Welcome to Copenhagen!
Beside the Copenhagen Tango Festival and the regular milongas you can discover a lot of things in Copenhagen. It’s a really interesting city.
I will present you with a collection of stuff I normally show my guests.
Have a look at my list of museums in Copenhagen and northern Zealand (Humlebæk).
NATIONALMUSEET | Museum for all of Denmark
The National Museum is Denmark’s largest museum of cultural history. The museum’s main domicile is a classical 18th century mansion just a stone’s throw from “Strøget” at the center of Copenhagen.
The National Museum is the museum for all Denmark, where you can follow the history of the Danes right down to the present day. And you can get around the world from Greenland to South America.
