Time for another part - this time from Strøget in the Old Town

Strøget is the overall name for the longest and largest pedestrial shopping area in Europe

Here you can find just about everything you would want, only real problems is the crowds as the streets tends to be really crowded and move way longer than what I'm confortable with..
This walk gonna cover the main part, but if you find yourself in the area don't miss the cute sidstreets..


We start of at the City Hall Square and move North to the Kings Square.. the entrence..




Here we go








Gammeltorv Square




Nytorv Square








Sidestreet






Amagertorv Square


















And we're back out into the modern car dependant world..


Have a nice weekend guys!

Time for the final part - this time from the old Christianshavn District

This old habour district is known for it's old traditional buildings, it's canals and it's laid back lifestyle..


























Trying to pick up girls at the bridge




Cozy cafe




Crossing Torvegade


















Tourists cruise


Hitting the harbour - Habour bus passing the Royal Library


Looking South


Looking North


Royal Library "Den Sorte Diamant" ( "the Black Diamond" )


Thanks all folks.. for this time..

Went out and took some snaps today..


We'll start out by a trip up the new 'Wheel of Copenhagen' - the largest Ferris wheel in Northern Europe

It's unclear if it will become perminant - so far it's only here for 3 months, but if a success there's a good chance they'll let it stay

The glass was pretty dirty and very reflective so not very camera firendly, so don't expect too much in terms of quality, but on a plus side you get never seen before angles


Anyways enough chatter, it's time for some pics!

It's located in Downtown right next to the Palads Cinema complex..


Here we go














S-Train below..


Tivoli Gardens


































And that's it..


A nice new attraction with a good view over the city - I hope it stays!

Time for another part.. this time a walk down Amagerbrogade - the "mainstreet" of the Amagerbro District



I'm honestly not the biggest fan of the place, like my own district it's primarily residential are the shops found here and the shops found everywhere..

Never the less there are a few cool brick buildings, so here we go..



Sidestreet






































Coo coo ca chuu!

Time for the last part from yesterday - nothing major but a brief visit to the Radisson SAS Scandinavia Hotel and it's new glass friends



With 86m it's the tallest hotel in the city.. and will hopefully soon be extended with another 40m and covered in glass..


























That's all folks!

Downtown












The City Hall Square








Rundetårn Observation Tower

Time for another part, this time Nyhavn in the Old Town

And yes I know I've covered this spot many times before, but I love the place so bear with me



Starting out at Kongen's Nytorv


Here we are..










Arghhh these new small electrical buses now covers small streets where their larger counterparts don't fit and the lack of a real engine means their are virtually silent so they sneak up on you and kill you the second you aren't looking.. or something like that ( in any case watch your back! )




The habour


My mates ( and fellow scraper forum members ) having a couple beers in the sun..


The canal was btw dug by Swedish POWs in 1671


Finito..

Time for the final part from Saturday..

This time a trip up in Rundetårn ( the Round Tower ) as the sun sets over the city

This old observatory was build in 1637 by King Christian IV and do still offer probable the best view over the Old Town










































That's all for this time - have a great fall guys!

Taxies here comes in all sorts of colours..

They are usually covered in ads, but some companies prefer the simple grey look..

I prefere the ad covered ones
