Closing the deal: Valby Bakke

The anniversary of an important summit cheeseburger milestone is rapidly approaching. So, as to avoid the expiration of the statue of limitations – or so I do not push my luck any further on that point, I have decided to post a post.

December 10, 2007 Copenhagen, Denmark fell to the summiteers. A drizzly Monday afternoon welcomed me to Copenhagen for the first time (and last? … long story); Denmark is no Belgium, but it is home of course to a number of greats – to Hans Christian Anderson, the real Little Mermaid and Carlsberg lager. A brief trek on foot through the city took me past a local burger/pizza “joint”, The Vesterbro (see pics). I purchased my supplies wound my way through the city streets and up eventually up a hill named Valby Bakke where, in 1700-1703, King Frederik IV built the Frederiksberg Palace.


At the top, I found a park, hid from the mist heavy beneath a grove of trees and consumed a very tasty cheeseburger and admired the bronze sculpture of Adam Gottlob Oehlenschlager whose name to this day synonymous with Scandinavian romance (isn’t that an oxymoron? – curious wiki enrty).

    Is KrustyBunz starting to get scard? I can’t believe I’m seeing posts from fryingelvis. Good work in the mountains of Denmark.
