This post is the continuation of our 3 days in Denmark celebrating my birthday . We spent 1 day enjoying the panoramic views at white chalk cliffs surrounded by the stunning scenery in Møns Klint and the next 2 days passed by discovering the city of Copenhagen. It is a city that is so easy to explore on foot. I’m so excited to share with you our Copenhagen Travel Diary below 🙂
Day 1 : City Hall – Strøget – Rundetaarn – Rosenborg Castle – The Little Mermaid – Gefion Fountain – Amalienborg Palace – Frederik’s Church – Nyhavn
We started exploring Copenhagen from City Hall. We didn’t go inside but it looked like a nice splendid building from outside. We could see many tourists starting their walking tours from this square.
Next we walked through Strøget which is a nice long shopping street from Central Station to Nyhavn. You would love it, if you love high street shopping . You could shop at stores like BOSS or Valentino. This street is also famous for the LEGO store.
Next we passed though Rundetaarn or The Round Tower which was once famous for its height and used to soar above any other buildings nearby. You can get the whole view of Copenhagen city from this tower.
Our next stop was Rosenborg Castle where I got to make some pretty good outfit pictures in the garden 😀 . We visited the castle from outside and enjoyed the walk through the pretty gardens.
Later we made it to the famous Little Mermaid . Don’t expect a giant statue of the mermaid here ( she’s supposed to be little 🙂 ) . The statue is based on a fairy tale by a Danish author. You would love to read the story here 🙂 .
We spent some time enjoying the view at the harbor and later reached Gefion Fountain which is rather big and impressive fountain.
Next we went to Amalienborg Palace which is where the the royal family lives. You can see the changing of guards here which happens very often. We also got a glimpse of Frederik’s Church here which is famous for its beautiful dome. Our day came to an end at Nyhavn which reminded of my very own Amsterdam to me. Nyhavn was the highlight of our day. Beautiful colored houses, busy streets, numerous restaurants. It is so picturesque that you ought to take some pretty pictures before leaving.
Day 2 – Christiansborg Palace – Church of Our Saviour -Freetown Christiania -Harbour- And Canal Tours, Nyhavn
We started our day 2 with Christiansborg Palace. I specially loved the Royal Stables at the palace. I got to touch and caress so many horses that I was happy already 🙂
Next we walked to the beautiful Church of Our Saviour which impressed me with enormous statues and carved wooden organ .
We later spent most of our time at Freetown Christiania . If you’re into Hippie commune then you shouldn’t miss the self-governing town of Christiania. The town is filled with graffiti and grit. It looked fascinating yet post apocalyptic. You even have a 24hr supply of weed here 🙂 .
After spending quite some time here admiring the hippie culture yet questioning some things, we made our way to Nyhavn and took a 1hr Canal tour. The Canal tour was the perfect way to end our trip. We revisited many sites and witnessed the ones we couldn’t see before. I would strongly suggest taking a canal tour if you want to get to know about Copenhagen better in a short span of time.
We had a great time exploring this beautiful multi cultural city. Have you visited Copenhagen? What did you like about it? Let me know in the comments below 🙂 . Thank you so much for reading. 🙂
