Part-time traveller, Full-Time Brummie

Planning a 2 day Copenhagen itinerary

The quickest way to cause a panic attack in a Brummie Home and Abroad would be to drop me in a foreign city where I have done no research, no forward-planning, or am relying on Mr Fletche to decide on the activities. I break out in a cold sweat just thinking about not knowing how to get from airport to hotel, not knowing how to say at least hello, goodbye and thank you in the local language or not having a clue which attractions are open on a Monday.  So here is my preliminary itinerary for next week’s Copenhagen trip.  As always, this is highly likely to change…we won’t make everywhere on the list, we may spend too much time people-watching or drinking Carlsberg or eating smorgasbord but I like to have a plan to at least start with…

Arrival Day (Sunday)

Nyhavn, Copenhagen, Denmark

Nyhavn. Where the tourists go.


Little Mermaid, Disney

Not this Little Mermaid…

Tuesday (and Mr Fletche’s birthday!)

This is where the plan gets a bit woolly and I will present multiple options to the birthday boy.  These options include:



It’s a hop, skip and a train journey to a whole other country!

Departure Day

Theres just enough time to pick up the obligatory tacky souvenirs (a Little Mermaid fridge magnet is surely a must) before heading back to Københavns Lufthavn and back home to Brum

Are there any must-sees I’m missing out on here?  We’re not really gallery and museum people, and like to mix enjoying local culture with the tourist hotspots.  We know Copenhagen is an  expensive city to eat and drink in but where are the low/medium price but high quality hidden gems?

We promise to tell all about our trip when we return!
