Den Konglige Biblioteks Have

So I’ve shown you The Black Diamond (Den Sorte Diamant) a while back, but not this gem of a garden hidden behind it. I intended to share these photos much earlier, but I honestly there are so many pictures piling up on my computer that I forget about, and I can’t keep track of what I’ve shared already on this blog, ha. I’m going to have to start organising my categories a bit better 🙂 But this just goes to show that Copenhagen is an endlessly beautiful and picturesque city. A true gem for photographers.

Den Konglige Biblioteks Have (The Royal Library Garden) is a little garden sanctuary tucked away in the middle of the city, a short distance from The Black Diamond. It is a really peaceful place to walk around – there are cute little benches and chairs dotted around, a fountain in the middle of the garden, and a statue of the Danish philosopher Søren Kierkegaard. I know I probably say that every park I’ve been to in Copenhagen is my “favourite”, but well…this special place is too 🙂

The Black Diamond, Copenhagen

First things first. What is The Black Diamond? It’s this onyx-like structure which is an extension of the Royal Danish Library. Take a look below.

It’s got some nice views facing the waterfront:

When you face away from the water, you face the Danish War Museum which is just across the road from The Black Diamond.

Do keep scrolling, because the coolest features of this building are yet to come.

Inside this building is a massive open hall that reaches all the way up…
And up…
And up.
This photo kind of looks like one of those impossible M.C. Escher illusions to me, ha
Really liked all the interesting views from each floor of this place.
The views by the water cycling back out weren’t too bad either.
