Copenhagen on a budget

If you want to squeeze as much as possible out of your visit to Copenhagen, we have selected some great affordable places and free attractions. For instance, you can hop on a sightseeing boat and experience the beauty of the city and most of the top sights from the water.

If the weather allows it, a picnic is a good way to save money on dining. Pick something up from the supermarkets and find a nice place in one of Copenhagen’s many gardens and parks, for example King’s Garden or Frederiksberg Gardens. You can also check out our guide to value for money restaurants or if you are into a big juicy burger, you can check out our guide to the best burgers in Copenhagen.

Remember the Copenhagen Card that gives you free admission to more than 70 museums and attractions, free public transport by bus, train and Metro and discounts on restaurants, cafés and sightseeing activites. You can also bring along two children under 10 for free.
