It was never a secret that I wanted to visit Copenhagen. I think I only asked Mache (the hubby) about 20 times. We once drove through the city and stayed one night there, but it was more a stop to sleep than a city trip. Now that we were in Malmö for a few days, we took the train to Copenhagen and I LOVED IT! End of October was still a perfect time to visit this city! I can imagine it would be even better in Summer.
I absolutely loved the city Copenhagen. I was impressed by Malmö too, but Copenhagen is stole my heart. The colored houses in the streets, the buildings, the canals, boats and the people! Next to that, they have my favorite boutique (CHANEL) and they are opening a new one soon! Somehow this is always a store that I like to see while traveling.
Such a cute houses and buildings everywhere. From white proper buildings to colorful cute houses. Copenhagen has it all. Beautiful hotels and cute city streets. Lots to see! We took baby Mason in the stroller and walked our way through the streets in the city, while the little one was taking a nap whenever he liked. He was looking around to see all the colors as well. It was our first family trip in Scandinavia and it was only one day in Copenhagen, but I would love to go back and explore more.
The Danish people were very kind to us. Whenever we asked for help in a store, we got a polite and long answer. This is not always the case in Stockholm. The people smiled a lot, were friendly and the service in the restaurant Mama Rosa was great. I got to feed Mason in the third floor of the restaurant and the waitress was very helpful. The food was Italian, something Mache and I both like a lot. We ate outside, the weather still let us and there was a warming element outside as well. Mason was parked in the stroller next to us and enjoyed watching the people pass by. It felt like a holiday in Italy haha. Ok, maybe that’s a bit too much. But it was really nice!
I had so much fun with the language, since I speak Dutch, English and Swedish (understand a lot of German and some French too). Some things we were reading in Danish, was just like a mix of Ducht and Swedish. It was really fun to try to understand what people were saying. I could understand pretty much actually. However it’s too hard for me to speak Danish. #lifegoals
Being Dutch, I like the canals of Amsterdam and Utrecht (where I am from). The canals in Copenhagen were truly beautiful as well and those little houses and buildings gave me a bit of the same feeling as Amsterdam. It was great. It was like a Scandinavian version of ‘back home’.
I can’t actually think of anything that I didn’t like about Copenhagen, besides the fact that the way back from Copenhagen to Malmö by train too more than one hour due to passport checks (the train stopped). While the way to Copenhagen from Malmö only took 35 minutes. Oh, and the price difference from buying the ticket in Malmö (Sweden) or in Copenhagen (Denmark) was huge. It was way cheaper to buy the ticket in Denmark. It was surely worth the train trip to Copenhagen from Malmö.
Here are some photo’s to give you some impression of our trip. I hope you enjoy to see where we have been! I loved taking them and having them as a memory.
Did you ever go to Copenhagen and would this be a city you’d like to visit?
