David purchased “Copenhagen Card” on line and this gives access to public transport, as well as free entry to many attractions - we need to be here 6 months to see them all! The Bus stops outside our Hotel and only a 6 minute ride to inner City. For us first timers it isn’t easy to negotiate crossing busy roads - apart from cars driving on opposite side of road, there are also crowded bike lanes on both sides of the road, and we continually mistake them for footpaths and hear bicycle bell warnings! We also trip over the one brick height that defines these areas! This is going to be a difficult day!!
Limited signage. However, locals are so helpful - just stand on a corner with a Map, and someone will stop and ask if we need help. We met so many people today!
Eventually found bus needed to take us to the Canal ride, but then signage disappeared. We walked, and walked. Also discovered that Public toilets cost more than $1 each, so we spent $6.50 each for a coffee, so we could use their “free” restroom. Bargain!
Loved fantastic Canal trip. Good introduction to the city. Buildings, both old & modern, are fascinating too. Saw Princess Mary’s Palace.
Next, picnic lunch in the park.
Walked to Christiansborg Palace, saw State Rooms, Kitchens and even underground in the Palace where ancient foundations have been discovered.
It is now 9 pm and still quite light outside.
