Hop On Hop Off Bus Bus.. Review

I bought a two day ticket on this bus. Adult internet rate $20.95 each. We had a part of a tour on the 10th, and on the 11th we managed to do the Red and Green lines. The Mermaid (Red) Tour takes 1 hour

Mermaid Tour Stops:

* Town Hall Square
* Axeltorv/Tivoli
* Rosenberg
* Gustav Kirken
* Langelinie
* Tourist Information
* The Little Mermaid
* Gefion Fountain
* Amalienborg
* Nyhavn/Kongens Nytorv
* Hojbro Plads/Stroget

The Green Christiania Tour overlaps the mermaid tour and additional stops include:

* Main Station/Grand Hotel
* DGI Sports Centre (originally I had planned to stop here and use
their pools)
* Hotel Marriott
* Glyptoteket
* Christiansborg
* Hojbro Plads/Stroget
* Our Saviors Church
* Holmen
* Casino Copenhagen

By now it had started raining so we didn't try the Yellow Line which includes the Zoo, and Carlsberg and just went back to the hotel.

Because of the cold rainy weather the bus had a canvas cover.

Hop On Hop Off Boat Canal & harbour tours Review

It was recommended to me that I take this boat tour rather than the bus tour of Copenhagen. And I would really have liked to do so. But our plane got in late, we were jet lagged and I didn't get out to start touring until after the last boat left. Plus the whole time we were in Copenhagen it was really cold and rainy.

Like the Hop on Hop off bus, there are three routes all without a guide

The Green tour boat sails from the centre of Copenhagen (Nyhavn) via the Opera and Battery Sixtus. Then there is the Little Mermaid, Langelinie/the cruise ship harbour, The Trekroner Fortress, Halvandet/Copenhagen´s beach club and then Amaliehaven/The Royal residence on the way back to Nyhavn

The Orange line leaves from Nyhavn, and the route includes Homen, the North Atlantic Cultural House, Christianshavns Torv, The Black Diamant, Gammel Strand/the old fishermen´s village.

The Blue Route includes Islands Brygge/outdoor swimming facility, the Hotel Marriott, and Fisketorvet

There are three possibile payment rates for boat trips

Guided tours
Adult DKK 60,-

Waterbus hop-on hop-off without a guide - One day ticket, (All waterbusses) Adult DKK 60,-

2 Days ticket, Freedom ticket, (all waterbusses, guided tours and Open Top Busses)
Adult DKK 220,-

Train Station Train Review

We didn't actually ride on the train in Copenhagen, but we did walk through the station on our way to Tivoli. I had been recommended to take note of the architecture particularly, but I don't have any good pictures of it.
