Compared to other countries, Denmark is on the expensive side. A visit to Copenhagen can be pricey, but it doesn’t have to be. From inexpensive to free, there are plenty of ways to spend time in this gorgeous city without having to drain the wallet.
For starters, stop at the Little Mermaid statue in Nyhavn. This famous statue pays tribute to author Hans Christian Anderson. The changing of the guard at Amalienborg Palace and a walk through the Royal Garden is also free.
A great way to see the city is to rent a bike. Simply find one of the city’s “blue bikes” and rent it for the day. The best part? At the end of the day when you return it, you get your money back. If biking isn’t your thing, a single ticket on a bus can take you to all the great spots in town, including the Little Mermaid Statue.
For beer-lovers, check out the Carlsberg Visitor’s Center. Here, you can taste beers and tour the facility for less than 100 DKK.
