Hi! I've posted one other time but now I feel like I have a better handle on our options and am looking for any specific input about an 8-day itinerary in and around Copenhagen for a family of five--our three kids our 13 (boy), 10 (girl), and 7 (girl). We'll be there from May 23 - May 31. We are planning to rent a VRBO to keep costs down, and are trying to decide whether to split our time between Copenhagen and Stockholm, Copenhagen and a quick couple of days for Norway in a Nutshell, or try to squeeze in all three (Copenhagen, Stockholm, Norway in a Nutshell). Had we been thinking at all when we purchased flights, we would have flown into Copenhagen and out of Stockholm, but we blew it on that and changing now would cost more than our original tickets, so we're stuck coming and going from Copenhagen. With that in mind, does anyone have specific recommendations in terms of how many days in each place, whether we'd be better served sticking in and around Copenhagen w/some day trips added in or trying to see more? Our kids are pretty good travelers and we've considered night trains between Stockholm and Copenhagen, etc. so we don't lose so much sightseeing time traveling. In terms of what we like to do, museums, cool cultural and local experiences, outdoor adventures, art (mostly me--mom), history, a bit of everything! Finally, thoughts on renting a car vs. relying entirely on public transit?
Thanks so much in advance! We've been to Europe multiple times but never to Scandinavia and never with the kids!
