Copenhagen on a budget


Europe‘s third most expensive city, Copenhagen can be a tricky place to get by on a budget but with a bit of planning you can make the most of your wallet. Museums with free admission include the National Museum, the Museum of the Danish Resistance and the Statens Museum for Kunst (National Gallery), while many others offer free entry one day per week. Another great free activity in summer is swimming in Copenhagen harbours’ outdoor pool on Islands Brygge, southwest across the canal from Indre By. You should also consider buying a CPHCARD. As for getting around, you can walk to most places, use the free city bikes or take the harbour bus-boats. The city has plenty of free music on offer, including concerts at Tivoli almost weekly during summer. As for accommodation, having your own bed linen and HI card saves you up to 85kr nightly.
