Operaen (Copenhagen Opera House)

The Copenhagen Opera House is currently closed to visitors, but it stands as an impressive feat of architecture just across from Nyhavn. It looks great across the water, but it’s even more impressive up close. Again I am amazed by how many buildings there are to “sight see” around Copenhagen without so much as stepping indoors. I hope you enjoy these sunset shots at Operaen.

Teglholmen/Sluseholmen, Copenhagen

One of the things I like most about Copenhagen is how walkable some of the modern, residential harbour areas are. I’ve never been in a city where it feels like you have a lot to “see” even when all you’re doing is walking past a bunch of apartments by the water.

As you will see from the pictures, there is an explanation for this – the buildings happen to be very interesting and fun to look at from an architectural standpoint. It’s also fun just to walk around, point to a bunch of apartments that look worthy of moving into, and do a bit of imaginary ‘apartment-shopping’ in your head 🙂 Enjoy!

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!
