EXPLORED_ Glyptoteket in Copenhagen

EXPLORED_ Glyptoteket - Hannelore Veelaert - aupaysdesmerveillesblog

While I’m enjoying sunnier places this week, I wanted to share few fragments of last year’s trip to Denmark.  I visited family in the vicinity of Copenhagen and spent a few days wandering the streets of the Danish capital on my own.  One of my favorite discoveries was the Glyptoteket, a museum that is dedicated to sculptures but is a work of art on its own. Wandering through its marble clad halls and exploring the luscious winter garden was an absolute dream and a must if you’re ever in Copenhagen.

DENMARK / day six and seven

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

A few weeks ago, I travelled through Denmark with many fellow architecture students.  These are my favourite photos of that trip (all of them are taken by me).  Move your mouse on the photos to find out more about what’s shown in the picture.

We started our first day in Aarhus with a walk to the highest point of Denmark (Ejer Bavnehøj), which isn’t very high as you can see in the pictures.  In the afternoon, we visited the Old Town, or Den Gamle By in Danish, which is the National Open Air Museum of Urban History and Culture  (voor de Belgen: het Deense Bokrijk!), and spent the rest of our time sipping coffee and playing Time’s Up, which led to quite a few strange looks among the locals.  In the evening , we returned to our chalets and had a great party: everyone decorated their chalet according to a theme, and made sure they had matching drinks, food and outfits.  Can you guess our theme?  (Tip: we had moustaches and cigars (oh well cigar cookies))

The last day of our trip, we were extremely tired thanks to the amazing party of the night before.  We followed the group though, visiting the Concert Hall and the ARos museum, but the rest of the day was spent on the extremely comfrotable couches of a café where we might have taken a nap or two…

On our last day in Copenhagen, we visited the Louisiana Museum of Modern Art, a museum with paintings by Picasso and Roy Lichtenstein, and a gorgeous view over the sea.

The next day, we left for Aarhus and spent the entire day on the bus and ferry.  In the evening we arrived at our hostel, which existed of several little chalets between the woods, next to a lake.  The chalets were so cosy, I really loved staying there!

On our last day in Copenhagen, we took an architectural walk with Bo Christiansen (architect for Schaledenmark).  In the evening, me and my friends explored the Nørrebro neighbourhood, and visited a few lovely vintage shops. After our short shoppingtrip and a quick diner, we returned to Soupanatural, for yet another Sofa Sessions.  This time we weren’t such fans of the band that was playing, but we had a great time anyway.  I wish I could show you more of  the cosy atmosphere at this lovely bar, but I try to stay away from exposing my friends on the internet as much as possible.  But if you’re ever in Copenhagen, you should definitely stop by Soupanatural, it’s at Skt.  Peders Stræde 31, in a cellar.

Day two started with some free time in the morning, which we used to visit the Dansk Arkitektur Center.  Unfortunately this was closed (they were preparing a new exposition), so we just spent our time in the beautiful bookshop.  After a quick stop at one of the many Lego shops, everyone meeted at the Danish Design Center, where we spent the entire afternoon.  The evening ended in Soupanatural,  a bar with organic soups and beer.  Every Sunday, this bar has an event called ‘Sofa Sessions’, where small bands will play an acoustic set.  This night we were very lucky:  A key is a key gave an amazing performance and all 57 of us became big fans!

The first day of our Denmark trip was spent in Copenhagen.  We took a big walk around the old center of the city, while passing some cool new buildings as well, and ended the day with a delicious dinner at BioMio.
