    Traveling While Black

    I enjoyed Copenhagen quite a bit. We were only there for 2 days, which is enough time, but it’s a very relaxed city, so it’s nice to put on the tale end of a European trip which we did.
    The amount of bikes rivals Amsterdam, along with the canals. We stayed in the Vesterbro neighborhood at the hotel mayfair, which is a nice, hipster hotel, easy walk from the train station which takes you to and from the airport and close to eating spots.
    We spent a half day during a canal tour to get some history, culture and see the major sites, like Nyhaven, the little mermaid, the financial district and the castles.
    We spent half the day at Tivoli Gardens which is the 3rd oldest amusement park/carnival in the world and it was so great to just be kids again.
    We did a little shopping in their shopping district and tried some of the local foods. We of course had Danishes and Cardamom Biscuits which is more Swedish, but very good. The Swedish border is very close and we could’ve done a day trip, but we were on the back half of 10 days in Europe and had already done 5 countries, so we were just relaxing in Denmark.
    Copenhagen is very diverse, in food, people and culture. While we were there they were preparing for a pride event. We also got free covid testing to reenter the US at the Airport.
    I’d go back!

    I love Denmark!!! The hygge culture is so refreshing. I traveled around Denmark. We of course hit some of the notable landmarks: Tivoli Gardens, Little Mermaid statue, castles, and of course my favorite…the Viking village. For those of you into Viking culture and movies, this is a must-do. The village has little huts and animals and even man-made canoes that you can experience.

    Traveling While Black

    Copenhagen is one of the friendliest cities I’ve had the pleasure of visiting. It’s a bustle in the daytime, and pulsates with nightlife. My husband particularly enjoyed the Salsa and Kizomba scene, easy to find with a quick search. What I love about this city is that I didn’t feel out of place, even though I don’t understand the language, and people just don’t bother you, everyone just goes about their business (read no Karening). I felt completely safe wherever we walked, even at night.

    It’s an expensive city though, so save your coins whenever you can. I highly recommend using the Metro to and from the airport, don’t use a meter taxi! If you’re staying a while, it’s worthwhile getting a long term pass/ticket or even a Rejsekort ticket which allows to you to use different types of public transport (bus, train, metro) across zones.

    Places I really enjoyed were:
    – Royal Smushi Cafe for a really beautiful cake and tea experience
    – Peter Beier Chocolates which has a small cafe, near Copenhagen Central Station
    – Njoy Juice and Sandwich Bar for healthy and clean light foods and freshly squeezed juices
    – Simply Wine in Ostebrø for fantastic tapas, pizza and wines
    – Freetown Christiana for a truly bohemian experience

    It’s also very easy to navigate, so the language isn’t such a huge barrier. If you love walking and enjoy nature, this city has beautiful public parks, you don’t have to go hiking to enjoy the natural scenery.

    Local Brown and Black people have many opinions of this city and the country, but as a visitor I really enjoy visiting Copenhagen. It’s history is evident, art is everywhere you look and even though it’s a busy city it’s strangely calm. I highly recommend!

    I loved Copenhagen, highly recommend a Kings and Castles tour, a great way of enjoying the architecture and learning the history. I also visited a Viking Museum, it was amazing to see their ships, it was like going back in time. Visiting Frederiksborg Castle, or just walking or taking a boat ride by the waterfront of the city, the little mermaid sculpture is a must-see. Buy tickets online to spend a day at TIVOLI, its an amusement park and beautiful gardens.

    Copenhagen is a free-spirited city that is perfect for solo travelers like me! I visited for 3 days and did not want to leave. I stayed in an Airbnb next to Frederiksberg park. The locals are friendly, environmentally conscious, and most people ride bikes.

    Things to know:
    -There is no uber or lyft in Denmark! It’s best to use public transport or rent a bike
    -The currency is Danish Krone not Euros!
    -The Little Mermaid structure is extremely popular. Visit early in the morning to avoid crowds
    -The Glyptotek museum is free on Tuesdays

    Things to do:
    -Go to Freetour.com and book a free walking tour! I booked the Christianshavn Walking Tour and it was great
    -Walk around Nyhvan to see colorful buildings and eat Danish food
    -Visit the Royal Palace of Amalienborg
    -Tivoli Gardens is a good option if you are traveling with kids
    -Book the Copenhagen Bus and Boat Hop-On, Hop-Off 48-Hour Pass! The canal tour is very peaceful and a great way to see the whole city
    -Climb the Church of Our Saviour to see the best view of the city!

    As an avid solo traveler I can definitely say that Copenhagen is perfect for a solo traveler. Granted I only did a layover in Copenhagen I had a great experience. It’s is very convenient and quick to get from the airport to the city where you can see and so some things. My layover was 5-6 hours and I was able to store my luggage at the airport. I took a canal tour, ate and literally walked around. Keep in mind they do not use the euro the use the Danish Krone.

    Wonderful hotel in a quiet part of Copenhagen but still in walking distance to the bars and restaurants. Skt Petri looks under rated on the outside but step inside to a completely different vibe. We had a superior room which gives you that little bit more space . They are lovely rooms and the bathrooms are also fab . My only gripe,and its a personal choice, is that the beds and pillows are too soft and although there are lovely toiletries in the bathroom, a proper soap dispenser would be better than a tiny bottle of soap, or make sure you take your own.

    I booked the junior suite and it costs about $400 usd per night.

    I went to Copenhagen for a weekend: relax and visit!

    Copenhagen or the city where people are happiest in Europe!
    I confirm it’s a city that breathes happiness. People are not stressed.
    The city is pleasant to live in summer.

    As in Amsterdam, it’s the city of bikes! Whether it’s sunny or raining, cycling

    They offer very wide streets and a large network of bike paths.
    You can park your bike on the subway and in the streets.
    There are even places full of bicycles.

    I ​​found accommodation on AirBnb located in the lovely Frederiksberg part og Copenhagen
    Distinctive? Old buildings and lots of trendy cafes and restaurants

    What to do?
    – Downtown
    – Nyhvan the old colorful harbor of Copenhagen
    -The Royal Palace of Amalienborg
    -the Tivoli Gardens
    -the Little Mermaid
    -The historic city center of Copenhagen is home to all the most famous tourist sites
    Distinctive? Paved streets, courtyards and downtown streets, shops, cafes, restaurants and historic buildings.
    – Nørrebro: Near the Nørreport train station.
    Distinctive? The coolest streets Jægersbroggade with many starred restaurants, cool cafes, vintage shops and wine bars, elmegade with night clubs and restaurants
    – The canals of Christianshavn district and the famous Christiania district: where to find all the best street art of the city

    Brunch and eat in Copenhagen?

    The nightlife in Europe in general is different from everywhere else in the world. They definitely tend to feed off of EDM and remixed music. But the vibe in every place is vibrant. The locals basically bop and hop around to the music, while we would vibe to the beat or booty shake or grind to the beat. The locals don’t really see that often but they love when they do because its different. Our culture is so different that at one point they remixed the gospel song “Shackles” and made it into dubstep. But there is one club in particular that we visited where they incorporated the Atlanta culture, which is also called Atlanta. I’m from Atlanta so you know I had to make an appearance in there and see what the hype was all about.

    Traveling While Black

    Copenhagen is a really vibrant city to visit. It’s compact enough to get around all of the main sights in a couple of days and you can even walk or bike a lot of the city’s centre it if you don’t fancy public transport. I found everyone really friendly and helpful and I never felt uncomfortable at all – even when I was coming back late at night.

    It has canals and you’ll see colourful buildings at it’s waterfront Nyhavn, which is always buzzing during the day or late into the night. I hung out there a couple of times and it’s very lively. It kind of reminds me of a trendier Amsterdam.

    The city has amazing views from street level or high up in some of its towers and if you have time, you should visit one of it’s palaces or castles, like Frederiksborg Castle or Kronborg Palace.

    Copenhagen can be an expensive city and a short weekend break may end up costing a small fortune, so make sure you plan for that. It’s definitely possible to find cheaper alternatives for eating out and you can still see a lot of the attractions and keep to a budget. I was there for 3 days and managed to spend just under £200 for everything (incl flights and accommodation)!

    You can even add another country to your trip by popping over to the city of Malmö in neighbouring Sweden. It’s possible to do a day trip there by crossing the Øresund – The Bridge.

    Copenhagen’s a quirky, cool city to visit for a weekend break. I went in May and it was the perfect time – it was actually really warm. I’d definitely visit again and if you do you should make sure you:

    – Visit Nyhavn
    – Climb to the top of The Round Tower
    – Stroll around Christianshavn and along Gammel Strand
    – See fortress Kastellet
    – Grab a hotdog at the well-known DØP (Den Okologiske Polsemand) near The Round Tower

    Denmark is a beautiful location with lots of history and architecture to throw you into beautiful viking history and instance romance. Copenhagen is full of beautiful bright colored buildings, a castle fit for a queen, and woodsy areas next to lakes that are perfect for brisk walks! The food is fresh however very different if you are use to American cuisine as even their ketchup and hotdogs taste different. Overall a beautiful destination
