Denmark in October

We will be in Denmark arriving 18 Oct and departing early 27 Oct. We have an apt for our first 5 nights in Copenhagen. We'd like then to drive around Denmark and/or possibly southern Sweden for 4 days. Any suggestions for sights, accommodations, meals, etc? We are a retired couple and a college student granddaughter.

Driving/Renting a car anywhere in Scandinavia is on the expensive side and gasoline/diesel costs $8-$10/gallon. I suggest you compare that to the relative cost(s) of a EurRail Saver/FlexiPass. NB: A pass would let you travel to Malmo in Sweden or Ystad (more attractive) if you're a Kurt Wallander fan. Unless your Internet search(es) have suggested a particular city/town/area you want to tour that is off the beaten track, I always recommend a stay in Aarhus (Denmark's second city). It's a lighter city, and it has some great cultural attractions (Moosgaard, Den Gamle By, the ruins of a Viking village in the basement of a bank, etc.). Denmark has a chain of less-expensive hotels called Cab-Inn ( in the principal cities. They offer modern, solid, safe accommodations in the city centers and offer a breakfast buffet. European restaurants post their menus (w/prices) outside the entrance(s) and the larger department stores generally have a good cafeteria.
