Welcome to the latest information about life and architecture in Copenhagen. Having fun is what life is all about. That is exactly what we do here.

I have spent a few weeks in August 2016 doing this, making my mark so to speak, talking about local attractions. Few people do it. They should – it is easy and fun.

There is a lot of fun places for kids in town.
