The majestic Black Diamond Library sits on the waterfront of Copenhagen’s main canal. Opened in 1999 as an extension of The Royal Library, it was designed by Danish architects Schmidt Hammer Lassen and the exterior is clad in black granite from Zimbabwe. The building got its nickname from the way it seems to sparkle when the sun reflects off the water below. The Black Diamond is not only impressive from the outside. Inside, contemporary meets traditional as the wide, open atrium leads into the old Royal Library. Wander from new to old, admiring the views from the floor-to-ceiling windows on your way. Inside the Black Diamond are two exhibition spaces and two permanent museums - the National Museum of Cartoon Art and the National Museum of Photography. The 600-seat auditorium regularly hosts classical and jazz concerts, so keep an eye on their website for the latest events. So, the Black Diamond is a true cultural hub and much more than just a library. But, if you’re simply looking for a place to grab a coffee and get some work or studying done, you won’t be disappointed. Choose from seats in the canal-facing cafe, the group work section and the silent Old Reading Room and let yourself be inspired by the magnificent architecture and calm atmosphere.
