Interesting Place to visit

Glad we made our last minute decision to go to this Design museum. It was well worth a visit & the clothing and china collection were fascinating.

Hold on to your seats! This museum will blow your socks off. It might make you wonder if there are any design standards the Danish did NOT influence. Then there's the cafe. OMG...More art, but this time on your plate! As I looked at the other diners' plates of food, I wanted one of each! If in Copenhagen, you owe... More

I had really wanted to visit this museum and looked forward to doing so. It was good, but not as much as I had hoped it would be, especially when the entrance fee is a hefty £10. I expected to be bowled over in this city of design but it failed to do this. The venue size and layout don't... More

The designmuseum was devided in two big area's: Japan and danish design. The part of Japan was for me not that interresting, but it was fun you saw the influents in the modern design. The second part of the museum is the part you expect of a danish designmuseum and is a good place to visit if you're into (danish)... More

Great design museum and a very nice cafe at the end of your visit with a lovely garden to sit out in if the weather is good.

Design is a huge part of the Danish identity worldwide and, as such, this is a must. There was a fantastic textile exhibit while we were and the Japanese arts exhibit was enlightening as it related to the development of the Danish aesthetic. The last few galleries are dedicated to the furniture we've come to love and associate with the... More

For anyone interested in design, or doing product design at school, this museum will be fascinating. The first part of the museum focused on Japanese design and then moved in to Danish design, including textiles, furniture, household appliances, ...

This was fairly small but interesting... not a showstopper. The store was not nearly as fabulous as I would have expected...

We spent a great couple of hours here. The museum is well laid out taking you first through the history, then fabric and textiles and on to furniture and the future of Danish Design. I am really surprised this museum doesn't rank higher. It is easy to get to being 5 minute walk from the royal Palace. It has a... More

I spent the entire time when we arrived in Copenhagen asking my husband if we could please go to this museum! This was the highlight of Scandinavian design for me. What a beautiful building and exhibits. I particularly liked all the chairs through the design ages. We had a fantastic lunch in the garden cafe with a delicious chicken soup.... More

Staying in Indre By (Inner City)

Neighbourhood Profile
Indre By (Inner City)
This is the heart of old town Copenhagen, with its blend of charming old buildings and bold new architecture, broad avenues and tiny streets as well as picturesque canals and a modern harbor. The inner city is home to the Royal Danish Theatre, which 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 neighborhoods, are alive all year round with everything from jazz festivals to outdoor ice skating rinks and parachuting at the lakes right in the center of the city. This compact area boasts beautiful old castles, tranquil parks, and bustling squares where you can always find a bench to stretch out your legs whenever you need a break.
