A guide from a rainbow panorama to a secret bunker

Copenhagen in architectural focus

For those of you who love discovering new architectural wonders, then we’ve got great news! Copenhagen has been named UNESCO’s World Capital of Architecture for 2023. This will be your chance to experience what’s behind those doors that normally remain closed, as well as other unique events held throughout the year. Add this to your 2023 bucket list.

Take a rainbow walk

Fancy a walk in a rainbow? Then explore Aarhus Art Museum (ARoS), the largest art museum in Northern Europe. ARoS is built upon the idea of Dante’s ‘Divine Comedy’ with a ‘9 spaces’ concept at the ground level of the museum and a spectacular Rainbow panorama overlooking the city at the top level. This museum is breathtaking on all levels and should be at the top of your must-do list in 2023.

Go on an architectural adventure with Jørn Utzon

The Sydney Opera House celebrates its 50th anniversary in 2023 – but what does that have to do with Denmark, you may ask? The mastermind behind this iconic building is none other than the Danish architect Jørn Utzon. And, of course, The Sydney Opera House isn’t the only architectural masterpiece that he’s created. 2023 is the perfect year to explore the Music House in Esbjerg, the Utzon Center in Aalborg and the Bagsværd Church in Copenhagen.

Explore the New Underground Cold War Museum

Step back in time with the new underground Cold War museum, REGAN Vest. This shelter was originally built in the 1960s to protect the Queen and the Government during a nuclear war. This bunker was a well-kept state secret for many years but is now opening to the public. This is a piece of Danish history that you do not want to miss in 2023!
