The easiest way to get to Copenhagen is by flying directly into its airport. Then, there is a very easy metro you can catch to get to the central city area. I would highly recommend using the metro rather than trying to get a taxi as a taxi will be very expensive.
It’s a beautiful, but small city, making it easy to get around. You can easily walk most places, and otherwise use Copenhagen’s metro or bus system. A lot of locals get around on bikes if you decide you want to venture outside the main areas of the city.
To stay in the central area, look for accommodations either near Nyhavn, the Round tower, or the city hall. These are all fairy centrally located places that will allow you to get around easily. Tivoli is also central, but is much busier.
This was a great way to see some of the Copenhagen sites and get our bearings in the city. You can also just opt to rent bikes and explore on your own.

They use the Danish Krone which is not a quick exchange rate. A lot of places do take credit cards if you do not want to take much cash out.
Beware, it rains 200 days of the year and is never really that warm. It rains often and randomly so bring a raincoat. We were there in August and wore jeans 2 out of 3 days so it was definitely cooler as well.
It is a small city than can be seen in a weekend fairly easily.
