Copenhagen Canal Tour

It was a sunny but brisk day in Copenhagen. Perfect for a late afternoon canal tour.

Departed from Nyhavn, or new harbor. Now a trendy and tourist area, it used to be a bad section of town.

The Opera House, a gift to the country from Denmark’s richest man.

The National Theater

One of the kings liked Amsterdam so he built canals.

There are lots of low bridges.

You can climb the spire of Our Savior’s Church. Spot the tiny people.

Three entwined dragons top the Borsen, a 17th-century stock exchange. The dragons represent Denmark, Norway, and Sweden.

Back to Nyhavn.

I bought a Copenhagen Card and it includes a free canal tour. It also includes unlimited use of public transport including the train to Roskilde. I did go to Tivoli Gardens. Off to the crown jewels today.
