Spring in Copenhagen | Where to Find the Flowers

Spring is Springing in the Danish Capital

Daffodils, tulips and cherry blossoms are Blooming again

Get your cameras ready. Spring in Copenhagen is truly beautiful. Especially on a sunny bluebird day like today. And if you live here, you’ve earned it.

Thank you to everyone who added their travel posts to the community link up last week. We had a huge selection of diverse and inspiring posts from around the world!
