For Manchester United fans, in particular, Denmark will be a welcoming place, with over 40,000 official members of the Danish Supporters' Club. There'll be plenty of Danish Reds relishing this opportunity to see their beloved club in their own country.

Where to drink in Copenhagen for football fans?

For starters, set your expectations high, in terms of price. War Pigs Bar is a top recommendation and is in a vibrant area with other great bars around it. Bar42 can be a little cheaper. Expect in general to pay £7 for a pint, or more. Proud Mary Pub is a large venue and open late.

How to get to Parken Stadium (FC Copenhagen)

The Parken Stadium is easily accessible via several means of transport. Located in the north of Copenhagen on Øster Allé, just above Trianglen, the stadium is next to one of the city's biggest parks, the Fælledparken.

On public transport, the best route to the Parken Stadium is taking the M3 Metro, opened in 2019. You can get off at any of three Metro stations, all which are a short walk from the ground: Trianglen, Poul Henningsens Plads and Vibenhus Runddel.

If fans are travelling straight from the airport, you can take the S-train to Copenhagen's main station and take the M3 Metro from there. Or you can take the Metro to Kongens Nytorv and switch to the M3 line there.

Fans can drive to Parken stadium but parking is limited. Cycling is another option, with safe cycle paths on nearly every Copenhagen street. Cycling from the city centre to Parken will take just 12 minutes.

As for walking, fans can reach Parken Stadium in 40 minutes from the city centre and 20 minutes if you're already in the north of the city.
