A Hipmunk City Love Guide: Five Tips for Your Trip To Copenhagen

Not only is Copenhagen the capital of the happiest country in the world, but it is a city rich in culture. The Danish Capital overflows with green living, great fashion, interesting design, delicious restaurants and cafe’s, and an affluent history. It is a gem of a city. So as you get ready for your next adventure and plan a trip to Copenhagen, be sure to check out the following tips as they will make your trip much more enjoyable.

No Euros in Copenhagen

When you are planning a trip to Europe, you typically will plan on exchanging your cash into euros. However, as surprising as it is, euros are not the currency of Denmark. In Copenhagen and the rest of Denmark, they use the Danish Krone. Although the euro is something you are more likely to use on other travels, the exchange rate of the American dollar into krone easily makes up for the inconvenience.

Best Time of Year

When asked what the best time of year to visit Copenhagen, most people would reply summer. Summer time is when the city comes alive with music, people, and outdoor fun. However, Christmas and New Years should top the list of best times to visit as the decorations and festival feeling is outstanding. The cold typically keeps people at bay, but that just drives the cost of traveling there down making it that much better of a time to visit.

Stay on a Budget

There are many great affordable hotels in Copenhagen to stay in while on vacation. With so many choices, it is more a matter of where you want to stay in the city than where is the cheapest place to stay. If you are looking for a hotel on a budget, but want to stay near attractions such as Tivoli, look into staying at the Copenhagen Star Hotel. And remember, no matter where you choose to stay your US dollar is worth much more in Denmark, so you get a lot more for your money there than at home.

Bicycle Around

Copenhagen is famous for commuters who travel by bicycle, and it is one of the most biked cities in the world. So, why not explore the city by bicycle when you are there? There are several shops where you can rent a bike for the day. Additionally, if you would like to take a tour, there are some great public bike tours where you ride around the city and see the major sites.

Must-See Tivoli

The second oldest amusement park in the world, Tivoli captures visitor’s attention. Although, you may think you have no interest in amusement parks, this is one place you don’t want to miss. With lush gardens, roller coaster rides, arcade games, and over 40 places to eat, you can spend a day having a ton of family fun. There is a small entrance fee, but children under the age of eight are free.
