Denmark Tourist Traps

  • Little Mermaid

    Copenhagen Tourist Traps

    Take public transport as close as you can. Yes, the statue is small and unremarkable; however, the walk back toward the city is wonderful: the Anglican church, old fort, sailors' housing, etc. Stay just a minute or two, take some pics, and then enjoy the walk back toward the city.

  • Copenhagen Card

    Copenhagen Tourist Traps

    I want to put it down in writing to possibly dispel the negative posts on here that claim the Copenhagen card is a tourist trap. I completely disagree. The other three posting may be out of date (2004~2006) and therefore valid at the time, but as of my visit, I found it an exceptional deal and very well worth the money. The card can be purchased...

  • Tivoli

    Copenhagen Tourist Traps

    Whilst Tivoli gets loads of press it is actually nothing special. If you are one person the price tag of 75DKK,which in real money is about £7.50,is way too much,I saw all I needed to see in a quick 10 minute once over,what a swizz. I think if you have kids you will get some mileage from Tivoli,but the entry fee really stings. DKK 75 adults DKK...

    Copenhagen Tourist Traps

    Nyhavn is on of the famous streets in Copenhagen.In middle centuries it was famous for markets, a lot of boats and ships arrived here to sale something.Now this place is full of small and cozy restaurants.One of the historical facts is that H.Andersen lived here for some time before he became famous .I think it.s obveously, coz this place is really...

  • Shop Opening Times

    Denmark is one of those European coutries where shops close quite early, so you need to have that in mind. Also shops and department stores can be closed during the weekends so check the opening times if you have shopping in your plans. In case of a necesity you can look for night shops (open usually until 10 pm) like Døgn Netto, keep in mind that...

  • Experience from hell - Parking at...

    Ok, I know Legoland is a huge theme park with thousands of people visiting it everyday. But what we experienced trying to find a parking spot can't be properly described by words. Yes, it is well organised because it is Denmark we are talking about, but also there is simply not enough space to park all these cars! It takes ages to get directed to a...

  • safest country in the world

    honastly i do not know of any tourist traps in Denmark. I lived in Denmark for 11 months and never ran into any problems of being treated different for being an american or anything like that. Danes are very nice and friendly after they get to know you and will give you a helping hand whenever it is needed. Danes are very fun and loving, mostly...

  • Danish people like Danish creditcards.

    Be careful when you go shopping, specially in towns (outside of Copenhagen). Most shops don't take international creditcards, which I think is really weird since I was able to use my Visa card in places like Penang in Malaysia. Some restaurants don't take creditcards either (Danish banks issue Danish creditcards called "Dankort"). I don't know why...

  • Electricity bills

    When you rent a house be prepared that after leaving you will have to pay A LOT for electricity and heating (especially when you have floor heating, a sauna or a whirlpool) !!! We almost broke down and cried in the rental office - and searched for our last coins in everyone's pockets to pay the bill!!! Oh... and cleaning the windows is a pain with...

    The tourist buses begin arriving early in the morning with tourists crowding around to take photos of the Little Mermaid. It's very pretty -- as statues go -- but just a teensy bit over-rated. Read the fairy tale instead and buy a postcard!

    The Little Mermaid. Supposed to be the big attraction of Copenhagen, we walked for 2 hours to see the famous statue, what a wasted journey. It is a small, poor quality statue with a backdrop of chemical industry. It is free, but still poor value for money at that price!!!!

    Tivoli Gardens. No doubt one of the first things you will come across in any Copenhagen guide book. Tivoli is fine, the gardens are pretty, the rides are over-priced and would probably satisfy the younger kids but not the teenagers. Spend at couple of hours there anyway but it is not the big deal which it is made out to be. Luckily it is centrally...

    'Loreley'. I guess everybody has heard about it or seen a picture. And like everybody i wanted to go and see it, so i made my friend take me there. Judging from photos i´d seen before i thought it was kind of a recognizable size,... but i would have missed it if my friend wouldn´t have stopped me. It´s just sooooo tiny! Well during summer it could...

    This monument although it's a symbol of Copenhagen looks much better on TV then in real. It's quite small, located far from the center in ugly surroundings - simply just overrated.
