Tivoli Gardens in Copenhagen, Denmark is a world treasure, designed by man. It is a reflection of the Danish flair for design that in the center of a major city they would create a park, with restaurants, lakes, a concert hall, and amusement rides. This fountain in one of the lakes changed colors frequently, making water look like fire.
This was our hotel room at the Radisson Blu Royal Hotel across from Tivoli Gardens. The city allowed a high rise hotel to be built downtown in exchange for stipulating that everything in the hotel, including the architectural features, furniture, and even the silverware must be a design by Arne Jacobsen, a famous Danish designer.
This is the wall above the bed, shown in the last photo, at night. With delightful surprises such as this, one is reluctant to turn out the lights.
This is the Stroget, which Copenhagen claims is the world's longest pedestrian shopping street. It is a popular place for shopping, walking, dining, and meeting friends, many of whom arrive by bicycle, as this photo shows.
This is the view of Tivoli from the same hotel room with the funky wall of lights that I showed above. One of the entrances to Tivoli is in the lower left.
This is a night time view of the entrance to Tivoli shown in the lower left of the previous photo.
The Palace Square is the site of the Amalienborg Palace, the winter home of the Royal Family, which is at the left of this photo. We had an unusual vantage point to take this photo. We took a large, overnight cruise ship ferry to Oslo, Norway, and we had this view from the top deck as we sailed out of Copenhagen.
