On a tour we did the guide made reference a few times to the Danish architect Bjarke Bundgaard Ingels. Looking him up we saw the exhibition was on. It makes you stop and think a building or space is more than that. The impact of...More

I appreciate that admission is free Wednesday afternoons, but I personally didn't like anything about this place. The art exhibits just made me feel queezy. Maybe some people like that, but I don't think many do. The floor was covered in gravel, so completely impassible...More

The Kunsthal Charlottenborg is a museum of modern art and there were some really strange yet interesting looking designs on display. Kids were rather amused ! You can easily spend an hour or so here.

OK so it is right off Nyhavn where one goes to drink and eat, but if you are interested in art, this is worth a look. There are four big exhibit halls on the second floor, well designed off of a light filled central hall....More

When I visited this museum had an exhibit called Whistleblowers and Vigilantes. The displays are truly thought provoking. Check it out -- you'll be glad that you did.

I wandered in on the basis of the Lesbos lifejackets colourfully arranged on the exterior of the building by Ai Weiwei - this visitor attraction is for people who are interested in politically sensitive issues. I was stunned by a variety of exhibitions: Whistleblowers and...More

We normally go to Kunsthal Charlottenborg for the Spring Exhibition every year. This year it was rather disappointing. It was hard to see why the different works had been chosen for this year Spring Exhibition. Hope for better works next year.

it is a rather small museum, there were four parallel exhibitions/ installations, of which 2 I found really interesting. Very friendly and knowledgeable staff at reception. A lot of video-art, Lockers available, no cafe (but enough of those in the neighbourhood). The spaciousness of the...More

I was actually on my way to another museum, Louisiana, during my only day in Copenhagen- but the installation on the outside of the building was so intriguing I had to enter. The whole exterior front of the Kunsthal towards Nyhavn is covered by sacks...More

This is the heart of old town Copenhagen, with its
blend of charming old buildings and bold new
architecture, broad avenues and tiny streets as well
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
venues of the inner city and its surrounding
