  • You can find this in one of several turf when you scroll up and down the strøget. Not by the main attractions but dumps you into it so there is nothing to be embarrassed about.

  • Currently a massive construction site .. but you can still see the beautiful buildings all around the square. Still worth a minute on your way to Nyhaven.  more »
  • This is the square in front of the new haven. Even though I feel the greatness freezes, this building would get used because everybody around is just like building, making the landscape

  • Located at the heart of the city, this square is one of the loveliest as well as liveliest places you could visit in Copenhagen. It is currently affected by the construction of a nearby metro station, which is scheduled to continue until 2018, so not much is to be seen there, but few steps you got the canal tour.
  • Very interesting spot to wunder given its centrality. Definitely visit
  • 5th (or was it 6th?) town hall of Copenhagen. Several free walking tours start here. We went on one by Sandeman led by Allen who was wonderful. Great way to get your bearings in the city, learn about the history, and get some tips from a local.
  • Another nice square! Fancy buildings and good for strolling around.
  • I enjoyed a walk from here to the Copenhagen street food. There is quite a good few photo opportunity from here.

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.
