Successfully navigated our way via the train system to our hotel - right in the centre of town too which was great. To our surprise the hotel was quite fancy and we really stood out as dirty backpackers!! We also unfortunately discovered they charged a LOT for laundry .. *sigh*
Visited Princess Mary's palace for the changing of the guard which was fun
Wasn't as cold as we had expected. 7 degrees at its coldest while we were there (may have been colder while we were curled up in blankets asleep!!), did however sprinkle alot. They resorted to fake snow for a ski/snow board exhibition in the town square! Another 4 weeks or so and there'd probably have been real snow.
One thing that really stood out was the amount of bikes, they were everywhere, thousands of them. They even have their own proper lanes on all the roads and their own bike lights at intersections!!!
Was surprised by how many people spoke english, and so well! you couldnt tell if english was there first or 2nd language!! made us feel bad for having no idea how to speak their language!
Validated our Eurail pass and started the train travel chunk of our trip ... headed off from Copenhagen to Berlin by train.
