  3. Enjoyed the videos and pictures. I would really like to go to the oldest amusement park – love rides. Also experience all the good food.

  4. Wow!! It’s just beautiful. I have the song from the old Danny Kaye movie playing in my head – Hans Christian Andersen: Wonderful Copenhagen

  5. WOW, now that’s a place I would definitely go to – just beautiful. So much to see, old and new. Love the colors of the houses!! Loved all the pictures and the videos. Love the way they are set up for the bicycles, and the old amusement park. This is really an awesome place. AZ

  7. It’s really fun for me to do these blogs. Of course, I have a double motive since the beautiful photos and fascinating information gets my creative juices flowing. But Copenhagen really surprised me. What a beautiful city with parks, museums, excellent restaurants, mild weather both summer and winter, lovely architecture — new and old — plus historical sites. Copenhagen should rate high on most bucket lists! There’s so much beauty in Europe.
