Things to do
The Copenhagen card for 24, 48 or 72 hours provides free admissions to more than 60 Museums and sights and free travel by bus or train throughout the greater Copenhagen area. The Tivoli gardens are a must, although usually closed in the winter. In summer take a trip to the fishing village of Draggor, 45 mins by bus from central Copenhagen.

Also when the weather is favourable, take a canal ride from the centre of town.  This tour takes about an hour and is very good value.

There is a bicycle rental system where you insert coins like a supermarket trolly - and your coin is returned when you return the bike.  As the system is very popular, the earlier you avail yourself of this facility the better.
