this place is a must see. It's a gift to the city by MAERSK, the biggest Danish shipping line and it's simply stunning. If you have the opportunity, take a look at the opera hall itself: an architectural masterpiece

The building is massive with interesting forms so it's Interesting to approach from all sides. Our visit was in Winter so it was nice to walk inside to escape the winds. unfortunately the café was only open to patrons ... I think that was crazy.

This is a fantastic facility. The building itself is an event. Facing Copenhagen Harbor, it is set off by itself. Looking across the harbor, you can see Frederik's Church and the Queen's winter residence, Amalienborg.

Saw La Boheme here, the building was wonderful- very beautiful. Accoustics excelent. Note that if you get tickets the seating numbering is weird, with even seats together- they are not in ordinary numerical order as far as we could see. The opera itself was good, but it took a bit of time for the vocals to "warm up" but fine... More

This opera house is a beautiful building that looks just as amazing on the inside. It is definitely worth a visit while you are in Copenhagen. If you plan your day, it is right next to the royal palace so if you only wish to see the outside of it you can do it at the same time.

Huge grey building with not much architectural excitement. Nor very colourful. Having said that, it has a nice gigantic roof that makes it look elegant. This place is heavily subsidized by the Danish tax payers. But when you see the prices of the tickets you may understand why it is making a huge loss every year as not many people... More

You sholúld not visit Copenhagen without spending a couple of hours here. There are possibilities for both pop/rock concerts and classic musik and of course operas. The inside is fantastic and you can book a guided tour that will take you through the building

Staying in Christianshavn

Neighbourhood Profile
Christianshavn
Just across one of the many bridges from Indre By, you’ll find Christianshavn. An eclectic area with old brick lanes, houses dating back to the 16th century, and canals which are home to many boats and ships, some of which has been turned into restaurants or even serve as fully furnished homes. The best known attraction in Chistianshavn is Christiania, a “free town” of residents who squat on a former military area. However just a stone’s throw away from Christiania, you’ll find some of the most fashionable waterfront apartment buildings in Copenhagen as well as the splendid Royal Opera House.
