24hrs in Copenhagen, Denmark

Well, my European adventure & graduation weekend are now officially over. AH. 

I have so many posts for the next three weeks, it's unreal.  Between all of my pictures from the trip, and graduation, I have tons to share!

Christiansbourg Palace
Anyway, here's a glimpse into my 24hrs in Copenhagen.  Since I got there at 1pm I had enough time to check into my hotel, grab a map, and explore while everything was still open.  I walked around the entire city for about 4 hours, it's such a walkable area, and I had a great map that showed me where everything I needed to see was.


Walking around Nyhavn
I loved all of the restaurants and cafes along the water, everyone was just walking around with a beer in hand loving life.  It was a beautiful day!

A Legalize Marijuana Parade filled the streets all over the city.




I stayed at the wonderful Axel Guldsmeden Hotel, it's an organic sustainable hotel just a few minutes walk from the Copenhagen Central Station, it was absolutely perfect.  The hotel was so cute and Earthy, I wish I had had time for the spa because it sounded amazing.  The room was lovely, and the bathroom had heated floors and showcased their line of signature beauty products which smelled amazing!

For dinner in Copenhagen I dined at Frk. Barners Kaelder, which was right across the street from the hotel.  Frk. Barners Kaelder features authentic Danish cuisine, which I was really looking to try, and it was amazing.

 [PS: For this food part I'm sad because I know I took pictures of everything, but I'm missing some!] 

I started with a creamy mushroom soup, it was delish.  For my entree I ordered Miss Barner's Stew, traditional Danish stew, with mashed potatoes.  It reminded me a lot of Hungarian dishes, the sauce was a paprika scream sauce with pork, sausage, bacon, mushroom, and pearl onions.


For dessert I went to an ice-cream shop in Tivoli Gardens and got an amazing waffle sundae, but I don't know what happened to my picture!!!

The next morning, after a great night sleep, I ate a great organic breakfast at the Axel Guldsmeden restaurant, and left for Paris!
