Copenhagen is the city of vikings and has a lot to offer for the casual jet setter. My brother and I will take you on a unique tour through the city and list our favorite spots.
The Van Vuuren brothers are on the loose in Copenhagen! My brother and I decided to take a long weekend and explore this beautiful city located in Denmark near the Swedish city of Malmo.

We went sightseeing during day time and explored typical tourist places such as the Nyhavn, Amalienborg Castle, Christiansborg Palace, National Museum of Denmark, St. Alban's Anglican Church, The Marble Church, Tivoli, Kobmagergade Shopping-street and the Little Mermaid.
Danish people like the Swedish are very humble and friendly. We also noticed a lot of good looking people. Scandinavia must breed many fashion models.
We ran into a Christmas Market while walking towards Nyhavn. We bought some Glogg at the market to take with us on our journey. Glogg is a delicious warm spiced wine which is a common Scandinavian drink during the winter months.
We had a breathtaking view of the city from the Rundetårn which is the oldest observatory tower in Europe, established on 1642. We did notice a lot of industry and factories around the city which I found odd since usually those are designated to a specific area.
Another place we visited was the headquarters of Mærsk which has been the largest container ship operator and supply vessel operator in the world since 1996. Also known for their flagship the Emma Mærsk.
In less than 2 months I walked into two a Tesla stores, in Copenhagen and last month in Miami, what are the odds. Especially since it was only there for 4 days and moves around Europe promoting their new vehicle: Model S. Maybe a sign...
Copenhagen has repeatedly been recognized as one of the cities with the best quality of life. It is also considered one of the world's most environmentally friendly cities. The water in the inner harbour is clean and safe for swimming.
36% of all citizens commute to work by bicycle. Every day, they cycle a combined 1.2 million km. Quiet impressive if you tell me.
Unfortunately we didn't have enough time to visit Christiania, the hippy town of Copenhagen and the Øresund Bridge, the longest road and rail bridge in Europe, connecting Copenhagen with Malmö, the third largest city of Sweden.
