The past week was very relaxed. My boyfriend was visiting me and as I still had to finish my exam on Tesla Motors (yay) we did nothing much exciting during the first couple of days. After handing in my assignment and due to the fact that I only had two classes during the week we had a lot of free time.
First, we went to Christiansborg Slot as I haven’t been there yet. Christiansborg Slot is a palace on the small island Slotsholmen in the centre of Copenhagen. It is the seat of the Danish parliament and also used by the Danish monarch. It was a very beautiful day, the sun was out and it was not cold at all.
Then we went to an exhibition about Tolkien (mentioned here in a previous blogpost). As we were headed to the Royal Arsenal Museum, which is also on Slotsholmen, we also came across a small beautiful garden.
The Tolkien’s Universe exhibition was about Tolkien and more or less based on the movies Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit. However, it was not as exciting as we’d imagined, but we had fun nevertheless and it was free admission, so yeah. And it took us a long time to figure out where the exhibition was located. :D
After the museum we went to a tower where we’d have a beautiful view over Copenhagen. The tower was also located on Slotsholmen and the entrance was free. Funnily enough, we had to go through a security check just like on an airport in order to go up to the platform. The four or five people working there seemed very happy that someone showed up as there were not many people around to go up the tower.
After spending a couple of hours on Slotsholmen, we had dinner at a Burger place near Kongens Nytorv – Cocks & Cows, which was recommended to us by a friend of mine (thanks again, Linda (: ) and which was packed the last time my boyfriend was here. The place is really nice, though a bit expensive. However, it was probably the best vegetarian burger that I have ever had!
As I was about to move places, my bike had to be moved as well. We took the chance and explored my new neighbourhood and found a few nice spots. One of it was the Kalvebod Bølge (Kalvebod Waves), a promenade that was opened in 2013 and its purpose is to reconnect the city with the water. It’s worth a visit!
Later on, as we were already in Christianshavn, we decided to go to the Street Food Market on Papirøen and enjoy Colombian/Thai Food and cakes.
We also spent quite some time in a Lego store…
On Saturday (the last day that my boyfriend was in town) we had lunch at the Street Food market again – there’s just too much delicious food there! Besides, it was the very first time that I tried a Korean dish and of course I’ve already forgotten the name of it. haha. We also treated ourselves to some delicious Apple Crumble Pancakes. YUM!
We had a lovely week together that included a lot of food :)
