We arrived mid morning and dropped our bags at our hotel in trendy Vesterbro. I had picked the hotel based on the hygge factor and certainly wasn’t disappointed! We had a gorgeous four-poster bed in our room and there were candles, cosy throws and cuddle seats galore
We had arranged to meet friends in Christiania so decided to find our way there on foot and take in the sights and get our bearings. Freetown Christiania is a fascinating place with cafes, street art and interesting characters! Photography is banned in certain areas of Christiania especially the infamous ‘Pusher Street’ so you will just have to take my word for it being worth a trip! Next we headed to Paper island for street food and great view across to Nyhavn Harbour and the Opera House
After a yummy breakfast we headed to the Design Museum. It was chair heaven! The Danish truly are the masters of design. Next was a Canal tour from Nyhavn, we didn’t quite escape the rain but the sights were beautiful especially the coloured buildings in the harbour. Then we decided to do more sightseeing, this time from the top of the Round Tower. We ended the day with pizza and cocktails, perfect!
We saved an evening trip to Tivoli gardens for today as it was our wedding anniversary. The twinkly lights and fairytale feel made it an ideal place for a special occasion. We had a blast on the rides especially the Star Flyer. Although slightly terrifying at 80 metres high!
Earlier in the day we had wandered around the shopping area and through the gardens at the Rosenborg Slot
Before heading to the airport we had a walk around Frederiksberg Park and a tour of the Carlsberg museum. It was a wonderful and busy few days and we will certainly be back for more scandi adventures!
