    A trip on the Hill a good summer day is a wonderful experience. Although there are wonderful puzzle relation to baby sizes is not a Hill so baby friendly place. Of course, there are a lot of people, but there are quite unnecessary loud music from most rides right from the start the opening hours. Just think kids should be a minimum of 3 years for best experience. The quality of the restaurants also vary a lot and can be quite miserable for high prices! But the thrilling rides, queue wait times, parking facilities and the general atmosphere is top notch on the Hill!

    Cozy and a little less amusement park with lots of places to eat and get a beer. Free entry and there's probably something for all ages here so don't miss out on this. Next to the amusement park is a great park that according to task has been the King's hunting area, but we do not know for sure if it is true. Opportunity to go autumn Hackney cab through the Park are also available.

    In the summer we had a ride on the Hill. A place especially my wife had long wanted to visit. We had ordered turbånd in advance and been looking forward to this day. In particular, we were interested in seeing Korsbaek. First wondered why the US much that we first opened for dinner during high season. Secondly, that we supposedly could not enter and view K-the houses inside without having bought guided tour. We were in any case dismissed on the grounds that when we tried to open the door. The place was very noisy, and it was almost like being at the disco everywhere. We could barely talk together. Can it really pay off for the drivers of horse-drawn carriages to keep quiet most of the time? I wonder if this is because of the insane prices of over 500 kr for a trip? Why not cut prices, and give more experience? After 4 hours, we think that we had seen and experienced it there was interesting and was all ready to take home again.

Where to stay in Copenhagen

Most of the hotels in Copenhagen are located in the central Vesterbro or hip Indre By areas, though there are many more adventurous (and somewhat more affordable) places to stay during your vacation. As in the rest of Denmark, accommodations in Copenhagen are quite expensive. If you're traveling on a tight budget, consider camping along the Mølleå River or staying in one of the city's many backpacker hostels. If you prefer an inexpensive hotel, explore options in the Helgolandsgade and Colbjørnsensgade neighborhoods. For a taste of Denmark's art scene, head to the up-and-coming Kongens Nytorv and Nyhavn areas. Travelers who like to stay outside of the main tourist areas should set their sights on one of the city's suburbs, like the northern section where you can stay at a beachfront hotel or on a houseboat.
