We arrived in Copenhagen on a cold Sunday. We had found Munich cold, so going up that much in latitude didn't help matters much. Also, the city closes on Sundays, or at least a lot of the shops and attractions.

But we made the best of it. There were sculptures

and a free museum which was actually really good, worthy of being the national museum of any european country. It made us glad we hadn't paid for similar museums earlier (at least not often).
There was a large part of the museum devoted to Asia, of which I have about 50 pics.

The cityscape is quite pretty, with the differently colored buildings along the canals

Oh and the statue of the Little Mermaid, which is quite little indeed - about 3 feet tall.
