Christmas 2017 was the year to escape the commercialised Christmas chaos in the UK. As you have seen from my introduction page I am Dutch and as such I go abroad every other year to celebrate Christmas (usually back home) but I opted to go somewhere else in Europe instead this year.
I like to visit new places instead of going back to the same place twice. The northern countries have always been on my bucket list so after having looked at the travel times; bearing in mind that I was only going to be there for 4 days, it ended up being Copenhagen due to the airport being very close to the city centre and the convenience of the Youth Hostel I had chosen to stay at.
Travel commenced with very convenient flight times with Ryanair (not recommended as an airline purely for travel times during my period of travel). With a flight time of 1.5 hours from Stansted Airport to Copenhagen Airport and then a 15 minute train journey to Copenhagen Central Station it was by far one of the easiest journeys I have ever done abroad.
Copenhagen Central Station opened in 1911 and is the work of architect Heinrich Wenck. The main hall isn't just a waiting hall, but also a market place where most things can be bought. From fresh fruit sellers to super market, postal office, banks, currency exchanges, hamburgers, coffee shops, restaurants and pubs etc. There are also travel center for information and manual sale of tickets and two large toilet sections which are under manual supervision and clean. Shower rooms are also available for a smaller fee.
