THE COPENHAGEN REFLECTION - DAY 2
The second (and last) day of my weekend in Copenhagen turned out to be much more relaxed. As shops across mainland Europe are generally shut on Sundays (of course there is exceptions), I instead decided to spend my day doing more culture and sightseeing based activities.
So off I went, first for a filling breakfast of porridge at Grød - although I have to admit that I actually ended up having a Kanelbolle (cinnamon bun) because, let’s admit it, who wants to be healthy when you’re on a holiday! Breakfast was followed by a coffee at Coffee Collective, which had been recommended to me by a friend and well worth the visit!
Getting on the Metro was so much fun, you can sit in the front and see the train moving through the tunnel! While initially the plan was to visit the Church of our Saviour (or Vor Frelser Kirke in Danish) in Christianshavn and to clilmb to the top, it was unfortunately shut in the winter, so I went for a nice walk through Christiania and then back to the city along the canal and past the Danish Architecture Centre.
After a lot of walking and a quick take-away lunch from a bakery I decided to hop on a canal boat to do a thorough historic tour of Copenhagen. All the walking the previous day had taken its toll and so I was glad to put my feet up and let someone tell me about the city’s history for a while.
The canal tour was followed by *accidentally* watching the change of the guards in town and a trip to the National Museum, Denmark’s largest museum of cultural history. Maybe it was due to the lack of sleep or the fact my brain just couldn’t take in any more impressions, but I wasn’t all that impressed by it…
As my flight back was that same evening I did not want to be rushed so, instead of going out for dinner somewhere in town, left for the airport quite early and spent my last hours there. After quickly grabbing some duty-free goodies, I was up in the air and back on my way to Berlin again.
Copenhagen, I will be back - and this time with lots more time!
