We saw a production of La Boheme in this outstanding building. This is an amazing place, typically Scandi with wood, glass and beautiful lights. Right on the waters edge, an evening here is a special event even before the opera starts! Our seats in the first row of the Circle were excellent and cost £100 but they were worth every... More

beautiful new opera building. It did cost a lot of money, but worth to visit. Attend a concert and book a ticket in advance trough internet. Only 20 minutes walk from the city

I wasn't inside so can not say much about it. Around the Opera there is NOTHING. I love taking pictures of the building from the oposite side of the water.

Not sure if it was operational during winter time, but we came across the building from the boat tour. Definitely a head turner and great photo op from the water. We did not make it inside

Fantastic modern, sleek opera house. Right on the water. Acoustics are fantastic. Bit of a long walk from downtown across the pedestrian bridge, but pleasant. Definitely worth a visit. No in-seat subtitles. Super-titles limited to Danish.

We went to the Opera to see The Pet Shop Boys: The Super Tour concert. From the outside this building has kind of a massive masculine structure. The building has affectionately been called the BIG toaster. The location only 25 meter from the harbour front, in the busy Cophagen harbour is nothing less than perfect. The huge foyer area is...

Staying in Christianshavn

Neighbourhood Profile
Just across one of the many bridges from Indre By, you’ll find Christianshavn. An eclectic area with old brick lanes, houses dating back to the 16th century, and canals which are home to many boats and ships, some of which has been turned into restaurants or even serve as fully furnished homes. The best known attraction in Chistianshavn is Christiania, a “free town” of residents who squat on a former military area. However just a stone’s throw away from Christiania, you’ll find some of the most fashionable waterfront apartment buildings in Copenhagen as well as the splendid Royal Opera House.
