Our second day in Copenhagen began with an early visit to the beautiful and colorful Nyhavn. I just fell in love with these vibrant houses from the 17th and 18th century.

They’re lined up on both sides of the canal, one side more vibrant, the other one more subtle in colors. It was windy and cold but we couldn’t resist so we walked all around the waterfront.

Aside from the vibrant houses of Nyhavn, what I loved the most was the fact that it was filled with old wooden ships. In my opinion, they only add to the charm of the harbor.

Next on the itinerary was the Botanical Garden. At that point, we were in dire need of some greenery amid this cold morning weather.

And greenery we got! In fact, it was like stepping into a jungle because of the humidity and the tall palm trees. You can climb up the spiral stairs and take a walk around the greenhouse.

Soon after that, we grabbed lunch at the famous food market Torvehallerne. The rain stopped for a few minutes, enough for us to explore a few colorful streets.

Even on an overcast day, it’s still incredibly easy to find colors in Copenhagen!

Next up was observing the roofs of Copenhagen so we headed to Tårnet, a place I highly recommend!

Not only do you get to see the whole city (and on clear days Sweden) but you get to do it for free. And the view is incredible from all four sides of the tower.

Ny Glyptoteket

After a bit of wandering through canals, we arrived at our next stop, Ny Carlsberg Glyptoteket.

Even though this was a planned visit, we still didn’t expect to spend three hours here! But it was the perfect place to pass an afternoon in.

The museum’s collection is enormous and impressive. Mesopotamia, Egypt, Greece and Rome together with French and Danish 19th century art.

After that amazing museum visit, we once again went to Paludan & Bog Café, this time for dinner. A few more strolls around the city center then a good night’s sleep before out last day in this gorgeous city!
