Firstly - it will be cold! make sure you're prepared for that

 

Got one of the longest shopping streets in the world - lots of bars/restaurants

 

Royal Palace - you can literally wander right up and peer through the windows

 

Tivoli Gardens likely to be shut that time of year but otherwise have a wander

 

Christiana is a must imo - it's a hippie community that lives more or less by its own rules - well worth a visit -https://theculturetrip.com/europe/denmark/copenhagen/articles/christiania-13-things-to-know-about-copenhagens-hippie-free-town/

 

Walk - everywhere!

Like most cities there is way more than just the tourist spots and centre. Have a walk into the districts and mingle with the locals going about their everyday business. Have a coffee/beer at any number of the cafes and watch the world go by 

 

Go to the harbour area - nearby is quite chic with the houseboats and waterfront bars/cafes and apartments - but it's a nice place to spend some time

 

Finally it may seem a little off the wall for a trip to Copenhagen but i would definitely take a train to Malmo across the Oresund Bridge.

In Malmo you can visit the city itself (it's small and contained) A visit to Lila Torg - an outdoor town square with its outdoor ice rink surrounded by the bars/cafes. They have external seating with reindeer skins and blankets to help keep you comfortable - or if not feeling that hardy then you can always go inside.

 

You can go to the coast - it is the Baltic coast and VERY cold with the icy wind blowing in from the sea. You'll also see the strange building called the Twisted Torso. Malmo is small so everything is in walking distance

 

But even further off the wall i'd recommend getting a train from Malmo to Ystaad - it's like a small town stuck in the 1500's with it's beautiful buildings. There isn't a great deal there - a couple of restaurants, a pizzeria and a few shops but it's worth it just for the stunning train journey through the countryside along the coast - likely to be very snowy with the contrast of the herds of reindeer moving through the country

 

Ystaad has latterly become famous for the Swedish detective series Wallander - so it can have a little of a more contrived feel as it caters for the fans who visit to follow in the footsteps of the series - but it's still very traditional
