2 days in Copenhagen

Hi,

We will be in Copenhagen for two days, this Easter weekend (friday and Monday).

We are planning to do some hop-on hopoff canal tours. Can someone guide us, what are the important places we shouldnt miss?

Greetings!

They aren't really canal tours per se, rather harbour tours.

Info on DFDS tours here: http://www.canaltours.com/dct/en

This tour starts on March 21: www.city-discovery.com/copenhagen/tour.php…

You might want to have alternate plans, as the forecast for Friday is rain/snow, though Monday looks to be drier if not very warm.

Stores will be closed on Monday and part of Saturday, but museums and tourist sites should be open.

As to important places - Christiansborg Palace is great, though you must be on a tour to get inside. Rosenborg Palace has the royal jewels and some of historic exhibits.

For art lovers, Glyptoteket is fabulous, and you can go to the National Museum nearby for free.

If the weather cooperates, it's a worth a walk down the Strøget, the pedestrian path. It starts up by the National Museum & main square, and goes past Christiansborg. You can spend some time exploring the old areas off the Strøget and climb up the Round Tower to get a view of the city.

Have fun!

Hi,

Very thanks for the info.

We are planning to do the water-bus hopon hopoff trip buying a day card and exploring the city ourselves.

Few more queries, regarding the train stations.

1) We are flying from frankfurt to Copenhagen and our friends are coming from düsseldorf by train.

The trains arrive at Norreport or Kobenhavn H?

2) as per the canaltours site, all the tours start from Nyhavn. How to get there from Norreport or Kobenhavn H?

Thanks in advance.

All trains (but NOT the Metro) from the airport stop at Kobenhaven H, many also stop at Nørreport. Your friends' train will definitely stop at København H, but again may stop at Nørreport (they should check the train schedule for details).

If your friends' train stops at Nørreport, you should take the Metro to Kongens Nytorv (right next to Nyhavn), and have your friends take the Metro from Nørreport to Kongens Nytrov.

Otherwise, meet at København H. From there, you call walk or take a bus to Nyhavn. The other option is to catch a train to Nørreport, then switch to the Metro to Kongens Nytorv. Probably easier just to catch a bus.

The harbour bus should be running - it's pretty much year-round, but with a restricted service in the off season (barring ice in the harbour, it always runs before and after performances at Operaen).

Thanks again,

We would better take trains to Kopenhavn H. I just had look at the price for the travel.

It shows two prices (30 Kr as Billet and 16,50 Kr as Klippekort). What is the difference? Which is applicable to us?

A 'billet' is a regular ticket, which is good for a set period of time depending on the number of zones it covers.

A klippekort, is a ten-clip card, which you can buy to use for multiple trips. The cost of the card depends on the number of zones in covers, and the number of clips required depends on how many zones you are travelling + the kind of card.

To Amalienborg:

1) walk - long walk

2) take a bus directly from Københaven H

3) take a train to Nørreport, then walk - probably about 15 minutes walk
