COPENHAGEN | Denmark's big city

EUROTHUNDER













































































































































Journey three hours west and north by train to the Jutland Peninsula, where we encounter Aarhus, Denmark's second city. Aarhus is both a major port city and a university town.













































Traveling north along the east side of the Jutland






A typical small town in central Denmark. I can't remember which one.


Hadsund, a town of 5,000 on the Mariager Fjord


As an American abroad, it is my duty to declare which North American landscapes the places I encounter remind me of. Denmark took a while, but then I got it: Prince Edward Island.


Aalborg, Denmark's fourth largest city (either 100k or 200k, depending on which level of municipality/region is measured). It is the northernmost big-ish city in Denmark, sitting at 57 N degrees of latitude. It replaces Calgary as the furthest north I've been.











Aalborg was a very nice and interesting city, but I only came away with a handful of shots.


-Return to Copenhagen-










































Malmö, Sweden's third largest city, sits across the Öresund bridge from Copenhagen. It is about 30 minutes by train. Passports were not checked in either direction















Lund, a college town of 82k just to the north and east of Malmö. It was a very pleasant city, but I got very few photos.


Back in Copenhagen.

Love the zoom shots of the Oresund Bridge and the diversity of this thread. I really live close by, from an American point of view, but I never visited Denmark for some reason.

You can Never go wrong when clicking on a Thundertub thread .

My knowledge of Copenhagen is rather limited in comparison to other European cities so this was a definite eye-opener! So many great views!!!

Well done as usual. Was you able to visit any other places over there before you had to come back to the states?

European city planners have it made. It seems like they never had to worry about advocating the whole mixed-use, continuous street wall, complete streets philosophy. They must just play computer games all day.

Beautiful photos.

Interesting how the street lighting is exterior High Bays pendant mounted from cables suspended form the buildings. I never seen that before, but my travels are limited.

Amazing thread, top notch photography. Looks like an amazing city. I always wanted to go explore it on a bike.
