Legs felt a bit like jelly this morning after yesterdays long walk, so I decided to let a boat do the walking for me today. For 70 Dkk (about $12) I jumped aboard a very flat tour boat and listened to the tour guide for an hour as I snapped away with my camera. While the sky was just as blue and clear as yesterday the temperature was a little cooler and being on the water did not help. It was worth while to hear some facts, history and tidbits about the buildings and areas on the tour. I recommend it!
Being on the water gave for some different, beautiful, and more unique views that I would have never been able to capture otherwise.
The tour began in Gammal Strand (Old Beach)
My favorite place in Copenhagen, Nyhavn (New Harbor) I am a sucker for brightly colored buildings in a row.
The path brought us all the way up to see the Little Mermaid statue, but I plan on walking there tomorrow for close photos.
We passed by the Royal palace, the spherical building in the back is the Marble church. This is where the changing of the Royal Guards takes place (From where yesterdays accidentally journey of following the guards began – but I never made it to the palace)
Directly opposite this is a straight on view of the new Opera House, it is larger than it seems with most of the building below ground. (side view)
A church with a tower that you can climb to the top of – look at that spiral stair case along the outside of the tower!
“Mind your head” was the catch phrase of the tour, no wonder the boats are so flat!
Next I wandered down to the Round Tower, which is supposed to be the best view in town.
It didn’t disappoint!
I love seeing all the towers peek over the town.
The inside was just as impressive:
Looking forward to tomorrows adventures!
