For the Scandinavia Contiki tour, we get the option to start from Berlin at 7 am or Copenhagen at 6 pm on the same day. Those who elected to start in Berlin hop on the bus early in the morning to make their way to Copenhagen. These people came ahead of schedule as by the time I arrived at the hostel around 5 pm, my assigned roommates coming from Berlin have all checked-in and settled.
During the afternoon while waiting for them, I rode a bike down to the lake and ate ice cream while I people watched. Exploring Copenhagen by bike is a great way to see the city with Copenhagen being the second best in the world (after Netherlands) for bike culture.
