Copenhagen is one of those cities for me, where you can just walk around without any entertainment program. It is my 2nd visit to Copenhagen during last 6 months. It was quite a short trip during working week from 14 till 16 February. In this post, I will share my experience and photo from this trip. It is not a travel guide for Copenhagen but just my experience :-).
I was flying via low-coster Wizzair Kyiv-Copenhagen. As it was not really a planned trip, I bought tickets 2 weeks before the flight. Total price for 2 Person Kyiv-Copenhagen-Kyiv was around EUR 250. Actually, it was possible to buy them for around EUR 225 but I decided to reserve better seats.
Honestly, Denmark is quite an expensive country to live and to travel. During my previous visit to Copenhagen, I booked accommodation via Airbnb. But for this trip, I was staying only for 2 nights, so I decided to book a room in Hostel Generator, which is situated in the center of the city. During our stay there was a special offer 30% discount if you make payment in advance, so total price was around EUR 145.
Breakfast in Cafe Mo Joe Gothersgade. EUR 36 for one Danish Breakfast (plate on the photo), cappuccino and tea.
As our plane arrived around 8 pm and we already had some food at the airport we were not so hungry. But I have some kind of tradition, when I arrive in Copenhagen I always go to the cafe located on Nyhavn called Vaffelbageren, where I order a waffle with ice cream and coffee, the total price is around EUR 20.
Also for breakfast, I would recommend, if your near center of the city, cafe Atelier September. Here you can task delicious yogurt and typical Danish breakfast. Average price for breakfast with coffee would be around EUR 25.
For dinner, I would recommend Papyrus Bogcafe ApS on Fiolstræde 10. Average dinner with wine would be around EUR 35.
During all my visits to Copenhagen, I always visit Emmerys. I would recommend trying croissant there.
Copenhagen has public transport with good logistics, but it quite expensive. I would recommend using bicycles if possible.
Places to visit
Here is the list of top places you must visit in Copenhagen:
- The Little Mermaid (it is do little);
- Strøget (central street);
- Rosenborg Castle (in the park);
- Just keep calm and walk around.

Just for your interest
- There is no problem with free available WIFI. Almost in every supermarket and cafe, there is Internet connection with no password and with good speed;
- Some supermarkets accept used plastic/glass bottles and you can get money in cash, in average DKK 1.5 per 0.5-liter plastic bottle;
- In Denmark it is always very wind that is why, if you are planning to go for a long walk around the city, better take moisturizing cream.
