The city centre in Copenhagen is truly beautiful in terms of classical architecture, so make sure you look up while walking around. The main square with the Town Hall is a great place to start your walk down the pedestrian shopping street, Stroeget, which is full of life. But before doing that you can visit and explore the interior of... More

It was pretty scary. Fireworks flew all over the place and we got one at our feet. Place was really crowded, but the atmosphere was joyfull and the fireworks looked amazing!

Of course, that the main sight of the square is the City Hall. First we noticed the gilded statue of Absalon just above the front door. Next, we had a chance to explore the interior of Rådhus. And even looked at the wedding hall. Definitely recommend to visit.

My wife and I stayed across the street at the Scandic Hotel. This is a very busy area and square. City Hall and Hans Christian Andersen Statue is there also. Bike people control the streets. Watch out that they do not run you over. Take your pictures and move on.

This plaza is of interest but not of great interest. The buildings that line the plaza are commercial as well as the town hall.

Nice place to observe and an obligatory point while moving from Tivoli to Stroeget. In Sep.2016 there were some metro construction works.

This is the Town Hall Square and is the major square in Copenhagen. The City Hall occupies one side of it, but a large portion is under construction. Everything is going on here. Tours meet in this area, buses stop here, and it is a good place to people watch. Will be much nicer when the construction is done.

This is the center of downtown Copenhagen. Tour the city hall. Catch all of the buses from here. Sit on the lap of the huge Hans Christian Andersen bronze statue. Great architecture and people watching. Get a sausage from the Polsevogn for a cheap lunch. OK place to sit with a beer.

Staying in Indre By (Inner City)

Neighbourhood Profile
Indre By (Inner City)
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 neighborhoods, are alive all year round with everything from jazz festivals to outdoor ice skating rinks and parachuting at the lakes right in the center of the city. This compact area boasts beautiful old castles, tranquil parks, and bustling squares where you can always find a bench to stretch out your legs whenever you need a break.
