Reply To: Copenhagen in a wheelchair

We visited Copenhagen several years ago and found the city relatively flat and easy to get around. We stayed in an accessible room at the Radisson Blu Scandinavia and could walk or roll to the Tivoli Gardens, city centre and Nyhavn Harbour. We used the harbour buses to travel up an down the river. They have a ramp that deploys at each stop and are easy to roll on and off. Very cost effective way to get around. We ordered a Copenhagen card online before arrival and this gave us entry to several attractions, such as the Tivoli Gardens, and unlimited use of the harbour buses. The Round Tower or Rundetaarn is an interesting place to visit, there is a ramp that winds its way to the top of the tower and spectacular views over the city. An electric wheelchair is a must however. One pitfall that we encountered was that many of the cafes were accessed down several steps, we overcame that obstacle by eating alfresco on the pavement at the many open air cafes and restaurants. We were able to use the disabled toilets shown in Cory-Lee’s article as they were available in many of the city and tourist areas.
