pre-birthday celebration for our littlest. my how time does fly!
just as colorful and vibrant as the pictures we had seen of nyhavn. the weather could not have been more perfect!
walking along the canal to the little mermaid was an adventure in itself. there is so much to see by just exploring on foot, copenhagen is a big bike town but even on bikes, you can’t take it all in like you can walking. now to find the most comfortable walking shoe…..
the little mermaid was larger than i had expected, just having been to brussels and seeing manneken pis 🙂 and reading how small the statue was. i was pleasantly surprised and the girls loved playing on the rocks around
we ran into this beautiful church, st alban’s next to kastellet and churchhillparken.
a quick train ride from copenhagen center and we were at bakken, the oldest amusement park in the world. it was worth the visit!
i try my best as i always do with these trips to capture the beauty and the energy of the city but of course, it’s almost impossible to capture every detail. there were too many photos to post so i did my best to get a variety. tivoli was a place not to miss if you are in copenhagen!
church of our saviour has one of the best views of the city, pretty much a 360-degree view. it was a long way up but worth it!
paper island is just a short walk from church of our saviour and on such a beautiful day it was a perfect spot for everyone to get their favorite type of food and enjoy the picnic tables out by the canal or indoors to take in the ambiance of the street food marketplace.
a canal cruise is a great way to see the sights from a different viewpoint. we were told by the tour guide bottom right hand side picture is where hans christian andersen lived when he was pursuing a career in acting before he became and author! fun trivia. the house is located in nyhavn area around the corner from the opera house.
