Day 12: Copenhagen

Back in Denmark…

We left Stockholm on the 8:21 train and enjoyed a pleasant ride through the rolling hills and lakes of the Swedish countryside. 

We arrived in Copenhagen a bit after 1:30 in the afternoon. It was a short walk from the station to our hotel (same one as before). We then grabbed a quick bite for lunch and toured the interior of the splendid City Hall, which our hotel rooms overlook. 

From there, we crossed the street to spend the rest of the day at Tivoli Gardens. With the unlimited rides wristband, it costs about $50 per adult (kids 7 and under are approx $15 less, as they only need the unlimited rides portion of the fee). While clearly a money-making venture, Tivoli feels far less commercial and more “organic” in its development than Disney or Universal Studios. It’s more like a permanent fair (with better rides and food) set in a pretty park. 

Some of the buildings are geographically themed, but it doesn’t really have “lands” like amusement parks at home do. 

The girls enjoyed the rides…

I enjoyed the beer (and gourmet licorice)…

We all enjoyed the food (eating dinner at the German beer garden, where the wurst is the best)…

At seven, Emerson is now at a great age for (re)-visiting Tivoli. She absolutely loved it (would undoubtedly happily spend tomorrow there too), and we really enjoyed it as well. It’s a wonderful place. 

We returned to the hotel (only a block away from Tovoli too) around 9:30pm.
