  • And to think people like Bartholin (discoverer of the lymphatic system), Romer (discoverer of the speed of light-see details of it on Rundestaal), Oersted (discoverer of electromagnetism), Kierkegaard (philosopher), Gram (bacteriologist), Sorensen (concept of pH) and Niels Bohr (the atoms) studied there and that this University has 10 Nobel prizes, I don't think I even have to say anything else. Just going there to see it!

  • We didn't go in just looked for the outside but it was lovely I'm glad we saw it as the building itself is so nice  more »
  • The main building of the University is located near Copenhagen Cathedral. The University was founded in the second half of the 15th century and is the oldest in Denmark. In addition, to date, considered the best in Scandinavia. For tourists is closed, except for a single day of the year-at night, when you can freely stroll the many facilities, as well as accompanied by students become familiar with the campus. Inside blows the spirit of antiquity, many of the elements of decoration for centuries.

  • A very nice building with a rich history
  • Main entrance was closed but the side entrance lead to the inner court yard with very traditional Danish housing comprising the campus. Got benches and trees as shade for resting your legs and an afternoon read. A street down from the east exit leads to some fine cafes and book stores selling both Danish and English books with discount prices (mostly 1960s sci-if and Dickens crime stories)
  • y did no discover copenhagium
  • I was invited by my Danish friend to the graduation of her niece. It was nice and there were students from all over the world, diversity:-)
  • Best of the Nordic!

Where to stay in Copenhagen

Most of the hotels in Copenhagen are located in the central Vesterbro or hip Indre By areas, though there are many more adventurous (and somewhat more affordable) places to stay during your vacation. As in the rest of Denmark, accommodations in Copenhagen are quite expensive. If you're traveling on a tight budget, consider camping along the Mølleå River or staying in one of the city's many backpacker hostels. If you prefer an inexpensive hotel, explore options in the Helgolandsgade and Colbjørnsensgade neighborhoods. For a taste of Denmark's art scene, head to the up-and-coming Kongens Nytorv and Nyhavn areas. Travelers who like to stay outside of the main tourist areas should set their sights on one of the city's suburbs, like the northern section where you can stay at a beachfront hotel or on a houseboat.
