Travel Blogs from Copenhagen
Made a weekend trip to Copenhagen on a Friday evening until Sunday afternoon.
It was quite easy to get from the airport into Copenhagen Central Station. There is a train that leaves from the airport regularly and is fairly affordable.
Copenhagen felt fairly quiet throughout the weekend, and it is really quite a nice place to visit …
... to Nyhaven (New Harbor) the harbor area that you see on postcards with all the pretty colored buildings and boats. Kind of like a bigger version of the Annapolis dock area. It took about 25 minutes to walk there but through lovely squares and on pedestrian streets. We then took one of the canal boat tours. They have these funny very low boats that hold about 100 people powered by batteries so no smelly gas smell that go in the harbor and through the ...
... drugs are not condoned or allowed in Christiania) are seen as equal to the celebrities and wealthy men who live there as well. Danish people are said to be quite proud of Christiania for those reasons; you can be whoever you want to be in Christiania, nobody cares about what you're 'supposed' to be. Danish governments have tried to remove the community, but it has such support, that that was of no use. Since a 2011 agreement with the government, they are raising ...
... the various rooms with their old furnishings, artwork, and other royal trappings, including the impressive crown jewels.
Continuing our walking tour through some very nice pedestrian only streets, we noticed that things had started to come alive. After no doubt sleeping in on their holiday, the Danes were now out and about enjoying a beautiful day in the parks and the sidewalk cafes. Most of the stores were still closed, much to Sherry and Sandra’s disappointment, ...
... ridges' got up to dance at one point and then later the guy gets up and does the hand waving thing the Born-Agains do in church and then up onto the pew doing another little boogie, sharply dressed in a singlet!

It was a little bit of a disappointment.
At first glance it seemed a little bit old, but not surprisingly as it was nearby the train station and a bit cheaper than the hotels you'll find near Nyhavn and the centre.
The second night we returned to the room and the showers had no hot water, and the sink was just spitting out dirty yellow water. The receptionist moved us, but that second room had dirty towels and smelled of cigarettes (the entire hotel has No Smoking policy). We ended up having to stay in a twin bedroom, when we'd booked a double.
The only redeeming factor is the continental buffet breakfast which is included in the price.
