Yes, we admit it: we like Copenhagen. And not only for the Copenhagen hotels, but for the city as a whole. You get there easily as it is one of the larger flight hubs in Europe, and traveling from the airport to the city centre is quick and smooth as well. Once in the city centre, you find everything you need within a coverable area.
There are plenty of hotels in the city, so even if you are just interested in trying new lodgings Copenhagen is a great place for you. But today, we’ll recommend more of a cultural experience in Denmark.
Visit the Glyptotek
At the Glyptotek you can divulge in all things ancient. Here you’ll find an extensive collection of work of art and archaeological objects. There are several exhibitions covering different regions and time periods.
The exhibition on Egypt, the egyptians gods and Pharaohs displays more than 300 objects. The time period they cover is more than 3000 years, which gives you a possibility to see the development of Egypt over time. Among the items you’ll find coffins for the Pharaohs, sculptures and architecture, and of course… some mummies. To make the setting as convincing as possible, the mummies at the Glyptotek are displayed in the basement, and to reach them you have to make a descent into a tomb, recreated to remind you of the tombs in the pyramids.
See a performance at the Royal Danish Opera
During the season 2019-20 the Royal Danish Opera in Copenhagen has a full programme with lots and lots of wonderful productions. Opera, ballet and concerts all share the same stages. Some of the highlights from the opera programme are:
Carmen by Bizet. This production is in a contemporary and minimalistic setting, with dancing included.
- Il barbiere di Siviglia. The comic masterpiece by Rossini has been set by Martin Lyngbo as a silent film. This is the second year of this exact production, after being a major hit last year.
- La Traviata by Verdi, set up by David Radok.
- …and Sweeney Todd, if you prefer a musical to opera.
