En fin dag for en båttur med DFDS til København.
I København skulle vi bli 2 netter på hotell Opera,
så båten tilbake til Oslo
Fint på dekk på sånne sommerdager.
(Danish: København [kʰøpm̩ˈhaʊ̯ˀn] (listen)) is
the capital and most
populous city of Denmark. As of July 2018, the city has a population of 777,218
(616,098 in Copenhagen Municipality, 103,914 in Frederiksberg Municipality, 43,005 in
Tårnby Municipality, and 14,201 in Dragør Municipality). It forms the core of
the wider urban area of Copenhagen (population 1,320,629) and the Copenhagen
metropolitan area (population 2,057,737). Copenhagen is situated on the eastern coast
of the island of Zealand; another small portion of the city is located on Amager,
and it is separated from Malmö, Sweden, by the strait of Øresund.
The Øresund Bridge connects the two cities by rail and road.
Originally a Viking fishing village established in the 10th century in the vicinity of what
is now Gammel Strand, Copenhagen became the capital of Denmark in the early 15th century.
in the 17th century it consolidated its position as a
regional centre of power with its
institutions, defences and armed forces. After a plague outbreak and fire in the 18th century, the
city underwent a period of redevelopment. This included construction of the prestigious district
of Frederiksstaden and founding of such cultural institutions as the Royal Theatre and the Royal
Academy of Fine Arts. After further disasters in the early 19th century when Horatio Nelson
attacked the Dano-Norwegian fleet and bombarded the city, rebuilding during the Danish
Golden Age brought a Neoclassical look to Copenhagen's architecture. Later, following the
Second World War, the Finger Plan fostered the development of housing and businesses along
the five urban railway routes stretching out from the city centre.
Først en liten tur innom Strøget.
Copenhagen's largest shopping area is centered around Strøget in the heart of the city.
Strøget is one of Europe's longest pedestrian streets with a wealth of shops,
from budget-friendly chains to some of the world's most expensive brands.
The stretch is 1.1 kilometers long and runs from City Hall Square (Rådhuspladsen)
to Kongens Nytorv.
Strøget is a nickname from the 1800s and covers the streets Frederiksberggade,
Nygade, Vimmelskaftet and Østergade and Nytorv square, Gammeltorv Square
and Amagertorv Square. (24. mars 2020)
Så skulle vi til Christiansborg slott.
Men like ved Christiansborg legger kanalbåtene til.
Det var flott vær for en båttur, så vi gikk ombord.
At Langelinje Pier you will find one of Copenhagen's most famous tourist attractions:
The sculpture of The Little Mermaid. 23 August 2013 she turned 100 years old.
Unveiled on 23 August 1913, The Little Mermaid was a gift from Danish brewer
Carl Jacobsen to the City of Copenhagen.
The sculpture is made of bronze and granite and was inspired by Hans Christian Andersen’s
fairy tale about a mermaid who gives up everything to be united with a young, handsome
prince on land.
Turen gikk under mange lave broer.
Etter disse 2 broene var det i tillegg en
90 graders sving.
En utfordring med de lange kanalbåtene.
Det var en fin tur med en flink guide.
Etter kanalturen gikk vi til Runde Tårn.
The Round Tower is one of the most Denmark’s best-known and most visited edifices.
The foundation stone was laid on 7/7 1637 and five years later the Round Tower was
finished as the first part of the Trinity Complex, which was designed to accommodate
three things: the Observatory at the top of the tower, the University Library above the
Trinity Church and the church itself below.
The Round Tower is built by King Christian IV, who constructed its round walls in the
royal colours yellow and red. The King himself also sketched the famous golden rebus
on the front of the tower: Lead, God, the right teachings and justice into the heart of
King Christian IV.
experience the king’s private writing cabinet, his
bathroom, and see wax figures of former
royal inhabitants.Rosenborg also houses an exquisite collection of Flora Danica and one of the
world’s finest Venetian glass collections, both set in tower chambers.
See Denmark's crown jewels
The crowns of the Danish kings and queens are kept in special vaults and are embellished
with table-cut stones, enamel and gold ornamentation.
The crown jewels primarily consist of four garnitures: a diamond set, a ruby set,
a pearl set, and an emerald set – the emeralds being among the world’s finest.
Rosenborg Castle has a sister museum at Amalienborg Palace displaying royal history
from the mid 19th century unto today.
Portraits of Caroline Mathilde and Struensee. (24. mars 2020)
|Vi brukte ganske
lang tid i parken og hagen rundt slottet.
Da vi skulle kjøpe inngangsbilletter var klokka kvart over 4.
Slottet stengte klokka 5.
Så vi ble anbefalt å komme igjen en annen dag.
Tre kvarter var alt for lite mente billettselgeren, og det var vel riktig.
|Vi gikk tilbake til
hotellet for å slappe litt av før middagen.
Middag spiste vi i Nyhavn.
Especially during summer, Nyhavn is the perfect place to end a long day.
With a cold one on the quay like the locals, or at one of the many restaurants.
Originally, Nyhavn was a busy commercial port where ships from all over the
world would dock.
The area was packed with sailors, ladies of pleasure, pubs and alehouses.
Today the beautiful old houses have been renovated and restaurants dominate
the old port. Nyhavn is filled with people enjoying the relaxed atmosphere by
the canal, jazz music and great food.

1 Vår Frelser kirke, opp i tårnet
2. Amalienborg slott

Vår Frelser kirke
The new architect on the project was Lauritz de Thurah.
He soon abandoned van Haven's original design in favour of his own project that was
approved by the King in 1749.
Three years later the spire was finished and the King climbed the tower at a ceremony
on 28 August 1752.
There is a long-lived urban legend stating that the architect killed himself by jumping
from the top of the spire, when he realised that the spiral turns the wrong way -
anticlockwise - around.
This is not about Lambert van Haven, since the spire was added to the church almost
50 years after his death, but the designer of the spiral spire, Laurids de Thurah.
There is no truth in the myth though, since Thurah died in his bed seven years after the
spire was completed, and there is nothing in the records that indicates that he should
have been unhappy with his work in any way. (24. mars 2020)
Utsikten fra tårnet er fin.
Det er langt ned.
Vi trengte en hvil etter alle trappetrinna.
Like ved kirken ligger er koselig sted som heter River.
Vi tok en øl hver, og et wienerbrød.
Vi var akkurat ferdige, og skulle gå videre da uværet kom.
Regn, hagl, lyn og torden. Godt vi var kommet ned fra kirketårnet.
Trivelig tur med kanalbåten.
Uværet varte ganske lenge.
Vi ble på River til det var over, tok en varm kakao med krem.
Selv om det hadde sluttet å regne da vi gikk fra River, ble vi fort våte.
Derfor gikk vi innom hotelletfor å skifte bukse og sokker.
Så fortsatte rundturen vår
Marmorkirken ved Amalienborg
Frederiks Kirke (Marmorkirken)
The awe-inspiring Marble Church with the characteristic copper green dome
has to be one of the most impressive churches of the city - and is definitely home to
one of the best views in town.
The church lies beautifully in line with Amalienborg castle and The Opera in the
middle of the elegant area of Frederiksstaden. In fact the official name of the
church is Frederik's Church.
The Marble Church has an interesting story. Presided by King Frederik V the
foundation stone was laid in 1749 as part of a grand plan of making a new city
district called Frederiksstaden.
A capsized project
The architect Nicolai Eigtved died in 1754 and the French architect
Jardin continued the building after a revised drawing.
The work now proceeded at snail's pace and owing to a squeeze in the
funding the completion of the building was postponed several times.
The building was not resumed until late 1800's for the church to be finally
inaugurated in 1894.
Today the church seeks to be a modern city church and thus the church room
is open to the public every day.
There is a magnificent view from the dome, which can be visited at 1 pm every day
during the summer months and the same hours in the weekends of the rest of
the year. (24. mars 2020)
Fra Amalienborg gikk vi videre til Rosenborg Slott.
Denne gang var vi i både skattkammeret og selve slottet.
Fredag 27. juni 2014
Siste dag i København for denne gang. Vi gikk en tur på Strøget.
Shoppingen begrenset seg til engenser.
En tur på konditori ble det også.
Danmarksturen ble avsluttet med lunsj på Højbro Plads.
På båten ble det fin middag på Marco Polo.
