It was a short stop in Denmark, but thankfully I have spent time in Copenhagen before. It is a great city with lots of cool things to do and just a really great vibe as well.
Check back for my Denmark blog post.
Louisiana – one of my favorite art museums! It is a bit out of the city but is so unique and definitely worth visiting.
Tivoli – the cutest amusement park you will ever see! It’s really old but adorable and well taken care of. There are a variety of rides and it is a great way to spend a few hours.
Paper Island – a market / food hall with a really cool setting. It’s a bit of a walk from the heart of town but that walk comes with great views and great food at the end.
The official currency is the Danish krone, and I had no problem paying by credit card.
Public transportation is widespread and pretty easy to use, and walking is a great option as well.
I flew SAS from Helsinki, Finland (HEL) to Copenhagen, Denmark (CPH). I flew SAS from Copenhagen, Denmark (CPH) to Amsterdam, Netherlands (AMS).
There are lots of great coffee spots and cafes in Copenhagen, and Paper Island is really great as well. The supposed #1 restaurant in the world (called Noma) is also in Copenhagen so good luck getting a reservation!
PLUGS / ADAPTERS
Denmark uses European plug types C and K.
None for U.S. citizens for 90 days.
I felt very safe in Copenhagen. It is a small big city so still take regular precautions, but personally I have never felt unsafe.
SHOULD YOU VISIT?
Yes! It’s a great country with a lot of unique things to do. I would love to come back and spend more time both exploring Copenhagen and the rest of the country.
