Enjoy a ride on Copenhagen’s “Boat Bus!”  Budget traveler pro tip – the boat bus is “free” with your standard bus/train/metro pass (We bought a month-long pass at the train station for about $60 each. An amazing bargain!)

You can hop on the boat from many stops. From Copenhagen’s National Theatre, you can either travel to the left (toward the Opera and the Little Mermaid), or to the right (to more mellow sites) or do a long round trip. We most enjoyed the trip to the right – fewer people and low-key sites.

The photos show, starting in the upper left corner and going clockwise
