Out and About - Copenhagen City

Copenhagen City

Around Slotsholmen
This small island is the historical and geographical heart of Copenhagen.







The main entrance to Christianborgs Slot







Folketing, home to the Danish Parliament






An equestrian statue of Christian IX overlooking the Ridebane (Royal Riding Ground)


Another entrance to the Ridebane








Overlooking the Frederiksholms Kanal








At the Tøjhusmuseet

"Errm... Muna, I think I found where they hide the weapon of mass destruction!"




Børsen
The flamboyant red-brick building with the distinctive gabled green copper roof and spire formed out of four entwined dragons' tail.






Thorvaldsens Museum
A Neoclassical style buiding with its striking ochre facade and beautiful frieze.







A necessary pit-stop of cafe au lait and mouth-watering desserts...
