Nyhavn

A Copenhagen must (in the summer, that is!)

Before that whole fire fiasco, Kimi and I were having a grand ‘ole time doing all the touristy things in Copenhagen. I’ve been living here for 10 months now, but there is still so much I’ve yet to see!

First thing we checked off the list: a sunny, warm-weather canal tour.

Nyhavn

Ah, Nyhavn. I used to walk along the harbor in the wintertime cause it was so quiet (but cold, obvi).

Nyhavn

It’s much nicer now. Warm, lively, full of people.

It was Kimi’s first full day in Copenhagen and we decided to start it here, on one of the many canal boats departing every hour.

All smiles.

And all sunshine.

The canal boats depart from Nyhavn (“new harbor”) and take you all around the inner city.

Playhouse

This is the Copenhagen playhouse.

Opera house

And the opera house.

Open seas
Royal yacht

The royal yacht.

Little mermaid

See all those people? They’re crowded around the teensy, tiny Little Mermaid statue. I mean, I love mermaids as much as the next person but that’s a little excessive, no?

Christianshavn

Christianshavn. Such a cute part of the city.

Church of our savior

The Church of Our Savior. We hiked to the tippy top of this guy later in the day.

The old Scandinavian stock exchange.

And we back

And back to Nyhavn.

Nyhavn

That’s Hans Christian Andersen’s house in the center. Or, it was. About 180 years ago.

The whole tour took about an hour and cost around $6 per person. Not a bad way to get a sneak peak of Copenhagen’s invariable cuteness.
