• How to enjoy your first trip to Copenhagen

    2013-10-09

    Visiting a city for the first time can be overwhelming. With so much to see and do in a relatively short amount of time, you may feel pressured to cram your schedule with visits to tons of attractions and tourists traps. That is certainly true for travelers who head to Copenhagen, Denmark, as the city is home to a number of lesser-known landmarks and hidden gems that are definitely worth a visit.

    Don't let that deter you from setting out in this metropolis, however, as you can confidently experience some of the best parts of the area without stress simply by focusing on a few travel strategies. Here are some tips to keep in mind as you explore Copenhagen for the first time:

    Eat the food
    If there is one thing that the Danish people take seriously, it is their food, and that is evident when you look at the restaurants scattered throughout Copenhagen. Leading the pack is Noma, an eatery specializing in new Nordic cuisine that has been selected as the World's Best Restaurant three times. There are more than a dozen other Michelin-starred establishments offering culinary creations in a variety of styles, providing travelers with plenty of options when it comes to mealtimes. Another benefit of the food is that the bulk of the ingredients are locally grown and organic, ensuring freshness in every bite.

    Don't skip dessert
    You may be tempted to fill up on the main course as you head out to Copenhagen's most popular restaurants, but you would be remiss if you missed the traditional desserts served up in this city. Pastry is king in Copenhagen, with wienerbrød, also known as a Danish, among the most popular. Bakeries open early to provide pastries and coffee to locals and travelers alike, and there is no better way to start a day of exploration than at one of these cozy establishments.

    It's great for winter
    Many travelers try to plan Europe travel trips during the summer to take advantage of warmer weather. However, those who push treks to Copenhagen back to winter can experience a whole different side to the city - while also saving themselves some money. Not only can you capitalize on savings by traveling during off-peak times of the year, but you can also experience the festivities surrounding the holidays and New Year's. Christmas markets begin sprouting up in November, and you'll undoubtedly be delighted by the elegant decorations, authentic crafts for sale and gorgeous winter landscape that surrounds you.
