If you do nothing else in Copenhagen, come to the top floors of this museum. Superbly curated, lit and air conditioned, this collection of Islamic Art is on a par with the collections in the British Museum. Completely stunning.

This museum is a fabulous collection of Middle and Far eastern objects, beautifully displayed, it might not be for everyone, and certainly people with mobility issues might find Ian hard of access, but athe objects in it are superb.

as picturesque canals and a modern harbor. The inner
city is home to the Royal Danish Theatre, which
consists of three buildings, two of which are new and
situated on the harbor front. The streets, squares and
