My Little Guide to Copenhagen
Here are some tips for a long-weekend-stay in Copenhagen. I've only put the things I liked most - so this is a short and comprised list for all the to-do's you shouldn't miss. From cinnamon rolls to the breathtaking Louisiana museum of modern art.
Last weekend I visited Denmark for the first time. I didn't really know what to expect, the only thing I have heard from people is that it is terribly expensive there. Well, more on that later.
What I discovered, was a lovely city with very friendly people, a lot to see and a lot of good food.
When we arrived, we were quite surprised how quiet everything and everyone was; in the train, the metro, on the streets. Huge change when coming from noisy Berlin. This also didn't really change over the day when we strolled through the streets to enjoy the atmosphere. Towards night though, when we left the apartment for dinner, it seemed that everyone was on the streets now - there were many people talking, laughing, drinking and enjoying life. The same went for the restaurants, which were characterised by a vivid, friendly and easy-going atmosphere.
Well, as I visited the city only over the weekend, this is not a huge guide with tons of recommendations. But it is one with the things I liked most and I would do again when visiting Copenhagen for the first or second time.

Nyhavn- The lovely haven with plenty of colourful houses, cafes and restaurants and delicious ice cream in one of the many shops that make the cones themselves.
Parcs- There are plenty of nice parks in the city, which are great for a chill-out in between sightseeing. You'll discover them pretty easily, just have a look at a local map and you'll see green spots everywhere.
