Many Danes get around by bicycles or take the metro. Taxis are expensive and ride-sharing services are prohibited in Denmark. You can take the metro from the airport to the city center. It is a 20-minute ride and costs 23.10DKK.
If you are planning to do a lot of sightseeing, consider getting either a City Pass (includes public transportation) or a Copenhagen Card (includes public transportation and admission to a range of attractions in the city).

Ristet hotdog: Hotdog with a grilled sausage, topped with remoulade, mustard, ketchup, raw onion, roasted onion and pickled cucumber. Best with a bottle of chocolate milk.
Rundstykker & Wienerbrød: Rundstykker are traditional Danish breakfast rolls. Get up early and get them straight from the oven at one of the many bake shops in the city. Wienerbrød is Danish pastry and comes in many shapes and flavors. Troubles deciding which one to try? A Snegl or a Spandauer are always safe bets.
