  • We stopped by Kings Square after walking Stroget to Nyhaven. The Square itself is between the 2 and has plenty going on. A lot of people generally going about their day but plenty of opportunity to pe...  more »
  • Can’t wait till they are done with the renovations - has lasted most of My adult life. Mess up the view to the Royal Theater  more »
  • It's a nice square close to the main shopping area of Copenhagen, easy to find. Parts of it are under construction as they are building a new Metro line underground, but the remainder still houses a c...  more »

  • Very nice area and view. Be aware about restaurants, its tourist prices and not always the best quality food, but very nice atmosphere and cosy.
  • Not much to see here now because there is a lot of work going on. Hopefully it'll be better after they are done.
  • Ongoing Metro works ruin the place for the moment. You'll still go around here when exploring Copenhagen, so it's a must-see even if there's not much to see *exactly* in the square. There's an important, upscale and highly decorated hotel over there, the national theater, and Nyhavn close by.
  • Absolutely the shitiest place I’ve EVEER been too, no customer service what so ever. Mc Donald’s should stop all business because they’re absolute shite, good luck in the future, Burger King will do 1000000000% better then mc d will ever do
  • Must-see for any tourist. A huge mall nearby. Nyhavn - the symbol of Copenhagen (featuring free WC). Great Christmas fair. Don't miss it)
