A swan in stone


At Copenhagen Central Station (Hovedbanegården) there is a lot of original details, many of them hidden from view by more modern appliances. This swan above the Copenhagen coat of arms is a good example of this. Most travelers fail to see and appreciate these beautiful details in the morning rush.

The building is from 1911 and connected to most of the S-train lines, the intercity lines, the regional lines and the international lines, making this the biggest train hub in Denmark. There is no connection to the Metro-line here though, but that'll happen in 2017, when the Cityline is completed.
