Lists you may be interested in:
Museums, local food and drinks, sightseeing and cake!
Try to get an early flight, there are lots of cashmachines so you really don't have to change money earlier than at the airport. You can get the CPH card at the airport.
Take the train to the city, it's really easy!
discount and get-in-for-free card, really worth buying!
09:30 Early check in, you might not get in your room just yet, but you can store your luggage. The rooms are cozy, lovely decorating. Breakfast is okay, not too fancy, but good.
10:30 walk to the Glyptoteket, soak in the atmosphere by first getting coffee or tea at the cafe and drink it in the wintergarden. After that: admire the collection (there's a lot!) The objects are brought together out of esthetics, so no context what-so-ever for the archaeology, but refreshing to just see the objects as they are....
12:30 archaeology pur sang! These kinds of fundaments, such a stratigraphy you will not often see, go and be amazed!
13:30 different forms of archaeology, and you're in luck when the vikings-part of the museum is open!
There's a lot to see, luckily they have made some booklets and pamphlets (obtainable at reception) to coach you through to your favourite parts of history, themes or objects.
15:00 take the guided tour (with the great shoeware...) to the thrown hall. You get to see parts of different stages of dwelling in this castle.
16:00 Stories of Hans Christian Andersen and stories about his life... it leaves a smile on your face
after that time for the first Polser! Just go to the booth just in front of the City hall, enjoy!
17:30 Have dinner at Tivoli (free entry with the card) and in wintertime visit the Christmas market. The chinese restaurant is very affordable.
In Winter they also have a typical drink you have to taste: Glogg!
It really is a nice feeling to wander around the first amusementpark Europe ever knew.
Day 2 10:00 Time to get to know something about the history of the town. The model of the medieval town in the garden is great
12:00 It's quite a bit of a walk but fantastic brewery, good museum and really great tasting!
13:30 Not too far from the brewery, really great museum, see how 19th century wealthy people used to live
15:00 With CPHcard so take the tram up there. There's a restaurant, if you got hungry by now. The atmosphere in this zoo is fantastic and it really adds to your visit of Copenhagen.
17:45 Just take the tram back in town, shop a bit and walk over to this restaurant. Really lovely atmosphere, like sitting in someones home or in a small fishermans village. It's the oldest restaurant in town. Choose some real authentic dishes like duck or herring. They have their own beer, so worth a taste! And of course they have all kinds of aquavit.
Day 3 09:30 Learn about the struggle of labourmen in the 18th/19th en 20th century, really interesting!
Come back later for Luncheon with smorebrot and also homemade beer in the Ol-halle, really takes you back in time
11:45 Really robust, animals in the courtyard, the crownjewels on display, changing of the guards: enough to be seen!
13:30 after Luncheon at the Olhalle, we go back in town and of course a visit to this tower is a must, the view is great, the architecture impressive
14:30 Since it's a birthdaytrip: time for cake!
The climb up the tower can make you hungry and the cakes here are sublime, really creative and there's lots to choose from. The atmosphere of this place is fantastic.
15:30 Walk through the shopping area to Amalienborg, where you will learn a lot about the royal family of Denmark.
16:45 When in winter: plan this a bit earlier in the day, so you get to see her by daylight, in the dark there really isn't that much to see. Actually: in daylight neither, but well: you haven't been to Copenhagen if you haven't seen the little mermaid, and it is a healthy walk up there!
17:30 Time for a drink. Walk to Nyhavn, such a lovely atmosphere and get a nice beer at for instance 'Skipperkroen'.
After that: seek out a nice place to eat, there are lots of restaurants with good promotions, so it really doesn't have to be that expensive!
Day 4 Our last day.
09:30 After checking out it's time for a sturdy walk to all the places we haven't seen so far. You can walk up to Christiania, but I really didn't fancy that... the atmosphere was a bit grim in my opinion, but hey: knock yourself out!
After that you definately have to walk to the Borsen with the beautiful roof.
11:30 We haven't been into the City hall, so now is good a time as any...
12:15 Since it's next to the Radhus anyway, go inside and see if your watch is still 'on time'
12:30 Before leaving for the airport you have some time left for a last meal. Buffets are the the way to go, especially around lunchtime. For something not-danish but still good, try the lunch buffet at Sultan Palace.
After that: back to the hotel to pick up the luggage and on to the trainstation: catch the train to the airport, hope you've enjoyed your stay!
