HoH/Deaf Accessibility of the Danish Royal Palaces

So now that I have talked about all of the Royal Palaces in Denmark, I must talk about this. What really struck me about the Royal Palaces, and perhaps this is a reflection of Danish culture, is just how HoH and Deaf-Friendly they were. Yes, the palaces echoed, but unlike MANY, MANY places that I…… Continue reading HoH/Deaf Accessibility of the Danish Royal Palaces

Christianborg Palace, Copenhagen

Another Royal Palace, where the Royal Family lived for a period of time. It is currently the seat of the Danish Parliament, the Danis Prime Minister’s Offices, and the Supreme Courts. Some of the parts are used by the Queen, such as the Royal Reception Rooms, the Palace Chapel, and the Royal Stables, to this…… Continue reading Christianborg Palace, Copenhagen

Amalienborg Palace, Copenhagen

Amalienborg Palace is another Royal Castle in Copenhagen, and while a part of it is a museum, it is also the current home of the Danish Royal Family. There are four palaces around a plaza, in the shape of a square. Once again, the Palace also has a garden. Originally, they were built as residences…… Continue reading Amalienborg Palace, Copenhagen

Rosenborg Castle, Copenhagen

The castle was built in the early 17th century by King Christian IV and is surrounded by the King’s Garden, which is a park. Apparently this castle was initially built as a summer home, but it was Christian IV’s favorite. In fact, it was used as a Royal residence until 1710, after which it was…… Continue reading Rosenborg Castle, Copenhagen

Visiting New York City during COVID-19

New York City is experiencing lockdown due to COVID-19, and the experience is unlike any other. A city that never sleeps is now quiet, and for once, you can hear sounds that would not normally be associated with NYC.

Sankt Hans Aften

Sankt Hans Aften, if you’re familiar with Christianity, starts on sunset on June 23, and is the eve of the celebration known as the Feast Day of Saint John the Baptist. Saint John the Baptist was an important…… Continue reading Sankt Hans Aften

Jah Izakaya & Sake Bar: A Japanese Izakaya-style restaurant in Vesterbro

If you’re looking to get away from the Danish food, and want something Japanese, this Izakaya-style restaurant located in Copenhagen’s Vesterbro district is absolutely amazing. It is on the more expensive side, but totally worth the price for the experience. Furthermore, because this is Denmark, and they’re located so close to the sea, the fish…… Continue reading Jah Izakaya & Sake Bar: A Japanese Izakaya-style restaurant in Vesterbro

Nyhavn

This little location is an absolute gem—and probably every tourist’s dream! The waterfront houses are originals from the 17th and 18th centuries, and they continue to be painted in bold and beautiful colors. Hans Christian Anderson used to live in some of these, as I mentioned in my earlier travel guide, here. Today Nyhaven is…… Continue reading Nyhavn

Atelier September: A Good Place to Slow Down

Looking for a good place that serves coffee and refreshements, but has a Hygge vibe, and is eco-friendly? Atelier September is definitely the place to visit. It reminds me of a farm-house kitchen in the middle of the countryside, yet it is actually located in the city of Copenhagen. It’s cute, and cozy, but also…… Continue reading Atelier September: A Good Place to Slow Down
