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.
TOP THINGS TO DO
Nyhavn‘s colourful houses impressed me instantly. Nyhavn, Copenhagen‘s historical harbour, one of the most picturesque areas, is a must see you visit Copenhagen.

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.
Visit Little mermaid statue, at Langelinje Pier, one of Copenhagen’s most famous tourist attractions and Christiania, an independent car-free district of about 850 to 1,000 residents.
