    wonderful city, wonderful atmosphere. Loved being here for a short visit in summer before it was high tourist season.

    Insider Tip:Bring linens as most hostels will charge here (this is my opinion but not verified more than personal experience with two hostels) as compared to other cities I have visited in two months in europe. not so vegetarian friendly, but you can find stuff with patience. One of the more expensive places in europe but worth spending a day or two :)

    Chill and Beautiful!

    Copenhagen was absolutely beautiful! And easy to walk around, if you don't like to ride bikes. The people are super friendly!

    Insider Tip:Christiana is not scary or dangerous. Definitely check it out! The little lake right nearby is perfect for using your "free town" purchases.

    Wonderful city to travel solo in, so much to do!

    Traveled solo through the city but was never bored. Beautiful streets, Tivoli Gardens is well worth the cost to get in, beautiful place to have lunch or dinner at any number of restaurants, or take a picnic to have on the grass and the rides are really good, although make sure you buy a multi-ride pass (paid for itself after 3 roller coaster rides!). The zoo is great (and huge!) and the Aquarium is wonderful (although a bit smaller that I was expecting).

    Insider Tip:Buy a transport pass from the ticket office (get there early, if you arrive after 10:30am expect to wait in line for at least half an hour) at the central station (24, 48 or 72 hour passes), makes getting around super easy (can be used on all buses and the metro as well).

    Well worth the trip

    Copenhagen is my favorite city that I visited on this trip and I'd love to go back. It has a great easy going feeling to it, its very walkable, and has a good amount of sites to see. The only thing is that its a little expensive of a city, but if you do your research you can find some good deals :)

    Insider Tip:Go on one of the free walking tours if you want to learn the history of Copenhagen (there is more than you think!!). Also make sure to visit Christiania, its an amazing once in a lifetime experience.

    Copenhagen tips

    Go during the weekend if you want to go out and experience a night-life at all; we made the mistake of going for monday -wednesday and found it very hard to find open bars and clubs.

    Insider Tip:Go to get beer during the happy hour at the bar-cafe in the lobby. Good service and great atmosphere. A great place to start or end a day.
