Following our adventures in Stockholm, we’ll be boarding the train and driving five hours through the Swedish countryside to Copenhagen.
This will be my first visit to the Danish capital and I’m excited. There’s just something about Scandinavia that I love, and I’m interested to see how Copenhagen fits into the Scandi/Nordic puzzle.
So, without further ado, here is my travel bucket list: Copenhagen.
Top Ten Things I’m Excited to See, Do and Eat:
Nyhavn (or New Harbour) is one of the most popular tourist attractions in the city. The colourful houses and restaurants that line the harbour are cheerful and quirky, and I hope we can take a little bit of time to see this iconic Danish sight.
We have very limited time in Copenhagen, so we’ll have to make the most of it. One of the best ways to get introduced to a city is by taking part in a tour, whether it’s bus, boat or on foot. Given that it’s summertime and Copenhagen is a relatively compact city, we’ll probably be taking part in a walking tour.
Øresund: The Bridge
Dave and I are pretty big fans of the Danish/Swedish TV series, The Bridge (well, to be honest, we’re pretty big fans of any Nordic noir show we can get access and subtitles to) in which the Øresund Bridge plays a large role. So we’re excited (well, at least I am) to not only get to see the bridge, but to cross it. Nerdy, I know.
Climb to the observation tower of Rundetårn
Continuing my Scaredy Kate Tour of Europe, I’d love to climb to the top of the tower as it apparently offers spectacular views of the city.
Walk Through Freetown Christiania
Freetown Christiania (or simply, Christiania) is a self-governing free town that was established on the site of a military barracks in Copenhagen in the early-1970s. Located just outside of the historic centre, I’d love to pop over and take a stroll down the main streets, just to see what it’s like.
In continuing our Herring Tour of Europe we hope to dine at Nyhavns Faergekro in Nyhavn, a restaurant which offers a herring buffet of ten different varieties of the fish. I’m not sure how I feel about the all-you-can-eat aspect of the buffet, but this definitely something we have to check out only because our Herring Tour of Europe just wouldn’t be complete without it!
Torvehallerne is a food hall which is home to dozens of different street food type stands. It sounds delicious and like something we can’t miss!
Eat at a pølsevogn (sausage wagon)Because, when in Copenhagen!
See the old houses along Amagergade
See the Little Mermaid
A trip to Copenhagen just wouldn’t be complete without seeing the iconic Little Mermaid statue. I’m not expecting much, but I know I’ll regret not going while we’re there.
Have I missed anything? What would you recommend I add to my list?
