    The preferred method of transportation

    seems to be the bicycle. Especially in warm weather. I've never seen so many bicycles in one place. Amazing! If only we would do the same in the U.S. But we are too dependent on our cars, it's a shame plus not good for the environment either.

    a great way to burn calories

  • Bikes-at any time of year

    by Annebl Written Dec 1, 2003

    4 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This tip could easily be under the warning/danger category, as the Danish style of biking can be dangerous if you're not used to it. Danes bike everywhere; its practical, cheap, good exercise, environmentally friendly, and saves you time trying to find parking spots. But a good tip if you're going to rent a car in Copenhagen: bikers are everywhere, and they always have all the legal rights on their side in traffic. Another funny thing about Danish traffic is that once the first snowfall comes (and there are at least a couple of snowfalls every year) the whole country shuts down...at least the major cities. Cars drive in 10 km an hour, trains and buses are infinitely delayed, but...people still bike!

    The best way to go around is on foot or bicycle of course, even in wintertine!

    Tivoli is closed during winter but had to take a picture of that famous portail :-)

    SAS airlines, the best airline in the world.
    by foot or on bicycle. Bicycles are evrywhere and unlike England they have proper cycle lanes and respect from drivers, In England cycling is seen as an inferior form of transport. Copenhagen is the no 1 city for cycling. Yes even better than Amsterdam and thats saying something.

    The Danes are environmentalists so you'll see many on bikes. I notice the streets in Copenhagen are layered in three parts: main strip for the cars, middle level for the bikers and the rest is the pedestrian sidewalk. Makes it easy if you know which type of transport you're taking: car, bike or foot!

    When it comes to cycling, Copenhagen reminds a lot of Amsterdam. So many people using bicycles to get around town. It seems that cold and rainy weather does not bother too much, and very safe.

    It's a good way to explore the city. Do as the locals do and use a bike. Bike paths are everywhere and you don't have to walk................
