Copenhagen is known as a bike city so what better way to get to know the city than by renting bikes! We only got scolded twice, so I thought we did pretty good! The Danes are very particular about their bike rules! We couldn't believe how many bikes were in the city, everywhere you looked people were either riding them or locking them up. I later learned that many people ride bikes because the city is very flat so it makes it easy to get around and that if you want to have a car you must 150% in taxes to the government. So thats completely insane. I would rather ride a bike too! We took our bikes and rode along the harbor checking out all the beautiful modern architecture and local swimming holes.

Fun fact: The famous singer Lukas Graham is actually from this neighborhood and his video "Mama Said" and "7 Years" features this neighborhood and is some of the only footage of this area because cameras are not allowed. So if you are interested check them out on Youtube!
After walking through Christiania we went to Paper Island which is another island with a large warehouse with some awesome markets. The style is very industrial and modern. They have booths of tons of local food and street food. It was a great place to grab a drink/ snack and relax for the afternoon!
To end our night we went to Fermentoren for some craft beer and Warpigs for some AMAZING food and craft beer. These places were in the meat packing district which was an awesome experience.
