Culture/Sightseeing

We all remember the song “Wonderful, Wonderful Copenhagen” – and it is! Apparently, it is the happiest city in the world and I can undrrstand why. We travelled there in July and the weather was pleasantly warm. Most locals get about the city via cycles, and for pleasure, they use the canals.

The Tivoli Gardens amusement park in the centre is very popular, but we did not go in as there was so much more to see and do. The centre of the city is surrounded by canals and there are some beautiful and grand old buildings. Travelling around is easy using a City Pass – this takes you to and from the airport plus unlimited travel on buses, trains and the metro. People of our age always want to know where the most convenient toilets are when sightseeing, and we found that the Metro station at Kongens Nytorv led directly into the Magasin du Nord department store! Here you can find some nice clean facilities and the store itself is a pleasant place to browse. On the waterfront is the modern building of Det Kongelige Bibliotek (library) known as the Black Diamond. Here we enjoyed looking at the exhibition of Lee Miller the surrealist lady photographer. There were some great views from the building itself. Within the shopping area there is also the Rundetaam the 17th century observation tower. There is a wide spiral path, which takes you up to the top with outstanding views – but we declined to take it!

Things are not cheap in Denmark and we found that the best value place for stopping off for a sit down, a coffee and to do some people watching, is a branch of Expresso House, of which there are a number dotted around the city. For an evening meal there are a variety of places to eat and drink – some more “trendy” than others.

Copenhagen city is well worth a visit and my lasting impression is of the friendliest people.
