    Knippelsbro

    by King_Golo Written Jun 19, 2016

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Be warned: Knippelsbro is everything but beautiful. It's a loud, dirty, busy 4-lane bridge which connects Slotsholmen with the island of Christianshavn. The only reason why I include it as a tip in my Copenhagen pages is that you can find its iconic bridge tower pretty much everywhere. We saw it on lots of souvenirs, tourist brochures or pictures of the towers of Copenhagen, but it is also found on the 200DKK note. It's not soooo beautiful, so this is a bit of a mystery.
    Knippelsbro dates back to the 18th century and is named after Hans Knip who was bridge guard in the middle of the 17th century.

    War Memorial

    by solopes Updated Apr 8, 2016

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    I was surprised by the modesty of this memorial - close to the cathedral and the beautiful building of the university, it risks to pass unnoticed.

    I understood that Denmark had other wars, and WW2 was not so dramatic for them as for many other European countries, so discretion may be a wise idea.

    MIndelunden ...Memorial for the freedom fighters

    by TheView Updated Nov 5, 2015

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    WWII During the occupation honest daring Danes did what the government failed to do April 9th 1940. The brave risked their lives and gathered formed groups and resisted the nazi occupation. They rose in this darkest hour of our history and as one of the gravestones stats it "The best fell so the second best was able to live"

    The memorial is located next to one of the place the nazis used for executions.

    The stone here has a nice little poem I will try to translate to the best of my pour ability.

    "Boys you Boys whom died
    you lit for Denmark
    in the deepest dark
    a flaming morning red"

    This unique building was built by Christian IV in 1640. It's unique for its amazing dragon spire tower that dominates the building. It served as the Danish stock market until 1974, It now houses offices.

    Copenhagen documentary film festival has since 2003 been a reoccurring and growing event in international recognition and regular audience attendants. If you are in town during the festival, that are normally held in the end of the year, I will recommend that you visit there webpage and seek out a few film of your interest. The stages for the different film are scattered all over the city. So you might have to make little survey to find the location of the cinema for the film at hand.

    I just love the slogan of 2009 That you see on the photo ;-)

    Royal house

    by Assenczo Updated Apr 26, 2015

    Denmark is one of the not very many monarchies left in Europe.The other look-alikes are the fellow-neighbours Norway and Sweden, old imperial Britain or United Kingdom, lowland Holland with its highland buddies Belgium and Luxemburg, tiny Monaco and Liechtenstein and fractured Spain . In Copenhagen one can witness the fineries of pomp and circumstance that go with the art of ruling first hand. This activity is high up on the "things-to-do" list in a flamboyant north-European city.

    Salute!

    Enjoy the architecture

    by leics Written Sep 16, 2014

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Although little in Copenhagen is really 'old' (in my terms) it is nevertheless a most interesting place to wander on foot. There are numerous twiddly spires, plenty of dragons to spot, oddities of elaborate ornamentation.......a couple of unexpected onion domes...some rather nice 'terraced' cottages which were clearly once barracks.......ornamental brickwork.....

    There's plenty to enjoy in the city if you are interested in architectural details. :-)

    The Christianshavn experience'

    by jorgejuansanchez Written Aug 18, 2014

    The Christiania experiment started in 1970 as an autonomous community, in an area previously used by the Danish Ministry of Defense, by people sharing the ideals of freedom and anarchy.

    When I was very young, in the hippies’ times, I dreamed to go to Christianshavn, a quarter of Copenhagen, but finally I made acquaintance with somebody and only got hitchhiking to Hamburg, via Amsterdam.
    Finally I went to Christiania in the year 2002.

    Christianshavn is good for a short visit and drink a beer, but not to live there if you are a young boy.
    In the entrance they openly offered me marihuana and I, being a very demure person, refused.
    Except in several individuals whose attitudes seemed philosophical, I only saw avidity for money and elementary lack of hygiene. But the visit was a nostalgic experience.

    I left with relief in direction to my favourite place, Nyhavn 17, to drink a beer with herrings, thanking God for not having gone there in the past to spoil my adolescence when my personality and values were not yet formed.

    Sankt Hans Torv

    by illumina Written Aug 12, 2014

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Sankt Hans Torv is a public square in Nørrebro, just off Nørrebrogade and not far from the Lakes. It was created in 1993 as part of an urban renewal programme and is now known for its cafes and the large sculpture by Jørgen Haugen Sørensen at its centre. It is also host to concerts during Distortion and the Jazz festival among other events. It's a nice place to sit out on a sunny day.

    Huset KBH

    by illumina Updated Aug 9, 2014

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Huset (the house) in Magstræde is a cultural centre, with approx 1400 annual events spread over 7 diverse stages with everything from live music, theatre performances, stand up comedy, spoken word and a small cinema.

    On the top floor is a theatre and concert hall, the third floor houses a music cafe, which I believe is a practice area for bands as well as a venue; the second floor is a cinema and bar, the first floor is a Jazz club, and there is a cafe on the ground floor (which has the biggest collection of board games I have ever seen!).

    I have been to the cinema here fairly regularly as there is an international film club showing great old movies for a good price (usually 30-50 kr). Check the website for listings.

    They have regular screenings of Rocky Horror Picture Show, and as of 2014 Big Lebowski drink along nights (the film and 10 shots of white russians for 100kr!). Usually in early August there is a week of open-air screenings (in the courtyard next to the cafe) which has included Flash Gordon for the last two years!

    The Tobacco Museum is no longer here

    by jonkb Updated Dec 10, 2013

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The tobacco museum is no longer in Copenhagen. I still have the tip here, so that readers that read it before can still see the tip. The museum moved to Århus (Den Gamle By)

    The old text follows:

    There's a nice little permanent exibition in the basement of the tobbacco shop on str?get.

    Entrance is free, and you will not have to buy anything.

    The exibition shows how tobbacco was used (and is stillused today) by any member of the human race. You will see anything from the early age of smoking to snuff.
