Took a 60 minute canal tour, which I highly recommend and I don't say this because it was an amazing tour. It was a good tour with a good guide but mainly because it was a great way to acquaint ourselves with the city.
There were a number of bridges dotting the canal. Some so low even our captain had to duck
After which we made our way to the infamous Nyhavn. The whole time the boys seemed to be cranky, my leg was starting to hurt for those who don't know I had an ankle injury in December and am still recovering from it. I am good as long as I take my medication. But with all the traveling I forgot to take my pill twice. When bribing the kids with ice cream didn't even make them happy and I was in so much pain I started to hobble we decided it was time to head back to the apartment. We all took showers horrible water pressure put on a movie and called it an early night.
Best Decision Ever! Because on day 2 everyone was in a better mood.
Day two was going to be our first day of renting a car and venturing out of Copenhagen. Interesting tidbit, car rental's are very expensive for the Danes as are car's in general. They do this to encourage walking and biking. But if you are not a Dane then renting a car is not a problem.
Destination - Mon Klint a 6 km stretch of chalk cliffs along the eastern coast of the Danish island of Møn in the Baltic Sea. Some of the cliffs fall a sheer 120 m to the sea below.
I was afraid the kids would give us a hard time with all the walking. I was wrong.
There were a few hundred steps that led you up the cliffs and then once you came back down there were another few hundred steps that took you down to the beach.
We were back in Copenhagen by early evening. Found a car park.. parking is also pretty pricey. But being used to New York prices they didn't shock us too much.
The rest of the evening we spent walking through the streets of Indre By. It was like a 5th Ave of sorts.
We made one last stop at the Round Tower before heading to dinner. The Round Tower was built in the 17th century as an astronomical observatory.
Instead of stairs there was a spiral ramp which the boys loved to run up and then on the way down they both got on the little umbrella stroller and rolled down.
