A professional event & a seminar brought me again this year to Kopenhagen.
While the city is told to be very nice in summer, the winter is really cold and makes everything look grey & wet. Denmark is a set of islands and a peninsula torn by the winds and the wind turbine posted everywhere don’t deny the fact that this spot is REALLY windy.
Kopenhagen is a royal city and it’s indeed worth going there to visit. While architecture is globally speaking very traditional, there are spots around CPH that are simply nothing else than an architectural playground. Steel, stone, concrete & glass are the main decor for the area of Örestadt. Pretty cold and no trees there. Huge contrast with the city center.
Denmark is very ecologic minded and the Danes are mostly on bikes. There are rules to be respected and no one crosses when the light is red and certainly not outside the pedestrian crosswalks. Food is healthy, you find organic stuff everywhere and fish is available plenty. Housing is warm and comfortable, the construction style is made to last and Danes are adepts of a clean & zen interior style. Everything is solid but mess is hard to do as there’s nothing superfluous to mess up 🙂
This doesn’t change the fact that prices are pretty high for everything but the state is offering a lot. Globally speaking, kids in Denmark are probably among the safest and most supported. Food was very enjoyable but don’t go there for Pasta or other foreign food as they don’t know much about it. It’s better to enjoy local stuff and trust me, there’s enough.
