Concierge.com's insider take:
Laid out like a stately country manor when it was first completed in 1918 in a Copenhagen suburb, this modern-art museum recently added Zaha Hadid's spatial, snail-shaped extensiona fluid addition that morphs into a grassy knoll at the rear, and merges with the surrounding, lush parkland. But the extension isn't just a study in aesthetics. Functionally adding galleries for special exhibitions, the new space also allows more breathing room for the museum's premiere collection of Danish 19th- and 20th-century realist and naturalist paintings, as well as its star line-up of French artists. Degas, Gauguin, Manet, and Renoir are all represented, though it's Corot's Windmill, which sits under a sky swagged with heavy clouds, looking almost Nordic, that seems most at home.
