Trip to Scandinavia 2013: Part I of Copenhagen, Denmark

After 8 long posts about Norway, finally it's time to blog about Denmark, another interesting country!

The flight from Bergen Norway to Copenhagen Denmark is about an hour plus.

By the way, I have yet to reply each and every single of the comments for the passed few posts, time is really not enough these days! But trust me, I did read all of them ok? ;)

View we saw from inside the coach

Temperature doesn't vary so much, but it's slightly warmer here in Denmark

We passed by the famous Tivoli Garden! Hmm we actually went inside, the place is so huge and beautiful! Shall blog about it soon!


 We visited one of the castle here, the Christianborg castle.
I don't know why but it's quite cold here!

Probably because there's a lake here?

The guard is very strict and fierce, don't play play!

Tour guide brought us inside the castle to introduce some history, and we have to leave our bags and cameras outside

This lady in red intended to take closer photo with the guard but kena warning! Pity....

Just a short tour at this castle. Good for me as I am not interested in castle visits, haha xD

Tourist buses here are also equipped with free wifi

Looking kinda fresh as we have had enough rest

Forgot what is this building... 

Passed by a series of unique buildings!

A trip to Copenhagen is not complete without visiting Carlsberg factory!!
Used to be a factory here but now it has turned into a museum

Quite a huge place

The statue of the founder of Carlsberg

One of the attraction is this bottle display room!

Thousands of Carlsberg bottles from around the world. All are very dusty, so can tell they are here for many many years already~

There's an area showing how the beer is made these days

And also an area showing us how the beer is made during the olden days

That's not a real person, haha xD

A small garden around the museum

There's a small horse farm here as well

Those horses are very beautiful to see, but the place is very smelly cause of their poo poo, haha xD

One of the storage method last time

A very cute Carlsberg van!

Each of us got 2 coupons to pick drinks that we want. Basically 2 kinds of Carlsberg beer and some soft drinks. Of course beer taste better and fresher there!

A trip to Copenhagen is also not complete without the visit to the Little Mermaid statue, based on the famous author Hans Christian Anderson.
Saw this van nearby the statue, but the lady boss is very rude, she told us no touching on the souvenirs if we don't intend to buy >.<

The statue is so much smaller than what I've expected! It's just the size of a human being

Nonetheless it's the Copenhagen's attraction, must come and take photos!

Nothing much to see nearby, just this statue. If you read the papers, you'd know that this little mermaid celebrated its 100th anniversary in August this year


We dropped by Gefionspringvandent too!

There's a story behind this fountain, if you're interested please Google for it ;)

This is another tourist attraction I'd say

 A nice church just beside the fountain

  4. Do you realise that many places & buildings in Europe look very greyish so your colourful clothes made them alive! LOL
    I am curious how their European castles really looked like inside as the layout and structures in olden days could be interesting to live there.


    Wow! I just googled that Christiansborg Castle and it was a palace in the ancient times! The interior is very huge and pretty indeed with bridges, chapels and Queen's parlours! I wonder why cameras are not allowed.
