Copenhagen – Part 1

We were excited to be in Copenhagen, home of our Princess Mary, and of our favourite Danish series, The Killing. Our first impression is of a cosmopolitan, and very Northern European city. Like in neighbouring Germany and Netherlands, there was a large volume of bikes on the streets. I was quite impressed with the number of bikes on display at Copenhagen’s central railway station.

And at one of the city centre bus stations. I’ve never seen a double-storey bike-park before.

Can you imagine Sydneysiders riding bikes to Central to catch a train? They’d either be run over before they arrived, or the ‘Grey Ghosts’ would fine them on the spot for parking.

Elsewhere in the city centre, there was lots of bike riding on cobble-stoned streets.

And lots of bike parking in the pretty parks.

Apparently even the Danish Royal Family use their bikes to get around. Can you imagine the British Royal Family doing that? Or indeed, would Mr Abbot?
