The conference I was attending in Copenhagen started Wednesday in the evening, 
so I still had most of the day to myself. I started by taking the train north 
to Humlebæk to visit one of my favourite spots, the Louisiana Museum of Modern 
Art, a place where one can enjoy man-made and natural beauty on the shores of 
Øresund, the strait separating Denmark and Sweden:

After lunch, I went to see some more art, this time in the Kunsthal 
Charlottenborg, a place in the centre known for their rather avant-garde 
exhibitions. Much of it was not my cup of tea, but this work by a young Korean 
artist was rather striking:

In the evening, I made my way to Langelinie, home of the Langelinie Pavillon 
where the opening reception was being held. The walk from the commuter train 
station to Langelinie takes on through the Citadel (Kastellet), old 
fortifications that never really played any role in wars but now function as a 
wonderful recreation area:

Langelinie is also home to the Little Mermaid, one of the world’s most 
overrated tourist attractions. I usually give it a miss, but since it is only 
around 150 meters from the Langelinie Pavillon, I passed by it and photographed 
several conference participants busy making photos:

After the reception I went back to my hotel, passing the beautiful square in 
front of the City Hall, Rådhuspladsen. At this time of year, sunset in 
Copenhagen is around 10 p.m., and it was far from being dark:

Then I walked to my hotel, had a beer and went to bed. Thursday morning the 
real work was starting and I needed to be fresh.
