Grundtvigs Kirke, Copenhagen

This week’s version of a ‘Sunday Museum’ will be this awe inspiring expressionist-style church in Bispejberg, Copenhagen – Grundtvigs Kirke. It’s free to enter, and I arrived maybe a half hour before its closing time, and basically had the whole church to myself. Here are the photos I took…Happy Sunday!

Frederiksborg Slot (Take 3)

Welcome to another ‘Sunday Museum’! This will be the final instalment of my entries on Frederiksborg Slot (click here to see the castle chapel and here for the gardens). The inside of this castle will show you why this place rivals the ornateness of Versailles – there are so many different rooms, decorations, and details that get lost in this big place. I did try to capture some of the details that drew my eye, so have a look below and watch the details get progressively more complex!

Frederiksborg Slotshave

Last Sunday, I posted some images of the Frederiksborg Castle chapel. This week I’ll share with you some of the images from the castle ground gardens – it’s totally free to walk around and honestly I was super impressed with the grounds. In the past I’ve visited Versailles, in France, and I can see why this place is considered the Versailles of Denmark – but I’ll dare say it’s nicer than Versailles. It’s clean, less crowded, doesn’t cost an arm and a leg to get in. Simply a beautiful walk to take on a sunny bright day a short train ride from Copenhagen city centre. Have a look below!

Frederiksborg Castle (Chapel)

It’s been a while since I’ve done a ‘Sunday Museum’ post! Though today’s post is not exactly a ‘museum’ (more like a castle) I thought it would be nice to share with you these photos of the Frederiksborg Castle chapel. There was a wedding going on the first time I tried to enter the place, but I was patient and waited it out so I could take a peek inside. And I’m glad I did – just look at the place!

Also, stay tuned for more photos from this opulent castle grounds in the coming weeks 🙂

DAC (Danish Architecture Center), Copenhagen

Okay, here’s a little break from my roadtrip re-caps – I’m back with a Sunday Museum post! Although, I may be cheating a little bit here because DAC is not a typical museum and I didn’t actually pay for the entry to go inside. But if the freely accessible parts of the place are anything to go by, I think it would be a good place to visit with family/kids because there’s a lot of tactile stuff, like a big slide, outdoor play area, and fun colours around the place.

It is an architecture center after all, so I hope you enjoy my ‘architectural’ shots of this place 🙂

It’s also located very centrally around some of the nicest areas to walk around in the city, in my opinion.

Have a great Sunday, and see you next week for another re-cap of my Eurotrip 🙂
