There´s a lot to choose from when you are hungry in Copenhagen, here are a few that we keep going back to:
For traditonal Danish style smørrebrød get a cab to NYHAVN and ask for the best danish lunch. There are a dozen of oldschool lunch restuarants set on a 200 year old canal in the middle of the city. They all serve the traditonal ryebread open sandwiches with strong beer and snaps to go with it.

Things you don´t want to miss when you are here,
Christiania- Big hippie community, not what it once was, as the government are trying to make the hippies normal but still a very interesting place to visit.
There´s a good music scene there and if the coppers have their day off,it´s also a good place to buy your weed..
Modern Art Museum- Get cracking with some wicked art installations or go there to have a cup of coffe and just pretend you´re being cultural. The arcitecture on its own is well worth the trip.
The roundtower- If you want to get a good view of our beautiful city, the only way is up. Oh and the land you see on the other side of the water is Sweden..
The canalboat tours- A supersweet way to see Copenhagen from the ocean. There are a few cool spots where you can hop off to sunbath and have a drink and then catch the next boat. Go to Nyhavn buy some beers and hop on.
You´ll be best off to go to a proper bank rather than an exchange bureau.
If you´ve got a Visa just go to a hole in the wall and cash out your kroners.
You can pay with a Visa in most shops and bars and you can always ask for some cash back, it´s free of charge.
When you grab a cab you don´t need to tip as it´s always included but if you feel that the drive was extra smooth then it´s up to you how much. In restaurants it´s always good to leave a little tip depending on where you go and how good the service is, everything from 10 dkr is fine.
All around Copenhagen you´ll be able to find citybikes.
Theese bikes are not the best of bikes but they will take you around the city and it´s free of charge. All you´ve got to do is put a 20dkr coin in and when you´ve had enough, you take it back where you got it and get your 20dkr back. Easy peasy.
You can also rent proper bikes at:
