  • Dominated by advertising sign a note home of smartphones has become a reference point that marks the city skyline. There you go for strength in front of the rectory walk along the Nyhavn and then enters: a pleasant surprise that you don't expect, 15 minutes well spent!

  • Small but interesting museum on the top two floors of a beautifully historic building. There is a room of amber "inclusions" containing magnified plants and insect trapped in amber. There is also science about amber formation and a room of treasures made of the same. Fun for a short visit while checking out Nyhavn. If you want to bring some home, the shop below has jewelry in all price ranges.
  • Small but impressive collection of amber, including the world's largest piece of amber. Aside from regular amber pieces they also have a beautiful collection of objects shaped from amber. Especially the amber with captured insects is fascinating!
  • Lady asked me: where are you from? My answer was: from Latvia. And the reason to visit, was to see the big piece of amber upstairs. But here are a lot of other interesting things to see. The coolest jewellery with amber I have ever seen!
  • A 2-room museum about amber. The world biggest and the biggest amber found in Denmark can be found inside. Below the museum is a shop for amber.
  • Bad people bad service.
