    Walking Around Copenhagen - Day One

    January 11, 2018 in Denmark ⋅ ⛅ 2 °C

    On our walk we visited Amalienborg Palace and watched the changing of the guard ceremony. The Royal Guard march from Rosenborg Castle to Amalienborg Palace and we have read that the Queen must have been home as the guards were accompanied by the Royal Guards music band. We continued walking to Nyhavn which was originally a busy commercial port where ships from all over the world would dock. Today the beautiful old houses have been renovated and classy restaurants dominate the old port.

    Many of the houses lining the quays of Nyhavn have been the homes of prominent artists. Hans Christian Andersen, used to live in no. 20 which is where he wrote the fairy-tales The Tinderbox, Little Claus and Big Claus, and The Princess and the Pea. We continued walking around Copenhagen there so many statues and lovely buildings.
