I promised to go on Photo Safari ( see Petunias sidebar ) during my short stay in the capital of Denmark, Copenhagen this week.
The problem is to choose which photos to show. Should they be "family"-photos, Artistic, Photo-technical great (almost impossible by me), or just describe something of what we saw when strolling (between my wife´s shopping) up and down the streets in the center of the city.
The result is:
Leaving Norway at 06.08.38 am catching Sponvika from the new Svinesund-bridgeAt 10.19.04 am (no speed control please) we left Sweden over the Øresund BridgeComing early to Copenhagen we made some strolling prior to the lunch at "The Small Pharmacy" and the dish was described in my thursday post:Then the typical Copenhagen city environment is digitalized:Bicycles can be seen all over the city and some are covered with flowers. The Danes have real bicycle-culture and the cycle-people in Oslo have much to learn by going there. Here they are waitung for Green Light when crossing the road.
Public art is sometimes also playground for children, and since August 15th 2007 Denmark has
a ban against smoking in busses, schools and institutions, locations accessible to the public such as museums, all workplaces, with exceptions possible in one-man offices and the most important: indoor food serving places
Queuing up for the daily RED Hot Dog (mandatory for visitors)
or go to Nyhavn for a beer or/and a "frokost-platte"
Copenhagen´s greatest attraction must be Tivoli. The park is partly an amusement area with horrifying roller coasters etc., bur Tivoli is also a Pleasure Garden with good restaurants, pubs and tranquility areas.
The Tivoli Guards marching,The horrifying Dæmonen rollercoaster features an Immelmann loop, a loop, and a Zero-G roll. Thanks god the tour only takes two minutes.The world's tallest carousel, Himmelskibet, opened in Tivoli in 2006. It is 80 meters high and is built by the Austrian company, Funtime.
The Nimb for posh dinners
Outside Tivoli in streets and squares we can be entertained by Street Dancers and Folk DancersWhen the Photo Safari gives you a break, locate Hviids Vinstue at Kongens Nytorv etablished 1723, and ask for a beer. You are worth it.!
