Architecture in Copenhagen


Just popping over to post some pictures whilst on holiday in Copenhagen. The mention of Copenhagen conjures up an image of history steep in design.

This was certainly evident in the architecture as we strolled along the street.


Love the old style facades of houses in varied colours, lining the tranquil waters of the canals.


Then, there is the modern architecture of impressive proportions, such as the Blue Planet aquarium, Europe’s now largest aquarium, which we visited yesterday.

It has been designed by Danish studio 3XN. It’s shape and contours styled like the whirl of water. Clad in aluminium like the scales of fish. Well worth a visit if travelling with family.


Finally, we spotted this modern floating hotel by the canal called CPH Living. The rooms are clad on one side in top to bottom glass, giving guests a perfect view across the waters and distant city.

Now, off to explore Copenhagen further. I will be intermittently posting as I explore this beautiful city. Wishing you all a wonderful week ahead.

  5. Hi Geraldine,
    Congratulations to the Blog Tour!!
    I’m sure you are having a wonderful time in Copenhagen, it’s such an amazing place. I used to live just across the bridge in Sweden so I used to spend a lot of time in Copenhagen when I was younger.
    There is a remarkable Danish floral artist/designer called Tage Andersen that I would recommend – very unusual and not your average!!
