Further afield – Copenhagen and Malmo

Copenhagen is the cycling capital of the world and home to some great museums and galleries, but few spectacular sights. One of those cities which is probably nicer to live in than to visit as a tourist, Brisbane is another.

Yes, I know Malmo is in Sweden, not Denmark, but given that it’s only 35 minutes train ride away with no border control, with a similar look and feel, the change of country isn’t hugely noticeable.

Ny Carlsberg Glyptotek
A phenomenal collection of antiquities in central Copenhagen, complete with an impressive palm filled central atrium.

Statens Museum for Kunst
A stunning art gallery, with a great collection.

Wanderings
Copenhagen is a great place for walking around, enjoying the green spaces and interesting architecture.

Also worth mentioning The David Collection, home to the best collection of Islamic arts I’ve seen. It’s not as impressively housed as Kuala Lumpur’s but far better presented and documented (though photography wasn’t allowed when I visited).

Malmo
Few sights, but makes for a pleasant place to wander around and explore for a few hours.
