Copenhagen, Denmark

Copenhagen, Denmark’s capital, sits on the coastal islands of Zealand and Amager. It’s linked to Malmo in southern Sweden by the Öresund Bridge. Indre By, the city’s historic center, contains Frederiksstaden, an 18th-century rococo district, home to the royal family’s Amalienborg Palace. Nearby is Christiansborg Palace and the Renaissance-era Rosenborg Castle, surrounded by gardens and home to the crown jewels.

We had a walking tour from the ship along the docks, saw the famous mermaid, and toured the inner city.  Lots of outdoor eateries and coffee shops!  We ended the day with a canal and river cruise, and were fortunate to see tall ships in port as well as on the move.  Complete with something like 60 sailors in the rigging!

Pictures do not have captions because I don’t remember all the names and I couldn’t spell tham anyway.
