Denmark-part 3: December 21, 2012

And, let there be sunlight.  There was real sun today--even more than the December average of 2 hours per day.  Today, we visited the Rosenborg Slot a royal palace that houses the Danish Crown Jewels.  It is a small palace built as a summer residence by Christian IV in 1606.  It has been a museum since the early 19th century.

Most of the afternoon and evening was spent at Tivoli Gardens.  The Christmas lights and decorations were magical.

Tivoli is a year-round amusement park with rides, restaurants, concerts.  We froze our butts off.
