Day 3 Copenhagen - Danish Design MuseumAugust 3, 2018 in the United Kingdom ⋅ 🌧 20 °C
It was only 28 degrees so we decided to walk the short distance to the Danish Design Museum. Mark had lied and it was closer to 2 kilometres. But it was a nice day.
Observed the Danish art of riding a bicycle holding two large bunches of flowers while smoking. True talent.
Great place originally built as the first hospital in 1774.
Now has a great collection of Danish design icons, the everyday item and the completely useless.
Has a Chair Hall with a fantastic collection of iconic chairs from the world’s best designers and probably now worth a zillion dollars. Tried our first smorgasbord sandwich for lunch and although unusual was very tasty. Thinking the sign on the table was something important we tried Google Translate to discover it said “Don’t move the Bench”. Bit if an anticlimax really.
Terrific place with far to much to see.
Back to the hotel for dinner down the road at an Asian restaurant and a kiwi waitress originally from Argentina who spoke no Danish. You couldn’t make it up.Read more
