Copenhagen in a matter of hours



Description:

Copenhagen might make the perfect destination for a city break, but what if you had to squeeze the entire experience into a six-hour stopover between flights, or opted to spend a similar amount of time stretching your legs during a trans-European train journey? Alternatively, it could be you've find yourself with a day in the city as part of a cruise package - how can you find enough to do to fill six hours, without straying too far from your transport hub?
With these three hubs located in quite seperate areas of the city, we've found a number of suggestions for each one - all within a 10-minute walk or Metro journey from the hub you need to return to.

Day 1 - Copenhagen, København


STOPOVER BETWEEN FLIGHTS
Take the Metro seven stops to Christianshavns Torv for a tour of the picturesque Christianshavn neighborhood, to enjoy its canals and old painted houses that cluster around the water. Even with the extra expenses, enjoying a meal in a local cafe like Luna’s Diner will no doubt cost less than the prices inside Copenhagen’s Airport, and the neighborhood atmosphere and the view is completely free. If you have time, check out the twisting spire (and view from its top) of Vor Frelsers Kirke (Church of Our Saviour) and the maritime exhibits of Orlogsmuseet, the Danish Naval Museum

If you’re in the city early, Cafe Obelix on Vesterbro Torv is open from 08.30am; otherwise Floras Cafe is a little closer, at no.16, and open from 10am. After you’ve filled up, check out Copenhagen through the ages at Københavns Bymuseum (the City Museum) or take a walk around the southern-most of the city’s Lakes – one of Copenhagen’s many open spaces and popular with joggers and families alike.
