What do you think of the new station in Copenhagen that opened this week?
It’s only open until the end of the month, but already the new metro station at Madison Square Park in Copenhagen is drawing a lot of attention from tourists. And, of course, its distinctive setting.
The station covers 400,000 square feet (that’s a little less than six times the size of the White House), houses 1,310 parking spaces and is the site of the City’s Most Next Phase For the Next 50 Years Conference March 2.
Here’s a video produced by Denmark’s TV3 detailing the change to the current station:
The image above was shot from the top of a tourist bus by Bjørn Thiumann, who is visiting from Denmark.
To mark the opening, one artist painted a day on a huge clock.

That’s not a painting. It’s the train left in place on the old station. #Copenhagenupdate pic.twitter.com/jrF1mZUXjW — TeamCopenhagen (@TeamCopenhagen) February 26, 2015

Here’s the city welcoming the new station. It’s not hard to imagine the inspired work that would go into the station at 4th and Spree, with a few changes.
