We actually started the day off at the Tycho Brahe planetarium but despite my eternal fascination with planetaria (I assume it stems from growing up in a city where getting to see any stars, let alone whole constellations, was a rarity) we decide against going. We wandered around for a bit, enjoying Vesterbro’s trendiness, then headed off to the town brewery.
We started with a self-guided tour, which included a fairly thorough account of beer-making and various yeasts used. I was most impressed to learn that the boffins at Carlsberg were responsible for finding their own strain of yeast. The Boy, I think, was more impressed with the furry little gentleman we met while wandering through Carlsberg’s statuary garden.
As part of the tour, we ended up wending around a portion of the world’s largest collection of beer bottles, and then in the gift shop, where fewer accessories for The Boy’s bar-to-be were present than we’d hoped. (He was hoping for glasses, I was hoping for vintage posters.) We also snacked for a bit (with free beer!) and watched one of the Carlsberg horses snacking on the grass and being petted by tourists. Was I one of those tourists? Time will tell!
Another educational discovery of the afternoon? The Boy likes Squash (fizzy orange drink). Huh.
We strolled onwards, stopping at the enormous shopping mall, where we were rewarded with crappy music not heard since the last time we were at a mall back in Ontario. We thus hightailed it back to the outdoors cafes, stopping in at Cafe Obelix which we’d seen earlier and vowed to stop back in at, naturally.
It wasn’t just coincidence either; the cafe really was inspired by Obelix! See?
The sky was, if possible, even bluer than in the picture all day. All in, an excellent last day in Copenhagen.
