Kobenhavn Travel Guide, Denmark

Kobenhavn, more widely known as Copenhagen, is the beautiful capital of Denmark. This part modern, part cosmopolitan and part medieval city is one of the most worthwhile tourist destinations in the Scandinavian Peninsula. In additions to tons of sights (there is so much more to Kobenhavn than Andersen’s mermaid), this city is also a haven for shopaholics and revelers.

A little known fact about Kobenhavn is that it is located on the island of Zealand, the very island that gave the name to the much larger New Zealand. The city’s historical neighborhood is full with churches and beautiful pieces of architecture, but there are sights to be seen in the fashionable parts of the city as well. This Kobenhavn Travel Guide will help you plan your dream holiday to this bustling metropolis.

Kobenhavn Travel Guide - Transport

The closest airport to the city is Kastrup Airport, one of the busiest airports in Scandinavia. There are countless large airlines and several low-cost companies that have flights to Kobenhavn. You can easily catch a flight to Kobenhavn from London, Milan, Paris, Budapest and a number of other European cities. You can also land at Sturup Airport near Malmo, a mere 40 minutes drive from Kobenhavn. This way you also get the chance to cross the famous Oresund Bridge across the eponymous strait.

You can also travel by train to Kobenhavn, not only from within Denmark but also from other locations in Europe. You can get to Kobenhavn in a matter of hours from Odense, Aalborg or Sonderborg. Railway lines connecting Kobenhavn to Sweden are also quite excellent and there are trains departing from Ostenport, the main train station to Malmo, every twenty minutes.

Kobenhavn is quite large and while you can visit certain areas on foot, you will need to use the city’s public transport to get from one neighborhood to another. Just jump on a bus, tram or subway. A pleasant way to visit the old city is by boat, through the extensive system of canals. But is you really want to blend in with the rest of the locals, this Kobenhavn Travel Guide recommends that you rent a bicycle - it’s the favorite means of transport of half of the Danish!

Kobenhavn Travel Guide - Accommodation

Despite the fact that most places have prices fit for such a cosmopolitan city, backpackers can still find a few good places to spend the night without making a hole in the wallet. Cabinn City Youth Hostel is located in the city centre close to public transport stations. The hostel has cheap rooms with wireless internet, luggage storage and 24 hour open reception. The breakfast is very filling and quite cheap in comparison to Kobenhavn prices. Somandshjemmet Bethel is a set in a beautiful historic building and it is located close to the main tourist attractions. Rooms are large and comfortable, and the breakfast buffet at the hotel is absolutely exquisite. If you are looking for a hotel with a unique atmosphere, go to Radisson SAS Royal Hotel, a luxury hotel designed by the famous Danish architect Arne Jacobsen.
