We walked to the opera House. Stopped by few cafes with national food and liked all very much (Danish special fish). I'm still do not understand how the Opera building can have such size flat roof.

Contemporary art, history, engineering and politics in one place. The story is too long to tell here, but know that the entire music room is only connected at very, very few places in order to improve the sound in the opera. If you have a chance to see one, go for it.

Excellent view of the opera house from the Big Red Bus. The area is lovely and dotted with interesting things (a 'tropical' restaurant inside a glass dome, etc.) and several nice stops for people who wish to explore.

We did a tour inside as there was a very cold wind blowing and we needed to warm up.What a surprise! The tour guide was very excited to share details of the building, how it came to be built(a very generous donor), design details and the inner workings of backstage.....awesome. It was our lucky day.

The ugly obese duckling. An architectural nightmare in the middle of the city that locals will have to live with for decades. Compare to this the beautiful an elegant KKL hall by Jean Nouvel in Lucerne that nearly seems to float on the lake, and you start crying. The only hope is that due to global warming, sea levels will... More

After visiting over hundred different opera houses worldwide, this was something different. Henning Larsen the architect of the building had to follow, what Mr. Moller the owner of the Maersk company wanted - as he was financing the whole opera house, but at the end this is a fabulous venue. The foyer ground is covered with marmor from Sicily, three... More
