    Copenhagen Favorites

    The Isted Lion is a Danish war monument originally intended as a monument of the Danish victory over Schleswig-Holstein in the Battle of Isted (Idstedt) on July 25, 1850 — at its time the largest battle in Scandinavian history. The Danish sculptor Herman Wilhelm Bissen traveled to Paris to study an actual lion in the Jardin des Plantes. He...

  • Currency Issues

    Copenhagen Favorites

    Denmark is a EU COUNTRY, BUT IT USES THE DANISH KRONER, not the euro. When you arrive at the Airport it is easy to get Kroners from the ATM machines and money exchange. Foreign exchange is available from the Danske Bank located in the Transit Area of Terminal 2 and before security check points. Nordea located in Transit Area of Terminal 2 and...

  • Walking

    Copenhagen Favorites

    If you have a spare weekend, Copenhagen would make a nice trip. A tour of the city includes usually bus tour, photo stops at a couple of scenic areas of the city, a boat ride around the harbor and canals. All visitors to Copenhagen eventually make their way to Radhuspladsen, which is a lively square, full of street entertainers at all times of day...

    Every day we walked past the Danish Head post office. This was all the mail comes, so it was a very busy place! The building is old and nice, so take a look about at the nice carvings of Horses, Lions and the Crown. It is located at Tietgensgade 37. Post offices are in every suburb and you can buy stamps in kiosks and department stores. The mail...

  • Food.

    Copenhagen Favorites

    In Copenhagen airport they have opened a traditional danish hot dog stand, so while you are waiting for your luggage upon arrival you do not need to bore yourself silly but can start embracing danish culture right away with danish hot dogs and beer. I really like this initiative as the luggage arrival hall is very often the most boring place in an...

  • Canals and harbour

    Copenhagen Favorites

    When we left the harbor on the ship, I went out on the promenade deck to take photos of whatever aids to navigation I could see. There are three possible lighthouses to be seen: Stubben (Frihavn Nordmole) This is an active lighthouse; A round tower with lantern and gallery at an altitude of 23 fet, painted green. The light flashes green. It is...

  • Strøget & shopping

    Copenhagen Favorites

    Very good people watching AND cakes can be had where Amagertorv meets Højbro Plads along the Strøget pedestrian street. Sure, it is where everyone passes up and down Strøget and therefore crowded (watch out for pickpockets - especially in connection with street performances!) but it does have some of Copenhagen's most popular cafes: the Europa and...

  • Thoughts about Copenhagen

    Copenhagen Favorites

    A few impressions about Copenhagen: Definitely a coffee culture. Difficult to get a good cup of tea made the English way! Many hotels have free wi-fi for guests. Most definitely expensive for food and drink. Reasonable prices for a meal is anything under 150 dkk per person. Under 100 is better. Many bars and cafes want you to pay for the food...

  • Castles and the royal family

    Copenhagen Favorites

    One of many Fondest memories was getting lost in Hamlet's Castle and being mistaken for residents by people taking a tour. We walked over the moat on a solid wooden bridge and entered the court yard of Kronborg Slot. Being the adventurous type (Read: we were too cheap to pay the price of the tour.) we opted out of the formal tour and wandered...

  • Churches

    Copenhagen Favorites

    There are a lot of interesting steeples and towers in Copenhagen. Sometimes it was hard to tell if they were religious or secular. The Town Hall has a tall tower and so does the railroad station. Sometimes hotels have towers on them. The Unicorn Church steeple (photo 5) is a very skinny steeple with inter-twined dragon tails. The Church of St....

    We are blessed in Portugal by a bright sun during almost all the year. This makes us surprised by the ingenious solutions found in the north to... catch the sun. The advanced windows and balconies may be common to locals, but they call our attraction, and enhance the importance of our lucky weather.

  • Breweries/Beer

    Copenhagen Favorites

    Danish Beer!! Sorry the picture is so dark, the day was overcast but I was surprised to see such a huge bottle of Carlsberg beer along the road we were driving one. This is definitely not "subliminal" advertising here. I personally don't drink beer but know that Carlsberg is sold around the world and is a favorite in my own state of...

    This is a large fountain located in Langelinie Park near one of the cruise ship docks. It is next to Kastellet and is the largest monument in Copenhagen. The fountain was donated to the city of Copenhagen by the Carlsberg Foundation on the occasion of the brewery’s 50-year anniversary. It was originally supposed to be located in the main town...

    While in Copenhagen I got the chance to meet Vt'er Claus for a few beers in O'leary's Sports bar with Pod. What better place than that to discuss the finer points on football and to gossip on fellow VT'er members. (hehe)

    When we got into Tivoli, we went first on the Ferris Wheel. We went around twice (which we could do because it was rainy and no one was waiting) because I wanted to have a second chance to take pictures of the town.

  • H. C. Andersen

    Copenhagen Favorites

    I learnt the most beautiful story about the amazing paper cuts H.C. Andersen was making one freezing winter night in Northern Norway, smoking Danish apple falvoured tabacco and eating biscuits dipped in hot chocolate. I didn't mean to see his grave, but one summer sunny day I happened to walk past the cemetery and decided to walk in. I was...

  • Copenhagen Card

    Copenhagen Favorites

    The Copenhagen Card isn't a cheap card, but then, attractions and things to do in Copenhagen aren't cheap either. What I did, was had a look at the list at what was included [there is heaps], and ticked off what we wanted to see. Next the time limit, and I chose the 72 hour ticket for best value, and for giving us enough time to see things. We...

    The brewer Carl Jacobsen visited the show of the Ballett "The Little Mermaid" at the Royal Theatre in 1909. One of the dancers, Ellen Price, impressed him a lot. After the show Jacobsen asked her whether she would pose for a sculptor. She was fascinated and agreed. The sculptor was Edvard Erichsens. When Ellen Price found out that she should pose...

    the Round Tower was built in 1637-1642. Its measuring 268m (880 ft.) and winding itself seven times around the hollow core of the tower. The top of the tower offers great views over the city's roofs. For the panoramic view of the city, climb the spiral ramp (no steps) leading up to the top of this tower. There is the story that Peter the Great,...

    Kongens Have (the kings garden) is one of the favorite places to hang out for the people of Copenhagen if it´s sunny. It´s a pleasant park situated right in the center of Copenhagen and in the middle of the park you have one of the nicest castles in Copenhagen, Rosenborg. A very nice park for a picknik, a game of football or just some...

    My daughter-in-law told my granddaughter that there wouldn't be graffiti or vandalism in European cities, and my granddaughter was disappointed to find that this was not so. So she took a lot of pictures of what she thought was vandalism - she included graffiti in this.
