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

Sankt Hans Aften

I was lucky to visit Denmark for Saint John’s Eve (Sankt Hans), which also coincides with Midsummer. 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

COVID-19 brings challenges for Hard of Hearing Individuals

As you can see, I have avoided any mention of COVID-19 here in the last several months since the situation has begun developing. Based on the things that I was seeing, people were overwhelmed with all the misinformation, fear, frustration, and anger. It was too chaotic, too uncertain a time to have a conversation about…… Continue reading COVID-19 brings challenges for Hard of Hearing Individuals

Torvehallerne

The Torvehallerne is a foodhalken—or a food hall—as I mentioned in my earlier guide to Copenhagen (can be found here). This is a great place to buy lunch, grab coffee, and do your groceries. During the five day stay in Copenhagen, we came here at least three times to eat and explore, and the food…… Continue reading Torvehallerne

Vor Frelsers Kirke Spire

Vor Frelsers Kirke, also known as Our Saviour’s Church, is a baroque church located in Christianhaven, a district of Copenhagen. It is famous for its helix spire with an external winding staircase that can be climbed to the top, and which offers views of central Copenhagen. Views of the Church’s Spire from the outside To…… Continue reading Vor Frelsers Kirke Spire
