comment Plane-train interchange time in Copenhagen
I'm taking the train — I'm actually going to Malmö. The train times aren't a problem, what I can't find information on is how much time to allow for walking through the airport, waiting for shuttles, queuing for a ticket, etc. Is there a difference in that respect between the metro and the train?

comment where is considered Dublin's (Ireland) city center, and most ideal location for nightlife / pubs?
@KarlCassar It's an unrelated (or at least very loosely related) meaning of the word bar: bar as in a city gate. It may be because such gates barred the way, but that may be just a divagation of mine. The word isn't used in this sense in modern English but remains in place names here and there in the British Isles. Temple Bar would have been a city gate, and then by extension the neighborhood near that city gate, and now the city has grown and the gate is forgotten but the name lives on.

comment What's the most cost-effective destination for a four night trip from Berlin to a non-Schengen destination?
With what citizenship? That can affect the cost and difficulty of obtaining a visa for your short excursion.
