Views from Maersk Tower, Københavns Universitet

I feel privileged to work in two of the best buildings/complexes of the university campus – my office space which is in the heart of the center, near the botanical gardens, and Panum, which is where I have my gym and teaching related duties.

And let me tell you…the award-winning Maersk tower in Panum by C.F. Møller architects in the Panum complex has, I think, the best views of the city. You heard it here first! 😉 I’ll share with you some exclusive shots from the viewpoint at the top of the tower below…

I know, these views practically motivate me to come into university all the time 🙂 Please do check back on my page for my next post, which will showcase some sunset photos from this building!

Rundetaarn, Copenhagen

The round tower (Rundetaarn) is a modest structure tucked away smack dab in the middle of town. It’s a great vantage point to admire the charms of the city from above, and definitely a ‘must do’ activity if you are visiting Copenhagen even just for a day, thanks to its proximity to the centre and the relatively little time it takes to climb up this stair-less tower (it’s a spacious, stepless, winding spiral upwards). For a capital city, there is relatively few ‘high rise’ buildings in Copenhagen so you get plenty of unobstructed views far and wide from this tower.

I just love the iconic burnt orange and mint coloured roofs against the familiar silhouettes of city landmarks, with smatterings of construction in between, and some more modern structures in the background like CopenHill (the artificial ski slope you see below – I will post about this place soon!)

Thought this shot was a nice one to end the post on – it’s the beautiful Marmorkirken peeking out!
