How safe is Copenhagen?

Copenhagen is a very safe city. We generally don’t hear about a lot of attacks, though it is always advised to consider not going home to strangers and always keep your drink close to you if you’re in town. There have been instances of rape drug use in drinks, but this isn’t an overall fear I would have. I would always advise ladies from anywhere in the world to act with caution no matter what. People are very nice and it is safe to ask for guidance.

Copenhagen is a very safe city. I loved here my entire life and always felt safe, also alone late at night. Of course always take precautions, but in general don’t worry. There are no specific parts of the city that are very dangerous and you shouldnt go

Copenhagen is very safe. Safetywise its the perfect location for solo travelling women. As a woman there are no issues walking alone after dark or using public transport and that goes for all parts of the city.

Here in Denmark we have an unspoken culture, that we dont speak to strangers. If you ask for help, then most will help you. But not a lot of people will speak to you unless you speak to them first. There is very little crime, but don’t go on the vest side of Copenhagen central station after dark, if you don’t know the area😊

Very friendly city, or country I would say. The entire Denmark is super safe for solo-travelling and I do think it’s a nice place to visit. Make sure to try the wienerboller when you come. My personal favourite. Just a little expensive :)

Copenhagen is a very safe city - and you also feel very safe, because there is always a lot of people around. It never really gets dark, because there is streetlamps everywhere. People usually don't try to come in contact with strangers.

Copenhagen is a nice and safe city, there are often people around at all hours. Most streets are covered by light even at night. Lots of parks and beautiful areas even in the city. Public transport is safe and quite easy to use.

One of the safest cities I have ever lived in! I happened to walk home alone after parties at 4 am, and never felt unsafe. Never got anything stolen and people even leave babies outside of stores so safe it is. You will never be worried about your safety in copenhagen

Copenhagen is one of the safest Capitals in the world, and definitely the safest city I lived in. I’m never worried about walking or biking home at night, or going alone in public transports either in the weekend or week days. We are privileged to feel safe in clubs and parties, at our working place or at the beach. For sure, there’s still cases of sexism, of abuse and harassment, but I feel safer here as a woman then in any other city.

Copenhagen is so safe, that they leave their babies unguarded outside on the street while they sleep in their strollers. Copenhagen is probably the world’s safest city. They don’t use cash, so you always pay with card or Apple Pay, so no risk of getting cash stolen. Everyone is fluent in English which makes it easy to travel and get around. Very friendly people.

I was in Copenhagen in February 2024 abd it was literally freezing. Most of my time was spent in cafes to drink something hot. Even though the city is incredible. Lots of bikers around there, you need to be careful even if you are pedestrian. I spent 3 bights in there and i never felt uncomfortable and it was really safe.

Solo travel experience

The city of Copenhagen is stunning by itself, it’s very sophisticated, clean and friendly. The weather can be a mess somethimes - gloomy very often, this is one of the reasons why, as a sensitive person to this stuff, wouldn’t recommend to go solo, as I felt kinda lonely or sadish on this trip even tho it was amazing in the way of the activities and experience I have. Things to do - for me, this trip was to learn how to calm down and don’t plan every step I do, so I actually don’t have any itinerary, however see Pinterest for quick recommendation, see Youtube vlogs for a more detailed recos, if you have more time. However, looking back now, I definitely think that going to the beach a bit further from the centre is such a great thing to do. Thrifting is very popular in these northern counties and you can find beautiful clothes and accessories indeed, just keep on mind that Copenhagen is pricey, at least for our, Czech rate. On the “more typical tourist note” I recommend you to buy a ticket to a commented cruise through the cannals of Copenhagen and sea, it takes just around an hour and is worth every coin in my opinion. The views and everything. And you get in and off right in the centre of the city. Oceanium was absolutely beautiful and cute spot. It’s right next to the airport, so in my case, I went there to hide from the rain, but it turned out as an wonderful experience. And mainly walking and biking around the streets, randomly, is the best thing you can do, connected with coffee shops, bistros and local shops runs. Q12 Coffee And Eatery, H. U. G. Bakery, Darcy’s Coffee, Sidecar, Pico, Andersen & Maillard, Bistro Verde. These are just few, but fabulous places of food/coffee I really adore. I also have a list of many other place, that I haven’t been to, but are surely amazing. I stayed in a hostel called Sleep in Heaven. Unfortunately I can’t recommend you this one. I didn’t feel good, staying in there. The layout, beds, space, bathrooms, people, and just the vibes in there weren’t mine. The great thing was the possibility to rent a bike for a small amount for the whole day, this I appreciated so much. For the budget including everyhing, I thing I spend around 500 or 600€. The means of transport are fine in Copenhagen, however the bike is best option for me always. However buses are running on time in there, but I found it very difficult to understand the routes etc. And, if I’m right, they might not go to some parts of the centre. So waliking and biking is key for me.

Solo travel experience

Copenhagen was the place where I went on my first solo trip, and it was a great choice. The city is very pedestrian-friendly, with so many things to see. I loved Torvehallerne for the food, mainly breakfast and lunch (Smørrebrød and Grød were my two favorite stalls). I highly recommend renting a bike and riding around the city, just like the Danes do.
