Best Copenhagen travel guides in English?

Any thoughts on which are the best travel guides of København in English? Also, where can you get the best map ( fold-out hard copy) of the city? I've heard Kastrup airport or the tourist bureau near Københaven Hoved Banegårn?

This website and travel forum is a wonderful site and resource for visitors - tak!

When I passed through baggage claim at Kastrup Airport about a month ago tourist maps were available there. There is also a tourist information counter at the airport.

There are very good maps in book stores, they are red and in plastic. You can destroy them :)

The best guide written by a local is Politiken's Copenhagen guide. You can buy it in the most book stores, or simply at Politiken's book store on City Hall square.

It is very interesting to read and it is full of good recommendations. I often buy it for my foreign friends as a souvenir/gift when they visit Cph.

The map we used was from tourist information at the airport; the guidebook we used was Rick Steves' Scandinavia. I am a huge fan of his books: great practical transportation information, walking tours, actual sight tours, hours of operation, etc.

Thanks, Cinti. Yeah, I like Rick Steves' stuff. I'll have to look into his Scandinavia guide.
