A week in Copenhagen

69%
Found this guide helpful

Copenhagen is at it's best between May and September. When you visit, make sure you also get a chance to go a little outside the center, but if you're only in town for a day or two, there's lots to see and explore downtown.

Peter J's City Tips

  • Try out the canal tours and hop-on-hop-off bus tours. Recommended hotel would be Admiral and on Wednesdays you should definitely try a Danish traditional dish at Frederik VI.
  • Frederik VI
    Restaurants (Scandinavian, Danish, Bar, European, Pub)
    Peter J Says:

    Frederik VI is a classic bar/restaurant in the Frederiksberg commune in Copenhagen. On Wednesdays they serve a traditional dish of "Stegt Flaesk" which is a must-try when you visit Denmark.

    A very peaceful and beautiful haven in Copenhagen. Stroll around this wonderful garden and take in the ambience. See the locals (and other tourists) relaxing and enjoying life.
