Kopenhagen - ein Wochenend-trip

Dies ist eine schnelle & schmutzig Anleitung für ein erholsames Wochenende: Second-hand Shopping, Sightseeing, Bier und Hot Dog.

Hovedstaden, Denmark

How to get there

  • train: there are special offers by Deutsche Bahn: Hamburg-Copenhagen 
  • plane: Kastrup Airport is close to the city. Metro is running frequently between airport and train station


Bring with you

  • Even in summer, Copenhagen is often windy and a little chilly 
  • While Danes might wear t-shirts 
  • Middle-Europeans would wear a pullover
  • South-Europeans should bring a scarf, hat and gloves


  • Denmark does not have the EURO
  • you pay with "DKK" (Danish Crowns) 
  • 1€ = 7.44 DKK

Good to know

  • Beer & Food is not as expensive as people keep saying, but it is not cheap either
  • The Danes speak English really well and are really helpful and friendly people
  • Hello = Hej and Thank you = Tak

    Gut zu wissen: ein Fahrrad (es gibt auch kostenlose Fahrräder in den Straßen) zu greifen und die Straßen zu fahren, wie die meisten Dänen zu tun.

Go SHOPPING! The main street for shopping - called Strøget - is a paradise for lovers of Danish design and clothes (not so much the part close to the city hall, though.) Make sure you circle the tiny street around Strøget, too, as they are packed with great second-hand shops. 

Also walk up the Købmagergade and have a short break from shopping, getting up the rolling ramp of the "Round Tower" and enjoy the view over the city.

The best way to explore beautiful Copenhagen: Get on one of the barges and enjoy a beautiful 90 min boat-trip. You will see the little mermaid, Amalienborg (the queens castle), the old stockmarket, the parliament, the beautiful canals of Christianshavn, Holmen and much more!

    don't take the obvious- first-sight boat-trip provider, look on the right side of the canal. They offer the same trip for only 45 DK instead of 70 DK. The boat-trip is very recommendable, especially if you walked all day long and feel a little tired.

Have a wonderful walk around the famous lakes - the popular recreation area in downtown Copenhagen. This afternoon activity should not be done with a stop at a (typical Copenhagen) kiosk to get a beer and a bag of candy. Even better: go to the "pick & choose" candy store at Fredriksborggade near Nørreport.

At Night: Concerts, Tivoli & Party

    Das Nachtleben in Kopenhagen (am Wochenende) ist lustig und verrückt. Sie möglicherweise nicht in der Lage, alles zu versuchen. Wählen Sie eine je nach Stimmung, die Sie in... und je nachdem wie müde Sie sind, nach einem Tag voller Besichtigungen.

Tivoli is is the second oldest amusement park and pleasure garden in the world - opened on August 15 1843. Start your night here.

Vesterbro has always been the party district of Copenhagen. It was upgraded some years ago, when kødbyen (the meat-packing district) was taken over by party people.

    I went out in the meat-packing district and even though my couchsurfing hosts said they don't often go there, we had a very special and unforgetable night there =) Totally worth it!

Day 2 - Long Walks, Coffee & Cake, Beer & Hygge

    Das dänische Wort "Hygge" ist schwer zu übersetzen. Es ist das dänische Konzept, eine gute Zeit mit Ihren Freunden in einer entspannten Atmosphäre. Es beinhaltet in der Regel ein Bier oder zwei.

Hovedstaden, Denmark

There is so much to say about Christiania. Most important: explore it! The farther you go beyond the famous market-place, where they used to sell Marihuana, the more you will feel the spirit of the hippie commune. Get a famout "Copenhagen chocolate cake" at the sunshine bakery and visit the world famous "Christiania Bike Shop".

    Most interesting part I've seen in Copenhagen. Known as being lawless but still live as a community under certain rules. You meet all kinds of people there and while wandering through Christiania you can feel the 'Freigeist' atmosphere. When you exit Christiania you can see the following sign.

Hovedstaden, Denmark

This is the best part of Copenhagen. (I used to live here!) Have a wonderful view over Copenhagen (and see Sweden) from the top of the "Vor Frelser Kirke". But be aware: it is scary, even if you are not afraid of heights.

Hovedstaden, Denmark

Daytrip: visit the beautiful castle Kronborg Slot in Helsingør - where Holger Danske a humongous viking is sitting in the catacombs - asleep until the day Denmark will be attacked, when he will rise and fight for his nation. :) The tiny old town of Helsingør provides cosy cafés and I would recommend to bring a lunch-bag for a picknick at the beach.

Watch the holy Copenhagen Soccer Club "FCK" play and enjoy a beer surrounded by friendly and funny Danish soocer-fans at the stadium.
