    Luggage and bags: Get a sound backpack with double zips so that you can have the option to lock it.

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Pack an extra pair of laces. You'll never know when those laces are gonna break when you're walking miles in them!

    Photo Equipment: Get a lightweight, high meg digital camera with lots of 128mb flashcard/memory sticks.
    There's really no point lugging a big SLR when you are backpacking.

    Camping/Beach/Outdoor Gear: bring a can/bottle opener. You'll need it if you're buying canned food/ bottled beer for your meals.

    Miscellaneous: Make sure you buy your Scanrail tickets before leaving for Scandinavia coz those tickets really cost over here! I was really happy to find out that most of trainrides were covered by the ticket, I only paid extra when I requested for sleepers.

    Luggage and bags: “Illum” is the name of the biggest departement store in Østergade. It is one of the most exclusive places to go shopping in all Copenhagen. At the time I was there, some floors were being redone. I especially liked the top floor with its open glass windows giving you a very good view over the roofs of the city. There are nice cafés and restaurants up there too! Mon-Thu: 10:00-19:00,
    Fri: 10:00-20:00,
    Sat: 10:00-17:00;

    Luggage and bags: Just take hand luggage. I'm a minimalist and always travel light. If you don't need it, get rid of it.

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Dress like a gentleman or lady. No trainers, they smell.

    Toiletries and Medical Supplies: Bottle Opener and Marmite.

    Photo Equipment: Use disposable camera

    Camping/Beach/Outdoor Gear: Don't ! Use a hotel instead.

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Despite of its northern latitude, the weather in Copenhagen is milder than you would expect. However, you should always bring warm clothes, even in summer. Just in case. But don't forget that Copenhagen is a great place for shopping, so don't bring a full case.

    Miscellaneous: This picture shows the Town Hall Square, the entrance to the Strøget or main commercial area.

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Remember to pack an umbrella or a raincoat; sensible walking shoes and something warm for chilly days. The climate is mild for most of the year, but Copenhagen is at its best in the spring from May to June when temperatures are nice and warm.
