Traveling from Copenhagen-Amsteram-Stockholm

Hello everyone,

I have a few questions about traveling from Denmark to the Netherlands and back to Sweden. We are a group of 5 students, and so far we have booked a flight from Stockholm to Copenhagen. We will be staying in Copenhagen for 5 days, including Christmas. Can you please let us know: 1) The areas of Amager Ost and Rentemestervej- are they safe? And how far they are from city center/main museums?
Also, do you know if there is a cheaper way to get from Copenhagen to Amsterdam? We have been looking at plane/train tickets, and as I understand, the night train from Copenhagen to Amsterdam has been currently shutdown. Do you have any suggestions on how to make that leap from Denmark to Netherlands?
And how to get back from Amsterdam to Stockholm?

If you have any tips on how to save in Northern Europe as students (student discounts) please let us know:)

Thank you very much in advance for any help.

There are the youth tickets for SAS and Norwegian airlines. I think those are the least expensive way to go.

the best way from Copenhagen to Amsterdam is flying. Norwegian usually has some good deals, also for Amsterdam to Stockholm.

Both the area around Rentemestervej and amager Øst are perfectly safe, as is the rest of Copenhagen. Both palces are however a bit far away from the main sights and are a bit dull if you ask me, but if you hire bikes (wich i would recommend anyway) you should be fine transport wise.

I encountered this issue earlier this year while planning my current trip . The short answer is - Copenhagen to Amsterdam via SAS cost $65/person . My wife and I will make this trip later in October .

There are budget airlines in Scandinavia that compete with the old standby SAS, so flights are often reasonably priced. Do check which airports are used; some are much farther from the city centers than others, and take more time and/or money to reach.

To find flights between European destinations, try Skyscanner: http://www.skyscanner.com/

If you're interested in trains, the Bahn website will show routes (but not prices). It's http://reiseauskunft.bahn.de/bin/query.exe/en, and here's Rick's tutorial for using it: http://www.ricksteves.com/travel-tips/transportation/trains/online-schedules

If you actually want to book train tickets, here's a list of where, from the train guru The Man In Seat 61 (also a great place to learn more about trains in general): http://tinyurl.com/bo8x6o6
