Copenhagen Beer Celebration (again) Top 9

The flight from Stuttgart to Copenhagen, Denmark is just over an hour. We flew Scandinavian (SAS) air which provides a free non-alcoholic beverage - a life-saver when the only direct flight in the morning is at 6 a.m. (coffee!). Stuttgart airport 6 a.m. flights are surprisingly crowded so get there 90 min early vs. the... Continue Reading →
