Unseen Copenhagen

There is a whole side of Copenhagen, accessible only from rooftops and private apartments, just itching to be explored. Once in a while I catch a glimpse of something familiar from a different angle, and it makes me fall in love with my city all over again. I had a meeting the other day at the top floor of an old building in the historical centre, and the first thing I did was rush to the window and take in the view:

A super rare view

Utter coolness. This only fuels my desire to (find a way to) explore the hidden angles more. And it makes me think of the CphCph guys, climbing roofs and tunnels, like undercover agents mapping the unseen Copenhagen. Crazy beautiful stuff:

Ah, I am so inspired!

  1. Har du været oppe i caféen på Post & Tele Museet? Der får du også en ret sjov udsigt over byens tage.

    1. Ja, men det er hundrede år siden, og det var kun for at drikke kaffe. Nu ser jeg jo alt med friske øjne, haha, må straks derop igen og kæle for udsigten. Tak for tip. :-)

  2. De er muggent på Cafe Posttelegrafen eller hvad det nu hedder deroppe. De vogter deres altan. Man kan kun kom derude hvis man spiser der. Har forsøgt flere gange. Men fik disse billeder...

    1. Men så er det jo godt at man altid kan klemme en sandwich ned. Sund appetit to the rescue endnu engang. Fine skud.

    1. Haha, samme sag. Nå men jeg fandt ham ovre på jeres site, det må være den du så hemmeligt linker til? København har så mange lag, det er helt vildt, jeg bliver aldrig træt af at kigge. (Må for alvor kigge nærmere på det P&T museum)

  5. Ja jeg prøvede igen, men noget går galt - vi postede det den 21 juli sidste år.

  6. Oh wow Sandra, the statue is wonderful and the video is amazing. Makes one inspired and ready to go (of course I have fear of heights, I won't be climbing anything)...
    Good post :)

    1. Ah, Carole, I am also squeamish about heights. But only if there is no railing, so terraces and the likes should be fine. Maybe the fear will even diminish over time. :-)
