19 Things Copenhagen Taught Me

Thoughts from my weekend trip to Copenhagen, Denmark. 

I am still captivated by the cozy charm of Copenhagen after taking a brief trip there earlier this week.

In order to convey the wonderful experience of a young independent traveler in Denmark’s quaint capital city, I’ve made a list of some things I learned during my visit.

  1. Canals are a beautiful addition to any city.
  2. It’s always uplifting to find random inspirational messages when exploring a town.
  3. Christmas lights can turn any building into a glittering holiday masterpiece.
  4. It’s never too cold for ice cream; numb hands simply turn holding the ice cream into an exciting challenge.
  5. Therefore, the solution to cold hands is buying a heartwarming cup of spicy mulled wine.
  6. Climbing a tower always turns out to be more exhausting than you thought.
  7. However, the view from the top of said tower is always worth it.
  8. A gorgeous sunset always goes nicely with said view from the top of said tower.tower in copenhagen denmark travel

  10. Graffiti is more appealing when it sends a nice message.
  11. When exploring a city, always make an effort to visit green areas and spend some quality time with nature.
  12. Every store in Copenhagen puts a substantial amount of effort into elaborate displays of beautiful Christmas decorations.
  13. It’s all too easy to spend a whole afternoon in a poster shop if you’re not conscious of time.
  14. Tivoli is the physical embodiment of the holiday spirit. Every path reveals a different array of festive lights and sparkling tinsel, while golden archways and colorful bridges turn the whole park into a glistening Christmas phenomenon.
