    Disappointing small city

    Disappointing small city, many open construction sites and is dusty everywhere. I found rude people especially in stores, there are naughty sellers that invites you to leave the store if you do not like something or if you have a complaint Not much to see and I would not recommend anyone to go there..

    Great city if you're not a typical tourist - this city is lived in by it's people. The best way to enjoy Copenhagen is to act like you're from there, enjoy the city slowly - no rushing to museums or mermaid sculptures, do em slow, and get there on a bicycle if you're able!

    Insider Tip:Be careful when ordering food at traditional restaurants - portions are often HUGE, always ask about portions!

    The great Copenhagen

    After getting over sticker shock (which can knock you on your ass if you aren't careful), I really loved this city! It is a very walkable, and bikeable (duhh it is Copenhagen after all) city, so I wouldn't bother with public transit, unless you only have a few hours here.

    Insider Tip:It can be chilly here! And windy as well, so check the forecast before you leave! Remember everything here costs quite a bit more than most other places (unless you are coming from another Nordic country) so not the place to just "pick up" a cheap jacket because you were cold. Could set you back a days budget or more!

    Charming city.

    Copenhagen is absolutely charming. I recommend bringing a raincoat and a sweater because it rained every day while we were there. Absolutely stunning city, though. Lots of history and the city is entirely walkable. You can get pretty much anywhere within 40 minutes walking time.

    Insider Tip:Bring good walking shoes and don't bother with public transportation. Get to know the city by walking! It's one of the most walkable in the world. You can get anywhere within 40 minutes on foot.

    Good Scandinavian Mix of Old and New

    Copenhagen reminds me of a Danish equivalent to Munich. It maintains a certain air of it's past while still looking to an environmentalized and modern future. Fortunately, WWII was kinder to Copenhagen, and there is a lot of history to get into before the sun sets over the city. Copenhagen lacks a varied nightlife, though, and travellers not looking to see castles and other remnants of royalty may quickly tire out of the town. During the warmer times there is Trivoli and Legoland, though.

    Insider Tip:Denmark's national museum is free of charge, even without the "Copehagen Card" and includes (at the time of this review) some special exhibits not related to Danish history (fur production, at the moment), so budget travellers wanting to delve into some Danish discussions can try there.
