i am a teenager going to copenhagen this summer, any reccomendations on fun stuff to do, besides like buildings and castles and stuff? thanks! also- does anyone know of any nightclubs that let teens in?

"Tivoli Gardens in the center of Copenhagen is alive every night - it is one of the world's most famous amusement parks. Take a train to the Hans Christian Andersen area outside the city - you'll see the countryside and learn about Denmark's most famous author. In the castles and stuff, make sure you see the changing of the guard at noon at Amalienbourg Palace (you can get much closer in Copenhagen than you ever could in London). The crown jewels are at Rosenborg Palace. It's not as crowded and rushed as in London, so much more enjoyable. Go by train to the Elsinore castle of Shakespeare fame (Hamlet) and take the ferry over to Sweden. The Danish town of Helsingor is across the water from the Swedish town of Helsingborg. The Danes call the castle Kronborg and there are exhibits on the famous actors and actresses who have played Hamlet, and the history of the castle."

"My parents went to Copenhagen once and I've always dreamed of going. There is plenty to do there. You can go visit the Rosenborg Castle in Copenhagen. It gives you plenty of history, background, and interesting facts about Denmark and the city. You could also go to Legoland. It's an amusement park with the illosion of being made entirely out of legos! They've got all sorts of different rides and is said to be one of the best attractions in Denmark. The Little Mermaid is also an interesting site to see. The monument is based on the first version of the Little Mermaid, not the Disney version. It is deffinately a site to see and offers many interesting facts of the first version. Finally, there is the Tivoli Gardens. In my oppinion, it's one of the most beautiful gardens in the world by the pictures I've seen! Especially at night when the whole place is lit up in what seems like Christmas decorations! It's deffinately a breath-taking site! Again, I have never been to Copenhagen on my own but I've seen pictures and have heard stories of my parent's voyage. I've also done some research and it's deffinately on my to-do list for when I get older. I hope this becomes helpful on your trip. Be careful, be safe, and HAVE FUN! ;D"

"Go to Tivoli!! You will love it."

"You should go to a club or something by night.. it's awesome! You'll find the good bars and such around the area of "strøget" (the main shopping street i Copenhagen)"
teddys_sweetheart@sbcglobal.net :
"About the clubs; the drinking age in denmark is 14. But you have to be 16 to buy alcohol. So all clubs allow kids 16 and older inside. But most places really water down the alcohol and they always overcharge on drinks. You'd have more fun going sight seeing and just looking around."
libbysaggers :

Is Copenhagen expensive when u get there - to eat/drink etc etc I mean? Im going for Newyear - got flight quite cheap - but wondered if it was pricy once there. Can anyone suggest a nice little hotel (cheap but Nice) clean etc.

Sender :
"The town is very difficult to get around in due to being built around the canals. There are times when you can actually see the building that you want to go to and can't get there. Try the Peter Lieps Hus Restaurant for good food and people watching. for sleeping try Carstens Appel. Its a very cool place that is more like apartments than anything else and the price is right. Half the fun is stumbling on hidden restaurants and gallerys. I'm envious!"
southernrightwhale :
"If you are from England, I don't think you will find Copenhagen very expensive. You can allways find cheap decent restaurants with the main meal for under 100 danish kr (9 english pounds). Beers are probably the same as in England, about 50-70 danish kr (4,5 - 6 english pounds) for a half liter depending on the place. If you are just looking for a snack you can get a great danish hotdog for about 25 danish kr (2.25 english pounds). I stayed at hotel Nebo , it was small but clean, and very centrally located - right next to the main train station and the charming walking streets of Copenhagen. Their economy rooms are cheap, and you get a discount for booking online."
reinesoleil822 :
"There is nothing cheap in Copenhagen, I don't care what anyone says. I have been to many other places in Europe and I live in Denmark on the West Coast. Eating lunch for US$20 is expensive is you compare to Paris where you can have a decent lunch off the beaten path for 8 to 10 Euros or even less if you're willing to have a ham and cheese melt with some frenchfries. The cheapest you can expect realistically for a hotel room in CPH is about US$80 a night. Do your homework and reserve early. Christmas and New Year get a little crowded there, although I haven't had to stay in a hotel around that time, I have friends there. Thanksgiving weekend can be a bargain though on airfare which would help you with budgeting. I have added a few sites that could help you make an educated decision based on what other users have found in their stays. Also Copenhagen's visitor's bureau has a site and something they have good "tilbud" (specials in danish). It's a pretty city. Have fun and be safe. PS: Any hotel around the main train station (Hovedbanegård) will be cheaper by CPH standards but I can't say anything about cleanliness, there are conflicting reports. A friend of mine stayed at Dan Hostels in the dormstyle accomodations and it's OK but it's still pretty stiff when you think that in some countries you can stay in a 3/4-star for $100 a night. Hope this helps."

"I have been in Copenhagen in June, in Cab Inn Scandinavia Hotel (Vodroffsvej 55, DK-1900 Frederiksberg C, Tel.: (+45) 35 36 11 11, Fax: (+45) 35 36 11 14,). 70 euro per day. It's quite clean, but not nice, because the rooms are very small, in IKEA's style. Food is expensive and not diverse. The citizens like to save on everything, so if you will eat in cheap restaurant you should clear the table by yourself :-("
Brad L :

Has any one heard of Copenhagen long cut strait or strait long cut. I bought it once and loved it now I cant find it anywhere.All I can find is copenhagen strait/ and copenhagen long cut

James B :
"You should be able to find it in any conventient store. Check at a truck stop, I'm sure they have it."
DK :
"The Straight is long cut I believe......they may have just changed the labeling. If you liked the cope skoal straight tastes similar and is definitely a long cut."

New research shows that people with blue eyes have a single, common ancestor. A team at the University of Copenhagen have tracked down a genetic mutation which took place 6-10,000 years ago and is the cause of the eye colour of all blue-eyed humans alive on the planet today.Sweet new pickup line I can use: "Oh hey baby..You and me go way back."

A team of scientists has tracked down a genetic mutation that leads to blue eyes. The mutation occurred between 6,000 and 10,000 years ago, so before then, there were no blue eyes."Originally, we all had brown eyes," said Hans Eiberg from the Department of Cellular and Molecular Medicine at the University of Copenhagen.
