Now I first must mention that Buzzfeed is the best resource when it comes to travel, especially for lists about the best Hot Chocolate in the world because they know what’s up. In order to beat the lines and guarantee a spot we began the morning at Conditori La Glace getting chocolate wasted on the best hot chocolate I’ve ever had (also the most expensive). The bakery is the oldest in Copenhagen and in order to get hot chocolate, you must eat in. They bring you a pot and dish of fresh whipped cream (that looks like marshmallows when scooped into the cocoa) and you are able to get a free refill if you can handle it (which we did). Basically it tastes like liquid chocolate and is heaven in a cup.
Anyways, we went from there to the Post & Tele museum and saw plenty of old stamps and technology along with newer items like an original iPhone and Motorola Razor in a display case. There was also a little recording studio and Heidi and I created a mix under our DJ personas but the email feature didn’t work so unfortunately that bit of perfection is lost in the digital stratosphere.
Continuing along, we stopped and explored ‘Little Amsterdam’ (Nyhavn) and a few other areas on our way to see the Little Mermaid statue.
We continued on for a LONG walk up to Superkilen Park which is created with bits and pieces from around the world. Playing around like kids on the swing set and hammock, we walked through the colorful park and then made a stop at Joe & the Juice. Now not only does Copenhagen have great food, they also have a lot of fresh juice.
A green juice and ginger shot later it was back over to Torvehallerne for some Smørrebrød also known as an open faced sandwich. It is a traditional lunch dish, although it was more of a dinner for us, and was incredible. There are all different types available and people will eat anywhere from 1 slice to 3 or 4 depending on appetite. Basically it is buttered rye bread with some form of topping (we both had fish with honey mustard type of sauce).
We then went to pick up our bags from the hotel and explore the city center a bit more before heading to Tivoli (more on this in the next post).
