An introductory guide

Reviewed on July 06, 2020
Paperback | Verified

This 136-page book - the 4th printed edition of May 2020 - is an interesting and readable (the two are not always found together) introduction to the attractions of the Danish capital city.

Being a “POCKET” guide, this is more of a quick reference guide to the HIGHLIGHTS of the area, and not the detailed study you would find in a larger volume. For that, you should see a full-sized guide. This is more useful for a short break or weekend trip.

Unlike many guides, this is not a glossy booklet dotted with colourful photographs to make it look superficially attractive, but a (literally) rough guide in terms of comparative paper finishes, but well-designed and presented, with readable text, useful maps, and (well-chosen) photographs only where space allows. The excellent design and layout means that you don’t need unnecessary spot illustrations to break up column after column of small-printed data.

The Contents are
P004: Introduction (highlights and suggested Itineraries.)

P023: Places (“The Guide”): containing 8 chapters, each covering a particular area of the city, plus two for outside the city.
P024: Tivoli & Radhuspladsen
P030: Stroget & the inner city
P044: Slotsholmen
P050: Nyhavn & Frederiksstaden
P060: Rosenborg & around
P070; Christianshavn & Holmen
P078: Vesterbro & Frederiksberg
P088: Norrebro & Osterbro
P098: Day-trips
P106: Malmo

P111: Accommodation

P119: Essentials (the A-Z Directory, information on travel, etc.)
P127: Language
P132: Index
