Operaen III

And here's the third part of my series of the new Opera-house in Copenhagen. The first two can be found here: Operaen and Welcome to Operaen.
This picture is more meant as an overview to show the location of the building as well as its surroundings.

Operaen has been built between June 2001 and October 2004 and opened in January 2005. The building is located on the island of Holmen, north of Christianshavn and opposite to the Royal Palace Amalienborg and Marmorkirken (Marble Church). The architect behind this project is Henning Larsen.
Operaen is a donation to the Danish state by A.P. M鷲ler and Chastine McKinney-M鷲ler Foundation. M鷲ler was the co-founder of the company Maersk.

As I told you Operaen is built on the island of Holmen, on the part which is called Dok鷫n (Dock Island) and the old dock and pumping station is still visible near the Opera.
It is only possible to come to the small island by one narrow bridge, but the public transport in Copenhagen has also a boat sailing to Holmen.
At the other side of the water the Royal Palace Amalienborg is located, but isn't visible here. The houses you can see in the background are located at Tolbodgade and could be also seen in the reflections in my last picture.

I hope you like this picture to.
To be continued.
