Designed by Boje Lundegaard and Lene Tranberg, Skuespilhuset, Denmark's Royal Playhouse, is a landmark of modern Danish architecture and was completed in 2008. Partially cantilevered over the harbor, the building has a top floor entirely surrounded by glass walls as well as a bank of harbor-faciing windows on the lower floors surrounding the foyer, which runs the length of the building. The three theaters contained in the playhouse are enclosed in a "flytower" that appears to float over the glass portion of the building, and they host play performances ranging from Shakespeare's Hamlet to works by modern Danish playwrights.
Arrive at the playhouse by water: take the ferry to the Nyhavn stop just steps away.
