Layover: What to see during your layover in Copenhagen

Copenhagen is hands-down one of my favorite cities ever. Even though I’ve only been there during a couple layovers, it’s one of the top cities on my list to spend more time exploring in. There’s so many adorable stores and buildings, people are friendly, it’s super walk-able and just all-around an amazing city.

The airport has an inexpensive train and metro that goes downtown from terminal 3 every 4-6 minutes and it takes less than 15 minutes to get downtown, so visiting Copenhagen during a layover that’s over 5 hours is a MUST. (During the night, the metro still runs every 15-20 mins.) I suggest using the metro; all the metros go the same place (M2 to Vanlose Station) so you don’t need to worry about which one to take. You’ll take the metro all the way to the Norreport station. 24 hour passes are only 80DKK (around $12) and they allow you to travel by metro, bus or train in the main area (zones 1-4). Buying them in advance is really easy through their website.
Here’s a cute illustrated map of Copenhagen to provide some perspective:

Here are some pictures from our stopover on our way back from Switzerland this past December:
