Trip Report Our long weekend in Copenhagen, October 7-10, 2011

Jump to last reply

I'll post this in pieces, starting with tombstone data on our travel. More detail later on favourite sights and our impressions of the city.

Traveled by:
KLM, on a special four-day promotion of just over $700 Cdn return, from Montreal QC. Travel was Montreal- Amsterdam- Copenhagen. The deal included a free stopover in Amsterdam on our departure from Denmark.

For about $160 Cdn., we purchased a pair of open-jaws KLM flights Amsterdam-Lyon and Marseille-Amsterdam. That part of the trip will be the subject of a separate trip report.

Most valuable local resource for visitors: The Copenhagen Card.

Purchasing online, we received the cards and a guidebook by mail before we left. The guidebook was a very useful planning tool, with a short description, opening hours and other essential information for each site the card covers.

We paid only $50 Cdn each for a three-day card. (Other durations are available). This gave us unlimited access to buses, the subway and the extensive suburban train network. It also gave us free admission to city museums and multiple attractions in and around Copenhagen, including an hour-long harbour/ canal cruise.

We activated the card at the airport and used it first to take the metro to our hotel. I calculated that the card paid for itself in 1 day of heavy museum-going, including bus and metro trips.
