Explore Copenhagen by Boat

See another side of the Danish Capital from the water

See another side of the Danish capital from the water

It’s midsummer here in Scandinavia. The light lingers late into the evening, fragrant with blossoming hyldeblomst, climbing roses and salt air. Sunrise peeks in our windows a bit too early with the chirping sing-song of birds reminding us how long these Danish summer days are for exploring. When the sun is shining and the weather warm, the whole Copenhagen harbor will be heaving with people enjoying the clean water along the canals. While you can (and should) take a dip from the shore or at one of the beautiful area beaches, this year, may I suggest you see a different side of the city and captain a customizable canal cruise. Even if you don’t have your own boat, there are plenty of ways to experience this pretty city from the water. Continue reading “Explore Copenhagen by Boat”

Denmark Reopens Art Museums | What’s it Like Inside

What Danish Museums are Doing Post Lockdown
MODERN ART MEETS BRAVE NEW WORLD

A few weeks ago, another wave of reopenings was revealed here in Denmark.  This one gave a specific shout out to Denmark’s myriad cultural institutions. Effective from the very next day – May 22nd – museums, theaters, art galleries, cinemas, zoos/aquariums, and botanical gardens could once again welcome visitors if they complied with the latest recommendations from the Danish health authority.

So what does that mean for you and me? What has changed and what do you need to know if you want to go. This week I stepped inside two iconic halls of modern art on this side of Denmark. Come along to the Louisiana Museum of Modern Art in Humlebæk and Arken Museum of Modern Art in Ishøj, both just outside the capital Copenhagen.

World Class Art by the Sea at the Louisiana Museum of Modern Art

Jump on the train from Copenhagen for a brilliant day out in Denmark
A HISTORIC HOUSE IN HUMLEBÆK TURNED MODERN ART MUSEUM

The best art museum in Copenhagen is not actually in Copenhagen. But it’s pretty close. And the Louisiana Museum of Modern Art that sits by the sea north of the capital is definitely worth making the extra effort to explore. Pop on a regional train from Copenhagen’s Central Station bound for Helsingør, but make sure you don’t miss your stop. Humlebæk is where to find this world-class museum, a quick 10-minute walk from the station. A perfect day out in Denmark.
