Libraries

Library
“This is actually the city’s main public library, but it is so much more than that. It’s a place for families to hang out and play, great for working at studying and there is always many events taking place. From here you can take a nice walk at the harbor area. Remember to visit ‘Havnepladsen’ where there is a playful water fountain where it is nice to chill and hang out for families and students. Hackkampmannsplads 2.”

“DOKK 1 is located nbext to the harbour by the sea side. enter the stairs to the first floor (outside steps) and you'll find a gret playing garden for your children, and a good view point for you at the same time. DOKK1 is a pubvlic library but there are outdoor activities interated on the first floor terrasse that goes al around the building, which you may check out. Very Danish way of thinking play ground for the children. next by on ythe ground floor is a fountaine which you can run barefooted in between during summer time. ”
