Cheap areas to stay in Copenhagen

You don’t have to splurge to have a memorable holiday in Copenhagen. There are hotels here to suit every budget, and it’s simply a matter of being savvy about the area you stay in. Hip, bohemian Vesterbro is one ideal quarter, boasting good, cheap hotels alongside buzzing bars and independent boutiques where artsy locals hang out. You can also opt for one of the budget-friendly pads in Amager West, a serene district south of the city center. And speaking of the center, you can also find a few cheap places close to the Tivoli Gardens.

Urban House may be cheap, but it’s as hip as hostels come. Located in Vesterbro, it’s the perfect place to crash and mingle – have a craft beer in the courtyard, or grab a bite in the on-site eatery. There’s even a chill-out room for when you’re recuperating after a heavy night. Wakeup Copenhagen Carsten Niebuhrs Gade is a striking hotel right in the city center, with an attractive minimalist aesthetic and perks including air-conditioned guestrooms and free WiFi. Its sister pad, Wakeup Copenhagen Borgergade, also offers free WiFi and is an equally budget-friendly choice.

Where to find cheap food in Copenhagen

Yes, Copenhagen is known for its Michelin-starred restaurants that have the critics raving, but the city is also full of casual eateries where you can grab hearty food without blowing your budget. Vesterbro is a particularly good district for artisan burgers and wood-fired pizzas which don’t cost the earth, while over in Norrebro you can chow down on the best Middle Eastern kebabs and shawarma wraps around. You should also check out the street food stalls on Paper Island, which serve up everything from pulled duck to crispy falafel.

Cheap things to do in Copenhagen

Taking in the history of Copenhagen needn’t cost a penny. Head over to Kastellet, a fortress that is shaped like a huge pentagram, and garlanded with baroque structures such as the Commander’s House, as well as a quaint 19th-century windmill. Afterwards, head south to Amager Beach Park, the ideal destination for a sunny afternoon. Here, you’ll find a picturesque, artificial island, sandy dunes, and a wide promenade to stroll along. Kids will love the dedicated play pools, and adults will enjoy chilling out and indulging in a spot of people watching. A particularly unusual and beguiling attraction is Superkilen Park, which reflects the diversity of Norrebro with its collection of global artefacts, from Russian neon signs to a Japanese octopus sculpture. It’s the perfect place to sit while snacking on street food.

Cheap ways to get around Copenhagen

With its ornate, historical landmarks and natural beauty, Copenhagen is a city that should be seen on foot as much as possible. However, you can also make use of the super-efficient metro system and bus services, and there’s an easy way to get the most bang for your buck. Simply invest in a Copenhagen Card, which will not only give you free access to the trains and buses, but will also grant free admission to major attractions. And instead of paying for a pricey canal tour, just take a fuss-free harbor bus instead.
