Can’t Wait To Go: Copenhagen

 

#CantWaitToGoCopenhagenNew series of posts entitled “Can’t wait to go:” where i dive into the location of our next planned adventure. The post will be followed up by how the trip goes and any tips or tricks for the future travellers. Todays topic! Copenhagen, Denmark.

With everything booked and around two months to go, I thought I would take the time to write about all the things I am looking forward to in the 5 day break to the beautiful city of Copenhagen, Denmark.

Firstly, the hotel. The First Hotel Mayfair, Copenhagen. Situated only Five minutes walk from Copenhagen Central station. Looks fantastic from the outset, a very smart interior and exterior with the rooms to match. With a rating of four on tripadvisor, it looked like we got ourselves a good little hotel for the trip.

Places were planning to visit

Tivoli Gardens, the most visited theme park in all of Scandinavia, and the 5th most visited theme park in Europe. The park hosts plenty of options for all the family, from the larger rollercoasters of “Rutschebanen” and “The Daemonen” to the kiddie rides like the “Dragonboats” and mini ferris wheel. Part of the park is set around a lake, and the most iconic view of the Orient across the lake at night gives me the feeling that i will never want to leave this park!

Photo of Tivoli Gardens was taken by my brother on his recent trip last winter. Doesn’t it just look fantastic?

Nyhavn, a busy port side area with brightly coloured 17th/18th century townhouses. Another iconic sight in Copenhagen which is packed with bars, restaurants and shopping. What more could you want? Boat tours and eating by the quayside gives you plenty of photo opportunities and memories to take with you forever.

Papiroeen (paper island), home of some of Copenhagen’s best street food. Set up in a former paper factory, this vibrant location gets all the tourists and locals enjoying the evenings with great food and entertainment.

Den Bla Planet, northern Europe’s largest aquarium. Home to 20,000 animals and containing around 7,000,000 litres of water, split between five main sections and housed in an amazingly designed building.

Central Hotel and Cafe, the worlds smallest hotel and Copenhagen’s smallest coffee shop. Boasting only one!!! single room, and only five seats in the coffee shop! Absolutely crazy right? i cannot wait to get a photo to show everyone, and maybe even sit and have a drink!

And finally, The little mermaid statue. The iconic sight in Copenhagen, depicting a mermaid based on Hans Christian Andersen’s fairy tale of the same name. A must see for all Disney and fairy tale story fans.

I wish i could have posted more pictures, but all will be made up for after our trip! i hope you enjoyed the post and please check back for the results of the trip! Also? do we like the new blog footer?
