The boat tour of the Copenhagen harbors and canals was today’s favorite experience. In Kristianshavn, large white yachts docked in front of 18th century Dutch houses. Some hosted lounging sun worshipers, sipping wine. Down the center of the canal, kayakers and standup paddle boarders waved greetings to picnickers on the bank.
One of the islands, Freetown Kristiania, declares its own laws, and many of its inhabitants live on funky houseboats, A beautiful new pedestrian and bicycle bridge connects Nyhavn with Kristianshavn. It’s called the Kissing Bridge because the two sides meet in the middle. Another bridge is composed of circles, with girding rising up like Christmas trees. We passed up Noma, a restaurant for several years ranked number one in the world, located in an dingy old warehouse.
