Visiting the worlds oldest amusement park – Bakken, Copenhagen

By | July 8th, 2015|Denmark|

Located in the beautiful woodlands of Dyrehaven, just a short train ride away from central Copenhagen lies Bakken, the oldest amusement park in the world. Oddly, you don't find Bakken listed in too many Danish guidebooks as a 'must see' attraction, and in terms of amusement parks, Tivoli is probably seen by most visitors as [...]

The cost of 2 nights in Copenhagen, Denmark

By | July 2nd, 2015|Budget Travel, Denmark|

What is the cost of 2 nights in Copenhagen? Is Copenhagen an expensive city to visit? Yes ... and no. It is expensive to an extent, but equally there are a number of free/cheap things to see and do when in the Danish capital.  Hint, look over here --> Copenhagen – 10 Things to do on [...]

Views from the top of the Rundetårn (Round Tower) – Copenhagen

By | June 30th, 2015|Denmark|

Upon my first visit to Copenhagen I didn't really pay too much attention to the Rundetårn. I must have passed by it at least three or four times on my way to and from other locations within the city, but for some reason it never once crossed my mind to poke my head inside the [...]

Superkilen – The Copenhagen park made up of 108 objects from 60 different nations

By | June 23rd, 2015|Denmark|

Located in the Nørrebro district of Copenhagen lies Superkilen, a huge great public park, made up of 3 separate park type zones.  I touched on Superkilen very briefly last year in my 10 cheap things to do in Copenhagen post, but having just visited Copenhagen for a second time in 12 months, I thought I'd go [...]

A segway tour of Copenhagen

By | February 3rd, 2015|Denmark|

A segway tour of Copenhagen may seem a little strange when Copenhagen mainly seems to consist of bicycles, so many bicycles! And bike lanes, almost as wide as the roads, and with their own traffic signals, incredible! Copenhagen is definitely a city for transport by two wheels, but where 50% of all citizens commute by [...]

Copenhagen – 10 Things to do on the cheap / for free

By | November 5th, 2014|Budget Travel, Denmark|

A trip to Copenhagen can get expensive quickly.  Whilst flights from the UK are reasonable (Easyjet or BA), a couple of nights accommodation, food, drink and maybe spot of shopping on top of a few tours all adds up. However, with that said, like most cities if you search the backstreet's, look high and low, [...]

Copenghagen: A tour of the Carlsberg Brewery

By | October 6th, 2014|Denmark|

The Carlsberg brewery was my first stop on my inaugural visit to Copenhagen, and that was because .. I like beer! Probably more than I should owing to the history of diabetes in my family, but like most things in life moderate amounts is probably the key.  But if it brings you a little bit [...]

Mapped Instagram Photos from Copenhagen

Copenhagen, my reward for one seriously tough August (work wise), but I made it through the month and into September, yay me!  My reward for silly hours spent working with spreadsheets, contract documents, emails and databases ... a little trip to Denmark. I'm totally overcome by both relief and happiness right now. Copenhagen So to Denmark, [...]
