If you’ve watched the scandi noir The Bridge, you’ll know it makes you want to hop on a plane and see both Copenhagen and Malmo all at once. Luckily for me, that’s exactly what I did about a month after binge watching the show. Hopping from one country to another may sound improbable, but it’s incredibly easy, feels like any other quick train/tube journey and includes a ride over the bridge itself.
In order to spend an afternoon there, I bought a return train ticket from Copenhagen Central Station for around £15 (I can’t actually remember how much it was – but it must have been cheap because I’m stingy and would remember if it had been expensive). We got the train over the bridge at about midday and stayed until 8pm, giving us enough time for some burgers, a wander around the city and cocktails by a fire after freezing our toes off.
It’s worth noting if you’re going during the winter months, I’d make an early start as there are limited sunlight hours. We only had a few hours of daylight when we arrived but still had a lovely time.
If you’re on a really tight schedule, it might be worth buying the train tickets in advance, but we bought them at the station as the trains run about once an hour each way, so it’s a very regular service.
