We stayed in this great Airbnb apartment in Amagerbro, just south of Christianshavn. (New to Airbnb? Use this referral code when you sign up and you and I will both get a $25 credit. Yay, savings!) Amagerbro was well-connected to the city by buses and the metro but for a short trip we’d recommend staying a little closer to the city center. Indre By would be a nice spot.
- The inspiration for Disneyland, Tivoli is a charming, smaller, and more accessible theme park. Go at night to see the lights and (sometimes) fireworks.
- Take an hour-long canal tour. Copenhagen is a great city to explore from the water, and if you don’t have a lot of time it’s a good way to cover a lot of territory.
- Visit the Louisiana Museum for its small but impressive art collection and its beautiful sculpture garden, grounds, and coastal views.
- Kompa 9 Café: Breakfast, sandwiches, coffee, and tea with Instagram-worthy décor. Everything we had here was fresh and delicious.
- Foodie: Get the impressively large and tasty lamb sandwich.
- Mikkeller Bar: Known internationally, the Mikkeller brewery is based in Copenhagen. They have a large range of beers on taps – a style to suit everyone!
