Copenhagen city breaks have something for everyone. Couples of all ages, families and groups of young adults can all enjoy a trip to this charming capital. It is a beautiful city, an amalgam of old and new, which offers a wide range of attractions, great shops and restaurants and a lively nightlife. With historic buildings dating from the seventeenth century, royal palaces, museums and art galleries, there is much to see. A Copenhagen Card lasting for one, two, three or five days can be a good investment as it covers bus, train and metro fares as well as free admission into seventy-two attractions, and discounts on car hire and at some restaurants. Families can add two children under ten for no cost at all. There is free use of cycles in the city centre. A city bus tour is recommended as this shows you the most famous sights and gives you a flavour of the city. You can then chose what you'd like to see in greater depth.
The top ten attractions in the city always include the Little Mermaid, inspired by the Hans Christian Andersen story. The Disney film increased its popularity as it is a statue that all children want to see. It is on the Langelinje Pier in Copenhagen harbour. Nyhaven, once a busy port, has a terrace of old brightly painted houses, one of which, number twenty, was home to H C Andersen and is now a small museum. The pier is a filled with restaurants and bistros, a good spot to end the day. Be sure to visit the stock exchange, the oldest building in the city, the Danish Parliament, and the Queen's residence, Amelienborg Palace. There are many more attractions both in and around the city. For children, Tivoli Gardens, the zoo, the aquarium and Dyrehavsbakken, said to be the world's oldest amusement park. When you are tired of sightseeing you can spend a day relaxing on the beach.
In common with the other Scandinavian countries, Denmark is not noted for its cheapness and the capital, Copenhagen, is generally on the pricey side. Nevertheless, it is possible to find accommodation where both the standard and the cost is reasonable and offers good value for money. The same is true of restaurants. While a four course meal in a five star restaurant will cost an arm and a leg, there are plenty of much cheaper options. Evenings can be as lively or as relaxed as you wish. The many bars and pubs, wine bars and bistros, discos and clubs provide for all ages. The city loves its jazz and apart from the annual festival, there are several jazz venues. Charlie Scott's in the city centre is one such popular venue.
Low cost Copenhagen city breaks reach their peak of popularity from late spring to early autumn. They then peak again when the Christmas market in the Tivoli Gardens is in full flow.
