Putting it mildly, the whole area is under construction , and the traffic ( bicycle ) makes s very unsafe area; as far as in concerned. I would recommend most any other area in Copenhagen to venture out before trying to dodge the flow of...More

You are warned and I should have read the Tripadviser's input of 2014!!!! Nice looking belle-époque kiosk in the centre of this actual ugly building site of the Kings Theatre square, but we were in for a coffee. For 4 coffees and 4 biscuits I...More

This is a noisy construction site at the moment due to the new metro extension - will be done by 2019. There is no point visiting to see the square but you will inevitably come across this area when you visit attractions such as Nyhavn...More

Summer time is the best time to visit this area. There's a flea market in the square. There's a big (quite expensive) shopping center nearby

Just cruising around Copenhagen checking the sights. Went through square. Nice architecture and great places to get some food. Right next to the canals and other sights.

In construction the whole time of the visit, but they have made it very interesting with art elements and a spinning wheel. Good place to relax and meet people!

This construction site bears no resemblance to the park that you will want to visit when work is complete. Its awkward to walk around and the "antiques" are odds and ends of garage sale rejects. Take the canal boat tour twice instead.

This is the heart of old town Copenhagen, with its
blend of charming old buildings and bold new
architecture, broad avenues and tiny streets as well
as picturesque canals and a modern harbor. The inner
city is home to the Royal Danish Theatre, which
consists of three buildings, two of which are new and
situated on the harbor front. The streets, squares and
venues of the inner city and its surrounding
