I love them both... but would come down on the Stockholm side. Don't know where your interests lie but the Vasa museum in Stockholm is fantastic. Also,the tour of the Town Hall where the Noble prizes are awarded is worth the time. After the summer one can still visit, Drottingholm, Gripsholm etc. by public transporation. But if you go to Copenhagen, check out Louisiana ( contemporary art gallery outside of copenhagen)and get good advice as to where to have lunch of open faced sandwiches.

I've been to both Copenhagen and Stockholm twice in the past year. Both are lovely cities with much to offer visitors. However, I would go back to Copenhagen before Stockholm because of the friendliness of the Danish people. Also, eating the Danish pastries are quite magical.

I would recommend visiting the Swim Centre with a pool with a climbing wall

Or visit the Children’s Science Centre

Welcome to Denmark!

Get them their own train passes; get yourself a guidebook and start out like tourists so you get familar with the history and your surroundings.
Let them take the train independently(once they are oriented) to their school, so that they will not be overwhelmed when classes begin.
Get bikes.
Study simple phrases in Danish(door, exit,thank you,meat, fish,...) so it isn't all so foreign to the kids.
The kids probably will be required to study Danish in school- even if you are only there on temporary assignment with a job.
For fun - visit Rosenborg Slot(castle).Have the kids look up info about dungeons then take them to Kronborg Castle (it's an easy train ride to Helsingor).
Because of the time of year you'll arrive in CPN, it will be cold; outdoor activities will be limited; pick a time and stroll the Stroget (a walking street with shops), and walk thru Nyhavn.
The National Museum might be something to do, followed by a meal at Mongolian BBQ on Stormgade 35, near the museum.My kids got a real kick out of Mongolian BBQ, as that was new to them.

Start slow; the kids will make friends and will probably tell you in 18 months they don't want to go back to USA. They will adjust to not having 99 cable channels of TV!
Look forward to visiting Tivoli Gardens and Bakken in the spring. Good luck.
