It does not get cold in Copenhagen in November. It has a maritime climate and the average daytime temperature in November is +7.1°C (24-hour average +5.1°C). The record low for November is -7°C, which is still no problem for cycling with a hat and gloves. You do not need any special bicycle or special outdoor gear apart from normal layers for a mild ...

I live in Copenhagen and use my bike to go to work all year like many other locals. There are plenty of bike rentals for tourists as this is a popular way to explore the city. You will find that the scenic city centre and waterfront a best travelled by foot or by bike as car traffic is restricted. Its is a very good city for cycling with high priority to ...

We currently have mild weather in Copenhagen and it should stay that way for the coming month too, although you may see snow and sleet eventually. That should not be a big problem, given the correct clothes, as stated by others. As for bikes, check this out: http://bycyklen.dk/en

That depends on where you need to go for the meeting. If it's somewhere on the metro line, you can expect to be on the metro - with a paid ticket - within 30 min of touchdown, and in central Copenhagen within 20 min after that. If it's not on the metro line, but still close to the city, you can add 10-15 minutes. As long as it's central Copenhagen, it's ...

This is actually really easy - I've been to Tivoli twice, and it's conveniently right next to the central train station. As Wikitravel says: It takes twelve minutes by train to get from Kastrup to the central station (Hovedbanegården) in the city centre. You need a ticket for three zones which can be purchased from one of the automated vending ...

You won't find much, except bars and such, open at that hour. You can of course visit many noteworthy buildings, if you are content to just see them from the outside. This includes Christiansborg, Amalienborg, Marble Church, Vor Frelsers Kirke and many others. There are also interesting landmarks such as Nyhavn and the statue of the Little Mermaid. I'd ...

In October 2014, the British consulate in Copenhagen decided 100% of all General Visitor applications within 15 days. They report an average of less than 10 days. These figures would be strongly indicative of what you can expect in December 2014 and January 2015. https://www.gov.uk/visa-processing-times If you are only in Copenhagen for 16 days, it's ...

As far as I remember people cycle all year long. Maybe when it snows a bit less people do it due to ice. Relating to renting, the city used to have a free public bike system. The problem sometimes is more to find a bike available.

The depicted bus is not a special "snake line", but an ordinary bus on line 6A which is fancifully decorated as a full-exterior ad bought by the zoo. Line 6A does go from the city center to the zoo -- there are several stops in the city center, such as at Nørreport, Rådhuspladsen, near Vesterport in front of the "Palads" movie theater, and nearish the ...

I travel from or through Copenhagen frequently, and have never noticed this service. In fact, I have never seen it in any Scandinavian airport, so I would go on a limb and say no.

With the hotel being in the middle of the Copenhagen red light district, it can't be a great surprise that it's noisy outside at night. In this area, you are also most likely to see both prostitutes, drug addicts and dealers hanging around. I might be ignorant and wouldn't consider any place in Copenhagen to be unsafe, but is there a particular reason why ...

Showering at CPH The Copenhangen Airport website carries no mention of public shower facilities, except for in the page specific to the CPH Regus Business Lounge which gives you a 2h access to the lounge, access to showers and a breakfast for 250DKK. You can also buy access to the lounge at 80DKK per hour. Prices are quoted at the time of writing. There ...

According to Googla Maps, there is a bicycle rental shop little bit far from the airport, the address is: Bikify Holmbladsgade 27 2300 København Denmark The distance is around 6km, you can take the bus that will drop you there faster, or you can walk and make it in 1hr. This is the full route in Google maps. Screenshot from Google Maps ...

You can get there by also by bus (check Eurolines) or train, but the best options are the ones you already mentioned. I wouldn't recommend taking a bus. It would be a very long and tiring bus ride all the way from Greece. You would have to change buses since there is no direct bus line. And the price is unlikely to be much better than flying. Taking the ...

You got me curious so I decided to look into that. There is apparently a whole set of sites dedicated to parking in Copenhagen, but I think that this one provides a great aggregation of them.

I know its been quite a while since the question has been asked, but if someone still finds this useful, here's my two cents. I was in Denmark a few months ago, and parking in central Copenhagen can be really expensive. However, just outside the center it is not too difficult to find a cheap or if you are really lucky, a safe and free place to park your car ...

The obvious big thing you miss out on is a tour guide. But you and I think very much alike. When traveling, I like to save on paid tours by using audio tour podcasts (or podwalks), so I immediately checked my various audio tour apps and podcast bookmarks, and you are in luck! You are going to the right place, because Copenhagen X actually claims to have ...

One or two months before you're traveling is certainly not too early to buy a ticket. Whether you can buy it with cash depends more on the airline you will be traveling with than where you're going. Many low-cost carriers sell their tickets exclusively through the web, but with a traditional airline it should be possible to buy a ticket with cash still. ...

Walking time is estimated to be about 15min (see overview+timing map and detailed T2/3 map) and suggested transfer times are about 45min (official times). SAS has a page giving info on 'from the US to Copenhagen and onwards' which states arriving at T3 there will be screens showing transfer options and times to T1.

There's no appreciable difference in how "easy" it is to fly from Copenhagen or Stockholm. Make your choice based on which airport it is most convenient to get yourself to at the end of your trip, and/or where you get the best ticket deal. Norwegian flies direct from all three Scandinavian capitals to a number of US cities, but won't offer through ticketing ...

The cheapest hotel that I'm aware of in Copenhagen (you can of course find much cheaper hostels) where you have your own private room and bathroom is Cabinn. They have several locations in Copenhagen, I prefer the one near the main train station, "Kobenhavn City Hotel" as they call it. The rooms are small, but clean and reasonably comfortable. The ...

No need to fly, but if you are short on time it might be helpful. From Cologne you can take a train to Copenhagen, it takes about 9 hours during the day, with just one change. I guess there will be buses as well, likely overnight ones, as that is what I remember from older timetables. But the overnight (no change) train is no longer on the schedule. From ...

While there are many good answers, I think there is a big point being missed here: the great unpredictability of Danish weather. Contrary to what another answer claims, the temperature can go way lower than -7. For instance, the Danish extreme for November is just below -21 degrees Celcius (and there's not much difference across the relatively small ...

The cheapest way to stay in Copenhagen (or, indeed, in any other city) would be by Couchsurfing.
