Copenhagen, home of Hans Christian Andersen and the Little Mermaid, is the unassuming capital city of Denmark with plenty of hidden treasures and historic architecture.
After exploring Sweden, I continued my Scandinavian adventure by taking the train from Malmö to Copenhagen (105 SEK, or $12.50). The ride takes you over Øresund Bridge in about 35 minutes and straight into Copenhagen’s Central Station (Københavns H). Both countries are in the Schengen Area and part of the EU so you won’t need to show your passport.
I had only two days to spend in Copenhagen so I wanted to make the best of it, starting with choosing a convenient place to stay. I booked a room at WakeUp Copenhagen which was about a 10 minute walk from the central station.
The lobby was really quite airy and modern, with lots of space to people to congregate and plan their day’s outing.
