HOW TO GET THERE:

The Danish capital is easily accessible through low-cost airlines, I chose Norwegian leaving from Barcelona, flight price 80 €, it is not easy to find flights for less than a weekend.

Once you arrive at the Airport you can reach the train by metro, bus or train.

If you are coming from Germany or Sweden, there are trains/buses that connect the main cities, a Hamburg – Copenhagen train will cost you € 80 approx, from Berlin on € 120.

HOW TO MOVE IN COPENHAGEN:

The metro and bus service covers all the major attractions of Copenhagen, try to use them as little as possible and walk, you will enjoy the city much more.

Metro works 24h on 24h and 7 days/week, there are various combinations and the Price depends on the area where you are.

TIPS TIME!! If you are interested there is a Copenhagen City pass (a/r airport ticket included)
72-hour City Pass costs DKK 200 = € 26
24-hour City Pass costs DKK 80 = € 10

WHERE TO EAT AND SLEEP:

I advise you to stay as much as possible in the center even if it is much more expensive, in my case was a group of 6 people it was impossible to find something that was low cost, so I chose to stay as close as possible to a meter but not in the center.

About the food, prepare your wallet, this city is very expensive, but there are so many interesting restaurants, for ex:

Mad & Kaffe = Great Brunch.
Bar 7 Copenhagen = Good lounge Bar, at midnight start music.
Det Lille Apotek = It’s better to take a reservation, good Danish cuisine.
