Denmark and Sweden

Post by Siani » Fri Nov 20, 2015 2:20 pm

Hi just wondering if someone could give me some advice please. I have booked to go to Copenhagen for Christmas week. I want to drive up to Sweden and have hired a car for the duration from the airport. I was wondering where the best region or town would be close drive to a ski resort. I know that there are quite a lot of expats in Thailand so maybe someone could advise me. Also any other things I must see. Thanks Siani

Drive to Sweden? I assume there must be a ferry involved somewhere.

There is a bridge between Copenhagen and Malmo

OT
There's a very good TV series which gets its name from this bridge

There is thankfully, as it's Duty Free - both Denmark and Sweden are ridiculously expensive.

Can't really advise on Ski Resorts Siani, but as far as Denmark is concerned, I really enjoyed Aalborg - I worked there for a month or so a few years back. There is a ferry from Sweden to Aalborg Port!! :D

Then again..... you can take the bridge!!

Thanks for the info everyone. Yes there is a bridge. I have watched the bridge and the new season starts this Saturday I think. I am also hooked on Wallander and Arne Darl those programmes have prompted my visit. I get a four star hotel offers on hotel. com for around £50 a night. Car hire is £107 for the week. I suppose restaurants are expensive, alth I am into eating locally. The flight was just under £160 from London not bad for Christmas week. I am looking forward to it.

Well there are many kind of restaurants with very different prices.

A burger meal on McDonalds or, the in my opinion better alternative, "Max" is around 6-7 Euro. A pizza on a local pizzeria (there are pizzerias everywhere in Sweden) also around 6-9 Euro. Dinner for one with one bear at a cheap but decent place starts around 15-20 Euro. Main course at a good restaurant maybe 20-30 Euro. A beer 5-7 Euro. A bottle of wine starts at around 30 Euro but can of course cost much more.

For lunch many restaurants sell "Dagens Lunch" (at least on week days) which is something like "Lunch of Today" and usually you have two to five dishes to choose from and the price is usually around 7 to 10 Euro including soft drinks and coffee.

Thanks I will certainly look at it. I think these series are superb. Sorry it should have been Arne Dahl.

Hi Siani.

I live in Copenhagen, and work all over in Denmark and I woulden't suggest Aalborg if you only have a few day in DK before you go skiing.

Tivoli in Copenhagen is a must in christmas time and Dyrehaven near Klampenborg just 14 km. north of Copenhagen center is very nice if you enjoy a good long walk or take a horse carriage around and see all the deer, and eat at some of the restaurant.
There is train go to Klampenborg.

If you go further north to Helsingoer you can take the boat to Helsingborg which take 20 min.

As other mention it's a little expencive in DK,but food can be found in many range.

Have a nice holiday whatever you choose, and fell free to ask if you need further information.

:cheers: :cheers:
