Some background info: Family of 4 (kids 8 and 11yo) arriving from London Gatwick at 13:35 departing for Heraklion Crete Greece on 22:40 (beginning of August).
My enquiry is related to our hand luggage that we would like to store before going the city centre. The two choices are:
-P4 lockers at the airport and then metro to Kongens Nytorv or
-train to central station and luggage storage there
I have read in this forum that airport lockers are often full and also at the airport site it says they only accept exact change at the moment- no credit cards. (Does anybody know if this is up to date?) The negatives regarding going to central station as I see it is using the train rather than the metro which may be a bit more difficult to navigate (is this true?) and not so frequent compared to the metro. Also arriving to Central station will mean that we have to make our way (probably on foot) to Nyhavn canal which is our main point of interest (and then to the little mermaid). How is the area between Central station and Nyhavn canal in terms of shops, nice building etc?
Finally do you think we can manage to buy tickets, shop and have something to eat using only our VISA credit cards or must we get some Krone?
Thank you in advance for any help
