I’ve just about finished my scrapbook from the Baltic cruise, so it’s on my mind and I’m ready to share. Here’s what I suggest seeing if you have just 2 days in Copenhagen.
What to Do/See in 2 Days
My husband and I arrived early Wednesday morning and caught up with our friends who’d arrived the night before at the hotel. We showered in their room (our room wasn’t ready yet) and set out on this plan. Unfortunately it started raining just before lunch on Thursday, so we gave up on the last few places. I’d definitely like to go back and check out Copenhagen further.
Frederiksborg Castle. “King Christian IV’s magnificent renaissance castle in Hillerød north of Copenhagen was built in the beginning of the 17th century. In the following centuries the castle provided the setting for important ceremonial events, first and foremost the anointing of absolute monarchs. Today the castle has been transformed into a national historical museum.” (VisitCopenhagen.com) It is a really gorgeous castle, so definitely go if you like castles and/or photography. We took the S-train, line E to Hillerod, from Copenhagen (~40 mins) and then a local bus (701, 702, 703, 325), which was included in the Copenhagen Card (~5 mins). It was super easy, especially since the bus driver spoke English and assured us we were on the right bus and told us when to get off.
