Last August my mom and I went to Denmark and we fell in love! Our first stop was in Copenhagen, we had 2 full days to explore. The first day that we got there we walked around Nyhavn, and as you can tell I took a million photos of the boats and the buildings! I loved it there so much! Everything was so picture perfect! We had dinner at Skipperkroen, and it was the most amazing food, we practically licked our plates clean! All of the food that we ate in Denmark was so fresh and healthy. The restaurants along the water were perfect for relaxing and people watching. We even went back to Nyhavn to photograph at sunrise so we could get more shots without people. I have never been a morning person, but to photograph busy touristy places it is the only way to go, and I think the mornings are growing on me…. when I am on vacation! We loved watching people get ready for their day to begin and prep their shops and restaurants for another busy day.
One of our favorite things to shop for was home decor and kitchen items in Denmark, I love how simple and functional everything is! I was even almost tempted to change my living style to be a minimalist but then I wanted to buy one of everything there and I knew I would never make it to that point. Even the shops at the airports had the best dishes and home items, and if you know me I have a weakness for dishes! Just be prepared to spend a lot on them!
Things we did:
Nyhavn: This was one of our favorite areas to walk around in, and the restaurants were amazing!
Rundetaarn: This was one of my favorites, the walk up the Round Tower was so cool! And I always love getting to the top to get a good view of the city!
Tivoli Gardens: We were amazed by all of the pretty flowers here. There were tons of great restaurant options too. If you are traveling with children there are a lot of rides and games for kids.
Church of Our Lady: I loved seeing the statues of the resurrected Christ and his disciples, there was such a peaceful feeling there. The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints created replicas after the statues by Bertel Thorvaldsen
Danish Museum of Art & Design: We loved looking at all of the things that were made in Denmark and loved seeing all of the amazing chair designs!
Rosenborg Castle: The gardens in the area were so fun to walk around in.
The Little Mermaid: I always enjoy walking along the water, and this was a perfect area to explore.
Dinner at Skipperkroen was so amazing! I am sure all of the restaurants along the water were amazing we chose this one because the building and the sign were cute!
They had the cutest little restaurants here! I am obsessed with this Greenhouse! I need one for my dinner parties!
