Copenhagen is a five hour train ride from Stockholm. Most of the museums in Europe close pretty early. So we made a mad dash to the Danish Design Center and discovered the Flow Market in the Center’s basement. We barely made it to the Danish Museum of Art and Design. And we arrived for the canal tour right on time. The home of Hans Christian Andersen, Copenhagen is a little more Disney-like than sophisticated Stockholm. But we enjoyed the city and Tivoli Gardens, where I could not resist The Flying Trunk, a children’s ride that highlighted each of Andersen’s fairy tales.  Enjoy the videos of the ride.
