Welcome to the Hanham Family website.
Thursday, June 5 – Copenhagen, Denmark
As we entered Copenhagen, we passed by several endless rows of orange buildings that originally were used to house the sailors in the Danish Navy.
Our first stop was to see the “Little Mermaid”. This statue is the best known attraction in Copenhagen.
In the water we could see some jellyfish.
Next we visited the square in front of the Royal Palace, home of Margaret II, queen of Denmark.
In front of the Royal Palace, we watched the changing of the palace guard.
Nearby to the Royal Palace is Slottsbacken Cathedral, which was built in the 1600’s.
St Alban's Church (often known as the English Church) is an Anglican church in Copenhagen. It was built from 1885 to 1887 for the growing English congregation in the city.
We also drove by the Danish Parliament building.
We also saw Kobenhavns University, which is the oldest university in Denmark.
In the center of the city is a Trivoli Fountain.
Here is a view of one of the city streets in downtown.
And here is a picture of one of the canals in the city.
