I decided to repost some of my photps from around Danish cities, since most people here probably never visits the Scandinavian & Baltic section (where I spend most of my time here;) ). Some of the threads have also been deleted in the mainwhile. I'll show you 4 Danish cities/towns I have photographed. I've keep descriptions from old threads, and tried to adjust them, but maybe a few are outdated. The last part about "Herning" doesn't have any descriptions, so feel free to ask if you have any questions:)

Let's get started:


Copenhagen

Population: Approx: 500.000 in city, 1.800.000 in metro.



Starting in "Nyhavn", like always packed with people when the sun is shining:


"Vor Frelsers Kirke":


The new Opera House (soon to be completed at the time of the photo). This is the same architect as the Ferring Building:


"Control Tower" from Knippelsbro:


"Christians Kirke":


"Vor Frelsers Kirke" again. It turned out that this one is open to the public (I've never known that), but unfortunately we came 20 minutes after they closed :bash: Will surely have to go there next time I'm in Copenhagen:


Radisson Scandinavia, 2nd tallest in the city:


The Black Diamond, with the spires of Christiansborg and Nicolejs Kirke in the back:


"Europa Huset", currently empty, soon to be conveted into a youth hostel (used to be offices):


Nykredit Building, with the Europa Huset reflecting in the facade:


New modern office building close to the Radisson Scandinavia:


The Ferring building:


And finally futher back, a new highrise under construction close to the Ferring Building (getting a bit dark):



Some photos from an earlier trip:

Hilton Hotel close to the airport:


The Ferring building in Ørestaden:




Converted silo in the harbour:


The City Hall square:






The main train station:




Århus

Population: Approx: 292.000



Looking north towards the harbour from Marselisborg Marina:


Marselisborg Marina (urfortunately it's a little bit early to get any sailing boat photos):


Looking north towards the harbour (yack:rant: ) on the way back to the city:


Buildings on Strandvejen:


Close-up view of the soon to be completed KPMG Huset (next to Bruun's Galleri shoping center)


The top of "Vor Frue" church:


The chuch itself with the city hall tower in the background:


The newly renovated "Clemensborg" on Clemens Torv. The old building was torn down except the facade whcih was used i the new building. Today it's a small shopping center:


View towars the Magasin store:


King Christian X in front of the cathedral:


Top of the cathedral (96 m.):


The cathedral tower:


The backside of the cathedral:


View towards Store Torv:


Love this next one, the top of Århus Theater:) :


Sign in front of a restaurent/small brwery:


Back close to the harbour, here's the buildings that face the northern part of it:


One of the huge Maersk container ships (Århus is the largest container port in Denmark):


Looking towards the city from a pier:


More harbourfront buildings:


Moving back into the city towards the university, looking back down "Nørrebrogade":


And finally Skt. Johannes Kirke behind the Municipality Hospital, I've never seen this building before, heh:


(Originally part two of the århus tour):

First a "bonus" photo taking while I was waiting for the bus. This is not a part of the "tour". It's more to the west than you can see on the map. It's another shopping center with about 70 shops (located a few hundred meters from where I used to live):


Let's get going with the tour, first we have Prismet as most of you have probably seen before:


Walking towards Mølleparken along Århus Å:


Mølleparken:


Lion in front of the Department of Justice:


Top of the same building:


And the building itself:


The new artmuseum ARoS, it's opened on April 7th 2004:


A statue in the pedestrian street:


McDonalds:


More Clemensborg photos, first we have 3 exteriour photos:






Moving inside, appearently there's still some construction going on in there:




Moving outside again, here's a few of the café's next to "Åen"


Old houses at Klostergade:


The old firestation at Ny Munkegade (still in use):


A closer view of the tower:


Looking back down Ny/Gammel Munkegade:


Next 3 photos shows typical buildings of the northern part of the innner city:






Finally reacing the Botanical Garden and Den Gamle By (The old Town), a outdoor historical museum:




Old Windmill in the park surrounding the museum:


A funny Garbage frog:)




Kolding

Population: Approx: 63.000



And now the photos, first we have Koldinghus:









And some views from the tower:





Some highrises in the lower right corner. The tallest of these had a fire the other day. One died:













Inside Koldinghus:





Chuch in central Kolding, and then some random places:















Herning (Where I live now)

Population: Approx: 59.000


































































































































































That's it for now, hope it wasn't too long. There are some Denmark related links in my signature should you be interested. :)

Good and interesting thread. I expected to see more pics of Copenhagen and the Indre By, though! Some pics of Malmö may be appropriate too. :)

Really lovely city! Among the modern buildings the Ferring Building is the one I liked more and the Radisson Scandinavia is hideous! :puke:

Thanks for all the pics and captions. It's a much more thorough view of the country than the usual close skyline pics we see of most places.

I was surprised by how rural much of the country seemed. Very clean and pristine looking with an interesting mix of the old and the modern.

Mikael! Great shots!!!!!! Wich lenses are you using with your 300D???
Most of these shots are with my Canon 28-135 IS and my Sigma 18-50, and a few with my Sigma 70-300 APO. The 18-50 isn't exactly the sharpest lens on earth, but it'll have to do until can afford something better. Congratz with your new camera yourself. :)
