It’s been a while since I posted anything on Vacation Reads, partly because I have been travelling more than usual the last few weeks and couldn’t find a spare moment to complete one of the many posts I have in progress. My most recent trip was a one day trip to the old Danish town of Dragør.
Dragør is a town located on the island of Amager, only 12 km south of Copenhagen city center. It is one of the most charming and special towns in Danemark because of its cobbled, narrow streets and its traditional yellow houses that are hundreds of years old. Not very crowded, with houses seemingly taken out of The Hobbit movie, it makes for an attractive destination to all those who are visiting Copenhagen and would like to see something different.
Dragør also features a cozy, lovely beach, though when we visited at the beginning of May, it was unfortunately a bit too early for sun bathing. But I plan to return here some time in June/July when I will also post some photos of the beach. Dragør’s port however can be enjoyed all year round and the sea was even more impressive this time of the year because of a storm approaching.
The already famous Øresunds bridge, connecting Denmark and Sweden and featured on the Danish/Swedish TV-show “The Bridge”, can be enjoyed unimpeded from a hilltop viewpoint in Dragør.
