European Christmas Markets: Copenhagen, Denmark

My friends and I have a tradition of visiting Christmas markets around Europe every Thanksgiving weekend.  It is a very happy coincidence that most Christmas markets in Europe start the fourth week of November, which happens to be a four day weekend for us yankees.

This year we took a trip to Copenhagen to visit the Christmas market in Tivoli Gardens.

Tivoli is an amusement park that is decorated for Christmas and filled with wooden huts selling Christmas decorations and gifts.

This year the Titanic Exhibition was on display at Tivoli.  I love the crap out of chick-flicks so I have naturally watched the Kate Winslet movie too many times to count.  This was even better than the movie.  They even had a model of the ship complete with the car in the storage area.  you know which one I am talking about.

I forgot my tripod the first night and the second night it was raining so a lot of my shots were ruined, but I still had a lot of fun walking around and enjoying the sights.

Inside the fake Taj Mahal is a restaurant that I will tell you a story about in the next post.  I will give you a sneak peak: it involves hot dogs and chocolate milk.

These hearts changed color from red to green to blue, pretty cool.  I like the hearts in the tree.  That giant Christmas tree in the back isn’t bad either…

    I would love to go to a European Christmas market. A tad too far from Australia, unfortunately.
