Copenhagen is Scandinavian chic mixed with fairytale charms. Pretty canals, memorable art galleries and one of the world’s best dining scenes all combine to create an endlessly fascinating Nordic city escape. Thankfully, Copenhagen is quite compact and many of its main attractions are close to each other, so it is easy enough to explore by foot. Also, if you are using public transport, then consider the tourist-friendly Copenhagen Card, which will give you free access to public transport and many museums, as well as discounts at shops and restaurants. You can get both 24-hour and 72-hour cards. Of course, when visiting Copenhagen you may want to consider the cycling option too. The city is famous for its public bike share system, Bycyklen, and you can find these intelligent electric bikes dotted around everywhere.
If you are planning on taking taxis, then tipping drivers is not traditional in the city. If you are hiring a car from the airport, then providers include National, Alamo and Europcar. However, note that parking can be expensive in Copenhagen. Please also check the latest driving regulations for international visitors. Denmark is right-hand drive.
When arriving at the airport, you can find taxis at terminals 1 and 3 and they usually take around 20 minutes to reach the city center. There is also a train station at Terminal 3 that runs every 10 minutes during the day and will take you to central Copenhagen in under 15 minutes. As well as this, there are metro and bus options.
A whistle-stop tour of some of Copenhagen’s main attractions can be completed in around 60-90 minutes. Many visitors begin their adventure in City Hall Square to see the Hans Christian Andersen statue. Across from this is the breathtaking Tivoli Gardens and amusement park and also nearby is the renowned Glyptotek gallery, which includes works by Van Gogh, Degas and Monet. The city’s historic center includes Christiansborg Palace, the seat of the Danish parliament and Amalienborg Palace, home of the Danish royal family. And of course, you shouldn’t miss seeing the iconic The Little Mermaid statue on the waterside.
Lesser-known attractions include Assistens at Kapelvej 4, a tranquil historic cemetery filled with the graves of famous Danes, and Kulturtårnet, a café housed in a copper bridge tower that offers fascinating 360-degree views of the harbor.
Copenhagen is in the CEST time zone, six hours ahead of Washington D.C. If you are traveling from the USA, you can enter the country for up to 90 days without a visa, but make sure that your passport is valid for at least six months beyond your stay. The water is safe to drink in the city and English is widely spoken.
Copenhagen has four distinct seasons and a climate much like that of the northeastern United States, though it rarely gets as hot in the summer. The saying goes that "something's rockin' in the state of Denmark," given the many outdoor events and concerts that hit stages in peak summer season. Midsummer's Eve is celebrated on June 23 with evening bonfires and live music on the city's wraparound shoreline, as well as at leafy Faelledparken. The first weekend in July brings the Roskilde Festival, Northern Europe's largest set of rock concerts, with more than 100 bands performing. Summerdance, showcasing contemporary and traditional dance performances, takes place in August at pop-up, open-air venues in the main plazas downtown. A word of caution: Copenhageners typically go on holiday in the last half of August, so many shops are closed at that time.
Shoulder season means late spring and early fall. Spring arrives late, with trees blossoming in May; sweater-and-scarf season returns in early September. These bookend months are a pleasant time to explore Nyhavn, the old sailors’ quarter that has morphed in recent years into a bohemian neighborhood with canal-side cafés. Shoulder season is also an ideal time to stroll Strøget, said to be the world's longest pedestrian shopping street, with many charming boutiques. September brings mild temperatures and the annual Golden Days festival, a three-week series of art exhibits and dance performances focusing on Denmark's artistic heritage from the early 1800s.
Typical light snowfall and brief daylight hours don't stop locals from celebrating Christmas energetically. Trees and pavilions in the 170-year-old Tivoli Gardens, a Victorian-era theme park, are lit up, and a market selling ornaments in the shape of Father Christmas (julemand) runs throughout the month. The quayside Nyhavn district is another hub of holiday spirit and live music, as is the ice-skating rink in the eastern plaza named Kongens Nytorv (King's New Square).
