April 27th 2012, one day in Copenhagen ...

Having a workshop close to and a meeting in Copenhagen, we used the opportunity to have a look at the city afterwards ...

After a recommendation of our client, we went to Ida Davidsen, the best (?) smorebrod in town ... here the buffet where you ordered it ... it's basically a slice of bread covered with e. g. fish ... ... and it has to be covered in a way that you don't see the bread anymore!

So Copenhagen is a lovely city, very expensive (hotel, food, etc.). It was worth a visit and after an hour and twenty minutes of flight we landed back in Frankfurt!
