I am very interested in remote places, languages and anthropology and as such, I was very interested in visiting the museum about North Atlantic Countries and their cultures.
Last December I went to Copenhagen, but the museum was unfortunately closed during Xmas week. This time I went back to Copenhagen and one of my priorities
was to visit Nordatlantisk Brygge....
With its definte focus on art and music from Greenland, Iceland and the Faroe Islands, this gallery brings visitors powerful impressions of the whole North Atlantic region.
The old building - previously a warehouse in the busy harbour - provides a perfect backdrop for the art exhibitions, with solid wooden beams and very special light, regardless of the seasons.
I love the place - not only because we have an office here, but because everything about it is so exquisitely Nordic. You get to see an icebear, Nordic fashion, photos from remote places few people go to and even some coffee and cake. The meeting facilities are great - with exception of internet which is really bad.
I was just touring the other bank" of the harbour canal when i stumbled over this place - right next to restaurant Noma by the way.
Historical building with lots of links to the Nordic links between the Denmark and the Faroe Islands and Greenland.
Exhibitions. A café with "Nordic handcrafted goods. Roynd the corner is a Greenland shop combination...
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 town” of residents who squat on a former military area. However just a stone’s throw away from Christiania, you’ll find some of the most fashionable waterfront apartment buildings in Copenhagen as well as the splendid Royal Opera House.
