The Danish Pavilion is an opportunity to try out Danish city life. You can visit the original and famous Little Mermaid by foot or by city bike. You can let your children run around on
the playground. You can enjoy a picnic and dip your toes in the water in the Harbour Pool.
The Danish Pavilion is wrapped around the Harbour Pool. The building itself is a monolithic steel structure designed as a double spiral with pedestrian and cycling lanes taking you from the ground and through two curves up to a level of 12 metres and down again.
In this way, you can experience the Danish exhibition both inside and outside at two speeds - as a calm stroll - with time to absorb the surroundings and as a bicycle trip, where the city and city life drift past.
Bicycle and bench
The pavilion roof is covered in a light blue artificial material, known from Danish cycle paths. Inside, the floor also features the blue cycle path where the bikes pass through the building.
Danish artist Jeppe Hein has designed a social bench going through the inside and outside space of the Danish pavilion. Besides being an artistic and social approach, the white steel bench also functions as a barrier between the pedestrians and the cyclists.
