After our first little stroll we realized straight away:
Copenhagen has an incomparable charm …
… or not quite incomparable. My friend was instantly reminded of her trip to Amsterdam.
I guess just like almost everyone, I´m anyway always excited when a city has many green areas and is surrounded by waters. Copenhagen totally puts that in a nutshell. At peak times it is certainly a lot going on in the streets, but you generally never feel as if you are in a big city, because everything seems so calm and relaxed. The many cyclists are surely supporting that atmosphere.
Our hotel was right around the corner from the Tivoli, the famous amusement park. In fact, we even could see the high chair-o-plane. However, since we are both not particularly big fans of fun parks, we decided not to spend money on it.
I definitely recommend a visit to the Rosenborg Castle (Rosenborg Slot) with its incredible gardens. A fantastically beautiful spot, which is maintained with much care and love – that’s obvious.
Your own garden in the middle of Copenhagen
We´ve been extremely stoked about the vegetable gardens of the King’s Kitchen Garden. A group of volunteers are dedicating their time to plant vegetables together – in open beds, but also in a closed greenhouse. Everyone who wants to join and grow his own vegetables in a beautiful garden in the middle of the city is welcomed. Great idea!
In the pedestrian zone, called StrØget, it is generally quite busy. Someone who is looking for a bit more quietness will feel really comfortable in the smaller alleys.
A visit to the most famous sight – the little mermaid – has to be enjoyed with caution.
Heaps of tourists are bustling around to get a perfect shot of the lady. Nice to look at, but to relax a bit there are probably better corners. This includes clearly the nearby pier at Amaliehaven or the Churchill Park, on the other side.
We´ve been spoilt by the weather and were able to enjoy our time at the harbor to the fullest.
The Danish atmosphere is especially omnipresent along the canal of Nyhavn, where you can find quaint boats and colorful houses.
Copenhagen has completely convinced us and unites pretty much everything I want from a beautiful city.
There are good shopping opportunities, so you can experience the big city flair; on the other hand it within a few minutes’ walk you´re in the nature and at the water, away from the crowd.
