We are preparing a two weeks trip to Denmark for next summer (August) with 5 years old children. Could you recommend the best route? My plan would be three different places to stay: 3-4 days in Copenhaguen, 6 in Billund (2 days in Legoland and I don't know where else), and other 6 in a different place (?). Our interests are nice villages, short hikes in the woods, warm beaches (in terms of temperature and atmosphere), playgrounds and other children activities...
Thank you very much.
Hello I will be flying to Copenhagen from Australia. I want to buy warm clothes for my children and me, such as a budget down uniqlo style jacket or other (easy to pack and light) in Copenhagen. I am hoping a big department store sells a budget line of travel wear? Is there one that sells online and I can pick-up in store when I get there?
Thanks for your kind help in advance.
Are there any parts of Denmark that are safer or have very low crime, for example Odense or Ærø?
During tour we need locksmith service provider my friend suggest me http://låsesmed-låsesmed.dk for Låsesmed Døgnvagt.. now gives me other best companies suggestion
Further to my earlier request, I was able to find the hotel details for first 2 nights. It is Fagerenes, and not sure if that is in center of Copenhagen. Just in case I need to find my way from airport to the hotel to join the tour group, can anyone help please with directions, metro, bus or shuttle. Trying to avoid costly taxi expense.
Thanks to all.
I normally travel solo, but because I have not been to any of cities and was told its expensive, decided to book a land package which will cover route from Copenhagen, returning via Stockholm where I will get flight to Dublin for overnight to return to JFK.
I tour details that cover mostly hotels with breakfast daily, one dinner is included but will need to prepare to handle the expenses as I travel onward. Understand some places are not in Eurozone and need help trying to budget using currencies other than Sterling and Euros. I am experienced senior traveler and enjoy light meals.
I normally enjoy a good breakfast, light lunch (yogurt, fruits, sandwich or soups) and then look forward to full dinner each evening. I live in NY and not sure where I can purchase foreign currencies. Does anyone know what kind of transportation is available from Copenhagen airport in case my flight arrives late and might miss tour pick up bus? How far is airport from city and is there a metro or coach from airport to reach city or surroundings?
Looking forward to help if someone is accustomed to this route. Thank you.
I was in lovely Copenhagen, Elsinor, Hillerod and Roskilde the last time I travelled to Denmark.
This Time I have the possibillty to book a flight to Billund in early september for a full 5 days (the flight back is on the sixth day). My question - How can I plan this trip so I can see the most interesting/beautiful places?
I'm 30, but I think the lego land is an experience I should see... so should I stay also for 1 night in billund? Where should I go next? Should I go to Fyn to stay 1 night in odense? should I go to Aarhus for 1 night too? Mostly I like to explore outdoor activities such as beautiful nature and enjoy the beautiful streets vibes better than cathedrals and museums....
It's also important to add that I plan to do everything by trains so I hope it won't be expensive.. is there a card I can buy like the copenhagen card I bought on my last trip?
I can take the flight back from Billund or from Copenhagen but I want to plan it first so I know what's the better option.... Thanks in advance for all the help!! :)
do you know any car parking in the vicinity of Tønder or the Wadden Sea national park which is relatively cheap for a stay of around 2 weeks?
Thanks in advance!
I've got a question regarding taking bikes on trains in Denmark, especially in Jutland. I understand it is quite common to do so, but there still are a few things I'm unsure of:
-is it necessary to remove your pedals to reduce the size of the bike?
-do you have to cover your bike with some material, like in Spanis buses?
-can you take a bike on long-distance trains, say, from Aalborg to Flensburg?
-what is the relationship between the price of a bike ticket and the price of a ticket for a person?
-how much time in advance are tickets for bikes usually still available? How probable is it to be able to bu a ticket on the same day as you want to depart?
I have a e cigarette, I'm going to flying from Seattle, WA to Copenhagen tomorrow and I'm wondering if I could bring it with??
Is it necessary if a foot passenger to buy a ticket in advance for this ferry? I notice on the Stenaline website that prices seemed to be at a fixed price.
I asked my husband what he wanted to do for his birthday and he wanted to travel over the "bridge" w ecare a family of 4 and wanting to combine the following things. 1 GitHub , 2 day entrence to legoland and a trip over the bridge. I'm thinking fly into Copenhagen pick up a car hire. Go to Billund for two nights. Come back drop off car hire. Stay in Copenhagen for 3 nights, taking in sights and doing a day return over bridge to Malmö. Is this durable or is it just as easy to take train to Billund?
I would like to know is it practically a good idea to drive from Viborg, Denmark to Belfast, UK. If yes can anyone suggest me on the things which I need to take note of such as cost for toll, ferry availability to get into UK and so...
Your reply is highly appreciated :)

I'm currently planning our holiday for Sweden and Denmark and have a few questions. I've posted a similar question in the Sweden forum, but have a few Denmark-specific questions, so that's why it's here twice. Our idea is to travel in mid-May as Germany has some rather long Pentecost holidays this year (starting 14 May, returning 29 May). We will probably fly into Copenhagen (unless Malmö or Gothenburg are better options) and will then stay there for 3 days before going on to see some friends in Hörby in Sweden.
We thought about renting a car, but does that make sense at all given the traffic and the strict controls between Denmark and Sweden (due to the refugee crisis)? Would travelling around Hörby be possible without a car? I'm sure our friends could take us around for a day, but we don't want to be too much of a nuisance to them. Also, is it easy / possible to take a rental car from Denmark to Sweden and vice versa?
That said, we thought about going down to Ystad and taking the ferry to Bornholm for a day - does that make any sense or is that way too much for one day? Our guidebook seems to be of the opinion that you could easily spend a full holiday on Bornholm. Does taking a ferry from Bornholm to Sjaelland make any sense? It seems to run some 6 or 7 hours and do the crossing at night, but would we really save time instead of going back the same way?
After our Sweden time, we'd like to spend the rest of the time on Sjaelland, Mon and Fyn, depending on how far we get. Would you say it's necessary to pre-book accommodation in mid-/late May? Would Fyn be possible at all or is there too much to see on Sjaelland and Mon?
Another idea was to go camping at least a few times - are the majority of campgrounds open in mid-May? My impression from the guidebook was that everything starts rather late, at least in Sweden.
Any help is highly appreciated!
Hi, I am travelling from Copenhagen airport to Roskilde and then returning 10 days later. What is my best ticket option to travel by train? Many thanks in advance!
Hello all, I'm a female traveler venturing off to Copenhagen this November for my first solo trip. I've researched what the weather was like and it tends to be cooler and "wetter" so they say. I will be going in the middle of November and plan on just bringing one piece of luggage with me if possible (plus a personal carry on) since I don't want to be lugging my suitcase all over the place.
I was wondering what are the quintessential items i should bring for a five day trip: clothing wise, footwear (Was going to bring sneakers and maybe a pair of boots?), toiletries (should i worry about bringing certain things like shampoo etc. if staying in a hostel), adapters, umbrella?
Any help in what to bring would be greatly appreciated. I want whatever clothes I bring to be able to accommodate any unforeseen weather changes.
I've also researched what sights and attractions I want to see. But does anyone have any must-have definite things to see or do? I was also wondering if the kayak republic operates around November since I couldn't find any information on that or would be doing a boat tour at the Nyhavn sufficient?
I also like to travel a little off the beaten path. Is it worth making a day trip over to Malmo? Is there enough to see and do for just one day?
Also any recommendations on hostels would be great. I was debating between the generator hostel, danhostel, or copenhagen downtown hostel.
I'm in my mid twenties and ready for some adventure.
Thank you for any help!
Hello, I'll be in Denmark, arriving at Billund airport. I plan to take trains and buses from Billund and eventually reach Copenhagen. I don't have a set time frame yet as I plan to fly from Copenhagen to Amsterdam and have yet to book my ticket.
I'm wondering if it's worth it to purchase the Eurail pass (120$ for 4 days)? I haven't quite decided what and how many stops I will make yet (for now I'm thinking Aarhus definitely, probably staying roughly along the line that route E20 goes? unless any one has suggestions on where to go, I am very open as well ~ just haven't had time outside of school and work to research as of yet), but I'll probably need to pay out of pocket for shorter distances and use the pass for longer distances. ????????
I was originally thinking to stay in Denmark for a total of 7 days, but is that enough? Too much?
I'll have just graduated university so time is not really an issue for me as of yet :) Thank you!
Dear all, a friend and I want to visit Copenhagen late September. We can't see any reasonable hotels / B&Bs online. Would it be safe to turn up and see what's available on the day - maybe go to the tourist / visitor centre and ask? We'd likely arrive on a Sunday and it looks as though the visitor centre is open until 2pm?
My daughter and my grandson will be taking the bus and train ( no car )from Kerteminde to Copenhagen airport in mid September. Their flight is in the early evening, so they will have time to stop on their way. They would like to visit a Viking site, since the Vikings are a big subject in Kindergarden right now.
We've read about the Viking ship in Kerteminde and of course about the National Museum in Copenhagen.Is there any other Viking site on the way from Kerteminde to Copenhagen? Maybe a outdoor museum like a Viking village?
I read about the Trelleborg Fortress, but it seems you nee a car to get there and it's only open for the festival.
Thank you for any information.
I'm thinking of visiting Denmark in late Sept / October. Clearly I'm not after hot weather, but how cold does it get this time of year e.g. at night? Do many of the main tourist attractions close out of season? I'd like to see Copenhagen and a few places around, relying mainly on public transport if possible. Thanks for any thoughts! L
Hi... My son and I will be in Denmark next week and don't have all of our transport and housing figured out yet.
We'd like to get from Billund or Kolding to the Blavand and Romo beaches. How is the public transport? Should we just hire a car? Also, is there a good two or three day public transport pass?
And... What's a good inexpensive (we don't need frills) place to stay in or near Odense?

With over 49 destination cities in Denmark listed in VT, I need guidance. I will have a week from October 12th to get out of Copenhagen. I will eventually read through most of the VT recommendations as I prepare to travel, but I have a friend who is considering joining me and he wants an idea in the next week or so of what we might plan to see and do at that time of year. Kronborg seems like one place, but I need help?
Is it possible to cycle across the bridge between Nyborg and Korsør? If not, is there a bus connection?
Hello! This is going to be a relatively hefty question but ...
I'm planning on going on a 2~3 month long trip through Scandinavia+ parts of Europe after I graduate from university. Of course my budget will be limited but at the same time money is not the issue for now ...
I was wondering more how long it would be recommended for me to stay in each country? Of course it varies by person , but maybe an average? A week? a few days? And most importantly, when I should go?
My interests are quite varied-- when I traveled through Asia, I did a lot of shopping, mostly stayed in big cities, and threw some action in , but I also really really like nature, like the countryside, or the mountains, so I was hoping to concentrate more on that and then maybe go to the city for 1~2 days ??? I'm honestly up for any kind of suggestion and can just pick and choose what sounds most suitable for what I want?
At the mention of the mountains, I see a lot of photos that I assume are taken around the valleys between mountain ranges ... Is it safe to assume that a lot of people just hitch tents up on the mountains and sleep there? Is it legal to just hitch a tent up anywhere?
If I play to fly between the countries , would I be allowed to have a tent in my carry on .. if it even fits? I kind of wanted to go in winter~spring time so I'm not sure if it's even too freezing cold to do that without risking my health at that time. My main priority is of course to see the aurora borealis, so I need to be in Norway when it's still relatively cold .. which means I would need to go either late autumn into the early winters, or late winters into the early spring.
I also really really like polar bears so I would hope to see some of them roaming about but I don't think that's really feasible..
I have tons more questions but I feel I should stop here for now? Are there any native Scandinavians that can please bestow me with knowledge? Thank you so much for taking the time to read my questions !
Does anyone have any comments about or has used Norwegian Airlines? We are planing to use Norwegian Airlines to fly between Copenhagen and Edinburgh Scotland. They show nonstop flights and we are asking for any input on their service, quality, etc. All comments are greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance.
We will drive from Copenhagen to Kolding,then to Hamburg. I want to know how much is the bridge tolls and the highway tolls? thanks.
