A baker has fallen ill and all his customers write wishes for his recovery on the shop window. By the way, this is my very first Copenhagen in pictures for 2024!

Børnenes Nytårstale

Just outside Trinitatis Church (the one by the Round Tower) there is an all-white sculpture at the front representing a hand with a pointing finger. Well, this is actually part of the project the Children’s New Year’s speech where anyone can write anything.

The snow leopard

In central Copenhagen, just outside the War Museum stands this tank. It is a Leopard 1 from the 70s that is now enjoying the cold, icy winter day.

Byen fra skyen

In the former meat packing district, the “Village from the Sky” outdoor exhibition is still going on despite the winter and cold. And yes, there are absolutely fantastic pictures of Copenhagen from above.
Where it takes place is just a short walk away from the main train station.

Winter Island

As a novelty this winter, Green Island has expanded and is open when it is darkest outside. Really, out here on the floating facility in the canal it is relatively calm.

The coronation of the king

The coronation of the king was, as expected, a fantastic event. And Tuborg had come up with its own imaginative way of drawing attention to this.

Dannebrogen

A man photographs the Danish flag outside City Hall, the Dannebrogen, which is the world’s oldest state flag. Also, the red color was the most expensive to produce in the past.

Sunday along Vesterbrogade

Being without money is a misery, and then you have to resort to your imagination. Here you can decide for yourself how your contribution will be used.

Snow and darkness

Winter can be really beautiful, but there is rarely more snow than this in the city.

Late January

Gray weather like this at the end of January. But the cyclists don’t stop just because it’s winter. By the way, over 50% of Copenhageners cycle to and from work every day!

Copenhagen Light Festival

Now the festival of lights is in full swing. And on a cold Saturday night like this, many people are out enjoying all the light in the winter darkness.

The skating rink at Fredriksberg

Skating belongs to winter, and so also in Copenhagen. Therefore, the opportunity is offered in a few places in the city when it is coldest. Here it is at Fredriksberg late one evening.

Cherry blossom at Bispebjerg kirkegård

At this time of year, Copenhageners make the pilgrimage to Bispebjerg to enjoy the blooming cherry trees.

The pizza problem

Soon summer will be here and with it all the empty pizza boxes in the parks. Yes, the Danes love pizza!

The old stock exchange on fire

The old Stock Exchange, with its fantastic spire, on fire. And unfortunately, a large part of the building is destroyed. Later the walls also collapsed.

Another march

King Frederik adorns one of the posters promoting this year’s global marijuana march.

Copenhagen Marathon

This year’s Copenhagen Marathon is over. And the rain that came in the afternoon was certainly a good cooling off for all those sweating on the streets.

Vesterbro Torv in the evening sun

Summer is not far away now and the evenings are starting to feel endlessly long.
