Okay... so I have 7 hours in Copenhagen on Tuesday. What to do and see? Yes, I read the thread...Where the best Indian resturant? Thanks!

Unfortunately I didn't make it to an Indian restaurant. I found it absolutely beautiful there but very, very expensive.

 

Do you want to do a tour or just to go out and eat/drink? What cuisine do you want to avoid?

Check out Al-diwan for Indian, more info at http://www.aok.dk/profile/3173.

 

Have to see Christiana, more info here http://goeurope.about.com/od/christiania/,

and you can also eat at veg/oragnic place called Morgenstedet, more info at http://www.aok.dk/profile/6705.

 

Walk down the main walking street called Strøget, eat a Weinerbrød(danish) at a bakery. Yummy.

 

Go to Ny Havn and drink beer, http://www.copenhagenpictures.dk/nyhavn.html.

 

The metro connects the two. Note: the ticket you buy for two zones is valid for all transport(bus,train,metro) for one hour from the time printed on your ticket.

 

If the weather is nice (never is :blink: ) then take a Canal Tour boat and see the city that way, you also get to see the little mermaid from the back and see all the tourists taking pics of her. (NB she is small!!)

 

Have fun :D

Christiana as in Christianshavn? I didn't bother going there since my Danish friend said it's not very good there anymore (only went through there on a boat tour).

@KB there is a difference between the two but they are next to each other. Christianhavn is sweet with old Danish/Dutch style buildings but Christiania is an old barricks the hippies took over in the 60/70's and have built up an interesting society. Alot of architects and artists live there and have built some interesting places to live. What society would be like with less restrictions. Not everyones cup of tea but interesting to see.

Hash and grass are still sold there but unlike is used to be +/- 2 years ago where it was openly on the street. Even if you are anti drug still go to have a look.

There is great church next to it with a twisted tower, on a sunny day go for the 400 step trip up and view Copenhagen and on a good day Sweden too.

It must have been Christiana my friend told me to avoid because it wasn't as good as it was before because of the crack (excuse the pun) down by the government.

Update: the fantastic website providing a great overview of what was happening in Copenhagen has shut down ( http://www.ctw.dk )

 

What a pity :( I loved that guide.

Strange... every time this thread becomes active, either in I am in Denmark... or just booked my flight there. Be back in February.

By the way, there is another thread concerning Copenhagen.

Denmark has a great beer scene. Besides the aforementioned Jacobsen brewery and tour (admittedly, I recommend that as a daytime or afternoon tour, the bar itself is not really geared towards a cozy atmosphere), here are some other stops for the beer geek in you:

 

1. Mikeller Bar (walking distance from the main train station - although you may have to dodge a few hookers on the way there)

 

2. Ørsted Ølbar

 

3. Nørrebro Bryghus

 

4. Ølbaren

any updated eating/drinking recs for Copenhagen?

 

excellent restos with...oh I dunno what to call it - experimental?  progressive? nordic cuisine would be especially interesting, but anything that lit your fire in the last year or two would be great
