You saw the wine they kept in the Rosenborg Slot?  Grin

They keep the wine in the cellar with a metal gate and lock. I do not see any labels but I was told that they are still producing their own wine. The Denmark royal family keeps wine for several hundreds year and most of them German white. Nowadays, they will top up the barrels so that the wines are NV wine.

On anther occasion during my visit, I found that the Denmark Royal family has some investment in France wine too, a Cahors chateau Ch. de Cayx

Bathing place? They don't have place to bath where they live in the palace?


I think they had. But this one, to be exact is like a bathing house. The size is relatively small and the whole ground floor served only one function, bathing. The upper floor has a study room, rest room. etc. There is a link bridge on the left hand side to other building and some other buildings scattered around the whole park.

Second day we went to Łazienki Palace on foot, just a 15 minute walk from the hotel. The weather was cold but felt comfortable with the fresh air.

Łazienki Palace was once the bathing place of the royal family. It is situated in the largest city park in Warsaw. Baroque style with well decoration. Before we enter to the palace, we passed by the Chopin monument at the west entrance of the park.

The palace is in the middle of a pond. In summer, the view from the park is beautiful but what we had was a layer of ice on the surface of the pond, melting in the far end.

Before we headed to airport, we tasted the French hotdog. A baguette with a sausage inside with tons of ketchup......not bad.

Copenhagen airport is quite large, with a very large duty free shop. Their staff are nice and friendly too.

We took a flight at 10:00pm and back to HK at 8:00 pm the next day, having a transit time at Doha for 2 hours.

In all, Poland is a surprisingly interesting place to visit. It is tidy and clean, relatively lower cost for food and hotel, rubbish readily accessible, toll free toilet and comparatively safe.

Copenhagen is very safe too, I kid that with such high cost of living, it is not easy to be a thief because it would be very demanding to earn a living as a thief. Having said that, we found that the price in supermarket is cheap, i.e. labour cost may be very high in Denmark.

Germany is in the middle among the three. Quite enjoyable too

That concludes our Easter trip.

Let me know your view below. Thanks.

In terms of the contents, given that we had the experience in Heineken, they are quite usual. The way to brew, materials, process, etc. The last part of the tour is beer tasting and they can offer a lot of different beer, far more than Heineken.

Some of the rare version of bottle are there too. I have never seen a double magnum beer......

Up till now, we went more sightseeing spots than we planned. That means we made good use of the Copenhagen Card.

We will take a night flight back to HK so we still had an afternoon free. At last, we decided to go to Carlsberg brewery. 2 years ago we went to Heineken Brewaery and we thought that would be a good comparison. In terms of contribution to the country, Carlsberg does a lot. They contributed a lot of money, antique, even building to the country. They also set up various funds for charity, arts, education, etc. Hence you can always see the founder J. C. Jacobsen's potrait in palace, castle, etc.

We had to be there at noon because those soldiers will change the shift at noon. It is almost an exhibition as there are policemen guiding the tourist where to stand, which angle is good to watch, when you can get closer, etc. Like a live show......

Anyway, the scale is much large than that in England. Herebelow are some pictures. After that, we went into the museum inside the Amalienborg. Nothing special but an exhibition of the foreign work of the royal family. Each room is dedicated to a King or Queen of Denmark with their chosen decoration.

We had to finish our visit to Rosenborg Slot by 11:30 because we had to go to Amalienborg before noon. Amalienborg is the recent living place of royal family. A large castle with 4 different but similar building block.

Take a closer look at the third picture you will see two royal soldiers guarding the castle.
