Funny enough, the Danish are known for many types of mouthwatering dishes, however none of which are danishes! The Danes actually have a smorgasbord of pork and sausage dishes for all meals of the day; from plates like Aebleflæsk (cured pork belly,fried with apples, sugar, and thyme)Krebinetter (pork patties servied with peas and boiled potatoes), and Rød Pølse (the Danish equivalent of a hot dog). 

If you're looking to check out one of Copenhagen's hottest spots to eat, we recommend Timo & Co's Bodil. At Bodil, you're guaranteed to find something for everyone; even vegetarians! Their food is served in a similar fashion to tapas as you order anywhere from 3-5 small dishes off of their seasonal menu.


Shown in our how much currency to bring abroad chart above, it costs on average $36.70 for a budget dinner for two in Copenhagen. If you want to include some beverages, on average you're looking at about $7.19 for a pint of beer.

According to Cheap Flights, the best time of the year to travel to Denmark is in January as opposed to July, when prices for airfare skyrocket by 36%. If we had to guess, the more inexpensive prices for January are most likely due to the country's cold weather during this time of year.

However, even though temperatures tend to sit between the high to low 30's in January, that doesn't mean you can't bundle up and enjoy all the scenic views Copenhagen has to offer. Plus, can you imagine the kind of pictures you'll get of the city as it's covered in a nice, thin layer of snow?! Beautiful!
