Copenhagen’s a bustling city, so whether you like looking at art, learning about history, shopping, sipping coffee with locals, or just want to drink beer and chill, you’ll easily be able to create an itinerary that fits your style. On a budget? Check out all of this cheap (and free) stuff to do.
While we're obviously cool with you doing your own thing based on your own interests, there are a few activities we're going to insist you do:
Take a canal tour. Yes, it’s cheesy. But, you’re a tourist, so deal with it. Plus, it’s a great way to rest those tired dogs and appreciate the city from the water.
Take an urban bike tour with Cycling Copenhagen. There are lots of bike tours in Copenhagen, but there’s only one that takes you through a diverse range of neighborhoods, shows you the stuff you haven’t already seen, and gives you honest insight into how the locals live, as well as the cool stuff to do, see, eat, and drink.
Visit Tivoli Gardens. This amusement park is the second oldest in the world, and it’s right in the center of the city. There are rides, restaurants, carnival games, open-air stage shows, and plenty of adult beverages, but if you go in the early evening when all of the lights are on, it’s also just a cool place to explore.
OK, back to your previously mapped-out itinerary.
