from city centre. Prefer the areas around city’s central train station, where you will find plenty of budget options within walking distance. Most of the city’s attraction are available by foot, so this will save you some extra.
