3. One of Denmark’s best kept secrets is set to be unveiled in 2021 when the Cold War bunker REGAN Vest opens to the public as a museum. The construction, which is hidden away deep in Rold Skov Forest in North Jutland, comprises four black boxes and has been inspired by the decades-long mystery surrounding Denmark’s secret 1960’s nuclear-proof bunker. Nestled 60 metres underground, the building contains seven exhibition sections providing different perspectives on the Cold War.
4. The spiraling Marsh Tower designed by internationally renowned Bjarke Ingels Group (BIG) will open in the spring of 2021, making a visit to the UNESCO certified Wadden Sea National Park on the Danish west coast even more unique. The tower will be 25 meters tall and the DNA-spiral inspired shape ensures panoramic views over the surrounding marsh landscape.
5. Wake up to a view over the biggest elephant facility in Europe. Visitors to the new Elephant Camp at Knuthenborg Manor Estate, Scandinavia’s largest Safari Park, located on the southern island of Lolland, can experience the zoo at night and book a tent in a new glamping area. Opening summer 2021 those staying on the elephant savannah will have an evening experience with a guide and in the morning be able to watch from their tents as these gentle giants trundle past to take their bath in the elephant pool.
6. A further transformation is taking place in the capital as the site of the former Museum of Copenhagen reopens in 2021 as an acoustic concert and festival centre. The new Musikhuset København (House of Music Copenhagen) aims to become a centre for traditional and experimental music as well as a hub for musicians, composers, festival organisers, music entrepreneurs and other music lovers from Copenhagen and around the world.
