Gammel Strand in Copenhagen

This street sign hangs in a street in Copenhagen. Well, it is obvious what the name of the street is. Yes, Gammel Strand.

So what’s the deal? Why is a reason to daydream? First of all, who needs a reason to daydream? Secondly, if you speak German, I guess, you’re already daydreaming. I can see you smiling.

For all non German speakers, “GammelN” (with N at the end) in German means “to bum around”. “Strand” means “beach”. Do I need to explain more? Bum Around Beach. Or Beach To Bum Around. It’s your choice.

I’m so sorry for exploding the lovely Danish language for my daydream addiction. And I hope I can make it up by explaining what it means. Gammel Strand means in English “Old Beach” and it is a street and public square in the center of Copenhagen. Not far from here you can see the famous colorful houses.

By the way, “Gammel” (without N at the end) in German means also somehow old but in a negative way old. Ok, but now enough of language lessons. Please carry on daydreaming.

In my blog I give credit to content of others. Please do the same when using my content. Thank you!
