Day Trip to Copenhagen

where to buy lasix online “If Copenhagen were a person, that person would be generous, beautiful, elderly, but with a flair. A human being that has certain propensities for quarrelling, filled with imagination and appetite for the new and with respect for the old – somebody who takes good care of things and people.”

Copenhagen - City of Spires

One day in Copenhagen, these are the places to visit:

  •     Ny Carlsberg Glyptotek 
  •     National Museum of Denmark
  •     The Christiansborg Palace
  •     Nyhavn (Pronounced as “Ny-Heaven”) {Say “Ny” as you say “my”}
  •     Amalienborg Palace & Frederik’s Church
  •     Den Lille Havfrue (The Little Mermaid)

People call it the Bike capital of the world, the City of beautiful towers (for its medieval and Renaissance architecture) and Kongens Village.

I call it Love.

Copenhagen, which sits on the coastal islands of Zealand and Amager in Denmark is without any doubt one of the most peaceful countries you will ever visit in your lifetime.

The Place is good.  The People are great. The Architecture
AND THE BEER IS FANTASTIC !!!!!!!!

Yes, the hometown of the Carlsberg Beer Group is a pretty famous tourist-ey city. Around 55 % of Europe drinks Carlsberg. Haven’t you seen that famous ad that goes this way.

“If Carlsberg did meeting rooms, they would probably be best in the world.”
If Carlsberg did meeting rooms, they would probably be best in the world.

Now, I am going to tell you what to do or which places to visit in Copenhagen if you are there for just one day.

A little heads-up. If you are a fitness freak kind of a person looking for some extra adventure along the trip, you might as well opt in to travel around Copenhagen on a bike, after all, it’s the bike capital of the world. Its real fun!

  •   Visit the Ny Carlsberg Glyptotek

Start your day by visiting the Ny Carlsberg Glyptotek which is an art museum having some extravagant personal collections of Carl Jacobsen, the son of the founder of the Carlsberg Breweries. It will be the first stop if you go by main road towards the city center or the Kobenhavn Central Train Station. It comes under the City Hall area which can also be paid a visit. It’s all good architecture so you are not going to get a hard time clicking some Instagram-Worthy pictures. :p

While you will be paddling around the city, you will come across some great wonders of the modern and old architecture. Copenhagen is famous for it. Frankly, I just loved biking around the city. Seeing good and different places makes me happy.

  • Visit the National Museum of Denmark

Then you can pay a quick visit to the National Museum of Denmark, which is Denmark’s largest museum of cultural history comprising the history of Danish foreign cultures. This museum is almost 200 years old.  

  • Visit The Christiansborg Palace

The next stop has got to be on the tiny island of Slotsholmen which is basically inside the city. Yes, an island in the middle of the city. Crazy right? Even though it’s a small one, but, it’s fun.

The Christiansborg Palace, which comprises of the Danish ParliamentThe Supreme Court and the Ministry of State. 

Fun Fact: The Christiansborg Palace is supposed to be the place where it all started 850 years ago. Yes, 850 YEARS. You heard that correct. In 1167, a fortress was erected on the location of it. Since then, this event has come to be viewed as the official “birth” of Copenhagen as we know it – and the idea behind the city’s 850th birthday in 2017.

Art lovers could also pay a visit to Thorvaldsens Museum which is located on this very island.

Tiny ME in front of Thorvaldsens Museum. (you wouldn’t even come to know that you are on an island, its that small and near to the main land.)

The entry fee for The Ruins and for the Royal Kitchen, etc are different so it’s better to buy a combined ticket to enter for 150 DKK (20$ or so). The entry for children is free.

There is also a Danish Jewish Museum on that same island but I think you can skip that. the history is better explained in various other Jewish Museums around the world. I really love the one in Washington D.C.  

 

TIP: If you are history lover and you just wanna walk on the paths where some of the great historians or kings or princesses have walked on, put your GPS Coordinates to Gammeltorv which dates to sometime during the 13th century.

Gammeltorv (literally ‘Old Square’ in English) certainly lives up to its name as it is the oldest square in the city.

  • Visit Nyhavn (Pronounced as “Ny-Heaven”) {Say “Ny” as you say “my”}

I hear some voice. Wait! It’s my stomach calling.

It time for some brunch/Lunch on the most photographed street of Denmark, Nyhavn. You must have seen many photos of Copenhagen or basically Europe with all those colorful houses alongside the river and the boats in front of them. Well, Its Nyhavn. In some cases, it could also be Amsterdam. 😛

The Famous Nyhavn

So Nyhavn, undoubtedly has the best food in town. It has everything,

Varieties 

Cost friendly

Costly 

Cuisines 

Boats 

Colors 

Ambience and what not. 

All these combinations give you the best eating experience in the entire city. Also, probably in the entire country. Even though your pockets are not gonna like it that much but trust me, your wives and children will.

😛

There were so many things I wanted to try there but as they say Stomach is full, but not policy. Therefore, I couldn’t eat more after one-point ☹. So, I wrapped up and continued my exciting day ahead.

But I hope you have a giant appetite and some may also have deep pockets. So, it is highly recommended to eat here. Almost, all the restaurants serve great food.

You could also come here at night for dinner. They have great lightening scenes during dark. You folks would love it.

The most photographed place in Copenhagen

There is a restaurant by the name Pizzeria which serves some great variety of Pizzas. The place is little hard to find on Nyhavn.  If you are on the restaurant-side of the river and al the restaurants are on your left, you walk and take the first left. It’s an underground restaurant made in a basement. They are not costly, and the taste of their Pizza is amazing!!!

  • Visit the Amalienborg Palace & Frederik’s Church
HOW WOULD YOU FEEL IF YOU COULD JUST HAVE A LOOK INSIDE PRINCE OF DENMARK’S HOME? AMAZING RIGHT?
Well You cannot. LOL!! 

But you can visit that area where lies Amalienborg, the home of Danish Royal Family. My best experience here was to copy the Royal Guards, how they march and how they walk and how they wouldn’t even laugh at your lamest jokes.

Their funny looking hat and the REAL-GUNS. :D. This area with four different buildings on each side are going to look amazing in your photos. I will share with you people a B&W version of the picture I clicked.

As you can see people are also using Hoverboard to see places. I think that’s a cool way to see places. A must try I feel.

The good thing is that you can atleast visit the museum here and get to know about Danish Royal Family’s history. You can hire a guide there which will prove to be very fruitful for you if you are interested in Danish history. I, who always used to fail in history also loved it :D.

 

Just in front of the Amalienborg Palace, is the Frederik’s Church which is famous for its rococo architecture. You might have heard about it as The Marble Church. It was closed due to something when I was in Copenhagen (sad right?) but if you do get the chance, certainly pay a visit inside. Then, let me also know how it was. I will go there someday <3.

I have this audacity of not leaving a single attraction in the city. You never know what may strike your heart <3.

Frederik’s Church
  • Visit Den Lille Havfrue (The Little Mermaid)

Now The Little Mermaid!

Well, this place and this statue wouldn’t eat too much of your time. You can spend 10 minutes here MAXIMUM. But you would wanna spend a nice amount of time at the park where The Little Mermaid is located. It’s called the Langeline Park.

The Little Mermaid

It has many little little attractions to see like the Gefion Fountain and St Alban’s Church and the Prinsesse Marie(another famous statue). All these attractions start with the Churchill Park.

Gefion Fountain
St Alban’s Church

As soon as you will cross the Fountain, on you right hand side you will see a sea-side restaurant names Toldboden. You must try this if you have time which probably you will. If not, atleast try the cocktails.

 

FACT: They always have super-sexy cars parked around them all day. Certainly not a bad way to attract customers.

Outside of Toldboden.

Apparently, our day has come to an end but the night has just begun  :p.

To all the Wise Gamblers out there, Casino Copenhagen is the place for you to reimburse your trip or double the expenditure. It all depends on you. Obviously I wouldn’t want you folks to lose all their money but a little risk in life is always worth remembering. This Casino is a huge one. I wish you a rich night! :p .

Farvel Danmark!
