A cheap weekend in Copenhagen - Day 2

This is day 2 of our weekend Discount Copenhagen, the challenge continues....

Let's go for Day two.

  • Let's start by visiting the little Mermaid
  • Her girfriend - the new millemium Mermaid located a little more north on the docks
  • A nice walk in the close by Kastellet
  • The City Hall (you can go inside for free)
  • The Danish Design tour by visiting the following shops: Illum, Magasin du Nord, Georg Jensen, Royal Copenhagen and Paustian
  • National Galeries (Staten Museum for Kunst)
  • the Sort Diamant (National Library with a nice design interior)
  • Boat ride low budget (use the yellow boats where you can pay with your public transportation klippekort) or the slightly more expensive and touristic option, but still affordable, the Netto boat) the boarding dock is at the end of Nyhavn
  • During the summer season essentially, look out for the festivals posters: like Copenhague Jazz Festival (most of the concerts are free), outside movie festival ....
  • the bathing areas or beaches (yes, yes it's right, Copenhagen has a few beaches close by the Center).
Note that a large number of activities are outdoor, it's of course much easier to live small budget style in Copenhagen in summer than during winter. I have to admit that during the winter, nothing beats the hours spent huddled in a warm coffee to enjoy the Danish "hygge" Danish, but then we are not talking about the same kind of budget this time ;-)
