The National Gallery of Denmark is located a short walk out of the city center in the midst of an attractive park, Ostre Anlaeg, which was once part of Copenhagen's ramparts, The architecture is a fascinating melding of the original, red brick building designed by Dahlerup in 1896 and the modern wing, linked by the glass-roofed Sculpture Street, a vast corridor flanked on one side by immense windows giving way to a beautiful view of the surrounding park and lake. The museum's permanent collection includes Renaissance masterpieces, French art from the early 1900s, older Scandinavian works and an extensive 20th-century collection, spread over some three floors. The museum is user-friendly, with elevators, electronic guides, free buggies and a kids' section. Admission is free: changing exhibitions come with a separate charge.
