After a happy first day wandering I spent my second day in Copenhagen ticking off some of the sites.
Even if you’re not a big fan of rides Tivoli Gardens is definitely a must to visit. It’s one of the oldest theme parks in the world dating back to 1843 and unlike modern theme parks is right in the town centre so in walking distance. I popped in just to have a look and ended up staying for hours.
The Rundetaarn also proved a cool photo op
before stopping at the Rosenborg Castle
And of course I had to go see The Little Mermaid
Christiania was next on my list – an area better known as the ‘green light district’. It is a hippy ‘freetown’ area where a blind eye is turned to drugs openly being sold on the street. Despite being a top tourist sight the atmosphere was not really up my street, but still fun for a few snaps.
Just round the corner from Christiania was the Dansk Arkitektur Center where I had an amazing brunch looking over the river before checking out the exhibitions – which are definitely worth a visit.
Then last stop to see Copenhagen from above I went up the Spire on ‘Church of our Saviour’ something I would not recommend if you are scared of heights as it’s pretty narrow up there!
In the distance I could see ‘The Bridge’ that connects Malmo in Sweden to Copenhagen.
