Copenhagen & Stockholm

I'm thinking about visiting Copenhagen for 4 or 5 days in Feb or Mar. Not sure what I would do there yet. <BR><BR>What options to flying are there if I wanted to make a side trip (1 or 2 nights) to Stockholm. I thought I read about a bridge-tunnel linking the two, but don't know if it is planned or complete. I am guessing that a boat trip would be too long.<BR>

The bridge links Copenhagen to Malm&ouml; in the south of Sweden. A car trip, over the bride and to Stockholm, would take all day, I believe, and a train from Copenhagen to Stockholm would take most of a day. I don't know what your interests are, but there is enough in Copenhagen, northern Zealand, and perhaps a side trip to Roskilde, Odense, or Koge (slash through o) to keep one busy.<BR>I like Stockholm and Copenhagen very much, but considering the distance between, four days for the two may not be sufficient.

Bill, I would agree with boots - however, if you felt a strong need to see Stockholm, you could do a night train from Copenhagen and then sail from Stockholm back to Copenhagen. The Archipelago is quite stunning to sail out of. Alternatively, a flight to/from Copenhagen would be cheap and easy - especially if you flew SAS into Copenhagen.<BR><BR>I spent 5 days in Copenhagen and felt I could have spent my lifetime. I really loved the place. I like Stockholm a lot, but not quite as much as Copenhagen.<BR><BR>Dress warm.<BR><BR>If you want a quick and easy escape into Sweden, go up to Helsignor and take the ferry over to Helsingburg (or visa versa). <BR><BR>(e-mail me if I can answer any more questions about what to do/see around copenhagen)<BR><BR> Good luck.

Bill,<BR>The bridge was opened 2 years ago. There is a train that leaves every 20 minutes from Copenhagen crossing over to Malmo. The night train takes 7 hours, including a short wait in the Malmo train station. The new X2000 trains leave Copenhagen for Stockholm (no train changes) nearly every hour, and speed over to Stockholm in 5 hours. You could take one of the early evening trains and get to Stockholm late in the evening.<BR><BR>It is, of course, much quicker to fly.<BR><BR>Hope this helps.

Hi<BR><BR>Just a small point .......<BR><BR>Someone said take the boat back to Copenhagen. This would be a very long trip.<BR><BR>However boat trips from Denmark to Gothenburg are available, and could be interesting.<BR><BR>Peter<BR><BR>

Without knowing what your interests are, it's difficult to say whether the trip would be worth it. I'd been in Copenhagen about 2 days when I decided to go to Malmo just for the heck of it.<BR><BR>At one time, you could fly to Stockholm from Copenhagen for $150 r/t if you had a ticket on SAS from the US into Copenhagen or Helsinki. Check with SAS.<BR><BR>Copenhagen is by far my favorite city in Europe and I am fortunate that my company sends me there for a couple of weeks every 6 months or so. In fact, Im leaving tomorrow for a week. I can hardly wait.

<BR>Thanks a lot for the replies. I will plan to take that 5 hour train ride (the Swedish tilting train) and visit both cities. I'll do it when the days are longer and I have two weeks to spend. I do want to get out into the country . For now, though, I've had enough of the cold weather, so I'm going to L.A. in March instead.<BR><BR>Bill<BR>

What if you had 15 days in Copenhagen than would the trip be worth it?
