Hi! I recently went to Amsterdam and live in Copenhagen. It is far easier to fly than to take the train or drive. Flights within Europe are cheap and easy. IMHO, Copenhagen doesn't warrant more than a day or two unless you have lots of time on your hands. If you like castles, head to Hillerod and see Frederiksborg Slot.....an amazing sight and not nearly as well known or visited as it should be. If you like church's and vikings, head to Roskilde. The cathedral there is amazing....it's where most of the royals are buried and their tombs are jaw dropping. The Viking Ship Museum near here is also good. Have Fun!
Thanks Misha1, for the helpful info. It doesn't look like I will get there this summer, but next summer I will be trying to go during the Jazz Festival. I hope you liked Amsterdam. We have been twice and want to go again so that's why I am trying to link the trips. Thanks again.
We stayed at the Copenhagen Marriott a few years ago, and had a fabulous time. It was our first use of points, and we were not sure what to expect. Well, we were treated llike honored guests, given early check in, and a room facing the canal. Tivoli Gardens was within walking distance. The hotel had a modestly priced tour that took us all around the city, then brought us dock-side for our Baltic cruise. Would definitely recommend!
