Danish Treasury of the Written Word

Libraries are wonderful places, and none live up to that ideal more than the Royal Library of Denmark (Det Kongelige Bibliokek), which also serves as the library for the University of Copenhagen. Also called the "Black Diamond" for the architecture of its modern addition, this is the largest library of all the Nordic nations. With over 6.7 books (plus millions of prints, pamphlets, photographs and electronic collections), it houses medieval manuscripts, printed books dating back to 1648 and, as the depositary library for the nation, every book currently being published in Denmark. Enjoy the exhibitions of books, stroll the park-like grounds or have a meal at their excellent restaurant.
