COPENHAGEN - PART 2

Copenhagen

On the Sunday (and our last day) we luckily woke up to beautiful clear blue skies in Copenhagen, so we decided to do as much walking as we could to make up for the snow the day before

We set off to Jaegersborgadde as I'd heard good things about the area, we took our time strolling there and taking in all the buildings and sights.

Once we arrived our first stop was Meyers Bakery for a pastry and a cinnamon bun to share, I mean...just look at them!

They were so.flipping.good. if I lived near a bakery that sold anything half as good as these I'd be three times the size of what I am now. We had a chocolate milk to wash it down with too...we were on holiday!

The whole street was really lovely with cute independent shops and coffee shops, I liked the whole vibe of the area, just a nice place to be.

We took a walk through Assistens Cemetery just across the road, which looked a bit like a winter wonderland with all the snow that had settled from the day before. Hans Christian Anderson's grave is in here too.

After coming out the other end of the cemetery we decided to start walking back up to the train station so we weren't miles away for later on, going in to vintage shops we found a long the way and taking in their street art.

We came across Torvehallerne market by complete accident whilst looking for the botanical gardens, they sell so many different types of food in here - it seemed to be a very popular place as it was pretty busy with people meeting up for lunch and a drink.

We obviously hunted down the pizza stall in about two seconds flat!

And enjoyed the view of watching everyone going about their daily business

I have to mention the hot dog carts that seem to be everywhere on the streets of Copenhagen. The inflight magazine had a whole feature on the resurgence of these carts - apparently there used to be about 300 or so and then they went out of fashion and there's only about 100 now - but they are making a huge come back with the more popular ones being featured on 'places you must try' lists and such like.

When we first arrived in Copenhagen and had a little walk up to the hotel, we grabbed one of these hot dogs to put us on until a little later. My camera was all packed away (there's a pic on Instagram, obvs) but I really love the style of these little carts, and the hot dog was very good!

Before taking the train back to the airport we had a wander around the beautiful botanical gardens (free entry!), they had a super cute cactus house and all the water was completely frozen over.

I can imagine it being so beautiful in the summer, we'll definitely have to make sure we go back.

And that was the end of our trip to Copenhagen. We've already booked in a weekend to Brussels in March so any tips and recommendations are greatly welcome!

Thanks Copenhagen, you were a blast.

  3. Looks amazing! Brussels is awesome! Go to A La Mort Sabite for beer, Bia Mara for some of the best fish and chips you'll ever have have and stop to get some frites (with frite sauce) at one of the many stalls! Not for getting the waffles and chocolate....yum!
