My wife and I had the pleasure of seeing Porgy and Bess in the well functioning opera. Ideal with a boatride from dinner across the water in our Admiral hotel with return after the performance

Book a tour to go backstage. We were friendly received by a Danish couple who was actually entitled to have a full Danish tour, but they suggested doing the tour in English as there were only the 4 of us. 2 Danish 2 Swiss. We had a super time, saw, heard and learned a lot.

The one hour guided tour is very interesting and educative. We learned a lot about the hidden side of an opera house. The architecture is really something amazing with unique "play music on the wall" properties. We combined this visit with a pleasant walk from Christiansborg along the canal.

Our hotel was facing the opera house and it looked so smart, we really wanted to visit and look at the architecture. Cycled out there one day with a view to having lunch but found the building closed for the summer (including the restaurant). Blagged my way in to use the loo and it looked amazing inside, which made me... More

We took the guided tour of this incredible building. Even if you're not an opera buff, visit the building - it's striking. We walked, and it took about 30 minutes, but there's a bus and ferry too.
