Very competent guided tour with many history and architectonic overviews, splendid out views, beautiful opera room, impressive material and the backstage rooms were so great and interesting how everything works. Take your 1.5 hour for this very nice trip!

Copenhagen is a wonderful blend of old and new architecture and the 'new' opera house stood out from all the 'old' buildings on the canal cruise. We did not visit inside. Maybe next time?

A fine example of the modern thinking of the cities architects, there are a number of the floors that sit below the waterline

We only admired it from across the water but it's stunning from that perspective. Copenhagen is great at mixing old and new and this is one of the most beautiful modern buildings.

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

Hi Rina, why don't you have a look at the website to see what are the timings for the Opera House. Similarly, for the bus, the route map shows all the stops. Enjoy !

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
