The most interesting towns are Malmö and Lund. For picturesque village and natural scenery, go to Mölle and Arild villages on the Kullaberg peninsula, north of Helsingborg.

There are many more, if smaller, sights on the Swedish side of the water, depending on your interests.

The travel time by public transport from Copenhagen is usually between 1 - 2 1/2 hours, and Malmö and Lund are quite close to Copenhagen. There are buses as well as trains. A rented car will give you more freedom, but it is cheaper to rent in Sweden then.

Joen

thank you very much. Would you recommend to exchange money in US or in Copenhagen airport ? What about Sweden- how to pay for the transpotation coming back to Copenhagen-is it posible to buy a round-way ticket?

thank you for knowing everything.

Concerning money spending, ATMs and Credit Card use are extremely common here. As regards CCs, we use those with pin-codes.

I don´t think you will find major differencies in the rate between rates here and your place, but I guess our Kroners (DKKs and SEKs) aren´t always so easily obtainable over there.

The exchange offices at the Copenhagen Airport are said to be giving a reasonable rate; perhaps check the current rate on the web before going, so that you will have an impression of where to change most Kroners.

Otherwise, the "Forex" exchange offices at the Copenhagen Central Station, Nørreport Station etc. are usually seen as those giving the best rate, at least during normal shopping hours.

As regards the Sweden transport, it is usually possible to buy round trips to major destinations, but it depends on where you are going, and I don´t see why you shouldn´t bring some Swedish cash when visiting the country anyway ...

You might consider the "Round the Sound" ticket for public transport, which goes from Copenhagen up to Helsingør/Elsinore, includes the ferry to Swedish Helsingborg, and the train southwards to Lund and Malmö, then the train/bridge back to Copenhagen, for DKK 199,-.

visitcopenhagen.dk/se-og-gor/…382

It can be bought at the Copenhagen Central Tourist Office on Vesterbrogade too, opposite the Tivoli entrance.

Other transport options are the very frequent regular trains and the cheaper buses CPH - Malmö/Lund. Tickets between DKK 60 - 100 one-way.

Joen
