Copenhagen Day Two - Part 2

Today I've written about the second half of my second day in Copenhagen. See the first day and the first half of day two in my previous posts.

So after filling up on burritos at Paper Island we decided that it would be a good idea to climb a huge church tower. We'd passed the Church of our Saviour on the way to get food and decided it would be great to go up. Matt isn't to good with heights but he is getting better and at least trying, so he said he wanted to go up the Spire. However when we got the mid level, after climbing up very steep and eerie stairs, we discovered it was a very small area and also slightly leveled down towards the railing, i.e it felt like you had to go towards the rails. Matt didn't feel comfortable there so he decided to go down whilst I made the silly decision to go on further up.

Now it doesn't look to far on the image below, but let me tell you it was very scary. Going up spiral stairs around the central spire was crazy and then more so was that the railings felt so open. The whole time I felt like I was going to fall back and as you got higher the stairs got ever so smaller in width. When I was almost at the top there was a cluster of people waiting to reach the summit. At this point I had to sit down and grab on to the railings I was so scared! I got so far up that the stairs were only big enough for one person, stayed there for a minute for pictures then descended down. It was great to say I did it, but oh so scary!

Next up, when we were safety on the ground, we went on the long walk to see the Little Mermaid. Gifted to Copenhagen by a brewery owner, the Little Mermaid sits on a cluster of rocks around 20/30 minutes from the town centre. She is much smaller than you'd expect but oh so elegant and worth a visit.

After our big day of walking we headed back to the hotel to get showered and ready for tea. After checking the Visit Copenhagen website we decided to go to one of the top 10 places they'd listed for steak in the city. The restaurant we went to was called MASH and they served a whole host of different types of beef steak with varying prices. Matt went for the Danish 90 day aged rib eye, whilst I went for a Danish tenderloin which was an eye watering £40, but hey, we were on our jollies! We got a portion of chips, macaroni cheese, Bearnaise and peppercorn sauce to accompany our meat.

The food was gorgeous and the service was brilliant.  The waitress even offered to show us the pieces of meat to help us decide but we declined. We were very happy with our choices when they came. We went to eat around 9.30pm and they were very accommodating as they didn't close till 11pm which was great for us dilly dalliers!
After all that food we walked back to our hotel and got some sleep ready for our next big day!
