We had a late flight to Copenhagen and arrived just before midnight so we had one day to see some of the sights like the picturesque Nyhaven (New Harbour), the 17th-century waterfront, canal and entertainment district, where Danish author, Hans Christian Anderson lived for some years. We hiked around the city and found The Little Mermaid bronze statue by Edvard Eriksen. The sculpture is displayed on a rock by the waterside at the Langelinie promenade in Copenhagen, Denmark. It is 1.25 metres tall and weighs 175 kilograms. -wiki
Copenhagen is a quaint, pretty city with numerous construction projects going on. The subway system is clean and on-time but it was difficult, at times, to understand the logic of how things operate here. The language is hard but most people can speak English. It's also a very expensive city so be prepared to pay through the nose for everything! However, the parks are free and full of greenery and life so put on your hiking shoes and breath in the Copenhagen air! Sometimes the rain hits unexpectedly and you might need to channel your inner 'Dali' and invent a rain hat like I did!!
