Hello! I am going to Scandinavia in about a month, and will be visiting Ålesund, which is a Norwegian city located in the fjords. I cannot wait. I will then fly to Copenhagen, where I will spend three days, and take the train to Malmö. As such, I will be able to practice both my Danish, and my Swedish!

So, does anyone have some ideas as to what I could do in Copenhagen or Malmö?

Tack så mycket!

You are going to Ålesund! It is such a beautiful place. I am so envious:) I don't have any tips for you really, other than go off the beaten path. It's nice to do a few touristy things here and there, but you need to spend at least on day doing what the locals do, and using the language. Take a walk around and see where it takes you:) Enjoy your trip!

No, that's why I'm so jealous:) It's one of the most beautiful places I've ever seen! I want to go there, but the place I want to go to most in Norway is Kristiansand. I've heard it's nice and sunny there:)

Ålesund:

You should definitely do that! You should focus it primarily on how you got on with speaking the languages, otherwise people might downvote it.

How about some fancy smørrebrød? Try Aamann's in Copenhagen (http://www.aamanns.dk/us)

I had some in their deli upstairs from the main restaurant (http://www.aamanns.dk/us/deli-take-away3.html) a couple of years back and was glad I did.

If you happen to be in Copenhagen on a Wednesday, you need to go to Sankt Peders Bagari and order a kanelsnegel... you're welcome.

The best part about my trip to Norway was the Oslo-Bergen train ride. It's great. It has the best views. Do not take Flåmsbana, it's nothing compared to the Oslo-Norway train ride

Thank you so much for this information I just watched some Youtube videos about that train ride and the scenery looks absolutely breathtaking. Hoping to be on that train one day as well :)

My ancestors are from Malmöhus! So jealous. Take in that beautiful Skånska accent and the lovely landscape.
