    After a business event in Malmö the previous days, I took advantage of the afternoon to discover Copenhagen...and it wasn't enough. Very lively city, the old town, the harbor, many monuments, a warm atmosphere, especially on a Friday evening. I will come back one weekend in city-trip to better appreciate the charms of this city

    A lovely historical and decorative surprise.The detail in some of the miniature items and facial expressions in the paintings was delightful and sometimes funny. It also seemed unusual that you could look really closely at some of the exhibits and see how they were created.

    Ticket and admission conditions could have been better as it was out of season.
    The castle, on the other hand, was very impressive, and with a good app's info, it was worth the visit.
    The cafe with an employee, for a whole busload of guests, as well as a handful of visitors, was not good enough.
    Many different museums, made time fly by, we ended up being there for almost 4 hours, and could have spent more.

    The striking Black Diamond building is a modern waterfront extension to the Royal Danish Library's old building.

    The nickname is a reference to its polished black granite cladding and irregular angles. The Black Diamond designed by Danish architects Schmidt, Hammer, Lassen was completed in 1999.

    The atrium with a huge glazed front facing the harbor is stunning. The facilities include also a 600-seat auditorium, the Queen's Hall, used for concerts, theatrical performances, and conferences.

    A visit here is always special in the ethereal sense.
    We find it difficult to drive past Aalborg without stopping in, at least for a peek. We were staying in Rimso, Djursland, visiting family and the bunch of us were headed up to Skagen for the day. For my brother, who was travelling with us, this was uncharted territory, so it made even more sense to stop to see this Viking burial site. Obviously, nothing has changed, indeed, time has stood still here for many years.
    As we were headed up to Grenen to stand on this spit of sand, observing the two seas, Skagerrak and Kattegat, merge, time was limited, so we didn't make it into the museum. Too bad, the museum, combined with the visit to the Hoje, brings to life the history behind this area so well! Nest time for sure.
    Lindholm Hoje is a very well maintained historical site and the museum, has a great deal of artifacts which stem from the Viking period. It also has a section that deals with history that goes back many more years. The Limfjord area, including Aalborg, should certainly be on the list of those interested in the history of this unique area.

    Denmark is a wonderful country! It offers up inspiring cultural experiences and very unique natural wonders. My family loves it, of course, we are prejudiced, this is where we are from.
    We were visiting family in Djursland and we were spending the day driving up to the "Tip of Denmark". On our drive north, we spent an hour visiting the Viking graves at Lindholm Hoj, before heading up to Skagen. We had been here before and of course we were looking forward to a repeat visit. You can take the "Sandormen", a wagon pulled by a tractor out to the Grenen, the furthermost spit of The Skagen Odde, something that all who journey here must do. There is so much to see here, more then just standing on the spit of sand, feeling the waters of both the Skagerak and Kattegat, lapping at your feet from two directions. After you have done this, head into the town for a walk along the streets, lined with red-tiled roofs with white trimmings, yellow plastered walls and white fenced houses, so typical of the area. The little town is bustling with shops, even some selling the famed Skagen watches, and of course, bakeries selling famous Danish treats, (might I suggest, Krages Bageri?)
    On your drive back, you must stop into see the Tilsandede Kirke, a 14th century church that was forced into closure by the encroaching sand, then, afterwards go for a walk on the sand dunes of Rabjerg Mile.
    It is no wonder that "The Skagen Painters" were "drawn' to the area.
    Certainly a visit to Northern Jylland is incomplete, without visiting The Skagen Odde!

    Wow, what an amazing place to visit in a stunning location and it's free and open 24hrs.
    So we arrived one hour before the tourist centre opened (10am to 5pm) and had to take the longer walk from the car park rather than via the information centre. The castle is accessible 24/7. This turned out to be a good thing, as we had the place to ourselves for the first hour and took some great photos and the atmosphere was eerie and windswept. The path up is steep and uneven, not suitable for strollers, wheelchairs or people with mobility issues.
    The views are superb in all directions, there is signage in Danish, English and German.
    Fascinating history and stunningly well preserved/restored.
    The visitor centre was open on our way back with toilets, a cafe, souvenir shop and beautifully presented history of the castle.
    The views from the top terrace of the visitor centre are spectacular.
    All of it was free.
    Apparently, you have to pay for parking which goes towards preservation of the historical site.
    We visited pre season and there was no one in sight pay.
    Must do on Bornholm. Well worth it.

    Visible from many parts of the city, it was thrilling to arrive at our reserved time and begin the climb.

    After the initial internal steps, emerging to outside and the spiral was grand. It’s a unique ascent.

    Arriving at the top, in the clear afternoon we had superb vistas over the lovely cityscapes. From industrial, wind turbines, the many spires, green spaces and residential.

    All wonderful and again the low-rise nature of the city.

    One of the attractions of the famous fortress is the gallery of performances of Hamlet within his putative castle. Richard Burton in his 1954 role is great as is that other famous thespian John Gielgud.

    Having seen the castle numerous times during our daytrip to Helsingør, it was delightful to visit it come evening time when it looked even more evocative.

    A procession of fine rooms were on the visit, some with grand tapestries. A Royal Chapel is beautiful with exquisite wood carvings and a grand organ.

    Its underground corridors and rooms, casemates, are worth exploring and here Holger Danske is to be seen.

    Of all the palaces available for tours in Europe, this is one of the better ones. The furnishings are fine, and the wall coverings unique. Much of it is actually modern in origin, but it is still impressive. Do take the accessory visit to the kitchen.

    It’s a stunning edifice with an exterior all in red brick, that continues within. Vast in size it proclaims the importance it has held in Danish life down many centuries and is the most important church in the country.

    Grandeur abounds inside. Arches and columns lead along the expansive nave to the exquisite high altar.

    Queen Margrethe I died in 1412 and her remains were eventually brought to the Cathedral. Down the following centuries Monarchs' remains were placed in numerous Chapels that were added as their final resting place.

    I enjoyed the architecture of the tower and the views and was particularly impressed by the detailed information provided in flyers at various points. I sure didn't know the tower contains a hollow core that served as Denmark's center point for its first accurate map in the 1760s?

    The museum is great for what it is, and I'm sure kids would find it all a lot more fascinating. I really enjoyed it, but it wasn't earth shattering. It's a super easy train ride from Copenhagen Central Station, and Roskilde is a neat town with some other stuff to do and a lot of charm. I'd definitely package this museum in with a visit to the town, but not as a standalone trip.
