For anyone with a love of design, a visit to the Danish capital will always be a mix of work and pleasure.

The accessibility and general quality of design is hard not to notice, in everything from small retail spaces, to cafes and the excellent museums.

The Arne Jacobsen petrol station (first 2 images above) is a fine example of how something normally utilitarian can become a highlight of a trip. Opened in 1936, it still functions as a filling station, with added coffee and ice cream sales.
