Rent a bike

If you want to experience Copenhagen the way a local does, it’s highly recommended that you jump on a bike. At Copenhagen Backpackers, we have a fleet of reliable and easy to ride bikes for you to rent. Often it is faster to travel around the city by bike than it is by metro or bus. It’s also a lot greener, of course.
