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.
- Canals are a beautiful addition to any city.
- It’s always uplifting to find random inspirational messages when exploring a town.
- Christmas lights can turn any building into a glittering holiday masterpiece.
- It’s never too cold for ice cream; numb hands simply turn holding the ice cream into an exciting challenge.
- Therefore, the solution to cold hands is buying a heartwarming cup of spicy mulled wine.
- Climbing a tower always turns out to be more exhausting than you thought.
- However, the view from the top of said tower is always worth it.
- A gorgeous sunset always goes nicely with said view from the top of said tower.
- Savory crepes might even be more amazing than sweet crepes.
- Graffiti is more appealing when it sends a nice message.
- When exploring a city, always make an effort to visit green areas and spend some quality time with nature.
- Every store in Copenhagen puts a substantial amount of effort into elaborate displays of beautiful Christmas decorations.
- It’s all too easy to spend a whole afternoon in a poster shop if you’re not conscious of time.
- 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. (Book your skip-the-line tickets to Tivoli here!)
- Hostels that serve free breakfast are the best kind of hostels.
- The Royal Library epitomizes modern architecture with its interesting angles, sleek interior, and massive glass windows.
- The adorable atmosphere of a cafe never changes no matter what European country you venture to.
- The colorful waterfront buildings of Nyhavn provide a stunningly saturated and vibrant sight, even through gray rainy weather.
- A trip to the Botanical Garden Greenhouse allows one to meander through warm tropical temperatures and mingle with massive exotic plants, despite being in a cold, rainy, flat, northern European country.
