An Early Easter in Copenhagen




















Wednesday, March 19th, I left for a short Easter vacation in Copenhagen. As Easter is at its earliest this year, visiting the Danish capital was a cold experience. We were met by fresh snow, as we landed at Kastrup international airport.

What did we do? We visited Statens museum for kunst, and admired a works by Cranach, Rembrandt, and Hals. We revisited Ny Carlsberg Glyptotek to see its French collection including works from Monet, Gauguin, Picasso, De Toulouse-Lautrec, and Matisse.

Copenhagen is an old city, and I walked its street in freezing winds, finding a few interesting sights. Copenhagen is a food Mecca. We indulged in large open sandwiches, brunch plates, and found another great Italian restaurant. I waited in vain for a pizza that never arrived. What to do in such a situation? Stay tuned and I'll tell you.
