    • 5 days in Denmark

      Copenhagen Jun 29, 2016 at 1:57 PM

      I wrote it on the Denmark forum but no one answered so I hope you can help me here, it's important because I want to book my flights but I need advice to know the best route....

      I was in lovely Copenhagen, Elsinor, Hillerod, Roskilde, Brede and the town of Louisiana museum the last time I travelled to Denmark.
      This Time I have the possibillty to book a flight to Billund in early september for a full 5 days (the flight back is on the sixth day). My question - How can I plan this trip so I can see the most interesting/beautiful places?
      I'm 30, but I think the lego land is an experience I should see... so should I stay also for 1 night in billund? Where should I go next? Should I go to Fyn to stay 1 night in odense? should I go to Aarhus for 1 night too? Mostly I like to explore outdoor activities such as beautiful nature and enjoy the beautiful streets vibes better than cathedrals and museums....
      It's also important to add that I plan to do everything by trains so I hope it won't be expensive.. is there a card I can buy like the copenhagen card I bought on my last trip?
      I can take the flight back from Billund or from Copenhagen but I want to plan it first so I know what's the better option.... Thanks in advance for all the help!! :)

    • Joining UK tour Copenhagen, on to Norway to Stockholm for return flights

      Denmark Jul 5, 2016 at 9:52 AM

      I normally travel solo, but because I have not been to any of cities and was told its expensive, decided to book a land package which will cover route from Copenhagen, returning via Stockholm where I will get flight to Dublin for overnight to return to JFK.

      I tour details that cover mostly hotels with breakfast daily, one dinner is included but will need to prepare to handle the expenses as I travel onward. Understand some places are not in Eurozone and need help trying to budget using currencies other than Sterling and Euros. I am experienced senior traveler and enjoy light meals.
      I normally enjoy a good breakfast, light lunch (yogurt, fruits, sandwich or soups) and then look forward to full dinner each evening. I live in NY and not sure where I can purchase foreign currencies. Does anyone know what kind of transportation is available from Copenhagen airport in case my flight arrives late and might miss tour pick up bus? How far is airport from city and is there a metro or coach from airport to reach city or surroundings?

      Looking forward to help if someone is accustomed to this route. Thank you.

      Easiest way from Copenhagen to Helsingor

      Copenhagen Jun 28, 2016 at 4:52 AM

      I need to make a day trip for casual business and was able to find a good fare from Berlin to Copenhagen. However, when I arrive I need to go to Helsingor for an appointment. Using online journey planners, I wasn't sure about what choices there were. There are options for Helsingor St., which seems to be in Copenhagen, and Helsingor the town. Just trying to find a reasonably easy way from arrival at Copenhagen bus station to Helsingor in the afternoon to evening time. Thanks for any help!

      Thoughts on Odense? One-night stopover

      by Kathrin_E Online Now Mar 1, 2016 at 2:33 AM

      In late May I'll be attending a conference in Copenhagen. As I haven't been to Denmark since I was a teen, I'm considering a stopover on the way for a glimpse at another Danish city.

      Travel is by train and there are two potential routes between Hamburg and Copenhagen. On the way TO Copenhagen I will be taking the direct ICE via the Puttgarden-Rødby ferry (this sounds exciting), after a two-day stay in Hamburg - this has already been booked and settled.

      For the way BACK I am considering the other route via Fyn and Fredericia and then south on the mainland. The idea is hopping over from Copenhagen in the morning, booking a hotel in "stopover city" for one night, some sightseeing in the afternoon and next morning, and then continuing the long ride home around noon the next day.

      Cities along the route are Odense, Fredericia and Kolding, so these are the options in question. Among these, Odense looks most appealing to me at first sight - I am interested in historical architecture, cities/towns, churches, castles/palaces, maybe a museum (not at all into nightlife).
      What do you think?

      Odense before Christmas market

      by ElenaKKKK Online Now Jun 21, 2014 at 5:06 AM

      Is it worth to stay couple of nights in Odense a week before the opening of Christmas market? or during this very time the town, especially the old centre, will be stuffed by trucks, boxes and constructions for CM preparations? I had such experience before, and it made walking and wandering around a city not as pleasant as it could be..(just have to tell in advance, parking problems are not a point: I'll travel by public transport)

    • Trying to plan a trip to Odense...need LOTS of help!

      by eneilson Online Now Sep 27, 2010 at 8:27 AM

      Hi all,

      New here, and frankly quite new to travel in general. I've never left the states, and after getting out of a long term relationship, I think it's time I do. My great grandfather came to America from Odense; I want to find out who I am, and where I'm from.

      Being new to international travel, I don't know where to start when planning this trip. Here is what I know...

      * I'd like the trip to last for a total of two weeks.
      * I'd like to spend the majority of time in Odense, but perhaps take some time to check out other interesting nearby areas.

      Money is a big concern, and I want to be able to do this as inexpensively as possible,but without sacrificing my own comfort. Thus, I need suggestions on -

      * Travel
      * Lodging
      * Food (would like to splurge a bit on this...)

      With that said, what should I know about Odense/Denmark/traveling abroad in general that I probably don't at the moment? I plan on visiting at the beginning of December; is this a good/bad time of the year to visit?

      Any and all help is MUCH appreciated!

      I was recommended this city as a smaller, kinder, more hospitable alternative from Copenhagen and was curious when the best time to visit might be to enjoy the nightlife and meet the locals?

      I guess when the university starts up (September?) and on the weekend?

      Hi all,
      Though this isn't the most active forum, I was hoping to get some help. I am moving to Odense in August and have 2 questions:
      1) Where can I find out about a realistic range of prices for an apartment? My wife and I want something with at least a living room, bedroom and office that is nice... and lots of windows! :) Is there a newspaper I can look at or can someone just give me a rough estimate of prices?
      2) We are also going to buy a car. My wife is German and I am wondering if it is cheaper to buy in Germany than Denmark?.... this may be a tough question to answer but any help would be great.

      okay, if it turns out that I get some responses, I am sure I'll have plenty more questions in the next couple weeks...

      thanks!!!

      London to Odense Flights

      by MikeStarr5 Online Now Sep 10, 2004 at 2:33 PM

      I have not been to Odense before but would like to go for a short trip, maybe 2 or 3 days, just to get a flavour of the place and meet up with some friends. Would anybody know if it is possible to fly direct to Odense Airport from London at the start of October. I am looking at cheap RyanAir / EasyJet type flights not business class. If I can't fly cheaply direct, which Danish airport would be the easiest and quickest to go to, assuming that I am going to take the train the rest of the way to Odense. I am wondering also about the feasibility of going to Copenhagen with EasyJet and then catching a very short local flight with someone like Mærsk. Any suggestions ?
