This internationally acclaimed opera house with it's grand scale and proportions sits aloof on Copenhagen's harbor front, away from the other bustling parts of the lively city. Unfortunately my visit to Copenhagen was in the winter and over a weekend that didn't have any performances, so all that I managed to do was walk on the grounds around this magnificent... More

What a beautiful, modern building. I was especially impressed by the foyer and lighting! We went to see La Triviata as a birthday treat. The music was immaculate, the sets and costumes on a grand scale to match the setting. The seating is comfortable and you get a great view where-ever you sit. As it was a special occassion, we...

Very lovely architecture and structure. We only saw this from our boat tour however it was wonderful to see it non the less. I would've liked to have seen the interior but I'm not sure weather booking a show would be the best bet to get a real feel to the place.

I really like this operahouse. The building is beautiful outside and inside. There is no reason to go there, if you are not going to an opera, as you can see it from many places in the city. It is not easily accesible and there is Nothing there but the operahouse, and it is probably closed outside concert times.

One of the iconich buildings in Copenhagen. You can get a guide tour but the best way to expirience the house is to see a performance.

Last time we visited it was for the new year eve concert ,and while the quality of the sound is great, and the architecture by night ,with the sparkling huge chandeliers and the city over the channel are great, the artistic production was a little bit disappointing ,but still a nice experience . The transport was impressingly taking care of,... More

We have seen The Opera House 3 different asides and its really an amazing building. You can see it the best when you take an harbour bus.

The view from the other side of the river is spectacular, especially if it`s not a rainy day. We didn't visited inside but from outside it`s very relaxing to just sit and watch is and it`s surroundings.

Staying in Christianshavn

Neighborhood Profile
Just across one of the many bridges from Indre By, you’ll find Christianshavn. An eclectic area with old brick lanes, houses dating back to the 16th century, and canals which are home to many boats and ships, some of which has been turned into restaurants or even serve as fully furnished homes. The best known attraction in Chistianshavn is Christiania, a “free town” of residents who squat on a former military area. However just a stone’s throw away from Christiania, you’ll find some of the most fashionable waterfront apartment buildings in Copenhagen as well as the splendid Royal Opera House.
