Copenhagen map from our August trip
Combo late lunch and early dinner on one of the squares along Europe’s first pedestrian street
DKK 200 ~ $35 nacho plate for two (with tzatziki and olives alongside the “salsa, guacamole,” jalapeños and sour cream on the side)
One burger would have been, wait for it, DKK160 ~ $28.
Even at these prices, you had to go inside to order and carry your drinks to the table.
Fun little hour long boat cruise; here is the back of the Little Mermaid
Krongborg castle (think Shakespeare’s Hamlet) an hour north, overlooking the 2 mile wide straight (Sweden on the other side) that is the entrance to the Baltic Sea, from which Denmark made a fortune on ship duties for over 400 years, until an American boat refused in mid 19th century:
Grand ballroom, 72x12m:
Statue of Holger Danske in the casement (basement of sorts)
Side street in the cute town of Helsingør next to the castle (the long pedestrian streets we’re almost deserted after 6pm)
Susan found a huge cat to play with:
The one ride we took (DKK75 ~ $14pp, though an all day ride pass would be DKK 199 ~ $34) for a nice swing ride with view.
Just inside the main entrance: an amusement park with trees and lanterns.
Funky statue of a bull defeating a sea monster, in front of the grand city hall.
Insignia on the Round Tower.
Church spires peek up everywhere
Will be blogging with photos…
