Today's post is the start of the things to see and do in each place we visited. I will give you information on our accommodation, the tours we did, things to see and any tips we picked up along the way. I thought it would be best to go chronological with the next few blog post; so I'm beginning where it all started - Copenhagen.
Copenhagen in two days...
We arrived in Copenhagen in the afternoon and after checking into our hotel
(Wakeup Copenhagen) and leaving our rucksacks behind we ventured out to see what the city had to offer.
The hotel was in a great location with Tivoli Gardens a short stroll around the corner. Tivoli is an amusement park with funfair rides and beautiful gardens. Entry was €15 per day but we decided not to go in. (Maybe next time)
We made the decision to get the Hop On Hop On Bus which cost €25 and stopped right outside our hotel. After listening to commentary about different buildings and places we hopped off at the Parliament Building and got a lift up to The Tower to see views of the city. I highly recommend doing this. There is a lift up so no steps to climb and the best thing is... It's FREE!
The best way to see a city is to get lost in it! And that's what we did following our trip to Parliament. We wandered round and came across a Jazz band outside a Museum. The atmosphere there was energetic and the music wasn't bad either! We then tried to find the much raved about Nyhavn and after about two hours searching we finally reached the pretty street with its colourful houses and boats on the waterfront. It is expensive in this area but I do recommend strolling through it to get a real sense of Danish culture. And again... It's FREE!
The second day we hop on the tour bus and went around the whole city listening to the commentary. It really is a great way to see everything in a short space of time.
We then stopped of at the infamous Little Mermaid Statue. Although it is HIGHLY overrated could you really say you've been to Copenhagen without seeing it? We got absolutely drenched too, taking the picture and running back to the bus in record time!
The weather picked up to be dry and slightly sunny so we went to Rosenborg Castle where we strolled through the park grounds, If the weather is any way nice I recommend coming here for a picnic in the park. It is really picturesque and the castle itself is beautiful outside.
After the castle we headed to the other side of the city to Amalienborg Palace. Unfortunately everything was closed by the time we arrived but even walking around the courtyard gives you an overview of the huge palace! We visited the Basilica beside the palace as it was starting to rain and it was something to do. Being honest, it's not something I would be too pushed to do but if you have time to kill go see it!
We then went back to the Main Square to grab some grub. Food can be expensive in Copenhagen so because we were on a budget we dined in McDonalds and Burger King the two days we were there! (So healthy).
Our train was at 10pm that evening so we strolled to the station with our rucksacks and grabbed the night train to Berlin.
In my opinion, two days in Copenhagen is more than enough to get everything done. The city is small enough that nothing is too far away from the other and with the bus tour you'll fly around it! It's definitely worth a visit!
Next weeks travel blog will be all things to do in Berlin! I've been to Berlin twice now so I can't wait to share all my tips with you!
