Another morning – another bike ride to the city. This time we tried to cycle as near to the water as possible. So we reached the city by the harbor, waved the little mermaid hello and had a quick look at Amalienborg. We went along the waterfront and crossed the bridge to the other side of the harbor.
We took a long walk through Christiania and really enjoyed the calmer areas. A true oasis with some really nice houses surrounded by nature in the middle of the city.
We also explored the little islands of Christianshavn and had a break at Paper Island, where we had coffee at Henrik Vibskov’s coffee bar “Den plettende gris” (The spotted Pig). We had so much fun to explore these parts around the harbor and were so thankful for our bikes!
In the afternoon we drove back up to Nørrebro where we walked past the first coffee bar of The Coffee Collective, a Mikkeler bar and some other nice places. But we didn’t stop here – we wanted to see Superkilen, a great urban park which looks like a huge playground not only for kids.
We got hungry and decided to head to Østerbro and find a place for a late lunch / early dinner there. After a nice meal in a burger restaurant we stumbled upon a very sweet street and a historical village in the neighborhood.
We ended the day in Klampenborg which was really near to our camp site. It’s a suburb of Copenhagen with many architechtual projects built by Arne Jacobsen between 1932 and 1936. My favorite parts were the little lifeguard towers at Bellevue Beach.
