Copenhagen is a must-see, especially if it is your first family time in Denmark. Even if the exploring the city could be an expensive journey, there are some tricks to don’t spend an absurd amount of money during your stay. First of all, book a Tapsy tour of the city with me! It’s cheap and gives children a great overview of the city. As I said before, many of the main attractions are for free, and you can easily move using bikes or scooters instead of the public transportation. Anyway, getting the Copenhagen Card is a good way to get scouts and free entries. It can cover the whole family.
