A riding school, where there were formerly airships, giant whales’ skeletons in a parking lot, a bunker hidden under a school, an elevator that never stops, an infinity system of tunnels under a hospital, amazing secret museums, unknown architectural gems, hidden gardens …

Whether you are living in Copenhagen or just visiting, the city offers a surprising wealth of sights away from the popular tourist tracks and all the clichés. This book is a must for those who think to know Copenhagen and for those who just wanted to explore the city from one second perspective.
