With only 550.000 inhabitans, the capital of Denmark is not a big city. Just like Amsterdam it feels more like a very big village. But still, there's lot of fun to have in this tolerant city.
People are friendly, but also disciplined. Like with all Scandinavians, they can be a bit 'closed' at first sight. But after a chat (and sometimes a little bit of alcohol) will do the job.
Talking about alcohol, catch some sun at the terrace of one the dozens restaurants and bars in the harbour area of Nyhavn.
Walk a bit further and go to 'seaside' of the city to salute the Little Mermaid. The famous figure from writer Hans Christian Andersen is the pride of the city. Although, she is smaller than you might expect, and....she lost her head a few times...
Copenhangen citizens are addicted to coffee and beer. Don't even try to get a seat on a terrace during Saturday afternoon, when loads of couples with baby strollers 'occupy' the coffeebars. And of course, in the evenings, things go wild in plenty of bars and clubs.
Since the Danish are not part of the Euro, you'll have to pay with the Danish Krone, which is a bit more expensive than the Euro, what makes your trip to Copenhagen not a really cheap one, but also not that expensive.
And when you're tired of Cophenhagen, take the train or hit the road and pass the Oresund bridge and visit Malmö in Sweden. Far more smaller than Copenhagen, but really lovely.
So next time when you think of a weekendbreak. Forget London, Paris or Barcelona. Hit Copenhagen and enjoy your weekend in the Danish city.
