Visit to the Danish-Jewish Museum
The top architect Daniel Libeskind’s characteristic architecture will – in an almost labyrinthine manner – lead you into the enthralling universe of the Danish Jewish culture. The Museum is named ’Mitzvah’ (“good deed” in Hebrew) honouring the rescue of most of the Danish Jews during WW2.
