Located just opposite the home of the Royal Danish family – Amalienborg Castle Copenhagen Opera House stands on the shore of the harbour. The building though during the night is looking like located on the island. The lights softly reflecting on the water are giving it an additional charm.

Sunset skyline | Copenhagen, Denmark

The view in the photo above is from Christiansborg Palace, the seat of Danish Parliament. Since 2014, the central tower of Christiansborg Palace has been opened to the public. Entrance is free and since the sun was setting, we didn’t hesitate to climb up. The view was indeed stunning, as we had initially thought from the beginning. I just adore capturing bird’s eye perspective views of cities!⠀⠀⠀⠀

Nyhavn | Copenhagen, Denmark

Originally the branch canal Nyhavn was trenched in 1673 to connect the marketplace Kongens Nytorv to the busy port of Copenhagen in order to boost the trade. Even though Nyhavn never went on to be a big port, due to its limited size and capacity it still led to a lot of businessmen settling down along the promenade. The typical colorful gabled houses were mostly built in the 18th and 19th century and are one of the most important sights in the Danish capital today.

Gefion Fountain | Copenhagen, Denmark

The wishing well is officially the biggest monument in Copenhagen and tells a story about the country’s mythology with its sculptures. The Fountain shows a scene, in which the Aesir Damsel Gefion cuts a trench in between the Island of Zealand and Sweden with her plow, which is led by her three sons who had been turned into bulls. She cuts Zealand off the mainland forever and created the biggest Island in Denmark.
