Tips: City trip Copenhagen

By train to Copenhagen takes about ten hours. From Hamburg the train goes directly to the capital of Denmark. At Puttgarden the train goes to the boat and you can get off the train and shop or eat on the boat. The train leaves the boat again at Roedby in Denmark and continues to Copenhagen.


Most hotels in Copenhagen can be found to the left of the station. This neighborhood is also the Red Light district of Copenhagen, but that won’t bother you. Our hotel was Hotel Selandia, just 500 meters from the station. The rooms were neat and very quiet, there was no noise pollution from inside or outside the hotel. The breakfast was good, just the standard breakfast products but also tasty sweets.

Public transport

Public transport in Copenhagen consists mainly of city buses and a very short metro network consisting of two lines. There is also a Hop-on Hop-off bus in Copenhagen, but when we were there it only drove one route, and we had just walked that route the day before, so for €20 per person we found this Hop-on Hop-off tour a waste of money.

City center

Copenhagen has an easily walkable city center with many sights. For example, you can admire the statues in Copenhagen Cathedral, where the Crown Prince of Denmark was married. You can also spend an afternoon at the Tivoli theme park, which is located in the middle of the city. You can relax in the Kongens Have park, in this park you will also find Rosenborg Castle, this was the summer home of the King of Denmark, and now the crown jewels are kept here. The Beef Tart is also funny to see. This round tower has no stairs on the inside but a circular ramp so that carts could drive through it.
The Nyboder district is also nice to stroll through. This district was built for the sailors. They are all yellow terraced houses, it is a very special sight. Of course you should also visit the Little Mermaid, although she is quite disappointing in real life, it is a fairly small statue in the harbor. The Frederikskirken is a beautiful church in Neo-Baroque with a beautiful dome and many frescoes, it is as if you are in Rome. The Christianshavn district is also nice to take a walk through. This district was built by King Christian IV, he was inspired by the Netherlands, which is why the street plan is very geometric and many canals have been dug. In this district you will also find the free city of Christiania, which is a semi-independent enclave in the middle of the city. It was founded in 1970 by the hippies. You can walk around this area, it seemed a bit spooky to us.
You can also visit the Carlsberg factory and nearby is the Copenhagen Zoo and the large Frederiksberg Have park with the castle of the same name.

To eat

The nicest place to have a meal is Nyhavn, this harbor consists of all kinds of colorful restaurants and cafes where you can sit on the terrace all year round to enjoy the surroundings, and then some radiant heaters are installed and you get a plaid to cover up. to beat you around.

Castle tour of North Sealand

As a day excursion you can join the Castle tour of North Sealand. You will visit Kronborg Castle, where you will receive a tour of the castle and the cellars, after which you can have lunch in the village of Helsingor. Then you can watch the changing of the guard at Fredensborg Palace, which is the summer palace of the Queen of Denmark. You will also get a tour of Frederiksborg Castle, which has many paintings and a church built into the castle where you can still see the coat of arms of Queen Beatrix and Prince Claus.
Copenhagen is a very spacious but easily walkable city. There is plenty to do for young and old and there is plenty to see. You will find a 7/11 on every street corner, and you can always go to these small supermarkets. Furthermore, you have to be careful of cyclists in Copenhagen, because they seem to have more of them than us!
