Was there around 8 years ago for a few days. U don't really need to spend a long time there. Food is really expensive so I dun have any recommendations.

Some sight seeing places I can remember off my head:

Little Mermaid statue
Nyhavn area
Tivoli Gardens
Some long shopping street which is completely pedestrianized

I recall taking a canal cruise and also visiting Carlsberg. If you have some time you can also take the train across the straits to Malmo, Sweden. 40min ride.

For food...

Noma - Should be open already.

108-is good for breakfast as well

Amass - really good.

The hotdog truck outside Tivoli train station.

Places I like is Christiana. I think it's unique.

i didn't find freetown christiania interesting (that said, one man's poison may be someone else's meat) but the climb up the nearby church of our saviour was rather thrilling.

nyhavn is photogenic.

go to restaurant schoennemann for some very expensive but really scrumptious open-face sandwiches. do make a reservation online, though, to avoid disappointment.

The smell of ganja is strong in the freetown

Yup. Same for Sweden. Bring your passport when you make payment. They require some form of identification.

credit cards are widely accepted in copenhagen, but cash is accepted everywhere, unlike in stockholm. (but i didn't use any when i was there.) however, the use of a foreign-issued credit card (including ours) may incur an additional surcharge of a few percent to cover the fee the merchant has to bear for accepting credit card payment, so some may prefer to use cash instead.

your passport is required for identification sometimes when you choose to pay by credit card because the cashier needs to verify that you're the owner of the credit card.

No need. Ours are (recognized as) chip and signature cards.

But you may need to key in your card pin if you’re using it at self-service payment terminals like ticket machines at the metro or train stations.
