Its spring 2017 in Copenhagen. 

The old city with squares, parks and canals are full of people walking, playing, eating on café and outdoor restaurants enjoying the sun, warm weather and the beautiful flowers and tree all over.

Residents and tourists of all ages make fun and enjoying all activities in this beautiful city so close to the sea Øresund.

 

I visit the city 3. may 2017 and here are my impressions.

Follow me through the old city on a 2-3 hours walk from Nørreport Station in north to Christianshavn Metro station in south and then passing the new walk and bike slide bridge “Inderhavnsbroen” from Christianshavn (Greenland Square) to Nyhavn.

Nyhavn – spring 2017 – cosy danish atmosphere of love, joy and fun:

New Harbour, Nyhavn built as a canal in 1671-73:

View to right on photo below the eastern/northern side of the canal, “the sunny side” with residence houses and former storehouses and the wharf (bolwark) of the canal King Christian 5 built in 1671-73. The canal is 400 meter long, 25 meter wide and 3 meter deep. The king wanted to stimulate trade and to get a direct acces to the new central square Kongens Nytorv. From now on merchantships could do their loading and piloting close to the merchantyards- and houses in Nyhavn.

I hope that you have enjoyed my impressions on my afternoon visit to Copenhagen 3. may 2017.

I live 60 km north of Copenhagen close to Kattegat Sea and enjoy to visit Copenhagen once a week.

 

Open your mind and spirit to the beauty of life and meet all people of all ages and all nations with an open heart full of love and forgiveness.
