First trip to Copenhagen - limited time

Hi,

I am off to Copenhagen for work but will have one full day and one half day free for sight seeing and am staying at the Admiral hotel. I arrive early afternoon on Saturday 22nd March after traveling 30 odd hours and then have Sunday off before starting work on the Monday. Its my first trip and know I can't cram everything in but I'd like to do the 'major' things to get a feel for the place. I am sure I will be planning return trip.

Can I have suggestions please on the major things I should see/do?

Thanks

Ideas for a varied trip could include

- strolls alomg Nyhavn, Strøget and the walking streets bordering Strøget, including Gråbrødre Torv

- a canal boat tour

- ascending the Tower of Church of Our Saviour

- a visit to Ny Carlsberg Glyptotek - free on Sundays and a nice, if rather expensive cafe inside. Luggage deposit in the basement obligatory.

- a visit in Torvehallerne

You could go on the Copenhagen Free Walking Tours, they take 3 hours and leave from in front of City Hall every day at 11am.

It's a good way to get your bearings and see as much as possible in a limited time while still having enough time to look around on your own afterwards.

Hi, can anyone tell me how I can get a Copenhagen card? What about the free walking tour? You mean someone take us to walk for free? this is unbelievable! Or I will have a guide map to do my own tour. I have an 80 year mom to be with me on the trip. We have a limited budget. Can we use the metro system to get around? Is there any inexpensive trip to tour the entire Scandinavian cities offered? How do we do it inexpensively? can anyone help

You can buy cOPENhagen CARD at the airport.

Hi, I still don't have the answer for the following questions. So, I would like to repost it: What about the free walking tour? You mean someone take us to walk for free? this is unbelievable!

Hi,

check out the website

It is customary to give a tip for the guide, as stated on the website too.
