While I was on holiday in Sweden I was lucky enough to see Denmark a couple of times as well. On this particular day we drove into Copenhagen to do a bit of sight seeing. Copenhagen really is a beautiful city, and I would have loved to have spent more time there…
We parked in a funny car park in the central CBD (I think!), It was brick lain and complete with sculptured hills and trees for decoration. It had a ‘aesthetic for the sake of it’ vibe about it. I kinda liked it.
First order of business was a visit to the Carlsberg factory! This was at about 10am in the morning, and on an empty stomach the complimentary beer went down a treat…
Fun fact: The Carlsberg logo used to be a swastika… until it’s ‘original meaning was lost.’
The beautiful really starts along the waterfront. The mismatched & brightly colored houses, boats docked in the harbor, cobblestoned streets and the busy hustle and bustle are wonderful… the clear blue skies didn’t hurt either!
Lunch on the canal was amazing. It was devilishly warm and I got a little sunburnt. The shopping was brilliant, and if/when I go back I’d like to have more time for it. I hear that Copenhagen in particular is wonderful for vintage shopping.
Looking over these photos has me missing Scandinavia so much. I can’t wait to go back and my fingers are crossed for sometime within the next 1.5 – 2 years.
