Copenhagen Library Tour: Christianshavn Bibliotek

View of library from across the street

Next stop in the Copenhagen Library Tour — the public library branch in Christianshavn! Christianshavn is another one of Copenhagen’s buroughs. In my opinion, Christianshavn is the prettiest part of the city thanks to all of its canals and interesting buildings (including the landmark Church of Our Saviour), the Opera House and Christiania.

This library is located across the street from the Christianshavn Metro/bus station (pictured above). It’s on the second floor of the building, so you have to climb some stairs upon entering. It actually took me a while to find the main entrance at first, as it’s located around the corner on the side of the building. Many work spaces are located along a narrow table facing the window, so you have a nice view of the street, canal, supermarket, metro and bus stations below as you work. Another interesting feature were the low white, open bookshelves. There were some nice orange and green walls as well. In fact, green and orange seemed to be the color-scheme for this library. Overall, a nice, quiet, pleasant place to spend an afternoon! Below are some pictures, and as always, there are more on Flickr!
