A cheap weekend in Copenhagen

Copenhagen has a reputation for being an expensive city, ... no kidding? Ok, it's true. But I love challenge and will show you how to spend a weekend in Copenhagen low budget style....

Day One

  • Nationalmuseet: National museum (entry is free): you should not miss it, and the new Prehistoric exhibit is really great
  • Carlsberg Glyptotek (free one day per week, right now it is Sunday)
  • the Royal Greenhouses in the Botanic garden (Botanisk Have)
  • the parcs (Rosenborg Have where you can admire the beautiful Rosenborg Castle and Botanisk Have are my 2 personal favorites)
  • Quick lunch at the pølsevogn - plan around 50 dkk for a sausage and a drink
  • Quiet walk along the lakes (4 longs lakes at the west of the city center)
  • A beer at the Carlsberg brewery (tasting included in the entry ticket) or the local way, sitting on the wharf at Nyhavn
  • After all that you might be a little hungry, so let's stop for a nice little evening all you can eat buffet at Riz-Raz or Ankara (both are restaurants brands with a few in the city center)
For sleeping, no a lot of cheap options, I can onnly name Danhostel Copenhagen City (H.C. Andersens Boulevard 50). It's a youth hostel located fairly well but you still have to pay around 30 euros per night per person.
