(filler until biking season begins)
We arrived at Copenhagen a couple of days before our Highland cruise began. Our first exploration was the canal area with the picturesque houses and working ships.
Both sides of the canal were colorful, so we walked both sides.
"Walked both sides". Although our hotel wasn't but about a mile from the canal, we took a taxi to the canal.
Cost was about $12 so wasn't too bad.
We ended our fabulous walk on the far end of the canal, so hailed another cab to return to the hotel. Added about a mile, but this time our cab was $28. We concluded that it must be about $12 a mile. Anyone with a different experience?
Palace Hotel where we stayed was in the central part of the city which made getting around easy.
City Hall was about 1 1/2 blocks from the hotel.
Tivoli is a amusement park that rivals Disneyland. Walt Disney visited Tivoli several times before building Disneyland and modeled "his" signature castle after the castle in Tivoli.

Next day we visited the National Museum which was "right around the corner" from our hotel. Any museum is one of Christine's must-see places.

Last shot of Palace hotel. A historic and great place to stay if you are headed to Copenhagen. And, as a bonus, just to the right of the hotel was a little Lebanese eating place with some of the best shawarma and hummus we've ever had.
Next day, with full bellies, we boarded our cruise ship for the rest of our adventure.
