BREAKFAST AT GROD should be as famous as the phrase ‘breakfast at tiffanys’. I never imagined that healthy could taste so delicious. I was totally bowled over by their amazing breakfast menu and the awesome quality they provide. Located at a number of places, we went to one located in Frederiksberg.
Located at the heart of Copenhagen, we had lunch at this tasteful café. Filled with authentic Danish cuisine, it has a fresh menu which imbibes natural ingredients only. We had the SMØRREBRØD along with yummy homemade shakes. The children menu was outstanding and my little one enjoyed it thouroughly.
The unique and extremely delicious combination of waffles and ice-cream is what drew our attention to this busy waffle bakery store at Nyhavn. Its located just in the middle of the quay giving the visitor’s a sweet surprise during their stroll.
The Bronx Burger Bar Frederiksberg
Yummy burger and potato fries for the kid and cranberry tossed chicken burger for us. What more could we ask for after a long and tiring day.
Literally, the most happening and awesome place for all age-groups is Nyhavn. Easily accessible from any point of the city, this place is bustling with tourists and locals throughout the year.
We were lucky enough to
visit this place during a sunny summer day and we felt that the whole of
Copenhagen was here.
See lines of beautiful historic houses which were constructed hundreds of years ago and are still looking fabulous. Our child was particularly impressed by fleets of boats anchored in the waters.
Sit and relax with drinks while the child eats Nutella pancake
We spent hours sitting idly just absorbing the beautiful surrounding of Nyhavn. The bright sun and cold breeze created the most soothing and satisfying ambience. There were many street vendors nearby offering lip-smacking food.
Have an ice-cream
Waffle ice-cream is a local favorite here and why not. The ice cream is real creamy which leaves us wanting more. At the middle of the quay, there is the famous Vaffelbageren which has an exotic range and awesome delivery time.
Watch beautiful artists performing
There is no other place to absorb the culture than here. We saw artists painting across the canal and their art was beautiful. Some musicians were also performing which added to the beauty of this picturesque place.
Tie a lock and make a wish
We had specially brought locks to hang them from the railing across the canal but we were not sure and therefore left it. But one can always discover awesome messages around these locks and enjoy the fancy.
As this canal offer panoramic view
of the city, it is imperative to go on a boat ride here and enjoy the place at
more peace in the waters.
Being the second oldest amusement park in Europe, one cannot be disappointed in this whimsical fascinating place. With a plethora of activities for each age-group, this place is a must visit when in the Scandinavian region. One can easily see movie coming to life here : old couples sitting in the parks enjoying the scenery, teen couples walking hand in hand, children brisking here and there and what not.
We spent an entire day in this beautiful place and were not tired. One of the best things about this place is its timing. It closes a little late in summers offering the visitors to utilize their otherwise wasted time (as shops and malls close early).
Being with a three year old means lot of kiddie rides and I must say we were not disappointed. Our little one enjoyed : The Vintage Cars (on-track cars), The Wood Carousel, The Dragon Boats, The Elf Train, The Fun House, The Little Dragon (swing ride), The Little Pilot, The Music Carousel. We missed the famous Rutschebanen (wooden roller coaster), as well as the the Vertigo. (Note : Running nose and high fever correspond to that face 😉
But the highlight of the day was when he engaged in a duck hunting game and surprised us by winning the best prize (for picking up three ducks in a row which had red mark in the bottom). I was supremely elated but it was short-lived as he chose a colorful lizard as his prize (note : he could have picked any toy from that shop but he picked the most common soft-toy). We did not push him to pick any other toy as it was his choice.But hey- he won !!
The utilities were clean and moderate.Overall a great park specially for the kids. And for adults (if you don’t like the rides and are there just for their kids, you can always go shopping at the famous Illums Bolighus store which offers the exclusive range of Danish and international design. We bought some amazing souvenirs from there.
There is an array of dining options but we chose Joe and the juice as it had amazing juice range which we certainly needed after hustling through so many rides.
Though I’m penning down my journey details after a gap of 6 months (since my European adventure with my little one), it feels like yesterday. We visited a total of 6 countries including Denmark, Sweden, Finland, Belgium, Netherlands and Estonia. It was a beautiful trip with varied experiences.
Historic windmills with distinctive green wooden houses made for the perfect postcard pictures. Being in one of the oldest amusement park has a different impact altogether. We sailed through the waters of Baltic Sea. We cycled our way through Copenhagen and met lovely people in Malmo.
The trip was a blessing as I met my college friends too after a long time. Life has been extremely busy and I hope to be regular in my blogging and fill in all the details of my trips before taking another one.
Apart from Europe, we went to Kerala – the bliss of being in backwaters. It was full of peace and harmony and soul relishing experience. The annual trips to both Jaipur and Goa proved why we go there every year and still find so many new things to do.
Overall, the year 2018 was a wonderful year with trips packed back to back. Hoping the same for 2019.
