Copenhagen: Carlsberg

Helsinki, 17 degrees


Nature is a labyrinth in which the very haste you move with will make you lose your way.

Helsinki is experiencing abnormally cold weather this summer. I had some sunny days during my two-week-long holiday but since I've been back at work, I've been able to count the warm days on one hand. It's fine since I'm at work, but summer should be all about sun and warmth, not rain and windy weather.

I thought this could be a perfect day to show you the last of my pictures from Copenhagen!

On our last day there, we went to the Carlsberg brewery museum. Do you like Carlsberg beer? On our way there, we stumbled upon this amazing labyrinth! I think labyrinths are fascinating since they resemble life itself: you might take the wrong turn sometimes, but in the end you end up at the goal. At the heart of this particular labyrinth, there was a floral surprise, beautiful red roses!


The actual museum was wonderful! We were met by a huge gate and when entering the gate we came to the museum premises. The first part of the museum showcased old beer wagons and vintage posters, without forgetting the beer stops of course.


The second part of the museum included a miniature of the Little Mermaid statue and a courtyard where one could once again have a beer stop under tents. I'm not even a beer drinker but I must say, here the beer was good! It was a very cool surrounding! There were also nice vintage cars inspired by Carlsberg!


The third part of the museum showcased the history of the company. It was interesting to learn more about the company and see its amazing bottle collection!


On the way back to the underground, on our way to the airport, we visited a café I had heard so much about - Granola! Granola offers freshly-brewed coffee, great creamy ice-cream, Summerbird chocolates and fruity milkshakes from the good old days. The place reeks with nostalgia so therefore it was perfect for me! There is a priceless old coffee mill in the middle of the room, colourful enamel signs, music from the 50s and 60s, and an old counter from the long gone days of colonial trade.


We also found this amazing graffiti wall with stunning colors next to the underground station, so we decided to play a little with it and make some fun photos!


At the airport we had - what else - of course, a famous huge Danish open sandwich with shrimp! This completes my stay in Copenhagen! Thank you Denmark for this wonderful experience!


Could you resist a delicious sandwich like this?

  2. That is too bad about the weather! It hasn't been very consistent where I live either - a lot of rain, actually. These are great pictures, and it looks like a really interesting experience! I love your hair in that high bun! So cute!
