Pile On A City, Vol.4: Copenhagen, Denmark

For the first time, we head across the Atlantic to pile on a European city, so here goes:

It's coppered roofs and imaginative spires depict the seat of a powerful empire. Alas, that was a thousand years ago. Today, while Denmark still has a queen, or something, her main duty is cutting the ribbon at IKEA openings.

Copenhagen, however, still retains much of that wealthy city feel. Especially when you're trying to buy a beer. At the equivalent of $8 in that funny currency with the hole in the middle that the Danes use, Danish beer is more expensive than prescription medication, and about as tasty.

As you wander the streets (Stroget, pronounced "Strghrghrg-gulp," and Kongens Nytorv, pronounced "Kglluuuhh"), you'll doubtless ponder the same question that visitors to this capital have been asking themselves for hundreds of years. "Why am I here?" is a common one, as is "What time does my flight leave?" Fortunately, the residents of Copenhagen are happy to answer that question, when not shivering too hard in the Scandinavian cold for their words to be understood.


Tivoli Gardens, the "Danish Disneyworld"

Another thing that Copenhagen is known for is its women. You know that popular characterization of Scandinavian women being beautiful and sexually free? They're talking about the Norwegians and the Swedes.


A Copenhag in traditional dress

Finally, the most damning indictment of Copenhagen (besides the consistently awful play of F.C. Kobenhavn) is that a guy like OYRJA can get a job there, proving that professional standards as well as personal standards are in the gutter. Hell, even their red light district is half-ass.

For your roasting pleasure: Copenhagen, Denmark. Feel free to pile on.

Hmm...I spent a couple of days in Copenhagen a few weeks ago and kinda liked it, but then again I do live in the world's most spectacularly dull shit hole, Bradford, UK, so pretty much anywhere is good for me.

I thoroughly enjoyed Copenhagen the couple of times I was there - my first wife  tombstone  and I got married there. The hotel was awesome, Tivoli Gardens got a lot of my $$$, Madame Toussad's Wax Museum, the waterfront. Altogether an enjoyable trip - each time.  bigthumbsup 

Even went out to CPH just to watch airplanes for a bit . . .

Note to Self: Watch out - might be on LHMark's next Pile on List. Oughta be interesting to see how many can pile on ANC that have ever spent time here.

Silly Wabbit, you don't need to actually KNOW anything about a city to talk sh*t about it... just a bunch of stereotypes and misconceptions will usually do.  Smile

IKEA openings.

Well, you do know the difference between Sweden and Denmark, do you?

Anyway, I always liked Copenhagen, the only place in Denmark which is really large and really feeling international. Now if CPH wasn't that expensive...

Only problem is that people in Copenhagen cannot speak proper Danish, it always sounds so "irriterende", which real Danish people would call "træls".

Probably couldn't cope with real beer, proper food and good looking, slim women.

If you can't understand it, it must be worth slagging off!  tongue

I've never been to Copenhagen, but I can't imagine it being as bad as the trashy, classless dump I live in: Daytona Beach.


It is a mistake to think you can solve any major problems with just potatoes.
