Pre-Christmas trip to Copenhagen

We chose environmentally friendly trains on this year's trip to Denmark.

… Something that was both comfortable and social. In Copenhagen we stayed in a hostel in the center, with walking distance to most things. We started with a trip to the Royal Library, "The Black Diamond", and got a tour, a look into the archive and two other temporary exhibitions.

At Rosenborg Castle from 1606, we got both fun facts and a lot of history about Christian IV, Fredrik III, and the subsequent Christians and Fredriks. At Amalienborg we watched the change of guard with music and before we admired Scandinavia's largest dome with a span of 31 meters - inside the marble church.

Even though it rained during the boat trip, it was nice to experience the city from the water - and be surprised at how small "The Little Mermaid" really is. In Copenhagen, there are plenty of stalls at the Christmas markets, and it was no problem to get in the Christmas spirit even though the snow was missing.

At the Statens Museum for Kunst we should have had a whole day if we were to see everything. We only had two hours - but we made good use of them in return. A skilled guide showed us a good selection and the students were engaged and good at talking about art and how it affected us.

We also went on a tour through Christiania, one of the biggest tourist attractions in Copenhagen. Here there are many walls covered with colorful and artistic graffiti and paintings.

The last night we enjoyed ourselves at Tivoli - a Christmas paradise of light and atmosphere. After three days of walking, impressions and people, it was good to sink into the train seat and turn your nose north.
