Den Blå Planet, Torvehallerne & Tivoli

 

The aquarium is shaped like a whirlpool with different aquatic life in each of the five ‘arms’.  Probably the most fascinating were the two sea otters Agnes and Mojoe, watching them either lying on a bed of ice, picking up the cubes and crunching them into their mouths, or slipping through the water with silky smooth ease.  The tropical arm yielded some enormous Amazonian fish, pirhana and a bat and the coral arm, some weedy sea dragons.

The food hall at Torvehallerne consists of two indoor food stall markets under glass and an outside flower, fruit and veg market.  Copenhagen has been voted the number one city to visit this year by Lonely Planet and in the last decade has become a culinary hot spot.

Tivoli comes alive after dark and is a true family attraction; there’s something for everyone.  From old fashioned shoot to win stands to the horrors of the ‘Vertigo’ ride, shops selling Christmas baubles, light shows and every kind of food you can imagine, oh and of course, plenty of roasted nuts, hot chocolate and gløgg stalls.  Hurrah!
