I recently went on a three day trip to Copenhagen as a birthday & Christmas present from my sister & mum, I thought I would share some of my favourite photos & tell you what I thought of Copenhagen & what I got up to.
The reason we went to Copenhagen was to get into the Christmas spirit & to explore a new city. We visited all the Christmas markets & I finally tried mulled wine or as they like to call it Glögg, an it was really yummy. We also ate lots of Danish pastries.
We were wondering around Copenhagen one day & came across a boat tour through the canals, the price was amazing & we thought it would be a nice way to see more of the city & learn more about the history of Copenhagen. Even though it was a cold wet day we really enjoyed ourselves, we got to see The Little Mermaid which was on the top of my list to do.
I went to Copenhagen with my older sister; my flights there were a birthday gift from her & my hotel was a gift from my mum. It was nice to spend some sisterly time together as we rarely get to see each other much.
While we were away I filmed two videos, I filmed a lookbook for my main channel & a lovely vlog for my vlog channel. You can find my lookbook here & my vlog here.
On our first day we wandered around the streets of Copenhagen explore little roads with cute apartments on them.
When we first arrived to Copenhagen we dropped our bags off at our hotel (Which I will be reviewing soon) an we went off on a search for the Hans Christian Anderson museum. We both wanted to go here as of course he wrote so many classic fairy tales & we wanted to find out more about him as a person. Once we was inside you really forgot how many fairy tales he actually wrote. It’s made me want to collect all his books ready for when I have children.
We went to Tivoli gardens, my dad had spoken about going here as a teen on a school trip one year & said we should go give it a look, so one evening we got all wrapped up & wandered around Tivoli gardens to get into the Christmas spirit. Tivoli gardens is an amusement park & around Christmas time also has a Christmas market. You can buy tickets to just go inside or buy tickets for all the rides as well, I’m not a big fan on rides & neither was my sister so we decided to just wander around the park. For me personally the park is beautiful with all the lights everywhere but I found the market to be a little rubbish, they literally had about 10 stalls & that was it. Once you looked around the park & at all the lights it just seemed pointless hanging around as lots of the shops & food places in the park were closed even though it was only 8pm. I would say go if you like rides but there’s no point going if you don’t as you can pretty much see all the lights from the outside.
Overall I had a lovely time in Copenhagen & would go again in a heartbeat. The city really gets into the Christmas sprite & you don’t realize how much history here is in one city. I also love that everything was walkable, there was no need to get the metro or cabs anywhere (really helped me burn all the calories from all the pastries I ate)
