A Day in Copenhagen

Nyhavn Canal

Copenhagen is a big city with easily a week's worth of museums and sites to see and we had 24 hours.  We opted for Nyhavn (that water just calls to us...), a walk around the city down the Stroget (a major shopping/restaurant/social scene street) with stops at City Hall Square, Rosenborg Castle, the King's Garden and Orsteds Park before heading to the railway station for our train to the airport.  Here's Copenhagen on the run...

Looking one way...

and then the other along Nyhavn. Lined with bars and restaurants, it's a popular spot for tourists and locals.

Copenhagen's first lightship, constructed in 1895.

Views along the Stroget - the longest car free pedestrian shopping area in Europe.

City Hall Square 

Copenhagen's elegant City Hall was constructed between 1892-1905.

Passageway shopping area in the Latin Quarter.

Rosenborg Castle was built in 1606 and used as the royal residence until 1710.
Today it is a museum housing the Danish Crown Jewels and Regalia.

The Royal Life Guards are charged with guarding Rosenborg Castle.

We did say the "kings" garden...
