Holiday rentals in Copenhagen
Although staying in a rental right at the city centre is the most attractive idea, it is not always the cheapest. The old part of town is well connected to the different boroughs so wherever you stay in the city, you will never be far from it. Vesterbro, a neighborhood located very close to the central train station, is ideal for those who want to make day trips. To immerse yourself completely into the Danish charm, you will find holiday rentals at a good price in Christianshavn, a cosy neighborhood full of canals, with charming colourful houses and a very quiet atmosphere. However, you can find more secluded rentals on the outskirts, in the Gentofte and Charlottenlund areas, surrounded by beautiful landscapes, ideal for those who want to stay in a quieter environment and enjoy a quality rest, away from the hustle and bustle of the city.Rentals in the trendiest Danish area

We all know that beer is the ubiquitous drink throughout the country. The most famous brands are Tuborg and Carlsberg, but we can also find craft beers, known as "microbrews". However, during your stay, do not forget to try the "Ålborg Export" brandy, which is served very chilled. In addition, take a sip of a typical Viking spirit with honey, with a very similar taste to moscato wine, - "Mjød".2. Have a great time at the Tivoli
Spend a fabulous day like locals do at their preferred amusement park in central Copenhagen with a wide array of rides, games, musicals, ballet, and concerts. The Tivoli Gardens is a must for all tourists regarding the age.
