On our drive from the airport to the apartment the previous evening I was really struck with just how many people bicycle in Denmark. I guess it is something I had always heard but to see the throngs of cyclists, the dedicated lanes, and the incredible number of bicycles locked up and leaning against every building was really eye-opening.
We only had two days to spend in Copenhagen so some of my plans for Denmark had to be shelved. I had really wanted to try to get to Legoland. Sure, there’s a Legoland in California. There’s also a Disney theme park in Japan if you catch my meaning. I wanted to go to the original Legoland where LEGO is made. But it was a 2.5 hour train ride one way from Copenhagen.
So we saw some of the urban sights, statues, castles, museums, amusement park and microbreweries. Here are the highlights of the two days.
