Crappy organization don't go! The staff was very unprofessional. Nothing was working. You had to que for 2-3 h just to enter. Didn't expect anything less from the Danes.

consists of three buildings, two of which are new and
situated on the harbor front. The streets, squares and
venues of the inner city and its surrounding
