This is Ny Haven (New Harbor) though it's actually quite old. It's the touristy section of Copenhagen and the place where we boarded a tour boat to see the rest of the city.
One of the palaces
I think this is the new theater

One of the most upscale neighborhoods in Copenhagen
A bicycle parking lot near a subway stop. Bikes are super popular in Denmark. Almost no one wears a helmet, everyone wears normal clothes (to include skirts) and there are separate bike lanes on all the busy streets.
An older part of the city
I love visiting libraries in other cities. Here's the Århus library in Denmark.
The teen/YA section
The picture book section
The middle grade/ elementary school fiction section
A play area in a loft above the kids' section
The multimedia area in the kids' section
After I took this picture two kids came and played a video game on this giant screen.
There was a separate room off of the middle grade fiction section filled with fantasy and sci-fi books for kids and teens.
This is the doorway and other wall of the fantasy room.
Harry Potter in Danish
After Stockholm we traveled to Århus — the second largest city in Denmark. It's on the east coast of the Jutland peninsula and is a great city to visit because it's small enough to get to know it quickly, yet large enough to have a number of cultural sites.
We had a fabulous studio apartment/hotel room in Århus. I spent a lot of time sitting on the balcony, looking at this view, reading and sipping wine or cider.
The canal street our hotel was on had lots of cafes.
This is the church and pedestrian shopping area behind the canal street.
This fountain next to the church was popular with kids, parents, and grandparents.
The ARoS museum has all kinds of cool multimedia exhibits. This giant boy is one of the museums most famous pieces (and one of the easier pieces to photograph).
