Copenhagen - February 2013
A city break to liven up the winter months. We had only ever changed
flights at the airport before, so this was our first proper visit to
Denmark. It's a wonderful country, and we must go back.
|A short walk from our hotel took us to Gammel Strand.
||Nyhavn is lovely - great for John's love of boats.
|Lots of boats in Nyhavn even in the winter.||We did tend to take refuge in a bar every now and again -
this was a lovely one in Nyhavn.
|A bridge between royal palces in Amalienborg Plads.
||Well you can't visit Copenhagen without visiting her, can you?
|The domes of the Alexandr Nevsky Church.||Bicycles near the main train station.
|Bicycles are all over the place in Copenhagen.||A nice little carving in the pub not far from our hotel that
we visited quite a few times - Søren's
Værtshus. Very friendly and cosy.
|Ah! Time for a nightcap. Back in the hotel after a long day
being a tourist.
||These people apparently give a blast on the horn when a virgin walks by. Apparently it's not heard very often ...|
|Another wonderful carving, this one in a bar (I think) where we went out to hear some live music.||Danish style in our hotel, Hotel
Twentyseven. We thought it was great.
Yes it was cold in February - my camera battery didn't like it! -
but the people
were friendly, the food and drink were great, the city is beautiful.
We'll be back sometime.
