Copenhagen, a city of wide avenues, stately palaces and impressive warehouses, is a feast for the eyes. The Danes are famous for their unfailing eye for style: as one would expect, this hip Scandinavian capital is dressed to perfection. And the creative Danish character has delivered art and culture of the highest calibre for decades.
Copenhagen is a world leader in the field of contemporary art. Design is one illustrious example of Danish art that has conquered the world. Renowned exhibitions follow each other in quick tempo and Copenhagen’s many museums will familiarise you with contemporary Danish art by both famous and yet-to-be discovered names. Works by artists such as Per Kirkeby, Olafur Eliasson and Richard Winther are among the finest examples. The exceptional museums should be part of any comprehensive visit to the Danish capital.
