    København

    August 22, 2017 in Denmark

    So across the water we went.. well on a train.. over a bridge and into Denmark!

    To drive the famous Oresund bridge - joining Sweden and Denmark - costs a whopping 35 euros each way. With parking rumoured to cost the same, taking the train was definitely the best option.

    Our primary reason for visiting Denmark was the Carlsberg visitors centre. We are both beer fans but Carlsberg is definitely one of my favourites! There is a free shuttle bus to the visitors centre where your ticket gives entry to the various exhibitions - including a Guinness World Record Breaking collection of unopened beer bottles - and two free beers. We also paid a little extra for a guided tour and our bearded guide was funny and informative. We enjoyed the free beers in beautiful sunshine and spent a good four hours here before heading back to the city.

    Planning to visit Nyhavn - the colourful houses at the port - we were not disappointed. Copenhagen is a really nice city. It feels alive and definitely tops my list of Nordic/Scandinavian cities so far. The spires on the churches are interestingly designed, the body of water running through its centre reminds me of London with ultra modern buildings lined up next to grand old ones, there are canals and waterways everywhere.

    Not to mention the bike traffic - whilst Amsterdam is yet to come - I have never seen so many people using bikes - old and young, in suits, casual wear, dresses and heels and full on lycra kit - I was in heaven. Just a shame that we couldn't join them.

    Thanks to Cormac for the recommendation, we headed to Papireon where we found a super cool street food market. It was packed to the rafters with tourists and locals alike. There were so many amazing foods to choose from but we settled on some falafel pita humus thing. Absolutely delicious and set us up for the stroll back to the train station.

    There are tonnes of things to do in Copenhagen that we lacked both time and money for.

    We'll be back.

    Recycling is not garbage

    June 8, 2017 in Denmark

    We got up early enough to eat breakfast, pack and check out. We saw most of the "must sees" Copenhagen had to offer yesterday so we decided today that we were going to go to the Carlsberg brewery.

    We dropped our bags off at the train station and we're on our way. There was a free shuttle that ran from the city centre & to the brewery for free.

    We walked around the brewery museum and learned about the process it takes to make beer as well as the history of Carlsberg and how it took its name (after his son) His son eventually started his own brewery but made some changes to the beer.

    We also got to pet some really cute horses wearing hats... well I did anyways. Kaylee barely even touched them with a 10 inch pole.

    With our ticket we got a free gift which was a pin & a free beer. We went into the brewery/bar to get our beer. I had one that had a citrus twist to it & Kaylee had just a regular Carlsberg. So get this. Kaylee ordered a burger with her beer & the guy said like oh dont worry about it, pay me later..... SHE NEVER PAID. She completely forgot and we only remember like 2 hours later lmao!! (It was also a 20$ burger hahahah)

    We went back to wait for the shuttle bus to go back to city center. We ended up taking to these 5 ladies from Michigan. They we're freaking hilarious. We talked about how much we love looking at Justin Trudeau and how trump looks like a orange Cheeto hahaha. We somehow got on the topic of weed & they were telling us how they have a medical order for weed back home. Me and kaylee were killing ourselves laughing, we highly suggested to go to Christiana village to go have some fun. They were going to go hahah.

    Back to city centre & we walked around (i needed to get my patch & my liquor) I also ate dinner/late lunch at this Asian restaurant (similar to Thai express) omg it was so good. I want to go back nowwwwwww.

    We walked & walked some more until we needed to head to our bus. It was actually on time.

    So we get on the bus 21:00 & there were these two Spanish people talking SO loud... but wait it gets worse. I'm really not the type to hate on people having a good time... but this was too much. At our next stop the Spanish people got off with some other people as well. On comes a group of 10 teenage guys all drinking beer, talking super loud and smelling like smoke... they were so obnoxious. I love seeing people have a good time but it was now 11pm & some people have already been on the bus for 8 hours. Also just to make things a bit better.. it was 45 degrees on this bus & the toilet didn't flush. All in all, I slept probably for 4 hours but all broken up.... And that's with 50mg of Benadryl....

    The most important part is we got to Stockholm alive and well (except really exhausted)

    Kopenhagen, DNK

    September 30, 2017 in Denmark

    Für unseren Flug nach Kopenhagen mussten wir schon um halb fünf aufstehen. Da wir ein bisschen verspätet dran waren, mussten wir schnell unser Mietauto abgegeben. Gott sei Dank hatten wir nur Handgepäck ansonsten wäre es dieses Mal echt knapp geworden. Moni und Gebi haben uns an das Gate begleitet wo wir uns dann von ihnen verabschiedet haben.

    Im Flugzeug konnten wir leider nicht viel schlafen und haben uns daher gleich in Kopenhagen in unserer gemütlichen Airbnb Wohnung erholt. Wir mussten außerdem auch die Island-Woche ein bisschen sacken lassen 😊. Das schnelle Reisen sind wir nicht mehr gewohnt.

    Am nächsten Tag haben wir uns dann aber mit vollen Energietanks in die Stadt aufgemacht. Kopenhagen hat uns richtig gut gefallen. Es gibt viele schöne alte Gebäude und die Stadt ist gesäumt mit schönen Kanälen voll mit Booten (auch einige nette Hausboote). Außerdem kamen wir auch bei einem Foodmarkt vorbei, auf dem wir uns vegane Burger gegönnt haben 🍔.😊.

    Köpenhamn

    July 12, 2016 in Denmark

    Nu är vi i ett annat land. Ett land med skönare tåg, bättre WiFi och öl på Pressbyrån. Det kallas för Danmark har jag hört.

    Das Königliche Dänische Zeughausmuseum (dän.: Tøjhusmuseet) ist ein Museum für historische Waffen in Kopenhagen.

    Das Zeughausmuseum erhielt seinen Namen nach dem Gebäude, in dem es beheimatet ist, dem Königlichen Zeughaus in Kopenhagen. Es wurde in den Jahren 1598–1604 von König Christian IV. errichtet. Ursprünglich diente es ausschließlich als Arsenal der dänischen Armee, doch bereits seit der Regierungszeit Friedrichs III. wurden im Zeughaus auch Trophäen gelagert sowie Waffen gesammelt, die ungewöhnlich, interessant oder auf andere Weise bemerkenswert waren.Read more

    Vom Zoo aus haben wir uns mit dem Bus zurück auf den Weg in die Stadt gemacht und beschlossen noch in das königlich dänische Zeughausmuseum zu gehen, quasi ein Kriegsmuseum.
