48 hours in Copenhagen
A road trip through Copenhagen is not something that we planned and were little apprehensive about it. Little did we know that it would turn out to be a very unique experience.
With 2 days in hand and no planned agenda in mind, we finally chalked out this into our plan.
CPH living – For a change we wanted to try a different kind of hotel so we decided to stay at a Floating Hotel called CPH Living. It’s a floating boat located in the center of the city, along the harbour with sound of water and seagulls to wake you up in the morning. This hotel has simple breakfast and also provides cycle for renting. Cycling around the city is most convenient.
Walking street – Strøget is an old shopping street with a mix of expensive shops, souvenir shops and local boutiques. You will find plenty of fast food outlets and also outdoor seating restaurants to relax and have a good meal. On a sunny day you will find many street musicians and tourists dancing around the lovely music.
Approximate Meal cost for 2 – $55.
Little mermaid statue – You must have heard of a fairy tale where a mermaid falls in love with a prince from land and gives up everything to become human to unit with him. This bronze statue depicting the mermaid, is displayed on a rock on a seaside and has been a major tourist attraction.
Visit Carlsberg – This brewery experience was a guided tour that took us around the brewery and present facts about Carlsberg beer and its history. We experienced beer tasting of Jacobsen India Pale Ale, Saaz blonde and brown ale and for our surprise there was a different flavor in each. There were 2 complementary beer with admission ticket and there was a kitchen with good food so we spent rest of the evening relaxing there. Keep in mind that there is a horse carriage ride which is available is from 12.30 to 14.30 only so don’t miss this.
Nyhavn – A 17th century waterfront with colorful walls and street lined up with cafes and restaurants. Best place to grab some beer and sausage and enjoy the street music.
