    Returning home, on the bus, if you open at 10:00 11 am. Many people waiting outside. 2 hours going at one time were watching in a big hurry was. Why so let day to go to the airport. The next time I look slow. It is good to digress a little from the heart of the city, while broad, to watch making. But because it didn't have enough time to go to the shop. I think prices are high, but once again, the take you want to watch.

    NB: in August the rooms reserved for the European collections were closed for work. Damage however the Museum is worth visiting for the collection of French painting but especially to discover the Danish and Nordic painters. For those who like a number of contemporary works

    It was a surprise to find some key works of the French modern painting. Other rooms were closed but I have a pleasant memory of that Museum, spacious and with little public. That allows you to see clearly and quiet the works displayed in the. You use.

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.
