I am going for 4-5 days to Copenhagen for New Years and I'm researching the intricacies of the city and on what to do and how to do it without going over the budget being an expensive city that is.

What do you recommend in terms of public transportation? Should I buy single tickets on a As You Go basis or buy the Copenhagen Card which costs almost 100 euros for 5 days? Is it really worth it? A single trip costs 3 euros more or less (22 krone) and if I buy in packs of 10 it drops to 1.5 euros per trip.

But if you buy the Copenhagen Card there are a lot of stuff like museums and local atractions that you'd get it for free, so a little help here is needed.

Is the city centre that big or can you easily walk around town from one point to another? If it's flat then I'm okay walking around the city (I come from Lisbon and walk everywhere so I'm used to it... when I went to Paris, and since it was flat, walking felt like a breeze compared to Lisbon. I walked almost 20 miles the first day).

Since it's going to be such a short stay what are the MUST's in the city? Especially for people into photography.

Thanks anything else is welcome!

I am not from Copenhagen, but just 2 hours away (in Blekinge, Sweden). There is lots of interesting buildings in the Copenhagen city centre. It's easy to walk from one point to another. Whenever I go to Copenhagen I use as little public transport as possible. I'd also recommend visiting Freetown Christiania for a different experience, which is a walking distance from the city centre.

And with public transport (train) you can reach neighboring Malmö, Sweden in 30 minutes for 10 euro or so and spend a couple of hours there as well.

Well, its closer between Copenhagen to Malmö than it is from the east side of Manhattan to the west side, almost feels like a suburb to Copenhagen. Just an advice of how advanced the public transport in that region is, nothing to get hysterical about. Copenhagen-Malmö is the Detroit-Windsor of Scandinavia.

Copenhagen is far superior to its direct neighbor, though.

A shame you don't have time to travel through Jutland - a great place to visit with lots of warm, friendly people.
