Hi there - helmets are indeed not required as that would make a lot of people stop biking as it would mess up hair ( and have you drag a helmet with you ) and require people to wash or ajust before work or social events..


We had 21 cycklist deaths in 2012 in the entire country - so statistically you are more likely to be murdered than die on your bike ( risk are extremely slim for both ) and helmets would at most have saved 2 of those, so it is as it should be: voluntary..

Copenhagen has now come firmly onto my radar, and on to my 'to visit' list - since there are now flights direct from Liverpool Airport.

FREKI, it's your good friend here visiting your thread for the first time, and let me tell you just a few words about your photo collection:

Copenhagen, through your eyes and lens, is simply magnificent and breathtaking! I just couldn't imagine a capital city filled with neatly-arranged buildings that are nearly the same height, with colorful exteriors, lots of shops, hundreds of cyclists, long canals, tons of boats, a myriad of buses, wide streets and sidewalks... Phew, the list can go on and on, and your city looks truly fantastic! No wonder many, many people would love to go to your city, and Copenhagen is now on my must-visit cities list. I find your city to be clean, efficient, environmentally-friendly, very sociable... Too many good things that I can think of that San Francisco shares quite a lot of! And I'm happy to tell you that I can visit your place with a nonstop flight from here to your place starting April, making the journey quicker and more relaxing.

Excellent shots, mate! That's what photography is indeed all about! With that, I'll tell you: I'm definitely looking forward to your next photo set!

a very lovely city - the beautiful and well-maintained old buildings and the pedestrian-friendly streets. Indeed, a perfect place to spend a holiday.

I visited this city 1 month ago, and I liked it very much.

Does anyone else watch this show called 'Clown' forgot what it is in Danish. It's set in Copenhagen and is about this guy that always puts his foot in it, satirical and funny imho, often leaving me in stitches.

It's called "Klovn" in Danish ( meaning "Clown" )..


I'm pretty surprised it made it outside our borders - such fairly dark Danish humour is typically even too much for the Norwegians - personally I like it a lot and have the series and movie ( if you haven't seen the movie you should - it's pretty great )


I'd be very curious as to where you have seen the show and if it was on TV ( dubbed or with subtitles? )

SBS TV Channels in Australia...public-owned free-to-air channels with a cutting edge documentary, world sport (Tour de France, Champions League etc) and multicultural program focus...very, very good channels. An excellent alternative to the free-to-air commercial channels garbage we are saturated with. SBS and the 'traditional' public broadcaster ABC are brilliant.

Klovn is great.

We also have crime dramas from Denmark which are very popular.

Here is a typical day's viewing on SBS.

Actually there was also a funny series that played on SBS from Norway...but forgot what it's called now. It's about an American gangster who goes into hiding to a quiet Norwegian village and the machinations which develop there.

All programs are subtitled, never dubbed.

Great - I had no idea it aired outside the borders and certainly not in other continents
