Copenhagen, Denmark- July 5, 2017
Arrived in Copenhagen on July 4 to a 5th floor walk-up airbnb in a neighborhood apartment building . I like this city a lot.
It’s Scandinavia’s answer to Amsterdam, with better food and a better summer weather. I went on a 12 kilometer walk today through the streets of Copenhagen, which took about 4.5 hours including lunch. So far, the Scandinavian summer has been quite favorable, right now you can spend a whole day out of doors without the temperature getting above the high 60’s.
I’m shopping at local grocers for breads & cheeses for breakfast. One thing that Copenhagen lacks compared to Hamburg & Amsterdam is the croissant & pastry culture. I forgot to mention previously that I ate the best croissants of my life at of a small bakery in suburban Amsterdam last week, so I’m presently giving Holland the nod on the best croissants on the planet.
Copenhagen is about as funky & laid-back a city as you can find in Europe. The Copenhagen Jazz Festival starts on Friday & runs for a couple of weeks. I leave on Saturday, but I might catch one of the opening venues.
