Has anybody been to @Copenhagen lately?
I am planning my budget in order to spend a 3 days there as part of a two weeks trip.
If someone could give me any tips on the daily little things you usually spend on, it would be great!
How much for a pint at a local pub, for example. For a coffee, having lunch at a regular restaurant, and so on.
Thank you all :) !!!
We were in Copenhagen for 6 days just 4 weeks ago. As Helen said, it is expensive but we found it cheaper than Amsterdam. In the mornings , we usually had pastry, coffee and orange juice at a bakery, not Starbucks and it was about €4-5 each. Starbucks espresso will run you over €5 alone which was shocking to us. Lunch can be had for about €15 if you do the daily special. Dinner will run about €20 each or more depending. Make sure you visit
I think you will enjoy the visit. Do the boat tour..we found it for much cheaper than average and the post has the info. Like $6 l think for the hour. Have fun. A beer is cheap and we found a lot of people drinking openly on the street, so your best bet is to get it from a grocery store. You could always do that for lunch or dinner as well. There are a ton of kebab places where you can eat for about €5 if on a budget.
We were in Copenhagen just before Christmas, we found it expensive compared to the UK. Two pints of beer, two veggie burgers and some chips were well over 30 euros, two coffees and two sandwiches around 15-20 euros.
I was in Copenhagen last Autumn and it is pretty expensive compared with other European cities. Here are a few tips:
(1) Public transport is really efficient and good value if you buy a city pass online. You can get a 24 or 72 hour pass which is usable for all buses, trains, harbour buses and metros. If you by online your number will be sent by text to you. Just show this if you're asked by a ticket inspector onboard. Hire a bike and travel like a local. It's really safe here.
(2) Eat in Torvehallerne a brilliant market which has everything you could possibly want to eat! I picked up really nice salads for lunch and great juices for equivalent of about €8. Street food is good too (and cheap) The Latin Quarter is a good area for good, reasonable places to eat. Beer was about €5-€7 a pint and a glass of wine cost anything from €5-€12
Taxis are expensive here. Lots of museums are free or have free entry days.
