One day trip from Copenhagen: Dragør, the fishing village
Hello Friday! Nice to have you here :))
Guys, I am super excited about this weekend, for two reasons: on Monday there is a bank holiday so we will have like a mini vacation and secondly, because it seems that the weather will be just perfect!
I can't believe that just like 3 weeks ago, when we planed a one day trip from Copenhagen, it was so cold and windy. But we wanted so much to visit the fishing village Dragør that it didn't matter. And it was worth it! If you plan to visit it, here are some things you have to know and, of course, some photos to make you go there quicker :))
Dragør is an idyllic old village, build in the traditional Danish style, with cobblestones streets, yellow-painted houses and red roofs. It was founded in the 12th century and grew quickly as a fishing port. The charming harbor is like a fairy tale, lively, colorful, with breathtaking views.
How to arrive there:
- By bike you will be there in less than 1 h, if you are in a good shape and the weather is nice. Our intention was to go by bike, but on that day the wind was blowing at more than 100 km/h, so we changed our minds... by force :) We parked the bikes in front of Magasin du Nord and we took the bus.
- By bus you will be there in 40 minutes. You have to take the 350 S bus, from the station located just behind Magasin du Nord from Kongens Nytorv. It's quite a nice ride, as you get to see a big part of the Amager island. A one way ticket cost 12 Kr/person, with the Rejekort card.
What to do: you can visit the Amager Museum or the Dragør museum, exhibitions about many aspects of the country and maritime life of Dragør and Amager in past times. Or you can just enjoy the beautiful beach, spend time in the harbor, visit the city center, or get lost in the picturesque maze of alleys.
I liked Dragør so much, that I plan to go back there very soon. If you will visit it, don't forget to tell me if you liked it!
Lots of love!
