    Hello Copenhagen, Denmark!

    July 14, 2017 in Denmark

    Left Croatia this morning to fly to Denmark. Copenhagen is so much cooler!! Although raining at the moment. First glimpses of 'Wonderful, Wonderful Copenhagen'. Hans Christian Anderson. Tivoli Gardens, what seems like thousands of bikes everywhere, but still to catch up with Princess Mary! Nearly 9.00 at night and still very light. Major sightseeing to start tomorrow! Evie- another country for your pin board.Read more

    Copenhagen - Church of Our Saviour

    July 17, 2017 in Denmark

    Headed off today with a mission for our last day in Copenhagen - climb the 400 steps to the top of the Church of Our Saviour. The last 150 stairs are on the outside and offer the best views of Copenhagen. Mission accomplished! The church is also noted for its carillon which is the largest in Northern Europe and plays melodies every hour.Read more

    Copenhagen - Tivoli Gardens

    July 17, 2017 in Denmark

    We had also saved the last day for our visit to Tivoli Gardens, Copenhagen's famous amusement park and garden. It is beautiful, well designed and has a great atmosphere. Although we didn't go on the rides it was a lot of fun watching others flying to dizzying heights or upside down. The gardens are such a pleasure to look at and be in, especially on a beautiful sunny day as it was today.Read more

    July 15, 2017 in Denmark

    A very full day in Copenhagen on a beautiful sunny day. We did the full circuit on the Hop on Hop off bus (yes we were those tourists who never got off)! On the second round however we got off and did a great boat tour of the canals. Then called in to say hello to The Little Mermaid - not looking too bad for having lost her head twice, her arm once, blown off the rock once and painted red once!! Poor girl. We spent the rest of the day and night wandering around enjoying everything, which included a jazz festival with great music in the Nyhavn district. Fantastic spot to sit and have a drink and that's what we did.Read more

  • Day22

    This afternoon Anita took us to the Tivoli Gardens in Copenhagen via the canal boat and the train to Central station. We found the Tivoli Gardens to be a mixture of well tended gardens and a theme park. Hence there were lots of people enjoying the attraction including young children, teenagers, families and also older adults.
    We found an Indian section, a Chinese area, animals including six varieties of chickens, a lake with water feature as well as many rides which were well patronised.
    When we left the Tivoli Gardens we found the Town Hall square which had a statue of Hans Christian Anderson.
    To complete the afternoon we took the canal boat to the other end of the canal and saw many new apartment buildings some of which were still being constructed.
    This is the last Blog everyone as we leave Copenhagen tomorrow morning for Melbourne. Has been a great three weeks, and thank you for reading all my Blogs. Cheers. Margaret.

    July 9 in Denmark

    Today was spent travelling. We started off at Kirkenes which is about 70 deg Latitude having seen Finn Whales in the water just before the Polarlys docked. Travelling in the bus to the Kirkenes airport we saw some reindeer grazing. Kirkenes was very surprising having granite hills but also stretches of water near the airport. Thankfully they had levelled the ground for the airport.
    Overnight Anita and Anna stayed up late enough to check that the midnight sun didn't fall below the horizon at midnight. They took lots of photos to prove this.
    From Kirkenes we flew to Oslo the capital of Norway. At Oslo we said farewell to Anna as she was flying back to Gatwick as she had work commitments. From Oslo we flew to Copenhagen as we had not been there before. We were lucky enough to be able to stay in Paul's apartment in Copenhagen which is about 1 km from the centre of Copenhagen and on the 8th floor of a converted silo. The number of apartments in Copenhagen is incredible as shown from a few photos taken. The main canal is shown in two of these photos. The other interesting aspect is that land is being steadily reclaimed from the sea to build these apartments on.

    Copenhagen via the Canal

    July 10 in Denmark

    This morning we purchased a 48 hour travel pass which covers the canal boats, bus and train travel. We only used the canal boats today, but saw a lot of different areas in Copenhagen.
    Our first ferry trip was to see the little Mermaid which is quite small. We noticed that there was at least three large cruise ships in Copenhagen including the Queen Victoria. Very close to this area we came across a military complex which was surrounded by a moat, and which had a large windmill nearby. One of the impressive buildings in this area was built in 1725.
    The architecture of Copenhagen is a mixture of the very old and the very modern. In the afternoon we visited Christianshavn and Nyhavn, the latter being a very touristy area. The brightly painted buildings, the large number of boats moored in the canal, the huge crowds eating outdoors all contributed to the atmosphere. Anita said that Hans Chrstian Anderson lived in this street for 20 years.
    There are many dedicated bike lanes in Copenhagen with different types of bikes such as children being carried in front of the bikes at ground level in what could be termed baskets. The number of canals is also surprising as well as the number of boats, some of which are obviously lived on.

    Historic Copenhagen

    July 11 in Denmark

    This morning we took the canal boat to Slotsholmen which is the seat of Denmark's national government and an area where there are many historical buildings. Some of these buildings include the Supreme Court, the Royal reception rooms, the Parliament and the prime minister's office. There is also the original Denmark stock exchange located in this area.
    Some of the buildings were extremely large and hard to photograph. However there were no cracks observed in the buildings.
    The original library houses many thousands of Denmark's historical items as well as books. The original library is integrated into a new modern section which fronts the canal. There is also a beautiful garden at the side which we walked around.
