We are a multi-generational family of 13 who are all flying into Copenhagen at various times & locations from the US (NYC, DC, Chicago) We are starting a Baltic cruise out of Copenhagen in July 2020. We will be arriving around 1 pm on Friday & leave for our cruise the following day on Sat. We also arrive back in Copenhagen & plan to do an all day tour on our final day but we would love to get some recommendations on what to do in Copenhagen before our cruise when we first arrive into the city.
I will be there with my husband & our 2 girls age 7 & 9, before my parents who are in their early 70's & the rest of my siblings & their respective families arrive in Copenhagen.
Could we get recommendations on where to go during our short stay before our cruise, things that may not be covered during an intensive all day tour & good for kids? Also, if we could get some feedback on whether it would be better to stay at the Copenhagen Plaza Hotel or the Crowne Plaza Copenhagen?
We are open to other hotels but these were the 2 that I narrowed down after doing an initial search. Both have A/C which many hotels did not seem to have & since we will be there in July was a concern. The Crowne Plaza is not central it seems but it is clean & spacious & has shuttles to the cruise port which I am worried we might have trouble with since none of us have been to Copenhagen before. The Copenhagen Plaza was a hotel recommended in Rick Steves Scandinavian cruise book & it seems to be central to sites in Copenhagen but I'm worried that it did not get the best reviews on Trip Advisor & seems a bit run down though it seems to be high in character & charm. We are excited for our trip & thank you for any & all recommendations & tips! Thank you so much!!
