Copenhagen is a beautiful, busy city. We spent three days exploring in and around it and really enjoyed it.
The first day, however, was pretty low key since some of us (read: Micah and me) were pretty jet-lagged. We spent some time resting at our airbnb (Mike and Ethan got in an extra walk to the botanic gardens while Micah and I slept an extra hour) and then we all went for a walk to explore the awesome and famous Nyhavn area. We had a delicious dinner of street food and saw the outside of the Rosenborg Castle.

We had a nice, slow start to our second day in Copenhagen. The boys slept in, played some legos and then we headed out for a delicious breakfast nearby.
We explored the Round Tower – a very cool place, as you can see!
We walked the city a bunch – visited a beautiful church, found our first Lego store (Legos began in Denmark, for those of you that didn’t know), and ate lunch on the go.
Next up, we went on a boat tour where we saw the city from a different view and were able to snap a pic of the famous “Little Mermaid” without being with the massive crowds!
Then we checked out the palace and some ruins of a previous palace (that the current one was built upon).
We finished our day at Tivoli – the second-oldest operating amusement park in the world. We played some games (Mike won a fidget spinner!), rode a boat ride and ate some food. Definitely a neat experience!
– Day 3 –
We enjoyed a very peaceful morning at the botanic gardens on our third day. We grabbed breakfast from a local bakery to eat there and then walked the gardens for a while.
Then we did some more exploring of the city. We got to see another beautiful church and watch the changing of the guards.
That afternoon we took a bus to the Experimentarium. We had an excellent time there – it’s a really wonderful kids’ museum that we would highly recommend! (This is also the location of Micah’s horrifying experience of being lost – thankfully it was incredibly short-lived and he did the right thing!) Before exploring there, though, we touched the Baltic Sea – gorgeous and chilly!
I’ll save our final day in Denmark for the next post…it gets a post all by itself since it was pretty epic. 😉
Thankful for safe travels and safe boys. Thankful for Mike’s preparation.
