24 Hours in Copenhagen

The Little Mermaid

My Country #72

A few weeks ago, I visited Copenhagen for the first time and basically had 24 hours since my flight from Amman landed at 1:40pm and my flight to Helsinki the following day departed at 1:40pm. I really had limited time although I was still able to maximize my exploration of the city, made easier by the fact that the Christiansborg Palace I had planned to visit was closed (it is closed on Mondays from October to April). I guess I really have to come back and visit this beautiful city again during the summer time. In case you are planning to visit Copenhagen in the future, here are some of my travel tips.

*I visited Copenhagen again in August 2020 during the pandemic and was able to visit the Christiansborg Palace and take a boat tour among others ๐Ÿ˜‰
