    money issues

    Copenhagen is expensive, at least for some things a tourist do/need: accommodation, eating out, drinks. In addition, if you pay by credit card, in most places they will charge you a percentage (as far I remember about a 3%). Depending on your bank fees, it will be probably better to withdraw cash from a hole on the wall, these are everywhere. Some places accept foreign currencies, esp euro, but usually only at the most touristy places.

    Go for the buffet option

    Meals can really rack up an horendous cost in Copenhagen.

    One solution to this problem is to go for 'buffet' style meals. As I understand it, restaurants save by reducing labour costs, and don't have to charge VAT. Many restaurants take this route with most changing from a daytime to an evening rate at 4pm (at about 40kr more). Meals can vary from around 70kr for a simple pasta daytime buffet up to 140kr or higher for something a bit more interesting. Some of the best we found will go on the restaurant tips.

    Despite this saving, drinks can seriously damage your wallet in Copehagen. Even a simple glass of milk can cost 25krs in some places. Buggers.

    There are lots of great shopping opportunities in Copenhagen, and a trip down Strøget (the walking street) is a must. Try going to some other areas as well though, as Strøget is a big tourist attraction, and many stores, restaurants and cafes here overcharge you.
