Torvehallerne Market – Copenhagen

Marvelous Markets, pt. 3: Torvehallerne – Copenhagen

Torvehallerne Market – Copenhagen

Torvehallerne Market. I touched on this market a little bit in my 2-day itinerary for Copenhagen, but I wanted to reiterate who totally awesome food market really is and prove that it is an absolute must-do when visiting Copenhagen!

Like everything in Copenhagen, this market is top quality in terms of cleanliness, retailers, and overall atmosphere. But, also like everything in Copenhagen, that quality makes it a little pricier. Pricey for a food market, but definitely a cheaper meal in the grand scheme of things in Copenhagen.

But totally worth it, don’t worry!

Copenhagen: A 2-Day Itinerary

Copenhagen 2-day itinerary

I recently got to visit Copenhagen, Denmark, for the first time. It’s a city that’s been on my bucket list for quite a while, and yet when I arrived I literally had no idea what to expect or what to do.

Not only that, but Copenhagen is pretty expensive, with a 25% sales tax already included in everything you buy. So, I arrived wanting to make the most of my weekend there, but also not spend ALL of my money (which is something I tend to do…).

If only I had had a super awesome blogger map out the perfect weekend in Copenhagen for people on a budget, like me, suggesting things to do, places to eat, and must-see spots! Ah, well now I plan to do just that for if when any of you finally make it to this amazing city!

Although Copenhagen, and all of Denmark and Scandinavia for that matter, are known to be expensive, you can have an amazing time there by benefitting from free/cheap attractions!

So here it is, my 2-day itinerary for anyone visiting Copenhagen for the first time on a budget OR who doesn’t have much time there and wants to make the most of it!

Disclaimer: by no means does this mean that you should only go to Copenhagen for 2 days. There is SO much to do there that you can definitely stay a week or more! But I’ve tried to condense the “must-do” activities over 2 (very busy) days. Enjoy!

For those of you didn’t know, I recently took a long weekend trip to Copenhagen, Denmark, a place that’s been on my “list” for a while now! I had heard nothing but great things from friends and fellow bloggers, and it definitely did not disappoint!

To me, Copenhagen is a city of cleanliness, of markets, of bikes, of tolerance, of beautiful people with beautiful blonde man-buns, of history, of impressive architecture reminiscent of Paris, Amsterdam, and even New Orleans.
