Central station: Copenhagen
  1. There are  good hotels and hostels near Central train station. If you are backpacking and travelling by bus like Flix bus, those bus also stop close to the Central station. This area also has many cheap food joints. Two major tourist attraction Tivoli and Tycho Brahe planetarium are very close the central station. We stayed in Grand hotel, Vesterbrogade 9, 1620 København. It is a 3 star hotel with clean room,  free wifi and attached shower and toilet. Breakfast available for ~10€.

3. Copenhagen is an expensive city, so restaurants are pretty expensive too. For cheaper option, Burger king / MacD are good for grabbing a small meal. We prefer Asian/ Indian food, there are many such small restaurants which offer sufficient meals in a decent price for sitting and take away. We tried local food in Nyhavn which is extremely pricy but you will leave with half empty stomach.

4. According to our opinion Copenhagen card is not that useful a day. Best way of ‘getting there’ is by walking or renting a bike. They say ‘in Copenhagen we bike whether there is sun, rain or snow.’   It will save your time as well, while walking would allow you to savour the architecture, colours, old buildings, monuments and street arts ..
