I find the building itself very distinct; both from a distance and up close. And since the area around is so open, you can get clear view of the building from all angles and enjoy the different materials and colors. And the view from the square in front of the buliding towards the royal palace and the Copenhagen skyline is... More

There are guided tours in English of the Opera House on Saturdays and Sundays. Even if you have no interest in opera, the architecture of this impressive building with its beautiful lights, and the insight into the technology that goes into productions are fascinating. We had a very lively and informative guide whose information also touched on aspects of being... More

Copenhagen Opera House is amazing. The location is on the sea shore so you can see the beautiful building from the sea. It is a change for the architecture and you can imagine other building shape like castle.

It is hard to miss this impressive building built at the edge of the water. It is very modern which seems slightly out of place to me, but nonetheless very eye-catching. Very impressive inside as well although we didn't see a show but heard that the acoustics are wonderful. Definitely worth a look.

Copenhagen Opera House is situated by the harbour opposite the main Amalienborg Castle. It was opened in 2005. The architecture of the building is a work of art and is truly magnificent - "neo futurism". It is a very modern building. The cost of building it was in excess of half a billion US Dollars. It has a seating capacity... More

We came to watch La Traviata, which was a gorgeous performance. The settings were spectacular, and the view from the Opera House is wothout comparison. But we couldnt find our seats. And we weren't the only ones confused by the lack of directions. It was impossible to figure out the signage, and I saw at least three other parties that... More

One of Copenhagen's most modern buildings and easily viewed from the harbour cruise or from the site of the old/new libraries.

We just saw it from across the river, but it is a cool site to visit and definitely in the path of a good tour, so spend a few minutes to check it out.

This great building is very impressive – if you have the time, try and get in for a show. You can go by foot, car or water

Staying in Christianshavn

Neighborhood Profile
Christianshavn
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.
