The Amalienborg Palace
Now we were in parts of Copenhagen where we had walked before, around the Kastellet.
At the Gefion Fountain by St. Albans Church the crowds were as busy as always. Walking past the Churchill Park I found a couple more busts of Danish heroes who I do receive medals in WW2. We followed a group along Ameliegade towards the palace. They kept stopping for updates on buildings and we were soon alone.
Once in the square surrounded by the palace building we watched the guards. It was hot and we took a break from walking and made calls to the UK standing in the shade. We just stood as we called but others were sitting on steps outside the buildings. One of the guards ran along to them and ‘instructed’ them to move.
It seems that it is okay to be in the square but not to sit on the palace steps.
After the palace down Ameliegade and crossed over Sankt Annae Place until we reached Nyvahn.
This is tourist central in Copenhagen!
At Nyvahn we turned right and went up the side of the Canal to the very end where we sat in the shade for a well-deserved drink at our favourite restaurant.
After our rest we walked down the side of Nyvhan with all the bars and restaurants.
I went onto the bridge Nyvahnsbroen , for Toldbodgade, to watch the tourist boats pass and took pictures of the “love padlocks “there.
As I took pictures an ambulance arrived to look after someone who had collapsed. It was very hot by now and the patient was an older man who had collapsed after crossing the road. While we waited to cross another ambulance arrived to help a child who had also collapsed on the bridge itself.
Further up Nyvahn we met our friends off the ship who were enjoying a drink before returning via the shuttle to the ship.
At the next ice cream shop we stopped for an ice cream. We sat outside with many others as we ate the wonderful ice cream.
