Lodging: Hotels in Copenhagen can be on the pricey side, but my favorite is Cab-Inn City. It's a 10-minute walk from the central train station (taxi: approx. 50DKK). The hotel is clean, comfortable and secure (BTW: The main police administration building is across the street.) A comprehensive breakfast buffet is included in the room price. The rooms are similar to double cabins aboard Scandinavian ferries. All have private bathrooms. Check out the photos on or

Cab-Inn city is within easy (and scenic) walking distance of the City Hall (Radhus) plaza, the main shopping street, the main parliament building (Borgen = the castle; Used in the BBC series.), Church of Our Savior (climb the steeple for a commanding view of Copenhagen), and the old city walls (the citadel). At the end of the main shopping street is a plaza where there is a Christmas Market and the embarkation docks for harbor and canal tours. [BTW: Here you'll also find yourself at the front of the parliament building and can follow the esplanade along main canal back to Cab-Inn City if you want.]

If you take a harbor/canal tour, there is another Christmas Market in the Nyhavn (New Port) area, and these trips are hop on/hop off.
