Copenhagen’s ode to happiness: #Happywall

Happy Wall Copenhagen Kongens Nytorv

The Happy Wall is located at King’s New Square in Copenhagen.

The Happy Wall is located at the end of the shopping street, at the square called Kongens Nytorv (King’s New Square). The wall consists of nearly 2 000 wooden boards that you can flip over. The boards are black on one side and coloured on the other side. By flipping the boards anyone can leave their message of happiness to the world. Of course we had to try this out!

The Happy Wall was conceived and executed by Danish musician Thomas Dambo. Copenhagen’s Happy Wall is built from the remnants of the Tuborg Cinema stage at Roskilde Festival 2013. Since then, Dambo has created another Happy Wall in Las Vegas. He thinks every city should have their own Happy Wall. And why not, this would be a lovely idea even here in Rauma!

There are thousands of pictures on Instagram with the hashtag #Happywall. So when visiting Copenhagen, remember to spread the happiness of the Happy Wall by creating your own message!
