I wish to take the train from copenhagen to aero
We wanna visit Roermond Designer Outlet and then we will continue to Brussel. Is it possible by train? We are staying in Amsterdam. How can we trip from Amsterdam to Roermond after that Brussel at the same day ? If someone can help us, we will be glad because we have no idea about it:)
My husband and I are travelling to Denmark from Amsterdam by train in November. At this stage we are thinking about getting off the train at Odense, hiring a car and just driving stopping as we feel for 5 days. Possibly down to Langeland then Jutland finishing in Aarhus before we have 4 days in Copenhagen. Can anyone recommend anywhere in particular to visit or stay?
We're a small group of girls (18-19 years old) who are planing a road trip this summer (end of July to the middle of August). We are driving from Norway to either Sweden then Denmark, or just Denmark. We are interested in festivals, amusement parks, beautiful scenic sites/roads, surfing and fun stuff to do. Also tips on places to stay/camp/hostels are much appreciated. Also average costs for campsites, ferries, etc.
We will travel to Denmark for the first time this summer for 18 days, and traveling by car. The planned itinerary is listed below. I’d like to finalize it asap.
I don’t expect we will do much if any hiking other than some on flat terrain; just not packed for hiking and knees are ??.
To cut down on cost, we will stay in hostels, camp ground cabins, or reasonably priced B&B’s. I expect we will make most all of our reservations prior to leaving. Not the way I prefer to travel, but given the cost of Norway, a way to keep costs down.
I’m interested in any feedback, e.g.
• Is the number of days listed for each part of the trip reasonable?
• Any suggestions for either increasing or decreasing the days in a given area based on things to see or do?
• Any suggestions for additions or deletions for the overall route?
• Any suggestions on specific places to stay for each of our daily end destinations
• Any other comments?

I will be staying in Copenhagen this summer for a pre-cruise stay and getting ready to book a hotel. I was leaning towards the Radisson Blu Royal Hotel, in Copenhagen. I know that it is a little on the expensive side, but since i will only be staying one night i am not concerned. I am just looking for a hotel that is pretty centrally located with good accommodations and friendly staff. Has anyone stayed in this hotel that can give me some insight to this hotel? Thanks.
My husband and I are really looking forward to our first trip to Copenhagen in a few weeks time. We arrive on a Wednesday evening and return on Saturday afternoon. After reading several forums, one of things we would like to fit into our itinerary is a guided tour that relates to the tv series The Killing. The Visit Copenhagen website links to Peter and Pings website where they say they do a tour each Saturday at 4pm. This won't work for us as we will be on our way to the airport. I have emailed them twice to see if they do this tour on other days when we are there - unfortunately I haven't had a reply. Can anyone tell me if there are any other guided tours (1-2 hours as we have so much to do) that will fit in with our visit? Any help with this will be much appreciated.
I'm going to Copenhagen at the end of September exactly during the blues festival and traveling from far away. Wondering if hotel prices will start getting higher as the festival gets closer for the time period of September 26th-Oct 1st? Trying to gauge when I should book the hotel as my preference budget wise would have been 3 months before but I'm wondering if that's too late. Cheers! Travel_chach

What do folks wear in Copenhagen? Every city has a different "style" - like the different between New York City and Atlanta. What is the style like in Copenhagen? Are jeans okay for most days/nights, or do you need to "dress up" for evenings and nights out? Thanks!
Is parking free for motorbikes and if not approx charges please for secure thanks ?
Hi, I'm engaged to a German living in Denmark and due to our circumstances we will marry towards the end of 2014. In the meantime I want to visit him a few times. It says the current rule for Australians going to Denmark is the following: Generally, Australian tourists planning to spend less than a total of 90 days within a 180 day period in the 'Schengen area' do not require visas for countries which are parties to the Schengen Convention. How does that work out, if I want to visit a few weeks in April, a few weeks in June/July and then from the end of November till February. The difference between the first and the third visit is less than 180 days, but not between the second and the third. Now here's the question. The first few weeks of my third visit will be within the 180 day period from my last visit. After that, do I have to leave the country again or does simply a new 180 day period start while I'm there so that I can stay for a full 90 days in a row? I'd also like to visit Germany with him during the last trip. Would that make things any more difficult? Your help is much appreciated, rice-bubble
We are traveling to Copenhagen in September. I've read about the "must see" places to see. My question is about visiting that time of year. How's the weather? Any pointers on places to stay?
I will be heading on a Scandinavian cruise in late July/early August and wanted some advice on what to wear/pack. I was thinking that the weather would be around the low 70's but not sure. We will be staring in Copenhagen, then visiting olso, Stockholm, Helsinki, Estonia, berlin, and St. Petersburg. Can anyone give me some advice on what to pack for the weather at these places for this time of year? Pants, shorts, jackets,umbrealls,etc? Thanks.
Hi there, I'm reaching out to VT'ers because in the past you've been so helpful with my itinerary. Hopefully I'll have the same luck this time. We're traveling for 10 days visiting Norway, Sweden, and Denmark. A little info that might help, We're flying between cities to save time, we're a young couple, and we don't spend much time in museums unless it's an absolutely must see. With that being said, here's our rough intinerary: Day 1: Arrive and begin Sightseeing in Copenhagen Day 2: Sightseeing in Copenhagen Day 3:Sightseeing in Copenhagen Day 4: Depart Copenhagen in the morning for Oslo by plane - Sightseeing in Oslo Day 5: Leave for Norway in a Nutshell Tour - overnight somewhere on this trip Day 6: Depart Bergen by plane to Stockholm Day 7:Sightseeing in Stockholm Day 8:perhaps Day trip to Helsinki by boat Day 9: Sightseeing in Stockholm Day 10: Depart Stockholm for Copenhagen and overnight there Day 11: Return to U.S. Please, any advice will be well recieved. Thanks in advance.
My dad and i will be going on a scandinavian cruise this summer and on of our stops is Aarhus, Denmark. This is the only port that i am not too familiar with. Does anyone have any suggestions on what to do? Here are some of the choices that we have. • Den Gamle By Museum • Clausholm Castle • Vintage Train • Randers Rain Forest Raasted Church • Aarhus Cathedral • Fyrkat Viking Fortress • Ebeltoft
My dad and I will be going on a scandinavian cruise this summer and will be starting in copenhagen. We are getting there a day early to explore the city. I have a list of sites to see for the whole say and and wondering if i can see all these in a day. Keep in mind we dont need many hours at each place. Also we had planned on seeing all these sites by walking only. So that way wee could see all the city in between the sites. Would this be doable? Tivoli Vor frelsers Kirke(church of our savior) The black Diamond(royal library) Opera house The Little Mermaid The Round Tower tycho brahe planetarium Nyhavn Also we will be staying at the Raddison Royal Blu, which is right by tivoli and the planitarium so those should be easy to visit.
We are going to Copenhagen next weekend where we will meet up with another couple that has been there before so I am hoping that they will be able to guide us during our 2 days there. We have a limited amount of time though and would like to visit a christmas market or two and have some nice meals and visit some cosy pubs both for lunch and dinner. I heard that the christmas market at the tivoli is worth visiting, is there any other nice ones? Any reccommendations for places to eat and drink (not too fancy) would be nice too. We will be staying in a hotel close to the main railwaystation so at least for dinner it would be nice if it is not too far away from there. Is there anything else that I should not miss?
I shall pass through CPH on my way to Amsterdam, between 0730 and 1500. Thought I'd get out into the city to look around but with so many tips given here in VT, it's hard to tell which ones are not to be missed on a short time frame. So please help me out here, which ones I could skip and which ones I shouldn't miss. Thanks, guys!
Hi, can anybody help me! I'm looking for the quickest and cheapest way to get from Billund airport to Odense and back. The websites I look at are fine until it comes to book and then it reverts back to Danish!! Help please, how long does the journey take? Thanks in advance - Andy
I'm planning to go there for new years eve celebrations, is there a good atmosphere, places open late, etc etc? want to go there for the party!!
Hi, We are hoping to travel to Copenhagen 19th Dec-23rd Dec as a family of 3 (my husband, 3year old little boy and me) Just wondered if anyone had any hints and tips or recommendations? I'm trying to avoid paying the hiked up tourist prices. For accomodation are the hostels a good option for families? (we don't want anywhere too noisy or hectic!). Thank you for any ideas you may have :0)
