Where I stayed
We walked to the closest station to the ferry terminal, and caught the s-bahn to Vanlose. There appeared to be nobody at the hostel, so we hid our bags around the corner of the house, and headed off to do some exploring. The hostel reminds us a lot of Kristina's in Kiev. It's a private home, where 3 or 4 bedrooms are rented out, and a common kitchen and bathroom space is provided.
Spent a while exploring the parks to the east of the city centre. Started with Kongens Have (Kings Garden) which has the old Rosenborg Castle and a Hans Christian Andersen statue in the middle of it, then through the Botanical Gardens with its extensive collection of overseas plants and trees. The daffodils were just finishing, and the tulips were in full bloom.
Around Østre Anlæg (some big gardens) to the old Castle and barracks where we walked the ramparts while everybody else jogged them. There is a moat and earth mound all around, so it was heavily fortified for the 1600s, but probably insufficient for the 1940s.
