On the way home from dinner last night we passed this place. Leggo’s flagship store in Denmark. Guess where we are going today? 😳😳
Climbed aboard the canal cruiser, only to discover that due to the high rainfall in the North Sea, high tide was half a metre above the normal tide and therefore he boat was unable to go under many of the bridges. Result was that the trip would be shorter.
This is one of Hans Tholstrup’s boats, that he does those crazy voyages in.
Noma’s Restaurant, which used to be the number one restaurant in the world for 2010, 2011 2012, but is now number 3. Holds four Michelin Stars and one has to book two to three months ahead, and take your bank manager with you.
Headed off to an electrical store to purchase a new heater. Our €9.00 model, purchased in France, has decided to die. May have been an omen. We could use the gas one in Myrtle but it also heats the water at the same time, and as we are in a camp ground we have no need for the hot water.
The French Embassy which is surrounded by flowers.
Heater sorted, back on metro to city square, and stroll down to the Round Tower at
The intriguing thing about this towers is that there are only steps at the very top. The method of climbing to the top is up a spiral ramp, 209 metres long and twists 7.5 times around the hollow core. Word is that the king at the time did not like stairs, so the ramp was built do he could ride his horse up and the queen followed in her carriage.
The centre of the tower is hollow, and in around 1880 a one, August Nielsen, a choir boy, fell the tool room at the top, all of 35 metres, and survived with minor scratches and the loss of two teeth. History shows that we have been in and out of stife ever since, in one form or another.😉😉
The hollow of the tower sits over Denmark’s Point Zero. At the top of the tower there sits an observatory from where the first accurate maps of Denmark were formed in 1841. There is still a telescope, albeit modern, which is still used to scan the heavens.
Headed back down the tower, quick look in the church, and then on the Lego.
Having purchased considerably more shares in Lego, we headed for the Metrro and back to Myrtle
