Budget Question - 4 days in copenhagen


i am planning a trip to Copenhagen in early november and usually plan way in advance and use this site as theres always good answers to thew questions i need to know

i have a question about budget

2000DKK for 4/5 days will that be enough

food - breakfast / snack lunch / evening meal

3/4 drinks out in evening each night

most attractions i see are free and i will probably be walking most places as i prefer it that way

i like churches/museums/castles etc

probably do a day trip to malmo as its not far

any advice will be greatly appreciated

3-4 drinks each night could 'eat' close to half your budget.

Not all museums/castles have free entrance.

i see what you mean about drinks prices

maybe a couple in my hotel room before i head out and keep to one drink with my evening meal

a pint of beer in a bar is around 60% more expensive than England

Copenhagen is a expensive city, expect everything to be a lot more than England.

The city is very walkable, we live in the city centre and walk (or cycle) everywhere so you can save money there.

A lot of museums are free but many do have a fee, it depends what exactly you want to see.

I personally would say to budget

80-100 dkk for breakfast

50-100 dkk for a snack lunch, double if you want to go to a cafe, I just spent 180dkk on a sandwich and a coke for lunch in a cafe today.

200 dkk minimum for dinner in a restaurant, slightly less in a cafe.

As you've found, drinks in bars are expensive so you can save by cutting these out.
