Cherry blossom heaven in Copenhagen

Once a year people from all parts of Copenhagen flock to Bispebjerg Kirkegård, a big graveyard in the Northwestern part of the city. The reason; The cherry trees are blooming! And it is indeed a sight worth the journey. The avenue of pink blossoms is beyond pretty and fascinating.

This week is officially cherry blossom season so naturally I had to go too. And I am still high on pink. My friend Vicky and I made a day of it and went on a road trip. We had so much fun and made several stops along the way to visit some of my favourite architectural spots – I brought my camera so I could share them with you (in another post very soon). Today I want to share a little piece of cherry heaven with you.

We ended up stopping by twice – once during the day when the sun was high in the sky and again on our way back during golden hour. How could we refuse such a golden (pun intended) opportunity. It is literally the most photographed spot in Copenhagen this week.

      It’s amazing. Pictures doesn’t even do it justice. It feels like stepping into a pink floral world when you walk the avenue ♡

      Thank you. Unfortunately not, they only last about a week as I write in the post. It’s a short but beautiful life.

    Jeg elsker billedet af dig – så fint :) Bispebjerg Kirkegård er skøn – vi elsker stedet, men det er jo også i vores ‘hood’ :)

      Tusind tak, søde Anya. Det var ret grænseoverskridende at poste et billede af mig selv ;) Hvor skønt at have disse smukke træer tæt på – en skam at det ikke varer længere. Hav den skønneste Bededagsweekend.
