Help plan trip to Coppenhagen and Stockholm

Jump to last reply

My husband (70) and I (65) are planning a 10-12 day visit to both these cities end of June /July of 2017. We are from the USA and are trying to "shape" our trip. From info I've gathered so far, many like Coppenhagen, but urge more time allowed in visiting Stockholm. I am an above knee amputee, get around quite well, but am definitely not a long distance walker everyday, so please take that into consideration when offering your wise advice. These are some beginning questions:

1) Which city best/easier/less costly to fly into/out of? We will do open jaw trip, flying into one-out the other. Any airlines liked over others and why?

2) It sounds like it is best to be in the center of the city to see most attractions. I realize that the temperatures are not hot, but an amputee functions best when dressing, etc in an AC environment so the prosthesis fits best for walking outside. An elevator is also a must in the hotel. Steps are harder and there are plenty in visiting attractions. I don't need more upon returning to rest. We can afford nice hotels, but no need to "break the bank" as most of the time we hope to be out seeing the sights and food, and meeting new people. So---thoughts on nice hotels?

3) What is the best way to get from one city to the other, and any side trips you think are a must out of either of these lovely places?

4) Are there any festivals or city happenings in those two months we would want to avoid as then the city can become jammed with visitors?

I appreciate any knowledge you can share in helping us get started in our planning.
