Screen Shot 2014-07-07 at 5.45.42 PMFounded by Bishop Absalon in 1160, Denmark’s capital has grown over the centuries into one of the northern Europe’s most charming cities. Packed with historical photo opps like Amalienborg Palace and Tivoli Gardens amusement park as well as feasts for the eyes and palette, Copenhagen can satiate travelers of all varieties. Of course, it’s also got a reputation as one of Europe’s most expensive destinations — but just because you have your eye on the good things in life doesn’t mean that you have to break the bank. Here’s how to experience the best of Copenhagen on any budget.

$10: Eat Like a Dane

You can’t go to Copenhagen and not delve into some of the region’s most iconic dishes, which include smorrebrod (open-faced sandwiches), handmade pastries, and flavorful sausages. If you’re short on time, Torvehallerne is the city’s largest food market and offers 60 different stalls of fresh ingredients and prepared foods. Divide and conquer and you and your travel companions can create a personalized “Best Of” Copenhagen feast.

For fast food, Danes love their hot dogs. Dop has numerous stands around the city, where you can get an organic sausage topped with remoulade and served with a side of mash and roasted beets for $6.25. For dessert, scope out one of the local bakeries such as Lagkagehuset (multiple locations), where you can sample freshly baked goods such as the snail-shaped tryksnegl ($3.30) and other assorted sweet treats.
