Continuing with a tour of our rental’s neighborhood in Copenhagen (København, Danemark) … if you didn’t earlier, see the interiors here and here.

The apartment overlooks Strandgade – the same street where Noma is located – the best restaurant in the world in 2010, 2011, 2012 and 2014. Of course, IT made a reservation months ago but we were placed on the waiting list … and in the end no luck.

Our host noted that the apartment once had a very famous neighbor – Vilhelm Hammershøi (1864-1916).

strandgade-18

His painting was sold in 2012 at Sotheby’s for a record setting 1.7 million pounds – it was not that large compared to some Monets but it was the highest record for any Danish work of art at that time. He was a painter known for his poetic, low-key portraits and interiors (literally next door).

Beautifully-kept garden just under our kitchen window. Note that this rustic town house and garden is in the middle of the city.

Apart from Noma, the street Strandgade is also the home of the Danish Architecture Center (below) and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

We hear that Noma will close at the end of 2016 and emerge in this same neighborhood but closer to Christinania with its dining room situated in the middle of a greenhouse where the vegetables and herbs are grown.

The neighborhood is rather quiet near the harbor but a lot livelier near the canal.

This is Christianshavn in Copenhagen (and not Amsterdam).

We ate locally at these eateries several times.
