Copenhagen on a budget | What to see and do

Copenhagen is one of the most cycle-friendly cities I have ever visited, a great city that impressed me instantly. There is a relaxing and cool vibe in  the city that makes it easy to feel like home. Read my guide on some of the budget things and activities you can do in the city, where to eat , what to do and which places to visit, from local attractions to food and entertainment.


Nyhavns colourful houses impressed me instantly. Nyhavn, Copenhagens historical harbour, one of the most picturesque areas, is a must see you visit Copenhagen.


Visit Christiansborg Palace (95 DKK). The palace has free access to the tower, from where you can  admire Copenhagen’s overwhelming beauty.

I had a good tasting experience – delicious steak, au gratin potatoes, salad bar and white wine (cost 250 DKK) in Jensens Bøfhus, Vesterbrogade.

I had a wonderful experience dining traditional danish dishes in Frk. Barners Kaelder. The food was of great quality, the portions were quite good and the prices affordable. The dinner per person cost about 200 DKK.

I really enjoyed every moment of my visit to Botanical Garden. The entrance is free of charge.

  1. I love Copenhagen and I have been to there few times. Your post a great joy to read. I love it. Biking in summer is easy! Can You imagine, that in Oulu, Finland people bike in winter also. In Finland it is natural. People bike when going to their work, for pleasure and when going for shopping. The best biking town in Finland is Oulu.

    Oulu is also the only one town in the world which offers free reindeer races intended for everyone. Make the difference between reindeer rides and reindeer races. Reindeer rides are commercial and they can be done at the Arctic Circle nearby the town Rovaniemi, but reindeer races only in Oulu.

    This is winter biking in Oulu:

    Have a wonderful day!
