SURVIVAL TIPS

  • DO Ride a bike In Europe’s cycling capital, do like the locals and hire a bike out from the hostel for just 80DKK (about £9). This is the best way to explore the city. Use our Copenhagen Cycling Guide for more tips if you’re on two wheels…
  • Eat Local Danish Treats There are plenty of places in the city to get a taste for local cuisine. Danish cheese, flødeboller, smørrebrød, licorice and savoury porridge, Head to the food markets Torvehallerne or Copenhagen Street Food Market to fill your stomach.
  • Travelling from the airport If you fly into Copenhagen airport, the city centre is easily reached by taking the train in just 13 minutes. Trains depart from Terminal 3 every 10 minutes.
  • For the best coffee Copenhagen Coffee Lab if they're out for great coffee. For more caffeine tips, check out our article on the 7 Best Coffeeshops in Copenhagen
  • There’s so much to do If you’re in Copenhagen for just a couple of days, it’s impossible to fit every sight in. But use our round-up of the Top 10 Things to do so you don’t miss anything worthwhile
  • Tipping culture Tipping isn’t usually expected and service is usually added onto the end of your bill. If you do receive amazing service though, feel free to tip your waiter around 50 Kr which is about £10.
  • Be cautious in Christiana A free state within Denmark where there are no laws and no cars allowed (it’s so worth the visit). Known as the hippy part of town, you can travel there by bike but don’t take photos around Pusher’s Street where drug deals often take place.
  • Don’t be too polite No need to be too polite. Please and thank you is appreciated but the British tend to overdo it, which will weird out most danes.
  • Our top bar recommendations The Bird and the Churchkey is an awesome gin bar. Belushi’s is great for a cheap, fun night. For great cocktails head to Lidkøb or Ruby. The second one has been rated #34 bar in the world.
  • The best hidden gem You simply must visit the new Carlsberg Glyptotek Terrace - an amazing art gallery with a cafe and garden boasting amazing views. This place is hidden fairly well unless you know where it is
