Budgeting Plan

Transportation – Denmark has a transportation system that features metro lines, extensive bus routes, and an interactive train network. You can use a taxi easily but it comes at a cost.

Road conditions are very good. Denmark is extremely bicycle-friendly and there are bicycle lanes located throughout the country, usually paralleling vehicular lanes. So, cycling is one of the best ways to explore Denmark especially the capital Copenhagen.

If you visit Copenhagen, then your transport ticket depends on how many zones you are traveling through. Copenhagen is also a compact city and you can visit most of the city’s attractions on foot.

Denmark is also included in the InterRail Global Pass that allows access to train routes in 33 European countries, making a multi-stop Scandinavian trip easy

  • One can save money on attractions and transportation with various types of city cards. You can use a Copenhagen Card, a couple of City Passes, or a complete travel Pass for your use.

Other sites to plan and choose your accommodation might be Air BnB, Agoda, or Hostelworld. However, when you’re looking for a hostel, do your research, read reviews to get a feel for the place. and book somewhere that suits you

Food and local Dishes – Traditional Danish food is more or less all about meat, So find a veg option is a complicated task. Apart from a good Indian restaurant, I tried the few traditional Danish dishes which were.
