Copenhagen is a city in Denmark, and the tourism authorities boast that you can walk the entire city in a day. While this may be true, you certainly cannot see everything that the city has to offer in a day. Copenhagen is home to more than 60 museums, as well as theatres, gardens, castles, ancient churches, a planetarium, outdoor café dining and the New Harbour. There are enough things to see and do in Copenhagen to keep you busy for more than a week’s holiday!
When you are getting ready for your trip to Copenhagen, don’t forget to go online and order your Copenhagen card, called the CPHCard. For DKK 10 (just over US$2) you get a card that allows you free train, bus and metro transportation, including to and from the airport. With the card you can get free admission to 60 or so of Copenhagen’s museums and attractions, and discounts on other tourist sites, restaurants and car rentals. Order your CPHCard at least two weeks in advance so it can be posted to you and you’ll receive it well before you leave for your trip.
