Hey ChrissyAnn123, my maternal family is from there and I'm looking to see the country of my ancestors.

If you love the ocean wildlife, then definitely visit the Blue Planet. It's the biggest aquarium in Northern Europe. I also recommend eating at Cofoco.

I couldn't tell you I've never been to Copenhagen,Denmark
|I've been to Copenhagen on Jan 29, 2016 @ 10:30 am|
Hey! Later reply, but I've been to Copenhagen on a layover. Honestly, the best part was exiting the airport, taking the train for 8 euros and immediately being in the city centre. I guess the red light district is a must-see, and all the cafes that sell "special brownies", haha. I would rent a bike and just wander around the canals and all the cute neighbourhoods. You can't really go wrong with any of the cafes there; they're all amazing. I say just pick one, and try it.

Thanks Kat719 . I was looking for more specific details, like business names, addresses etc. I realize this is very specific information, but I thought it wouldn't hurt to ask. Thanks for the tip about the train. I hear that's the best way to get around.
Canals, red light districts and brownies sounds like Amsterdam . That's a whole different trip! Lol
|I did...and as a result, I'm moving there next year!! on Jan 31, 2016 @ 05:15 pm|
Although it may be a little late, I wanted to share my experience with you...I went to Copenhagen for 3 days, and absolutely fell in LOVE with the city. As a result, I'll be moving there September 2017 for grad school, and can't wait. A must do is a canal tour, in Nyhavn - I used this company www.stromma.dk, the guide was excellent, made it super fun, and was an excellent way of seeing the city by boat (we chose the Grand tour)! Also in Nyhavn, take the little water taxi to the Street Food http://copenhagenstreetfood.dk/en/ - it was probably the best part of the trip...it's a HUGE hall (former paper factory) that has tons of little food stalls offering food from all around the world, and an amazing selection of beers. I recommend the frites fried in duck fat, and of course, the open faced sandwich - Smorrebrod...delicious! We visited the national museum, it is free of charge http://en.natmus.dk/museums/the-national-museum-of-denmark/, and has an excellent prehistoric exhibit, and LOTS of great Viking artefacts! We also visited the former cisterns, which are now turned into a great visitor attraction http://www.visitcopenhagen.com/copenhagen/the-cisterns-gdk414124, with really cool background music - across the street is the former hunting house of former Danish Royalty (can't remember who), and it has another great little park to walk around in. We stayed at an air B n B in Norrebro, which was a 1 min walk from a bus stop and various grocery stores. In all honesty, Copenhagen is probably my favourite city that I have ever visited, and can't wait to move there! I hope you enjoy it as much as I did!
|Thank you Csaves on Feb 01, 2016 @ 11:12 pm|
Thanks so much for sharing your experience and for all the helpful info. I have no definite date set for travel yet, but I will be visiting the sites you mentioned for further research. My grandfather was from Hillerod which isn't too far from Copenhagen.
Smorrebrod is high on the list of foods to try. Have an excellent adventure in Denmark. I would love to be able to move there.

Wow, that would be totally wonderful to get to go to a place like that. It's beyond my each, one can only dream sometimes.
