Denmark, Copenhagen Guide (B): 12 Cheap and Free Cultural Things to Do in Copenhagen

The beloved capital city of Denmark, Copenhagen, is one of the most visited cities in Europe. Although not cheap, many backpackers and budget travelers want to explore the city, but without spending an entire month's earnings. Luckily, there are plenty of inexpensive and free things to do throughout the city, and here are 12 tips and ideas for the budget traveler. 

The Lakes, known as Søerne, consist of three rectangular lakes: Sortedam Lake, Peblinge Lake and Sankt Jørgens Lake. Once the sun comes out, locals and families walk around the lakes and picnic in the nearby green spaces. In the summer, rent paddle boats from Søernes Bådudlejning (Copenhagen Lakes Boat Rentals), situated by the Dronning Louises Bridge.
