More a case with Sankt Hans Torv than Trianglen IMO, but I certainly get where you are coming from and agree..

Neither was made the urban "hubs" that they perhaps should have been when the city expanded outwards and we agree that them having been more boxed in would perhaps have improved on that..

Denmark is so beautiful. I was born in the wrong country.

I bet the Danes like Freki themselves sometimes happen to think the same.
Grass often seems greener on the other side, they say.

But they've got a couple of interesting things to steal for sure.

^yup - and as I touched on in post #1 - our summer half is by far the most interesting - while we have more costline than Spain and Portugal combined it's little good when the weather is dark and grey and boring as it typically is in the winter here.. so it's a "ying and Yang" situation where we do pay a price for our long wonderful summer days

Plus when nature is so uniform it's always great to travel out and see something different

Kind of you to say so mate, but being so small ( disregarding the Faroe Islands and Greenland ) the nature isn't especially diverse and we are typically very envious of nations with mountains and palm trees and all the stuff large nations like the US enjoys.. ( partially why Danes travel so much )

Norway, Iceland, Sweden and Finland all used to be part of Denmark - but there's this dumb ideology here that we don't want to keep people against their will, so they were granted independence..

The Virgin islands we sold to the US - England we lost in Battle and Normandy and other outposts established their own thing and seperated.. not to mention settling Canada was abandoned after a cooling in climate and local fights with natives..

So what could have been one of the world largest nations is today just a tiny spek - but in return were are a tight bunch with a very social minded population and that is our greatest strenght these days with globilization and unstable economies..

I think it will be interesting to see how Poul Henningsens Plads responds to the opening of the metro station. It might produce a second Trianglen up at the top of Østerbrogade.

My friend went to see "The Danish Girl" the other day and told me that the theatre erupted in laughter when a scene is what was supposed to be Vejle showed towering mountains and jagged peaks.

LOL, I had the same thoughts when I saw that movie! I'm like...umm...that is definitely the Faeroe Islands, not somewhere in Jutland.

I can't say that I am surprised - but it is strange such keeps happening..


Worst case was probable the animation movie "Beowulf" where Zealand is depictured like northern Greenland

I love that pastel street in Østerbro, makes me think of St. Petersburg or something.

looks very pleasant. i had no idea about the dunes there, that is interesting to see. the photo of the people climbing the dunes reminded me of doing the dune climb at sleeping bear dunes up in michigan. good times.

Beautiful pictures of Denmark!

I am planning to visit there this June and it gives me a good idea of what to expect!
By the looks of it, I cannot wait!
