Bueno saber

1. Biking culture in Copenhagen makes the city very special. Copenhagen is officially the first Bike City in the World with over 390 km cyclist lines. It is easier and faster to get from one place to another on a bike. To work, fitness, concert or other events, Copenhageners will go by bike, no matter what the weather is.

2. One of the world’s best amusement park, Tivoli Gardens, is placed in Copenhagen. This cultural heritage is located just in the heart of the city, 100 m from the central station. Inspirational place for many fairy tales of the most famous Danish writer – Hans Christian Andersen. In Tivoli you will find: carousels, roller coasters, acrobats, musicians, dancers and actors playing scenes from Andersen’s fairy tales. There are restaurants, cafes, pastries and shops. Since 2006, chair plane The Star Flyer - the highest carousel in the world, more than 80 meters high, is running in Tivoli.

3. Copenhagen is the most joyful Scandinavian capital city. The city takes pride of huge numbers of cages, music clubs, bars and discos. Everyone will find something for himself. It is a metropolis with over one and a half million inhabitants, but at the same time is characterized by intimacy, lacking in many European cities. ‘Hygge’, Danish word that simply can’t be directly translated to English and means something around ‘Coziness’ is strongly visible around the city. Copenhageners know how to do HYGGE.


Fastest way: Taxi. It will be the fastest way if you need to get quickly to specific address, it would take approximately 20 min to get to the city centre, depending on a traffic. Cost: 250-300 dkk.

The best taxa company that I highly recommend is called TAXA 4x35.
You can easily order a taxa via use of their app, just search for: Taxa 4x35 (it works both on Android and iOS). During your ride, you can enjoy free WiFi available in all TAXA 4x35 cars.

Cheapest way: Is to buy metro/train/bus 3 zones (DKK 36) ticket and jump on one of the public transport methods. Metro and train stations are located in Terminal 3. Metro will take you in 13 minutes to Nørreport Station, located just in the middle of the city. Bus 5A will take you in 30-35 min to the central station and train will take you in 13 min to the central station.

- Specialties of the town to eat:
You need to try hot dog from traditional Danish pølsevogn (outdoor mobile kitchen). You will find many of them located all over Copenhagen, on every main street and square. It might not sound like something really new or special, but believe me this is part of Danish culture and tradition. Especially the organic hot dogs will make your mouth spoiled.

Open sandwich (smørrebrød) is typical and traditional Danish food. At their simplest, smørrebrød are open-faced sandwiches built on a thin layer of dense sourdough rye bread called rugbrød, piled high with toppings. The toppings make the sandwich special. Some of them look like a piece of art on bread. Prices can vary up to, believe me, a lot! Taste best while eaten with knife and fork. That’s how Danes do that.
The most popular smørrebrød is Stjerneskud. Various types of sea foos (breaded fish, steamed fish, shrimps) pilled on a piece of French stick with egg, asparagus and Marie Rose sauce to create an open faced sandwich masterpiece. "Stjerneskud" means shoot-ing star in Danish.

Flødeboller (Chocolate-coated marshmallow treats). Probably known all over the world, but Denmark is the largest producer of this sweet treat. From ordinary to luxury Flødeboller they all taste great! Are available at every grocery and pastry shop. Must try during your stay in Copenhagen. They taste the best here!


- Specialties of the town to drink:
Copenhagen has one of the most dynamic and exciting beer cultures in Europe. Dozens of styles and hundreds of craft beers are brewed in Copenhagen and all over the country. Ask for the local beers, they are available in almost every bar. Remember to visit Carlsberg brewery and get a bottle of Danish beer before you go home.

- Tipping: It is ok to tip, but not necessary in Copenhagen. If you received high level of service, you are very welcome to reward it with a tip; it is up to you to decide about that.

- Is the tap water safe to drink from the tap: tap water is safe to drink. You can notice in the city public taps and is it save to refill your water bottle with the Danish tap water.


- A cup of coffee in the restaurant: around 40 dkk
- A lunch menu in the restaurant: 100-120 dkk including a drink
- A ride in a taxi: start fare around 40 dkk, per km around 15 dkk

- Meatpacking District: In der Vergangenheit war der Meatpacking District Heimat der Kopenha-gener Fleischverarbeitungsindustrie und besteht noch immer aus drei getrennten Bereichen, die man als weisse, graue und braune "Meat City" aufgrund der dominierenden Farbe ihrer Gebäude bezeichnet. In den vergangenen Jahren veränderte sich der Bezirk zu einem neuen kreativen Cluster mit trendigem Nachtleben und einem breiten Angebot an qualitativ hochwertigen Restau-rants. Der Meatpacking District steht seit 1995 unter dänischem Denkmalschutz. Hier findest du reichlich Restaurants, Bars und Pubs. Perfekt für junge Leute. Die Leute sind gut drauf und die Atmosphäre sehr entspannt.

Tolle Auswahl an Cocktails und eine anheimelnde Atmosphäre sorgen dafür, dass bei deinem Besuch im Salotto 42 die Zeit nur so verfliegt.

- Mikkeler - für Bierfreunde! Geniesse die grossartige Bierauswahl in einem urigen Umfeld. Die Kneipe ist recht klein, aber schön eingerichtet und einfach immer unterhaltsam. In Kopenhagen gibt es zwei Mikkeler-Bars, eine in Vesterbro und die andere, die grössere, im Bereich Nørrebro.

- RUST - Liegt im Nørrebro Viertel. Ein dreistöckiger Club, mit ausgewählter Musik von aufstrebenden Künstlern wie auch Danke Musik.

Make sure you do not walk on the bicycle lines. Some of the Danes are cycling very fast and they do not expect you to be on the cycling line. It might irritates them, but what is the most im-portant it can be very dangerous for you. Danes are very friendly and basically they all speak English, if you need any help or direcions advice, just ask them. I am sure that they will be very happy to help you. Hey, it is the Danes who again took the top spot in world hapinness report.

With the help of the filter "With free wireless" you find highlights that offer free wireless.
Apart from that Copenhagen will offer you several opportunities to get free access to the Internet. Huge number of cafes, restaurants and hotels offer free WiFi, you will probably always find yourself near one of them. Museums, Art Galleries, Shopping Malls, Tourists Centres are the places with free Internet access as well.
Good option is to visit libraries, they always have free WiFi, in some of them you can also borrow a stationary computer with Internet access.
Free WiFi is available on public transportation in Copenhagen, in all S-trains and buses. The area of Copenhagen’s Airport and Central Station is covered with free WiFi as well.
Simply, free Internet access is available all over the city and as a tourist you shouldn’t have any problems finding open Internet connection around you.


You can rent a bike in almost every bike shop in Copenhagen, you will find many of them.
There are couple of well known and recommended places for bike rentals. Both described here are visible under Copenhagen’s highlights.
My favourite is Baisikeli, location in walking disctance to the main train station makes it very convinient. Process is very fast and they have budget bikes, which are very cheap, but usually are gone in the morning, so make sure you come in a good time.
Another place is called Copenhagan Bicycles, except regular bikes, they offer family and electric bikes. Once you visit Copenhagen, you will notice right away what family bike means :) They are located in Nyhavn.
Copenhagen has city bikes as well, with electric motors! Stations are located all over the city. To be allowed to use them, you need to register online at ww.bycyklen.dk/en/
Don’t forget to ask at the hotel where you are staying, if they don’t rent bikes, most of the hotels do that.
My little tip: if you plan to stay in Copenhagen longer than a week and you know that you will be using bike, I suggest that you just buy cheap, second hand bike, it might be cheaper than renting one. Don’t be surprised when you see old and rusty bicycles around the city, instead of the most fancy and expensive ones, that’s how it looks here, bike is just a transportation method, it is supposed to function, that’s it :)
