Location: Copenhagen, Denmark
Date visited: April 2013
To be honest, we weren't that impressed with Copenhagen. It was okay, but honestly we could have skipped it. But we tried to make the most of it while we were there, and did kind of enjoy our random tour of Christiansborg Palace. We checked out the castle ruins underneath, which weren't the most interesting (yay for unidentifiable piles of rocks!), but the video about the history of the building was unintentionally humorous, as it seems to have had a problem with fire. After the second conflagration we started making jokes about the king of Swamp Castle from Monty Python and the Holy Grail: "So I built a third castle. That one burned down, fell over, then sank into the swamp!" Later we wandered into the chapel portion of the castle and learned that it too had burned down on another occasion. We decided to leave before the building caught fire again, as it was clearly overdue.
