University of Copenhagen

Yesterday was my last day teaching in Copenhagen for this summer. It’s always a sad day when I finish up in the summer in Denmark. The students at Copenhagen Business School are excellent (ranking in the top five in Europe and top 15 worldwide).

That said, the people of Denmark are what make my experience here so special. I have met so many wonderful people, this year in particular, at festivals and on other occasions. A new friend, who I met at the Roskilde Festival, gave me a private tour of the University of Copenhagen (on the campus near the Church of Our Lady in Central Copenhagen) yesterday. Previously, you could wander the campus as a regular tourist. However, due to thefts they have now locked most of the passages.

My place this year, near Valby Station, is great. However, I really miss being near Copenhagen’s lakes. I’ve only seen them a few times this year. I saw them nearly every day during the prior three summers I spent in Copenhagen.

Today’s photo comes from a “trip” I took to central Copenhagen last week to eat ramen at Slurp Ramen Joint.

Grundtvigs Kirke

I didn’t have class today so I went for a bike ride. First stop was Grundtvig’s Church. The sky was overcast when I left my place in Valby, but by the time I arrive blue sky was beginning to appear. This made my exterior photos much better.

I would love to hear some music in this place. Unfortunately, the night-time concerts seem to be on break until August, and the day-time music is on Wednesday when I’m teaching.

Should you ever be biking to the church, I recommend approaching from the west, through the cemetery. It’s much more spectacular than from the south, which is how I arrived.

Building between Krøyers Plads and Noma

I’m not sure if this building is technically part of Krøyers Plads or not, but in any event this is a really cool neighborhood–and not just because you can jump in the water on a hot day. Much of this area of Copenhagen (Christianshavn actually) has been built in the past few years, including the bridge from Nyhavn.
