Copenhagen on a warm October day: futuristic outskirts and a charming city center

I was in Copenhagen last Saturday with my sister. It was very warm and sunny for being October. We visited Fields, Frederiksstaden (the district around the harbor and Amalienborg), Nyhavn and the city center. I got the feeling that Copenhagen is under a modernization: Some mayor square are reconstructed and a lot of new buildings are popping up both in Orestad, in the harbour and in the city center, and the metro is expanding.


Citytunneln Triangeln, Malmö. The train going to Copenhagen is underneath this building, a 10 min walk from my home.

ÖRESTAD:


Fields, Scandinavia’s largest mall (until Emporia in Malmö will beat it):
















Outside Ferring, looks a bit like the 9/11 memorial.




Bella Sky Hotel, the brandnew (2011) leaning hotel towers, largest in Scandinavia.




DR Byen, the TV corporation complex and concert hall designed by Jean Nouvel.

METRO:

The following photos will be from the old city center.

KONGENS NYTORV:

Kongens Nytorv (Kings New square), Copenhagen’s 2nd largest square, was under reconstruction during our visit, and thus a bit messy. Rådhuspladsen is also under reconstruction.




















A market at Kongens Nytorv.


Inside the large department store Magasin du Nord.


NYHAVN:


Nyhavn was crowded with people drinking beer this warm October day.





More will follow...

Thanks guys! It is good that Copenhagen is only over the sea from Malmö where I live.

STROGET:

As most people know, Stroget is the main pedestrian street of Copenhagen.


“Long shadows fall”.




The exclusive department store Illum, now more like a shopping galleria.




Amagertorv.


Typical Copenhagen streetlight (one of those were moved to Central Park in New York).






Street musician at Amagertorv, playing all instruments himself.

RÅDHUSPLADSEN:

Rådhuspladsen (City Hall Square) is Copenhagen’s largest square and is the heart of Denmark where all distances are measured. It is currently under reconstruction.



The City Hall, Palace Hotel. The ugly black box bus terminal on the opposite side has been torn down, another part of the square’s renewal.


This brand new office building, still under construction, came as a big surprise to me, since there was an ugly modernist building (the one with a shopping arcade inside) last time I visited, but it has been torn down to make way for this.


Vesterbro side of the new building.





If you know more about this project, please tell me!






Tivoli, the world’s oldest amusement park!

Great photo tour, Nightsky! Denmark seems like such a cozy, inviting country. It really is no wonder why Danes are among the happiest people in the world.

I'm always amazed by how much English language signage there is in Scandinavia. It's everywhere and on everything!
