    2 - Køebenhavn

    August 5, 2019 in Denmark ⋅ ⛅ 21 °C

    We really wanted to go clubbing Sunday night. But I didn’t really worked out. There were only a few clubs open and we didn’t liked those. So that’s our clubbing story haha.

    On Monday we had a full day (without any trains) in Copenhagen. We took the whole day just to walk and explore the city. we started off with a free walking tour through the city, it was a tour of 3 hours. Our tour guide told us so much about Copenhagen. About how it suffered two fires and that is why most of the old buildings aren’t there anymore. She also told us about politics, hygge, beer and much more. It was really interesting.

    After that we decided to go to the little mermaid but it was a bit disappointing. It was very small and outside of the city center. Also there where more tourist taking pictures in one place I have ever seen.

    Next was Nyhavn which is the famous canal with colourful houses either side. It's a pretty place and was quiet at that time of morning. I also stopped taking pictures of myself after this place.

    Then walked over to the royal palace...Read more

    København

    July 1, 2017 in Denmark ⋅ ⛅ 15 °C

    No brico adventure would be complete without the obligatory 1km+ trek to our hotel towing the luggage. Despite some concern about losing a wobbly suitcase wheel, we still proceeded to pull our luggage across the city's cobblestone sidewalks and streets from the train stop to First Hotel 27.

    After freshening up at the hotel, we stopped at a small cafe for espresso and a chocolate croissant. We continued our stroll down a pedestrian street full of food stalls and shops. From one of the squares, we ventured up to the top floor of a shopping center that offered lofty views of Copenhagen.

    Even with less than ideal weather, packed outdoor cafes line the streets, outfitted with blankets and heat lamps to keep patrons warm. These outdoor cafes create a laid back vibe all over town that we wish was more prevalent in the US. We stopped at a waterfront cafe/brewery that had several local beers on tap. We enjoyed watching small boats with picnic tables and passengers enjoying alcoholic beverages of their choice motor by.

    From there, we continued our walk to the Nyhavn canal. What was once an area full of bars and drunken sailors, Nyhavn is now one of the most popular places to visit in the city. Colorful houses and decades old sailboats line the canal, making it very picturesque and charming. It was also very touristy. So we found a restaurant at least 10 mins walk away from the crowds. Afterwards, we called it an early night even at 9 though the clouds had cleared and there was still plenty of daylight to be had.

    Kopenhagen - Tag 20

    July 4, 2019 in Denmark ⋅ ⛅ 15 °C

    heute Städtetour Kopenhagen. Bei Pisswetter. Morgen gehts heim. Dann wärs hier wieder schön... es gab hier die letzte Zeit nur einen Tag mit schlechtem Wetter - heute... ich sag da jetzt nix mehr dazu. 😢 na aber wir sinds ja gewöhnt, sind trotzdem Boot gefahren (mit Regenfolie bekleidet aufm offenen Kahn 🤨) und haben einiges abgelatscht. Aber is halt recht driste so 😔 und shoppen is irgendwie sinnbefreit wenn man nix transportieren kann uuund wenn meine liebe Begleitung eine Shoppingallergie hat 🤨
    jetzt graut mir davor nochmal den ganzen Krempel zu packen aber jetzt freu ich mich auch auf daheim. 😀

    EdT: hop on hop off is doch recht praktisch 😉

    Probably the best beer in the world

    September 5, 2017 in Denmark ⋅ ⛅ 17 °C

    Met someone on a walking tour of Copenhagen who lives in Bristol. Small world! Going for a beer with them later.
    Covered a lot of ground today - 13km.

    Copenhagen is the home of Carlsberg and it tastes so much better here.

    Was on the end of more Brexit jokes today - so I've now decided I'm going to say I'm Irish ha. A Texan got most of the stick today from everyone.

    Danish tour guide Magnus kept saying for us to have a Hygge (pronounced 'Hoogli') time whilst in Copenhagen. Loosely translated it means 'cosy'.
    He also said there is such fierce rivalry between Sweden and Denmark that in Ikea, everything has a Swedish name, except for the toilet brush and carpet which are Danish ha.

    The most famous landmark gets a lot of stick from the locals. They all say it is shit so i had to confirm this myself. It's a little mermaid statue. And it is quite shit ha!

    Went to a good viewpoint up in a tower today, everyone was picking out lovely cathedrals and great architecture. Me? I was scouting for the Parken Stadium, home of FC København. Found it.

    Off to Hamburg tomorrow.
