Perhaps, one of the most relaxing things you can do is watch fish swim. We travelled on the S train, but buses can get you there, using our combined travel/entrance card, saves time and money. We stopped off at the Funkis café on the corner...More

This aquarium is lacking in terms of varieties of species and size if comparing to US aquariums. We had the Copenhagen card so entry fees come with it; otherwise, you may find it a bit expensive for what you're getting (USD 26 for adult and...More

In the eastern part of this neighbourhood, visitors
will discover Amager Strandpark, a beach area which
has become increasingly popular. It’s only a 30 minute
bicycle ride or a 10 minute Metro trip away from the
city center. Only a few hundred yards inland, some of
the most creative musicians, artists, and writers in
Copenhagen are occupying some of the old storage
houses and production facilities. The western part is

Yes it does. You can also get there by metro for free (if you have a Copenhagen Card, which also gives you free admission to Den Bla Planet) for a bit of travel variety, It's an enjoyable trip.
