The weather was very nice and warm today so it was easy to pick up a bike and go for a ride to try and get a feel for the city. Copenhagen (København, pronounced 'cubenhoun') has many parks, palaces and grand buildings.
This is Bernstorffsparken in the Kommune of Gentofte with the statue of Andreas Peter...
... which houses the Bernstorff Palace built in the middle of the 18th century for Foreign Minister Johann Hartwig Ernst, Count von Bernstorff. In 1842 it was bought by Christian VIII. For many years it was used as a summer residence by Christian IX until his death in 1906. It is now a hotel.
This is Charlottenlund Palace in the middle of Charlottenlund Slotspark. It was built in the early 18th century for Princess Charlotte Amalie, the daughter of Frederick IV of Danmark. In the late 19th century it was rebuilt to reflect the French renaissance style.
On the way to the beach in the neighbourhood of Charlottenlund.
