A winter getaway, accompanied by our little dog, through Mons Klint and Copenhagen

So our next step was Denmark. Before reaching Copenhagen, we took a break to hike to Mons Klint, where we enjoyed the panoramic view of the Baltic Sea and the surrounding nature.


Mons Klint is a majestic cliff located on the Møn island in Denmark, offering breathtaking views of the Baltic Sea and the surrounding natural landscapes. It is one of the most spectacular sites in the country. We walked for several hours with our dog, who was very happy to run and play in nature.

The cliff, 128 meters high, extends over a length of 6 kilometers and is composed of chalk. The formation of the cliff is the result of the geological activity that took place millions of years ago, when the sea covered this part of Denmark. Today, Mons Klint is a major tourist site in Denmark, attracting nature lovers, hikers, amateur geologists and photographers. You can walk along the hiking trail along the cliff, offering a breathtaking view of the crystal clear waters of the Baltic and the surrounding landscapes. Mons Klint is an ideal destination for all those who want to discover the raw beauty and richness of Danish nature.


Once arrived in Copenhagen, a picturesque city known for its colorful architecture, canals and bridges, as well as its dynamic culture. If you are a history enthusiast, an art lover or simply looking for relaxation, you will certainly find something to enjoy in this fascinating city. Our accommodation being in the city center, we obviously saw Rådhuspladsen Square; City Hall Square. It's one of the most emblematic squares in Copenhagen and is surrounded by historic buildings, restaurants, cafes and shops. The Place de l'Hôtel de Ville is dominated by the imposing City Hall building, built in neo-Gothic style in 1905. The town hall building is famous for its 105-meter high tower that offers a panoramic view of the city. During major events, the square is often used as a gathering place for locals and tourists.


Copenhagen is known for being a very welcoming city for cyclists. You can rent a bike and explore the city at your own pace, discovering the most remote and charming corners of the city. We didn't do it, because with the cold it was in January, we would have ended up completely frozen! One of the jewels of Copenhagen is its historic district of Nyhavn. This picturesque neighborhood lined with colorful houses is the ideal place to walk along the canals, have a drink in one of the many outdoor bars or enjoy delicious food in one of the many restaurants in the neighborhood. Besides, my dog was delighted to take a little break in one of the bars, comfortably installed in a chair with a small blanket!


After our visit to the historic district, we went to the Amalienborg Palace, another must-see place to visit in Copenhagen. This is the official residence of the Danish royal family and the ideal place to learn more about the history and culture of Denmark. You can also attend the changing of the guard in front of the palace, a ceremony that takes place every day at noon. Not far from Amalienborg Palace, we went to see the famous bronze statue of Edvard Eriksen representing a mermaid from Andersen's fairy tale.


After these 3 days spent in Copenhagen, my husband, my dog and I take the road to Stockholm, Sweden. We will join friends for 5 days in one of the most beautiful cities in Europe.
