Ok, I’ll level with you – Copenhagen, as destination, was never on our radar, and if it wasn’t for Lauren and Abe who invited us here, we probably never would have considered visiting Denmark at all, but man…it was amazing!

After Lauren and Abe picked us up in Malmö, we drove back to Denmark and spent the entire day in the Danish capital. Copenhagen is situated on the eastern coast of the Zealand island and has a population of about 600 000 people.  This means that there are about 4,5 times more people in Bloemfontein (South Africa) than in Copenhagen. Originally, this city was a Viking fishing village founded in the 10th century and became the capital city in the early 15th century. Today it is a vibrant and cosy city with cutting edge restaurants, cobble stone streets and beautiful canals that make it the heart beat of Denmark.

Our first stop was one of Copenhagen’s most recognisable characters, the Little Mermaid. We then walked over to Amalienborg Palace, the home of the Danish Royal Family. We then took some pictures at the stunning Copenhagen Opera House and then hopped on a boat to explore the rest of the city. (watch our video of Copenhagen – click here)

This city tops the list year after year for being one of the world’s friendliest cities and now we understand why – when the sun is out, everyone gathers around the canals, enjoy some wine, make some music and dance around in the streets. Life in Copenhagen is is fun!
