During my one year stay in Denmark (wondering why? Click here ;)) I had the possibility to visit almost all the country. I will soon write a post about Denmark main attractions but for this post I want to focus on the capital:Copenhagen!
Copenhagen is not too big in size so it’s really easy and convenient to visit everything by walk or, if you want to feel like a perfect Danish, rent a bike and cycle!
This is the old harbour of Copenhagen, nowadays there are many bars and pubs by the river where you can sit and enjoy the view maybe while drinking a typical Danish beer 😉
Is the city in the city, indeed, “Freetown” Christiania is a self-proclaimed autonomous neighbourhood. There are not many legislative differences any more but for sure going around there is an experience. Pictures are not allowed so unfortunately I have none..
3| Tivoli Gardens
Tivoli is a famous amusement Park in Copenhagen, it’s particularity is that all the buildings and roller coasters are old style so entering here is like being in another world. My favourite part was the Japanese area, I forgot to be in Denmark for a moment!
Unfortunately rides are quite expensive, but you can buy the ticket just to enter for looking around and chilling on the grass. If you are lucky enough to go there on a sunny day, you won’t regret being there! Plus, in Tivoli many events, parties and concerts are organised, especially during spring and summer, so before going there I strongly suggest you to check their website! 😉
4| The (little) mermaid
This statue is one of the most famous symbols of the city. But well…maybe I expected it differently but the statue itself is not that big. I’ve hear many people noticing this so for all the future travellers there you are advised 😉 Despite this the location is perfect since it’s right by the sea (quite difficult to take picture though 😀 ) and the area you have to walk through to arrive to the statue is also pleasureful!
What about you? Have you ever been to Copenhagen? 🙂
