Unwelcoming Copenhagen!

My stay in Copenhagen was not the best.

I arrived in the city at six in the evening, to find the tourist office closed and all the hotels full. I eventually got a room in a rather poor hotel at a five star price. The Danes may be nice people, but some of them know how to rip off tourists.

The room was a fifteen minute walk from the station, so I decided to go there, get some food and then book my onward travel to Hamburg for the morning. I did have the train times, but I only had my tablet and felt that at the station there would be some of the excellent German ticket machines.

In the end, I got an excellent gluten-free meal at an Italian restaurant by the station, but by the time, I’d finished it was eight and the station was shut. There were no automatic machines, that sold tickets to Hamburg either.  Customer Service? Forget it!

So I went back to my grotty hotel room and went to bed.  There wasn’t even any reliable wi-fi, and there was nothing I could understand on the television.  In fact, I doubt that even a Dane could have understood it, as both the sound and the picture was excrutiating.
