This is a free museum, located at walking distance from Norreport Metro Station. David's Sammling contains rare pieces of Muslim art and provides an in-depth glance to the propagation and history of the rise and expansion of the Muslim world.

We brought our teenagers. Good English audio guides. Large Islamic collection. Nice activity at night since it gets dark so early in November.

If someone had told me I’d enjoy looking at a gallery full of Islamic art, I probably wouldn’t have believed them. But there were some stunning pieces. Staff were really friendly and helpful and on top of all that the place is free to enter.

In each European capital, collectors offer their legacy to the city. Here you have many collections. That's worth going out of your way to see this house.

This is the heart of old town Copenhagen, with its
blend of charming old buildings and bold new
architecture, broad avenues and tiny streets as well
as picturesque canals and a modern harbor. The inner
city is home to the Royal Danish Theatre, which
consists of three buildings, two of which are new and
situated on the harbor front. The streets, squares and
venues of the inner city and its surrounding
