Maybe not that grand but it was a nice place to stay. Very close to the center of the city.
Out For a Ride
We saw lots of these tricycles transporting as many as three kids about town.
A very colorful (and large) movie theater complex.
If you have lots of bikes, you need lots of places to park them. Interesting that we saw very few bike locks. Or bike helmets for that matter.
This device counted the numbers of bikes that had passed by as a way to encourage even more riders.
This was an interesting, very peaceful courtyard just off a main shopping drag.
From our hotel window looking toward Hans Christian Anderson Boulevard. No idea what the monument in the middle of the road is.
There Be Dragons Here
Defending the city hall in Copenhagen.
The central train station in Copenhagen. Notice the time on the display. At 8:31, sunset was still a couple of hours away.
7-11 stores were on practically every block we walked down. While the products inside were different than you would find in a US store, the overall feeling was the same.
Looking down the main entry path into Tivioli Gardens.
Copenhagen's city hall is a huge structure dominating a large plaza that seemed to be a central gathering place for residents and tourists alike.
Interesting building on the amusement park grounds.
Hans Christian Andersen
Standing next to the city hall in Copenhagen.
The temperature, in Celcius, of course, displayed up the corner of this building. Notice the potential for 20° below freezing.
Can you imagine a US company advertising their product as "probably" the best? Is this an example of Danish humility?
The main entrance to the legendary amusement park.
Beautiful, rain soaked plaza, home to to some very high end stores. You can see the front of a Royal Copenhagen china store on the right.
Copenhagen From Our Balcony
The view back toward the central city from the balcony of our stateroom as we wait to sail.
As we sailed out of Copenhagen this line of wind generators was visible in the hazy distance.
