Loved Biking in Copenhagen

Copenhagen, one of the most cycle-friendly cities I have ever visited, impressed me almost instantly. Relaxing and cool vibes of  the city make it easy to feel like home. Discover the wide range of fantastic things  and activities to do in the city, where to eat , what to do and which places to visit, from local attractions to food and entertainment.

TOP THINGS TO DO

Nyhavns colourful houses caught my eye. Nyhavn, Copenhagens historical harbour, one of the most picturesque areas, is a must see when in the city.

Visited Christiansborg Palace (95 DKK). Free access to the tower, from where you can  admire Copenhagen’s overwhelming beauty.

WHERE TO EAT

Tasted a delicious steak, au gratin potatoes, salad bar and white wine (cost 250 DKK) @ Jensens Bøfhus, Vesterbrogade.

Got a tasting experience of traditional danish dishes @ Frk. Barners Kaelder. Great quality, quite good portions and  affordable prices. Cost about 200 DKK.

Enjoyed every moment of my visit to Botanical Garden. Free entry.

  1. I love Copenhagen and I have been to there few times. Your post a great joy to read. I love it. Biking in summer is easy! Can You imagine, that in Oulu, Finland people bike in winter also. In Finland it is natural. People bike when going to their work, for pleasure and when going for shopping. The best biking town in Finland is Oulu.

    Oulu is also the only one town in the world which offers free reindeer races intended for everyone. Make the difference between reindeer rides and reindeer races. Reindeer rides are commercial and they can be done at the Arctic Circle nearby the town Rovaniemi, but reindeer races only in Oulu.

    This is winter biking in Oulu:

    Have a wonderful day!
