  • If you stumble upon one of those days where the weather is less than great (and let´s be honest - we do have a few of those here) go to Arbejdermuseet. Or better yet - stroll through the Botanical Gar...  more »
  • This place is the best place to take children and adults to. Facing return again and again and I have not seen a museum ever be as accomplished, interesting and relevant. It is sober and Chamber not exceeding in political propaganda, but tells the story of several important impacts. Fantastic. Take food with in there or shop in the lovely cafe. Take you good time.

  • I come often at Work the Museum and every time one can experience I my life in the permanent exhibitions. The children's Museum is also a good Working experience when I have grandkids with.

  • I loved this museum. They really put you in the shoes of the working class as it's changed since the early twentieth century up until today, and also touch on social issues while they're at it. A family who loves in Copenhagen for several decades and preserved their apartment donated it to the museum and you can see all of their appliances and even the decorations from their walls. A great way to experience history that is very recent and yet often feels worlds away due to the massive changes that took place during the last century.
  • A really interesting museum! I wasn't expecting too much from this, but it was fascinating! Great to see history from a different angle. It's over multiple floors and spread across lots of eras and rooms. There's even a flat that was donated by a woman and the items/wallpaper/doors have even been moved over into this building to recreate it. A great insight into someone's everyday life across the decades. The site itself had been bought by the worker's party and its history comes right up to the modern day. There's a small cafe where you can try food/drink from an earlier age. The shop is really good and has some really interesting items. Would be a good place for buying some unique holiday gifts!
  • Everybody should visit this amazing place, showing how people lived and worked in Denmark in the past
  • Interesting details about 1950ies and before. Very enlightening special exebition on Slavery. Well worth the money. Be sure to visit on a saturday. You can enjoy a great traditional danish lunch in the restaurant below, at a decent price.
  • We went here for a company event. The facilities are nice and the food was alright as well. The working-class vibe is present but not too on the nose

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.
