Tomorrow, a partial lockdown begins in Copenhagen, with restaurants, entertainment venues, schools, and workplaces going totally digital. It’s a sad day in the city, but we have been extremely fortunate to have a full autumn without a lockdown! And the city looks beautiful as ever, so lockdown walks are going to be lovely. So, what better way to kick off the Christmas-themed posts than with a dazzling array of Christmas-lights pictures at the beautiful Nyhavn?! It’s been a full half year since I shared photos from this lovely area, which in non-corona times would be absolutely teeming with tourists. This year the area is emptier than usual (but still quite a lot of pedestrians), and the Christmas market was of course cancelled…but it’s still looking lovely with all the decorations that have been put up. Have a look below 🙂
Welcome to another ‘Sunday Museum’! This will be the final instalment of my entries on Frederiksborg Slot (click here to see the castle chapel and here for the gardens). The inside of this castle will show you why this place rivals the ornateness of Versailles – there are so many different rooms, decorations, and details that get lost in this big place. I did try to capture some of the details that drew my eye, so have a look below and watch the details get progressively more complex!
I’m still not caught up on all my autumn-themed pictures…but I’ve decided to squeeze in a couple more autumn posts before the Christmas posts kick in 🙂 I took a day trip to Roskilde one weekend a while back and took some photos – the weather really wasn’t great, but there were a couple moments where the sun peeked out. It’s a cute, quiet little city – you can definitely walk around the town centre in a couple of hours. It was totally dead when we arrived (it was a Sunday) but nevertheless it was nice to explore a new place! I loved all the brickwork and the strong reds and yellows in the town surroundings.
I was going to share a ‘Sunday Museum’ with you today, but it doesn’t feel right to put off sharing these set of photos before December – so here we are. This is definitely one of my favourite parks in the city – it’s on my way to work, so I often stroll through the park if it’s a nice day. It’s absolutely beautiful with the yellows of autumn displayed in full force – take a look below.
I’ve already shared Nordhavn with you before – I went back during golden hour/sundown and wow, it was even more pleasant to walk around than the previous time around. I just love how even the incomplete, construction-site look is part of the aesthetic of the neighbourhood.
As December is fast approaching, I just thought I would share these autumn themed pictures with you from a weekend trip to Odense. I didn’t take very many photos because the weather/lighting wasn’t too great, but I think it captures the Danish countryside vibe (mind you…Odense is still a city) – tranquil canals, forest walks, cottages peeking through the trees.
I am very behind on uploading photos still, but I’m super excited to share some of the shots I’ve been taking recently – if you enjoy the photos on my blog, rest assured they will get better and better! And I will have lots of magical, Christmas-themed posts ready to go in December so please do check back frequently 🙂
Last Sunday, I posted some images of the Frederiksborg Castle chapel. This week I’ll share with you some of the images from the castle ground gardens – it’s totally free to walk around and honestly I was super impressed with the grounds. In the past I’ve visited Versailles, in France, and I can see why this place is considered the Versailles of Denmark – but I’ll dare say it’s nicer than Versailles. It’s clean, less crowded, doesn’t cost an arm and a leg to get in. Simply a beautiful walk to take on a sunny bright day a short train ride from Copenhagen city centre. Have a look below!
It’s been a while since I’ve done a ‘Sunday Museum’ post! Though today’s post is not exactly a ‘museum’ (more like a castle) I thought it would be nice to share with you these photos of the Frederiksborg Castle chapel. There was a wedding going on the first time I tried to enter the place, but I was patient and waited it out so I could take a peek inside. And I’m glad I did – just look at the place!
Also, stay tuned for more photos from this opulent castle grounds in the coming weeks 🙂
