"Thursday 13th October 2006"
Left Dublin airport via an SAS flight to Copenhagen.
Never flew with this airline before, but would definitley use them again.
Arrive in Copenhagen airport and get a ticket for the train to bring us to the Centre of Copenhagen. Can purchase a ticket that will allow you on all public transport, but we prefer to walk around a city as you never what you will find off the beaten track.
Hotel (Comfort Hotel Europa - Colbjornsensgade 5-11) is just a 5 minute walk around the corner.
Settled in Hotel, 2 single rooms booked, quite basic, but comfortable enough to rest your bones after a day of touring around the city.
Went for a stroll to try and get our bearings, ended up getting a bit way leighed but managed to find our way back.
Went to a little pizzeria and stuffed our faces with pizzas and some Tuborg beers.
Found a little bar called the Londoner jut beside this pizzeria and had a few more beers.
"Friday 14th October 2006 - Night of Culture"
Every year in Copenhagen they have a night of culture, where most of the Museums and Galleries are open late and if you purchase a pass you get into most of them free or a very good discounted rate.
Ticket cost about €10.
Entices you to go and see museums and galleries that you might not be able to fit in , if on a short stay trip, but because they are open late its a great opportunity.
The city centre is very busy on this night as most of the local people come out for this evening as it is a big family night out.
"Saturday 15th October - Canal Trip -Little Mermaid"
You can hop a canal trip at loads of different spots around Copenhagen, you are brought around ans show some historic buildings and are given a good commentary about the areas - which are given in various different languages.
Part of our trip included a viewing of the infamouse Little Mermaid - to me it was a bit disappointing, I expected it to be much bigger.
