Please excuse my tone of voice in the topic of this blog article, but it’s simply something I hear a lot. Do you live in Copenhagen? I really want to go there! Is the weather bad? It’s Scandinavia…ahh and the prices….but I’ve heard it’s a very nice place?
Well, all of the above is correct. Copenhagen for many, is the mysterious city of Hans Christian Andersen, ice-cold Danes, rainy and windy weather, and high prices. But let me tell you, there is way more than this and not necessarily you need to make it an expensive adventure. And one of the most important things is that MyCityHighlight products are available in Copenhagen and they can make your city exploring even more exciting and still keep it on a low budget.
There is something I cannot promise, the weather, so you just need to be lucky. From my own experience, very often weather forecast is way worse than the reality. The best months to visit are definitely summer months and if you are lucky, solid weather can be here from May to August or even September. Do not get too excited, there will be rain in between too, unless we experience some weather abnormalities, quite visible in recent times.
Let’s take a look at what MyCityHighlight has to offer in Copenhagen. First of all, I think about the oldest of our products here, the Audio Guide, a nice and easy way to explore the city on your own, get a nice tour with a lot of information. You can find a bit more about this product here. Personally, I really like it, especially when I travel on my own and I’m just strolling around with my headset on.
The second one is the Detective-Trail, we have three of them in our Copenhagen offer. You will find one in the city center with start at the Copenhagen Central Station. Another one, in my favorite area of the city, Nørrebro! And the third one, the newest one, to be done on a bike with the use of the Harbor Ring route, special bike line designed for everyone who wants to explore Copenhagen’s waterfront. On the last of the mentioned trails, you will get to see the coziest café called Kahyt & Kaffe. It’s located on a boat in Sydhavn and you will pass by it on this Detective Trail, the perfect spot for a break in the coziest surroundings and water. If you decide to explore the Nørrebro one, you will see, among other interesting spots, the grave of the famous Hans Christian Andersen. You might think, nothing special, but the whole surroundings and the cemetery are definitely worth to pay the visit. If you are lucky, you will come on one of those days when kids from local kindergarten or school just stopped by and left a lot of love for H.C. Andersen such as cards, pictures, and toys. How cute! The one in the city center will simply take you on a trail in the city center. No surprise here : ) It’s not ‘off the beaten track’ one, but to visit the ‘must-see’ in Copenhagen, I would suggest it a lot. You’ll make it in a more exciting way than checking into places and moving on into the next tourist attraction. Haven’t heard much of what Detective-Trail is? Check out this article.
Now, let’s move onto our newest product in the capital of Denmark: Crime-Trail! We just launched it and what you have to do on this trail, is to solve a case of a murder near Nørreport Station. You will stay in the city center area, visit various locations, receive hints, some of them would be obvious, some of them would be very confusing, but in the end, it should be clear for you to see who committed the crime. You will choose from 5 suspects. I’ll tell you a bit more about the launch of this product in Denmark in another article. Stay tuned.
What do you say? Doesn’t it sound fun? The weather is great, summer is here, your traveling options might be limited this year, but Copenhagen is ready for everyone who can cross the border or is already in the country. Locals, tourists, 1-day visitors, we have options for you to explore Copenhagen in a fun and sometimes challenging (positively) way. Check out our website and see it all in detail.
