What to see and photograph in Copenhagen
Copenhagen is the capital city of Denmark. Denmark is part of Scandinavia, the EU and Schengen community. The main site for tourists and photographers are;
- The little mermaid
- National museum of Denmark
- Tivoli gardens
- Nyhavn harbor (a great place to get a beer)
- Rosenborg castle
- Strøget – 1.1km of shopping
- The Round Tower (and view of the city)
I have just listed a few great places to visit and take photos in Copenhagen, but there are much more places to visit, if I was to write about everything you could do in Copenhagen, this would be a huge blog! I was hosted by a good friend in Copenhagen. He has a travel company called One Step Away. In Danish you could describe it as Bilferie til Italien og Kroatien.
From the 4 Scandinavian countries I have visited, Copenhagen definitely has the most reasonable prices. Copenhagen is one of the most popular tourists destinations in the world, there are hordes of tourists walking around and visiting the sites. It’s quite a big city, so I would recommend taking a hop on – hop off bus tour, and maybe a boat tour, there are many Copenhagen tours to choose from.
Around Nyhavn harbor, there are many bars and restaurants serving Carlsberg and food, it’s a busy part of town!
Christiania or Freetown Christiania is a self proclaimed autonomous region of Copenhagen. This place is interesting to visit because the openly sell marijuana in the market and most people in there are under the influence of marijuana. You are very likely to hear a Bob Marley song whilst walking around here! On the back Christiania sign it says ‘welcome to the EU’ so does a visit to Christiania count as visiting another country? I think that’s stretching it a bit!
Flixbus – Copenhagen to Berlin night service
How to get from Copenhagen to Berlin by bus
From Copenhagen I took the overnight Flixbus service to Berlin, leaving at 2340 and arriving the next morning in Berlin around 8am (pictured above shortly after arrival), this cost €19, which was great value. When traveling in expensive Scandinavian countries you should always look for the option of a cheap overnight bus. This can save you a lot of money, it’s a hotel whilst traveling to your next destination really.
