COPENHAGEN (PART I).

Two weeks ago I went to Copenhagen with a friend. I`ve never been there before, so I was very excited to discover this city.

I have to say that February isn`t the best month to do a city trip, because it`s very cold, nobody`s outside and it`s getting dark early. Fortunately we had good weather, well let`s say the sun was there but it was very windy and cold! Our favorite place was always inside of a cafe! And Copenhagen has lots of cute cafes, which was amazing! But more about these in another post.

Let`s get some impressions from Copenhagen!

When you think of Copenhagen, or let`s say when I thought of Copenhagen, I always had this last picture on my mind: colorful houses, creeks and boats. I thought THIS was Copenhagen. Colorful houses like in Stockholm and creeks like in Amsterdam. I thought Copenhagen was a mix of these two cities. But I have to disappoint you… There is just one little street that looks like this! At least for me that was rather disappointing!

Furthermore they say that Copenhagen is THE city for architecture enthusiasts. So I had very high expectations! Unfortunately a lot is still in the construction phase. In 2020 they want to finish the modern part of Copenhagen, Ørestad. There is a lot more to come! And once they are finished, I`m surely going back!

In the picture below you can see the opera house by Henning Larsen. A very interesting building with one of the most modern stages on earth!

Ørestad is a part of Copenhagen that is a city within a city. It has a university, school, student house, apartments, office buildings and shops. It`s an architect`s dream! Everything is newly planned, both urban development and buildings. I love the fact that they work a lot with water and bridges. Like this they build a friendly space that surely gets used a lot in summer. But also in winter, it untightens the urbanistic atmosphere.

The picture above shows the facade of a student home called Tietgenkollegiet. The architects are Lundgaard and Tranberg. It has the form of a circle and in the middle there is a green courtyard that can be used by all the students. It`s a special example of a building that manages to establish communication between its inhabitants.

And that`s it for today! I`ll show you more pictures of my Copenhagen trip soon. So stay tuned!

I would love to hear if you have been to Copenhagen! What did you like the most? Were there some things you would like to recommend?

Love, Caroline ♥

    WIe schön! Das erinnert mich an unsere Kopenhagen-Reise vor ein paar Jahren. Bei uns wars auch total kühl und regnerisch, aber wir haben die Stadt trotzdem sehr genossen. Ich liebe die vielen gemütlichen Kaffeehäuser :)
    Alles Liebe,

      Ich glaub es is eher ne Sommerstadt, weil die Leute sich dann viel draußen aufhalten. Aber wie du sagst, die Kaffeehäuser sind natürlich auch im Winter herrlich :)
      Schönen Sonntag,
      Caroline

    I’m sorry you didn’t love Copenhagen! I was there last September and it was lovely. I had been there a few times as a kid but never as an adult until this summer. Having come straight from Italy it was quite a change in temperature but it wasn’t terribly cold. My boyfriend and I had such a great time. I wish I could remember the names of all of the places we went. Did you get a chance to go to Christiana? It is a fascinating place though I’m told it can be dangerous.

    I’m really enjoying your blog! Thanks for sharing.

      Hi Emma!
      I have to go back to Copenhagen in summer, I think I`ll like it more then :)
      I have been to Christiana and I didn`t know that it could be dangerous, but I have to say that I didn`t feel secure. It`s a completely other world!
      I`m so happy you found my blog. Hope to “see” you more often again around here :)
      xx Caroline
