Do you sometimes get this feeling that going somewhere you wish you had at least a basic knowledge about what you will see there? Do you find searching through websites tedious and annoying? I do. This is why I will try to put together some facts about spots I have seen in Copenhagen.
When I left the metro, I wanted to find a city bike and ride to Rosenborg Palace. But it is well known that plans like to change, so of course the bike ride did not happen. Kongens Nytorv stop is located just a few steps from Nyhavn, a 17th-century Copenhagen waterfront. It was originally used as a port, which with time has grown from a fishermen spot into a busy entertainment center. You will find lots of restaurants, coffee shops, as well as a general great relaxing atmosphere. From there you can also jump onto a boat and for 40 Danish krones have an hour long canal tour.
To be honest I was not always excited about layovers. Hours of unnecessary waiting made me seek out direct flights or those with the shortest possible connection. When did my thinking change? Exactly last year, when my 12 hours layover in Vienna turned into quite an intensive sightseeing experience. After Vienna was London, Shanghai and Copenhagen, which is today’s topic.
