Copenhagen: Why Walking Back Is Super Great!!!!

Recommended Posts

I am really late to this excellent thread about Copenhagen. We will be stopping here on our cruise next September. We are only in port for 8 hours and this is our first visit. It will be really difficult to see and do everything that we would like to. Thank you for posting the beautiful photos! Makes me even more excited for our visit!

 

Appreciate these kind comments and this follow-up. Good luck with your visit to Europe next September. Lots of great options to consider in Copenhagen' date=' but only a limited amount of net time available. [b']Research and plan[/b] accordingly in order to maximize your experience there.

 

THANKS! Enjoy! Terry in Ohio

We've been to Copenhagen 4 times as the final port of a cruise and once we departed from there on a cruise, probably spending about 8 days or so, in toto.  Since you will be for just 8 hours, I would recommend doing as much research as you can and narrow down what sites are must-sees.  Also, we've used the HOHO bus as it goes by all the "must-sees".  While a canal cruise is an option, you won't see as much as you would on the HOHO, IMHO.  [I can't remember if we ever did a canal cruise.]  When we were there post-cruise for a few days last year, I did a lot of walking.  We were staying near the train station and I walked as far north as Amalienborg Palace (current home of the Queen) and then west to Rosenberg Slot (former palace, now open to the public), wimping out at that point and riding the HOHO back.  Have a wonderful time when you're there!

We found the canal cruise to be a highlight, especially as it gave us time to rest from all the walking.

Appreciate the wonderful follow-ups from Barb, our neighbor to the north in Michigan, and from mskaufman.  Good and very helpful!!  Agree strongly for doing the advanced research.  Copenhagen has so many excellent options that you don't want to just "guess" on the day of your visit as to what you might do or see.  YES, agree on canal rides, including in Copenhagen and St. Petersburg, being very good to allow some time off of your feet and gaining a little relaxing time.  

 

THANKS!  Enjoy!  Terry in Ohio

During our 2.5 day stay in August of 2017 before our TA, we stayed at the Hotel Bethel right on the Canal and it was a great place with the restaurants across the way, easy walk to catch the canal rides and agree, a must see and do. We also one night at the fish market across the way.We took the bridge over. Loved all the pictures, brought back memories of our trip.

From the Travel Section of the London/UK Guardian earlier this month, they had this headline: “Carlsberg, probably the best new district in Copenhagen”  with this sub-head: "A new hotel, once part of the famous brewery, is the latest addition to a neighbourhood with an industrial-chic feel and a sustainable ethos." 

 

Here are some of the story highlights: “The smell of fermented hops is long gone but the old Carlsberg brewery’s former storage building is buzzing in a way not seen in over a decade. That’s because the work cries of labourers have been replaced by the chatter of visitors checking in to the new 155-room Hotel Ottilia that now lies behind the building’s red-brick shell.  With a wink to the past and a nod to the future, Hotel Ottilia (doubles from £120 B&B), which opened in January, pairs unpolished architectural details, such as the remaining grain silos and malt chambers, against modern features that include a three-storey x-ray light sculpture, which stretches upwards from the lobby like a strand of DNA.”

 

More interesting areas and options to sample in charming Copenhagen.

Just a note for anyone hoping to ride it, the Cityringen metro line opening has been delayed to September, according to @Danish viking

 

Great update!!  On another board, this timing delay was posted.  Apparently the famed Sunday Times missed that important timing detail in Copenhagen.

Hi Terry,  Thanks as always for your terrific posts and photos, and to everyone else contributing to the terrific topic on Copenhagen, it's been so helpful to so many CC members.

Terry, I can't tell for sure if the last, spectacular photo is yours or part of an article that you've cited in your post and I want to be sure we have any attribution credit cited properly as the photo isn't linked to a news or magazine page, or your blog. Would you be able to update your post with the source of that photo so we have it sourced correctly? Thanks in advance for helping us out with this.

Being prepared and being spontaneous are some of my favorite travel strategies after all these years. In addition to walking, it makes for the most welcome surprises, local experiences, and helps find the hidden gems we don't read about in the guide books and can't see on big buses.  Less mobile? Just work on your small talk and chat up people around you. You'd be surprised what kind of fun things happen. 🙂

 

Appreciate this nice and helpful follow-up from Host Bonjour.  Good ideas, tips and sharing.  

 

YES, after "Full story at:", I had the full web link to this full profile and right above that one picture, I noted "with this article a visual featured that is titled 'Copenhagen: postcard pretty'." in order to credit the London/UK Telegraph as to the source for this colorful and interesting picture used to illustrate their article about Copenhagen. 

 

THANKS!  Enjoy!  Terry in Ohio

HI Terry, 

 

Thanks so much for your reply!! So this is the sequence I see in your original post, with Full Story At link coming ahead your sign off, then the blog post link, then a heads up to click open to the beautiful gallery of photographs. But the image on display in the post is a Getty Image and it needs to be credited as a Getty Image or removed and replaced by one of your incredible photographs from a trip to Copenhagen as they are Getty-worthy. 😉  

 

Readers of the Telegraph article will see the image once they click on the link as it leads the story, but I can understand your enthusiasm to share it separately, as it IS spectacular. If you choose to keep it that way, please just add text stating that it is a Getty Image as it represents a commercial transaction between Getty and the Telegraph and we did not pay for the photograph. I know you mean well, but if the photo ends up everywhere on Instagram and Getty tracked it down, Fair Use wouldn't apply here. 

 

Thanks so much in advance for helping, and for always contributing lovely photographs and great resources for everyone, they're greatly appreciated as you know. 🙂

Appreciate this additional information and follow-up.  When a newspaper such as the UK Telegraph has a picture in their article, I can also credit Getty, etc., if that is their originally posted source.  BUT, I cannot go back and edit those earlier postings as I am "locked out" from doing such additional changes/additions at this stage of the Cruise Critic process.  Just to clarify, is crediting Getty as the newspaper's source sufficient?  Or, does more need to be done?  Obviously, I have no control or power to limit what any other people might do to make postings on Instagram, etc.   Any clarifications?

 

THANKS!  Enjoy!  Terry in Ohio

Any and all image credits within the original media, are often listed at the start of the article or, underneath each image as it appears in the body of any piece, and that would be what is necessary. In the absence of any individual name or agency name (Getty Images, AP, etc) please credit the media source, such as The New York Times, CNN, Travel + Leisure, either immediately preceding or following the image posted.

 

I think the TOS guideline speaks to it best:

It's YOU Terry, and all our members, posting stories and your own photos that have made and continue to make Cruise Critic the most sought after online cruise community! It's the first hand information that does not come from the media, it's the real people, the conversations and sharing that happens on these message boards.

As I've said many times to many members, we appreciate you.

Appreciate this additional background and follow-up.  This clarifies, somewhat, certain questions.  As always with legal issues, there are still could be some questions and variations, but this helps.  As an example this morning, there was a major story about Saudi Arabia being opened up to future tourism and cruise ship visits.  I did a brief story, "fair use" quote and a picture from a historic site in that country.  Immediately in front of that picture, I credited the NYT photographer.  I will totally stay away from any Getty, etc., pictures.  Of course, I have not been to Saudi Arabia and do not have any of my visual from that somewhat, previously "closed off" country.  

 

THANKS!  Enjoy!  Terry in Ohio

Hi Terry,

 

Oh yes, there can always be interpretations, or, variations when it comes to legal matters concerning fair use which basically covers non-commercial use of other's work. Cruise Critic is a commercial enterprise and that's forms the foundation of CC's TOS rules, but as our guidelines also mention, we'd rather see member photographs rather than press or commercial images that everyone can find on their own. Sharing and community is how we got started way back in the nineties! And, of course Cruise Critic takes great care to offer members our own specially curated and themed content, which has made this a dominant force in the cruise travel industry. 

 

Thanks in advance for adding that credit directly next to the New York Times photograph. I don't believe it's a problem using a Getty Image or any other agency as long as that organization (and any named photographer) is credited appropriately. In some ways, they similar to press organization, they purchase the work of photographers and or pay photographers/editors on staff. These days, most news organizations and magazines have few on staff full time. Most freelance, working hard to take a few photographs to complete their assignment, shooting work and then working to pitch to an editor as a possible story for that publication. Lots of work is done on spec.

 

They just love what they do, and I think, just like us, love going places and having new and different experiences. And also like us, getting paid for their hard work. 

 

And yes, I fully agree with you about the progress in Saudi Arabia. Here's hoping the progress continues especially for women and all people in general. Change takes time but hope springs eternal. Freedom and equality is something for everyone, everywhere to strive for, always. Perhaps at some point, you will have photos of a trip there? 

 

Thanks very much for following up, Terry. Hope you are enjoying the weekend.
