Seriously we don't realize on this forum what a resource Freki is. SSP is way too Canada/US dominated and to bring in a voice from Denmark, a country who truely "gets it", is very important because it can open our mind to a society that is not so selfish. In the US its all about, hey I've got mine and good luck to the rest, most people aren't aware of the sickening wealth disparity in this country. When we listen to Freki and see how Danes think it puts life in a whole new perspective. A nation built on taking care of its citizens needs is one that we really need to look at and try to emulate.

to Freki and the Danish people who have fought for so long to set up the society they now have today.

Freki, I am visiting Copenhagen next month. Apart from Norrebro, Vesterbro, and Ørestad, are there any districts that you recommend checking out? The usual: architecture, coffee, cafés, neighborhoods, restos, etc. Thanks!

Depends on how much time you have and what your interests are..

Inner city, Old Town and Downtown are probable the most interesting to tourists, but only gives a very limited view of what Copenhagen is, so getting outside the "Lakes" is a good choice.. a personal favorite is Frederiksberg, but Østerbro, Nørrebro and Vesterbro is interesting places too - each with their own vibe and atmosphere..

A little further out you can go north and see Tuborg Havn ( in the Hellerup District ) where you will find some very interesting architecture IMO and some of the most expensive apartments in the Kingdom.. while up there a walk/drive up the "Strandvej" can give you a glimps of how the rich Danes on the left with the ocean and coast of Sweden on the right..
If you go all the way North you'll hit Helsingør ( Elsingore ) where "Hamlet" took place ( fictive story btw ) with a fairly charming city center and the Kronborg Castle..

A nicer castle is found in Hillerød ( see my Denmark thread for some of the castles and such in proximity of Copenhagen ) so if castles have your interest a S-train trip or drive there could be worth while..

Another interesting district in terms of modern architecture is "Havneholmen" ( available trough the Habourbus ferries ) or the Islands brygge/Kalvebod Brygge area ( the Fisketorvet Shopping center's roof parking area has a nice view over the area )

The Ørestad District you have already mentioned

And if you have the time and want to visit Sweden it's only a 40min train ride away..


PT is not cheap ( make sure to look at the day/week pass or 10 trip cards etc because buying a ticket at the bus, on a station or trough SMS is a very expensive solution that is nearly twice as expensive as the other options ) but it covers vrtually verywhere you want to go and gets you there pretty fast..

Remember Denmark uses the honor system so you will not be checked when entering trains, S-trains or Metro and most busdrivers will probable not check either, but there are inspectors and getting caught without a valid ticket is a 750 DKK fine so if in doubt ask ( there should be English text on ticket machinces as well as tickets, but do be affraid to ask people instead of taking any chances )

The national travel guide ( with routes, prices, etc - English available ) www.rejseplanen.dk

Alternatively there are places that rent out bikes or the free city bikes where you depostit a coin that you get back once you return it - just note that these are limited to a few districts..


Other that that if I can be of any assistance let me know.. and have a great trip.. ( not the best time of year to visit as the weather swings radically at this time of year - last saturday I was in thh woods in T-shirt with sun and 20C a week later it's nearly 0C and I had gloves on when I biked - so be prepared for everything ( though frost and snow is very rare before Yule it can happen if the actic pressures forces cold air down )

Seriously, Freki, beautiful pictures as always, but isn't it a little cruel to be posting summertime photos at this time of year?
