Scandi cool 💎 Copenhagen

Photo journal of Copenhagen, Denmark

1. Copenhagen Botanical Gardens

More than 13,000 species of plants, an immense garden and the cutest glasshouse.

2. Freetown Christiania

Story goes that a group of hippies squatted what used to be a military base in the 70s, creating this independent community, which has survived until today. They are famous for their Green Light District, where cannabis is widely available, but really it’s the whole autonomous neighbourhood that makes it worth a visit. Some would argue that for an anarchist area they have a lot of rules; still, their rules are pretty simple: Have fun; Don’t run (they get raided often, so running usually means they have to run too); No photos (cannabis is still illegal there).

3. Nyhavn

The 17th Century canal may be a tourist trap, but it’s well worth a visit and it has the cutest buildings.

4. Tivoli Gardens

The famous gardens are home to second largest amusement park in the world – the entry is not free, but the rides are pretty cheap if you buy multiple and the place is just beautiful at night (plus you get to laugh at yourself in the funhouse mirrors).

5. Strøgert, Architecture, and Design

Strøgert is a large pedestrian area that includes Amagertorv, the most central square in the city centre, and lots of shops. The rest is collection of other cool places around town.

If you’re gonna look at the bridge, you might as well cross it…30-minute trip by train.
