Underground in Copenhagen

Copenhagen, Denmark. Two weeks earlier we thought we were headed to Corsica but thanks to a British Airways pilot strike and our flights cancelled we suddenly had an empty weekend to fill. Copenhagen came up cheapest and as we’d only previously been in the bitter winter we were looking forward to a summer visit where things were actually open. First stop was the Cisterns, a subterranean reservoir that once contained the supply of drinking water for the entire city, now a cool art installation where wellies are a must.

We were pretty tired from our 5am start to catch the early flight over but we still got around the majority of the city in the day remembering the main sights from our previous visit.

After exploring the last few corners of the city we finished our trip with a visit to the 2nd oldest amusement park in the world Tivoli Gardens, it even has a wooden rollercoaster with a brake man on the carriage of every ride. The ticket price is pretty expensive but you are able just to pay for entry and if you only want to go on one or two rides like we did it doesn’t work out too bad. The Demon roller coaster that we chose even has an optional virtual reality headset you can wear throughout which I kind of regret not trying now. Really cool to have all this right in the city centre though and ended our weekend trip off in style!
