Copenhagen & Malmo Highlights!

Hello My lovelies

My Easter weekend was spent in Denmark and Sweden exploring the cities of Copenhagen and Malmo. It was a fun weekend full of laughs and seeing new things so read on to see my highlights!

On Easter Saturday we spent the day hopping on and off of the buses going around the city as it was torrential rain and freezing cold! Sadly the bus had no heating so we sat on a cold bus all day which wasn't the most fun thing I've ever done. However it was great to visit the beautiful coloured buildings that I had admired for years and pop into a cafĂ© for a hot drink.   

We then went along to visit the Little Mermaid based on the fairy tale of the same name by Danish author Hans Christian Andersen. I was really shocked to see how small she is- I was expecting a larger sculpture. It was a flying trip down to the waters edge as the temperature was hitting zero at this point. 

Then it was on to town for some much needed hot food and a walk around the many shops. We couldn't resist picking up some churros covered in nutella and chopped nuts as we spent the rest of the afternoon exploring!

On Easter Sunday we took the train over the bridge from Copenhagen to Malmo Sweden- it takes roughly an hour on the way there and 30 minutes coming back and costs £20 for a return ticket (don't forget your passport!) Malmo is Sweden's third largest city and compared to Copenhagen felt cleaner, prettier older style architecture and bigger spaces to walk and explore.

Never having been to Sweden I wasn't sure what to expect but I loved my first adventure and now can't wait to book a mini trip to Stockholm. We only had a couple of hours so we walked mainly around the main square and grabbed some late lunch to take back to the train with us.

Though it was a flying visit to both Denmark and Sweden I felt that I got a good vibe for each country and I now know that whilst Denmark was fun its Sweden that I want to visit in more detail.

Make sure you check out my recent outfit of the day which was meant to be shot in Denmark but had to be abandoned!

Have you visited either cities before? I would love to hear what you thought- so please do leave me a comment or visit my Instagram wonderfulworldblog or twitter @steaders83.

  1. I've never visited Denmark or Sweden, although Denmark is very high on my 'places to visit' list. So glad you enjoyed your mini break :)
