I know they will be moving soon, which is a shame because the building is a dream. Hopefully the new location will give the center more space to grow and inspire more architectural fans.

Nice bookstore and cafe, but there is only a single exhibition so you will go through it in less than an hour. Still, if you like architecture it's worth a visit.

On the first floor is a small cafe with four tables in a glass box overlooking the city. Food is good, view is awesome if you can get in the glass box.

Had a lovely evening here, with a fantastic exhibition on Danish Urban Design. The staff were incredibly pleasant, with a lovely (although pricey) giftstore. Well worth the price of admission, for 40kr student rate it's a bargain!

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
