A visit to the capital of Denmark: Things to do in Copenhagen

Europe, Netherlands

Copenhagen is trying to be the greenest city. There are organic restaurants with free beer in CO2 in their production. Shops, hotels and even hairdressers with the label of “harmless with the environment“. Copenhagen, the Danish capital, leads the way when it comes to caring for the environment and is the city that aims to become the first CO2-free capital by 2025.

At the moment it has become one of the European cities in which more people are cycling and has the record in terms of consumption of organic foods. One of the last measures is to promote the consumption of products grown nearby, since the CO2 emitted to bring, for example, a pineapple from a tropical country is something that can be avoided with the consumption of closeness.

In addition, according to a global study conducted by the World Database of Happiness Denmark is, along with Asian Bhutan, the happiest country in the world. Here are the top things to do in Copenhagen, in addition to being photographed with the famous mermaid:

Rent a bike and go for a ride

There are many points of rent, it’s likely that even in the hotel where you stay you can get one, and it is really nice to stroll through this completely flat and bike-ready capital. Even the City Council puts 2,000 bikes available to its citizens and tourists spread throughout the city.

A guided tour in Kayak

Be eco-friendly and enjoy the architectural gems and historic buildings on a kayak tour through the Christianshavn canals and the Copenhagen harbor. If you get thirsty there is no problem as many of the bars on the canal will serve you a coffee or a beer without having to leave your kayak.

The neighborhood of Christiania

Located in the centre of the city, it is basically a hippie sector outside European laws, in fact, a sign at the entrance indicates that you are leaving the EU. The place was an abandoned military camp that in 1971 was occupied by a large group of hippies; Created a “free state” in the heart of the city of Copenhagen. The experiment resulted in an alternative movement that still exists today, albeit with slight modifications: now, for example, the sale of hard drugs or camping is not allowed. 1000 people live here in their

The experiment resulted in an alternative movement that still exists today, albeit with slight modifications: now, for example, the sale of hard drugs or camping is not allowed. 1000 people live here in their colourful homes. Pay attention to the graffiti, the market, the wall paintings, the Greenland style house and the vegetarian restaurants.

Tivoli Park

Other things you cannot imagine finding in the centre of the city is an amusement park. The beautiful Tivoli Park is more than 100 years old. Here you can enjoy the well-kept gardens, attractions, restaurants, fireworks, outdoor concerts and aquatic shows of lights and colours at night. Its most novel attraction is the Himmelskibe, a carousel of 80 meters in height.

Visit Vor Frelsers Kirke

Vor Frelsers Kirke or Our Savior’s Church is a Baroque tower 90 meters high located in the neighborhood of Christianshavns. You can climb to the tip of your curious spiral dome and enjoy spectacular views of the entire city of Copenhagen.

Nørrebro and organic beer

Nørrebro is a cosmopolitan district where students, artists, and people of all nationalities flock to its attractive bars and cafés and trendy boutiques. The brewery Nørrebro Bryghus is housed in an old factory and has a restaurant with a capacity of 160 people, a bar, and an outdoor patio during the summer months. In April 2009 the first Danish beer free of CO2 emissions was brought to light

Kronborg Castle

In Helsingor, about 45 km from Copenhagen is a place known internationally as the scenario of Hamlet. The impressive Kronborg Castle is built on three islets and was no longer inhabited by the royal family since the late 1600s. No one knows if Shakespeare was in Helsingor when he decided to write Hamlet, but his decision says much of the importance of the castle at that time in which the city was a strategic maritime point.

And of course … the little mermaid

But only to realize that sometimes the most popular tourist attractions are not that amazing. The statue is small and disappoints everyone, but for some reason is among that iconic statue that symbolizes cities like the Statue of Liberty in New York and Christ the Redeemer in Rio de Janerio.

Creepiest Places on Earth

A glacial lake full of human skeletons

In 1942, a man who was hiking through a lake in the Himalayas stumble across a fascinating scene: a shallow glacial lake surrounded by human skeletons. It was until summer, when the glacial lake was melted, when hundred of skeleton appear. Some of these skeletons were in perfect conditions, with flesh and hair still attached. In that very moment, everyone begins to wonder, who or what had killed so many people? Theories ranged from epidemics to ritual suicides.

After a study, scientists have some clues of what probably happen and the most important when. The skeletons were the remains of 200 to 300 people and dated from the 9th century. Short, deep cracks in the skull suggest that all these people may have died in the same way. All of them were hit in the head with rounded objects that weren’t weapons. Scientists concluded that all people were killed by a hailstorm.

Do you want to visit this unique attraction? The best time of the year, is during summer. During summer, when the ice melts, you can see the skeletons that are at the bottom of the lake.

The temple full of rats

Can you believe that a religious and tourist destination is full of rats? There is one and its name is the Temple Karni Mata of India, this temple is plagued with thousands of rodents.

Located in the Thar Desert of Rajasthan, The Rat Temple houses more than 20,000 of rats which can roam freely around this place of worship. Each year, hundreds of thousands of religious pilgrims and tourists, visit the temple, eager to receive the blessings of holy rats.

According to the legend, the stepson of Karni Mata, Hindu deity, drowned in a pond. After this tragically event, Karni Mata asked to the god of death Yama to revive him. The God of death agrees to revive him, but under one simple condition… The stepson and all his caste would reincarnate as rats.

The rats or the “the little kids” are fed milk, grains, coconut shells and special candies. According to locals, the food that rats bite brings good fortune. If you want to visit this creepy place, don’t forget to share the leftovers with these holy creatures.

The Hell on Earth

In 1971, a group of Soviet scientists set up a drilling rig to analyse what they thought was an oil well in the middle of the Karakum Desert in Turkmenistan.

It was true; the underground was an immense natural gas field that collapsed creating a huge crater, swallowing the platform and the scientists’ camp. Fearing the spread of lethal methane gas, scientists decided to set fire to the crater, creating an infernal well right under their feet. They expected the gases to burn off in a few days, but they didn’t. This crater, 30 meters deep, is known as “Door to hell“. That nickname hasn’t stopped the thousands of travellers who visit each year the hell on Earth.

An island of haunted dolls

Due to an unfortunate accident, the beautiful floating gardens of the Isla de Muñecas in México are now the object of horrible nightmares. According to local legend, a girl drowned in the canals of Xochimilco. After her death, a large number of dolls arrive at the coast of the small island.

Tormented that he couldn’t save the girl, the caretaker of the island, Don Juan Santana Barrera, began to hang all the dolls in the trees of the island in memory of the little girl. Over the years, the trees were filled with dolls. For the locals, these dolls are possessed with the spirit of the dead girl, and some witnesses claim to have heard them whisper.

Unfortunately, the story isn’t finished yet. About 50 years ago after picking up dolls and hanging them on the island, Barrera drowned in the same place where the girl died. Since his death in 2001, the island, which is, in fact, a floating garden, has had hundreds of visitors.
