They got money to burn! They got roads made of gold! And fantastic globs of meat and other wondrous foods to feast upon! Go to Denmark! Go to Copenhagen! They have gold linings that fill their pockets which are full of gold and wrists covered with Rolexes.
Yeah right, that was not the case for me out there when I visited Copenhagen, a damn pricey Danish city…. probably one of the cities and countries where I had to make funny faces of flinching every time I saw the price of something because I had to turn the mathematics gears in my clunker brain in order to do the currency conversion. And every time, there was an explosion of diarrhea surprise in finding out how damn expensive Copenhagen is! For an insane moment of inaccuracy, I really thought that the locals there were all mighty-fine rich. Well, not really… I guess they’re just used to such high prices and live with it.
Tip: Try not to spend too much time in this city. Out of all the cities and countries that I’ve been to, Copenhagen and Denmark in general, was the priciest of them all – sucking all of my money into their coffers. Even a can of coke (330 mL) can knock you down 6 euros or close to 8 US dollars!
So what’s the verdict? Go back or no? It’s more of a maybe – it’s just a damn expensive place to be at. I did see from the outside that the Tivoli Gardens, which is an amusement park, was there but I decided not to go. When I went to Copenhagen, it was during the late winter and it was still cold! I don’t think riding a roller coaster was going to be that fun at all and I’m not even sure if they were operational. The park was open but I think the entrance fees were cheaper and it was more of a walk around park for spectators and photo grabbers.
Maybe this place might be better in the summer when the weather would be far warmer. But I highly doubt that the prices won’t go down. Like the temperatures in the summer time, the price tags also go up in cost.
