General Info: I spent 2 days in Copenhagen after a week conference in Rungstedgaard (less than an hour north of the capital, by train). The Danish capital is a very nice and relaxing place for a city break. The weather was great (sunny most of the time), and perfect to explore the canals and wander in the districts on foot or by bike.

 
 
 

TRAVEL PLAN

Day Area What to Do
1 London – Copenhagen – Rungsted Kyst The town has a nice marina and park/woods where I spent some time after the conference. Among the other things it is possible to visit the Karen Blixen Museet (museum of modern art). The venue for the conference was great in terms of both accommodation and food.
2 Rungsted Kyst – Copenhagen Nyhavn (new harbor) – Fristaden Christiania (freetown Christiania) – Christianshavns Vold – Nyhavn
From the central train station it is easy to reach the Nyhavn area (half an hour on foot, crossing the city centre or 15 minutes by taxi for 100 DKK circa). I had a quick look around an then decided to move towards the Christianshavns Kanal. I had a nice walk and reached the Experimentarium (science museum) before stopping at the farmer’s market on the side of the museum for a cheap (for Danish standards) and tasty Belgian lunch (several international stands of street-food can be found in the market).
Then I moved towards the freetown of Christiania, social experiment, ‘Green Light District’… and major tourist attraction. Although tolerated in this area, it is illegal to sell or possess marijuana in Denmark, which explains why the sellers avoid to show their face and explicitly ask not to make photos within the main area. Behind the district, the Christianshavns Vold, part of the bastioned fortification ring which used to surround Copenhagen, today a nice park to have a walk.
Finally I headed back to the Nyhavn, stopping at Church of Our Saviour, also famous for the panorama view from the bell tower. Once in Nyhavn I had dinner and then went back to the hotel.
The hotel is in a great location, but really not a great value for the money in terms of comfort and cleanliness.
3 Copenhagen – London Canal Tour – Kastellet – City Centre
The second day in Copenhagen I took one of the many tours by boat of the canals (40 DKK) which in my case lasted around one hour. Once back at the Nyhavn, I crossed the city centre to reach the kastellet (the city ancient fortress) and meet the little mermaid, the iconic bronze sculpture, of a character from H.C. Andersen’s Fairy-Tale House.
From the Kastellet I walked towards the Rosenborg Castle, then through the castle gardens, the King’s New Square (at present partially covered due to the new metro under construction) and back to the hotel where I took back my baggage before stopping for lunch at the Almanak, former ferry-boat station (usual good but incredibly overpriced food).
Finally I crossed the city centre towards the central station via Amagertorv and Frederiksberggade, historical and shopping area.
General comment about the Danish food: it is usually good and tasty, but incredibly overpriced… and strangely small portions (a-la nouvelle cuisine)! What the rest of the world calls “starter”, in Denmark seems to be a meal.
