How to get there:

Flights: Czech Airlines offers direct flights to Copenhagen. Flights in October and November for 2 people were from 9,000 to 10,000 CZK. Norwegian airlines also offers direct flights (for a little less), however the times weren’t so favorable.

The flight from Prague to Copenhagen’s Kastrup airport takes about one hour and twenty minutes. Take the train (from Terminal 3) to Copenhagen Central Station. The ride takes 12 minutes and costs DKK 30 (4 EUR). You can also take the metro for DKK 36.

Where to stay:

The good news is that hotel rooms in Copenhagen aren’t as expensive as those in London, but in general it’s a pricey place to sleep. Normally I don’t recommend staying in the vicinity of a city’s central train station, but in the case of Copenhagen I will. The area is home to many of the city’s main attractions (Ny Carlsberg Glyptotek museum, Tivoli, the Stroget shopping streets) and a couple of budget friendly hotels as recommended in this article by The Guardian. The area of Frederiksberg, just west of the central station, is home to Frederiskberg Have.
