The latest pics are nice. They show the mix between old, mid-century new-ugly-brutalist and super nice super new!
What-s the general opinion about that SAS hotel looming over everything else? Is that the main business area? Is it deserted in the weekend?

Copenhagen has been build very mixed so except from a few modern office areas there isn't really anywhere really deserted and certainly not in Downtown..

As for the SAS Hotel ( that now is in Radisson Blu's hands ) well it's by 'Arne Jacobsen' so most Danes respect it, but loved it is not.. and while it may not have turned many to the NIMBY side by itself it is a good example of of how a grey box shouldn't be placed in their opinion..

Personally I'm not a fan - I think it's ugly and need a now glass cladding - but being this city it is I'll take everything above 10 floors we can get

I haven't covered Ørestaden in years because there are still stuff going up there so I'm not in a hurry..

With the completion of the Bella Sky and other projects here doing winter and early spring I expect to give the Ørestad some proper coverage in the early summer - so if interested stay tuned

Commissioned in 1606 to be a royal garden to provide fruit and vegetables for the court by King Christian IV it over the centuries have turned into the city's most visited park and home to the Royal Guard's local Copenhagen Base ( the main one is located north of the city )

[IMG]http://i32.************/2vuaf5l.jpg[/IMG]

Lovely pictures, Freki. Like specially the colours of the houses and the parks.

This is seriusly one of my favorite threads in SSC. Just a request... I think the maps would be much better and useful if you added the names of the streets, just for reference. This could easily help visitors choose their walk routes!

Hmm point taken.. but if any one are interested in walking routes by all means ask and I'll gladly aid as best as I can...



Time for more Old Town..

This time a small walk around the Parliament Building.. and a brief visit to the City Hall Square in Downtown
[IMG]http://i29.************/16h534k.jpg[/IMG]

The Parliament Building "Christiansborg" from 1927 ( many castles - many fires before that )
[IMG]http://i27.************/24ltp1x.jpg[/IMG]

The spot was home to the first castle constructed by Absalon in 1170 when he fortified the city ( turning it from fishing village to merchant city )
[IMG]http://i26.************/54hzr7.jpg[/IMG]

The earlier castles was home to the Royal family for many centuries.. and when they moved out the Parliament moved in..
[IMG]http://i26.************/2r2rbkn.jpg[/IMG]

The "small" canals of today used to be a big merchant port in the past..
[IMG]http://i30.************/35bbguc.jpg[/IMG]

Ships would dock here from around the world and it's goods sold on the squares along the canals.. ( hence the space )
[IMG]http://i31.************/2nv5ilj.jpg[/IMG]

[IMG]http://i32.************/20h7xit.jpg[/IMG]

[IMG]http://i26.************/2ni5da1.jpg[/IMG]

[IMG]http://i31.************/jl124k.jpg[/IMG]

[IMG]http://i26.************/nweyok.jpg[/IMG]

[IMG]http://i27.************/1pgdj8.jpg[/IMG]

The many city fires took it's toll on the area so most buildings are only from the 1700s
[IMG]http://i27.************/1pgdj8.jpg[/IMG]

Public transport
[IMG]http://i29.************/2ltlf9k.jpg[/IMG]

[IMG]http://i31.************/2qut5ja.jpg[/IMG]

[IMG]http://i28.************/2enrypw.jpg[/IMG]

[IMG]http://i27.************/2la7c4p.jpg[/IMG]

[IMG]http://i30.************/107jhoo.jpg[/IMG]

Christiansborg from the other side..
[IMG]http://i31.************/2w22dk7.jpg[/IMG]

The roof has just been redone and should turn green like the old one in a few years
[IMG]http://i31.************/n6p1j5.jpg[/IMG]

The National Museum ( free entry so give it a go if interested )
[IMG]http://i25.************/1zx9lhl.jpg[/IMG]

And finally at the City Hall Square..
[IMG]http://i31.************/qzrjbl.jpg[/IMG]

City Hall Tower on the right
[IMG]http://i27.************/2u5wg94.jpg[/IMG]

The square
[IMG]http://i29.************/35ch4lj.jpg[/IMG]

[IMG]http://i29.************/2zqcvtz.jpg[/IMG]

Palace Hotel..
[IMG]http://i32.************/2isz56t.jpg[/IMG]

[IMG]http://i27.************/5ys2om.jpg[/IMG]

And finally Tivoli Gardens
[IMG]http://i28.************/wkqr9g.jpg[/IMG]
