On our last day in Copenhagen, we turned left out of the Copenhagen Star Hotel and into the slightly grittier neighborhood of Vesterbro. The streets were lined with various porn shops and liquor stores. This soon gave way to some lovely historic facades.
Kastellet, a star-shaped fortress surrounded by a moat and partially converted into a park.
Serene tufted ducks made their home in the calm water.
We rounded a corner of the fortress path and St. Alban's church came into view. We knew we were nearing the harbour.
A walking path ringed the top of the star-shaped mounds.
We passed a serpentine fountain on the way past St. Albans and toward the harbour.
We admired the garden full of sculptures accompanying the church.
Amalienborg Palace. We wound our way through the free and well-coiffed gardens.
Copenhagen Card for free entry to the museum on site which features reconstructed rooms from the reigns of various Danish monarchs through the centuries. I wouldn't make a special trip to this museum but with the benefits of the Copenhagen Card it's worth popping in for a 30 minutes diversion.
