Not to be missed sight located inside the City Hall with free entry. A masterpiece of clock making with accuracy only bettered by an atomic clock!

Like one of the reviews indicated, the building from the distance seemed to be a church. Entering it you realise it is anything but a place of worship, but worth a visit. The Jens Olsen Astronomical Clock is itself worth a visit. Don't missit.

A compact but delightful display of shiny brass gears, rods and chains that claims to tell the time for the next 10,000 years or more. The surrounding material describing the design, construction and maintenance is worth a gander.

In the eastern part of this neighbourhood, visitors

has become increasingly popular. It’s only a 30 minute
bicycle ride or a 10 minute Metro trip away from the
