3,5 hours in Copenhagen (with photos)

Seven hours between landing in Copenhagen, the capital of Denmark, and boarding on another plane to take me to London. I had never visited Denmark before so I decided to take the train to the city centre (the journey took less than 15 minutes!), walk through town to see the Little Mermaid statue located in the harbour on the other side of the city and then walk back and have a late lunch before returning to the airport. I was left with approximately 3,5 hours to spend in the city itself. 

The day was not ideal for taking photos due to the clouds and the rain but got a couple of nice pictures. Enjoy :) 



12:25 Outside of Amalienborg, the King's residence.

12:40 Look! I found Churchill! The Gefion Fountain in the background. 

12:45 Lovely landscape by the harbour.

12:50 The harbour.

There it is! The Little Mermaid.

Daily portion of animal photography.

Things to do while waiting for a connective flight:
Get a Japanese tourist to take a photo of you next to a famous statue.

13:15 Bikes everywhere! I think they may have missed the sign...

13:20 Statement.

13:25 I love all different kinds of mailboxes!
I ended up eating in a lovely restaurant near the train station. The waitress recommended a dish which she referred to as "chicken salad" but it turned out to be a salad with a bowl on the side filled with a sort of chicken stuffing and a bread basket. The stuffing was lovely though, and went really well with the bread! I drank a glass of the best homemade lemonade I have ever tasted. I would actually go back to Copenhagen just for another one of them even if the city had not been as gorgeous as it was and made me want to visit again.

  1. I haven't been in Copenhagen in years, but I loved it when I was there. Need to get back eventually...
