Amazingly many locals didn't seem to have visited this museum - the first public museum in Denmark. Well worth a visit to see the prolific and sensitive work of this Danish artist - who gained international fame during his 40 years in Italy. Start with...More

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
