If Scandinavia has always been your travel fantasy, you should definitely start with Copenhagen. The beautiful capital of Denmark is beautiful, warm, incredibly clean and happening, and as a traveler, you will never be in short of things to enjoy and do. Planning your trip, however, requires some understanding of the best attractions, and we strongly suggest that you check for holiday apartments in Copenhagen instead of hotels. While the Danish capital is not cheap, these properties, best of which are located in Østerbro district, offer great value for money. Here are some of the other things you can do in three days.
Try the street food and don’t miss the beer
Foodies will love this city for the street options alone, although Copenhagen has some really-famed Michelin Star restaurants. Reffen, for instance, is a great place to grab a bit in the evening, while at Torvehallerne, you can shop for fresh catch of the sea, seasonal ingredients and make your own meal at an apartment hotel. If you want to try food from different parts of the city, go to Paper Island, where you can actually find food from other parts of the world too. If you are a fan of craft beer, this is where you will find a huge number of options. The best microbreweries here can surprise you considerably.
Make your itinerary
Copenhagen has a lot to offer, so make sure to have a checklist. We strongly recommend that you make time for Tivoli Garden, which happens to be the 2nd oldest amusement park in the world. Also, walk to the top of Tower called Rundetårn to have great views of the city. All the postcards you see from Copenhagen are taken at the historic riverfront area, called the Nyhavn. Here, you will find buildings from 16th and 17th centuries, which house some really nice but expensive cafés, bars and restaurants. Rosenborg Castle is also a good point of attraction, and if you want to see museums, don’t miss Thorvaldsen’s Museum and National Museum.
Other points to know
Copenhagen is a bike-friendly city, and you can get around easily on bikes, many of which have tablets with GPS. Also, you should consider getting the Copenhagen card, which offers access to over 80 attractions, as well as to public transport, like buses and trains.
Make sure to book your stay in advance, so that you can get the best deals.
