The Opera House itself is beautiful. The "gathering spaces/interval bars" have the most wondrous lighting. The auditorium is exquisite. We've been to various productions here and none has disappointed. There is a restaurant that serves a several course pre-performance meal. These are always breathtakingly delicious and worth the early arrival. I'm already looking forward to Christmas when we have a... More

Even though this structure doesn't really 'fit" the surroundings it is still none the less ... impressive. A very wealthy man donated all the money before he died to build it, to improve the "culture" of Copenhagen. The acoustics are excellent.

I had to cool down after a stay in an extremely hot, oxygen-deprived hostel room so i took the 9A bus to 'Holmen - Operaen'. It's the last stop before the bus turns around towards the main train station again. I picked one of the benches with amazing views t under the biggest shade-providing roof in the city. Had a...

We went to see a dance play and really enjoyed the interior. We sat on the balcony and had a good view but I think I'd prefer to be closer on the floor to get more "involved" in the play and the actors. There's both a bar and a restaurant of which we only used the bar. Semi expensive as... More

Across the water from the main part of Copenhagen it is worth a visit round just to enjoy the form of the building and with great views back to the Marble Church.

One of the most beautiful opera houses I have visited. Unfortunately tickets for Dirty Dancing were sold only online, therefore I could not appreciate acoustics and the show.

The opera house in Copenhagen is a unique iconic structure which has come to define Copenhagen. It was built at a cost of over half billion and then donated to the city by the owner of Maersk Shipping. The roof of the building extends out to the water line and is something to behold. It can be seen across from... More

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.
