the architectural ensemble when looking from the Nyhavn bridge is great, modern art buildings mingle up with the Nyhavn and others. When you get closed to the opera, you notice the sheer size of roof and place. Definitely worth to stand there and lookout.

Worth a quick stop intersting design, apparently you can walk on the roof and they have annual events jumping off that roof into the water!

We had planned to do a tour of this building but in the end couldn’t get a reservation for the day we needed. We did, however, see it up close when we did the canal tour. It’s a beautifully sleek modern building that sets it...More

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

from others I heard that the experience is brilliant, and that you must look at the repertoire and choose something you want to visit. Acoustics are unbelievable
