Saying Goodbye to Copenhagen

We spent our last day and a half in Copenhagen.. we started our fourth morning with breakfast in Cafe Europa. This was my favorite breakfast of our trip.  




After our bellies were full we headed towards Church of Our Savior, a baroque church most famous for its helix spire with an external winding staircase that can be climbed to the top, offering extensive views over central Copenhagen. All I can say is wow!




It had been a chilly morning, by the time we were half way up the spiral it had gotten windy and started to drizzle.. it was exhilarating, also a little scary.. had to really hold on to D, I was afraid we'd fly away. H had to be carried all the way up, the stairs were irregular so M was exhausted by the time we got to the top. But so worth it. 

After the church we walked through Christiania, a self proclaimed autonomous neighborhood of less than 1000 residents. It is famous for it's hippie culture and cannabis. No photography. 

We were getting hungry and perfect because we were headed towards Copenhagen's famous food market Papiroen aka Paper Islands.


We had really good taco's and a creme brulee donut! Sorry we were too hungry and the place was so full we barely got a spot to sit.. no pictures. It had started to rain outside and we were trying to contemplate if and how we were to proceed with our evening plans.

Firstly, let me just say yay Uber. So much easier to use then trying to figure our the local taxi system etc. A second yay to mother nature.. the rain calmed down and we were able to continue with our afternoon plans. We were very excited to visit Tivoli, the second oldest operating amusement park in the world. Interestingly enough the oldest amusement park in the world is also in Denmark!






There was nothing old about Tivoli. What I found interesting was how smack dab right in the middle of the city it was.. the rides had something for everyone.



Loved this little alley, reminded my of something right of Harry Potter. Denmark's very own Diagon Alley? 


Look at those happy faces! 

The next morning we busied ourselves in packing and then walked around and visited Nyhavn one last time before saying goodbye


I'm glad we stayed for 5 days instead of rushing through it. It would have left us much more tired and when travelling with kids you have to plan a looser schedule.. you never know what will happen. With more days we were able to really enjoy the city and some parts of the country. 

We are back home now, already thinking where next?
