With two floors filled with approximately 50,000 photographs and posters of all kinds, Posterland is the perfect place for those who want to have a picture of Copenhagen decorating their wall back home. Film and music enthusiasts should spend their time on the first floor packed with posters; Those who prefer vintage, classic, or modern-art paintings should stick to the ground floor. The shop is a bit pricey, but prices depend on the kind and size of the poster.

Our Trips are suitable for both solo travelers, couples and friends who want to explore the world together.
Culture Trips are deeply immersive 5 to 16 days itineraries, that combine authentic local experiences, exciting activities and 4-5* accommodation to look forward to at the end of each day. Our Rail Trips are our most planet-friendly itineraries that invite you to take the scenic route, relax whilst getting under the skin of a destination. Our Private Trips are fully tailored itineraries, curated by our Travel Experts specifically for you, your friends or your family.
