I have just fixed a spur of the moment trip for the weekend.

Taking the overnight ferry from Gothenburg to Kiel on Friday evening, then driving back via the booze shop at Puttgarden and then on to Copenhagen stopping the night in a hotel near Tivoli. leaving for home Sunday afternoon.

Anybody got any suggestions of things to do and see and places to eat a good meal on Saturday evening.

It is over 20 years since I last stayed a night in CPH so my knowledge is a bit rusty and any suggestions will be gratefully received

There is a chili shop in the city that sells loads of spicy chili based sauces etc.

Babylou tattoo is an amazing tattoo artist (Louise Rimpler) if you or the misses want to get some work done wink.gif

KFC - again another place Sweden doesn't have.

You can spend more than a week in Copenhagen to visit all castles,museum,...But its depends on your interest and place.many asian restaurents if you want spicy food.
www.bindia2.dk ,www.indiantaj.dk ,www.indus.dk ,www.restaurantkardemomme.dk ,www.whitepalace.dk
Few places to visit:
1.Town Hall Square : Copenhagen City Hall is Located on Radhuspladsen in central copenhagen,This is the good place to start your day in Copenhagen.
2.Strøget, also known as Walking street.Its famous pedestrian street.Also this is the best place to do your shoppings in Copenhagen.
3.Tivoli : Tivoli Gardens is a famous amusement park and pleasure garden, and one of the oldest garden in Europe.
4. The Little Mermaid,Canal and Harbour tours,strip clubs,casino,...
btw,liquor is cheaper so help yourself with lot of stock for winter.
The S trains(not metro) are free every first sunday of each month,so you can have a free tour if you stay on sunday.

then driving back via the booze shop at Puttgarden

Compare prices online, you generally get better value at Calles in Burg (a few km's before Puttgarden just off the main road) than at the Border Shop in Puttgarden. Fleggaard in Burg is also worth a look as are a number of smaller bottle shops around Burg. Aldi, Lidl and Edeka are all in Burg also and have cheap wines and Sekt if you are not worried about brand names. If you are travelling at peak times take the back road from Burg to Puttgarden and you come out at the junction for the Border Shop. Found this out too late, got caught in a 4 kms tailback into Puttgarden last Saturday afternoon. angry.gif

Don't go out of your way to see the little mermaid. If you chance upon it, fine, but I wouldn't make any special effort. The statue is quite small and faces land, so if you see her from a boat tour, you'll only see her back.

Thanks for all the tips

Byke

As I have plenty of hot sauces, I'll skip the Black Mamba and the Missus has declined a tattoo. However her eyes light up at the thought of KFC so that seems to be Sunday lunch sorted biggrin.gif

We are Indian food addicts and even had an Indian when we where in Paris last March. The Taj on your list seems good and is only a 5 min walk from our hotel so that is Saturday dinner sorted.

We will be there on Sunday. What is the S train and where does it go?

We will go to Tivoli on Saturday

Calles is where I usually shop and I have downloaded their August specials and made a list of what I want. I shall also check out Fleggards prices. Aldi usually has some good prices for German wines.

I was planning to take the Citroen C4, but maybe I need the boot space of the 9-5 tongue.gif

The tip on the back route into Puttgarden is great thanks. Some years ago I was stuck for 8 hours queuing for the boat on the last Saturday in July when all the Swedes head home. Instead of being in Sweden Saturday night, we ended up sleeping in the car outside Rodby as all the hotels where full.

@ Rick
Thats good choice.Ive been there and food was lovely.
unlike stockholm,copenhagen is divided into zones for traveling.
Just watch out for the big S symbol on the train stations.Metro runs mostly underground and S train above ground.You can make out the difference in the trains.
S train
check the map for the areas it covers.
The stops near to the city Central are norreport,vesterport and kopenhavn H.
Enjooy ur trip smile.gif .

Go to Christiania!!! Buy a sack, roll a spliff, and enjoy the view. Perhaps a Vanilla Chai Latte afterwards from the coffee shop? They make a very good one!

No fear of getting mugged. I am way past the time of life when I would frequent such places.

40 years ago it would have been a bit different- but then I was not only young but single
