  • You can find this in one of several turf when you scroll up and down the strøget. Not by the main attractions but dumps you into it so there is nothing to be embarrassed about.

  • Currently a massive construction site .. but you can still see the beautiful buildings all around the square. Still worth a minute on your way to Nyhaven.  more »
  • This is the square in front of the new haven. Even though I feel the greatness freezes, this building would get used because everybody around is just like building, making the landscape

  • It's a great area but currently (2017) there a lot of construction work so most of it is not accessible.
  • Building of the new "metro" makes this place quite uninteresting. Looks like a big construction site. Will probably look good again when construction has been finished.
  • Amazing place. You can take nice photos
  • It will be a beautiful place when they finish construction time...
  • Amazing place to visit, but metro construction site hinders the experience a bit.

Where to stay in Copenhagen

Most of the hotels in Copenhagen are located in the central Vesterbro or hip Indre By areas, though there are many more adventurous (and somewhat more affordable) places to stay during your vacation. As in the rest of Denmark, accommodations in Copenhagen are quite expensive. If you're traveling on a tight budget, consider camping along the Mølleå River or staying in one of the city's many backpacker hostels. If you prefer an inexpensive hotel, explore options in the Helgolandsgade and Colbjørnsensgade neighborhoods. For a taste of Denmark's art scene, head to the up-and-coming Kongens Nytorv and Nyhavn areas. Travelers who like to stay outside of the main tourist areas should set their sights on one of the city's suburbs, like the northern section where you can stay at a beachfront hotel or on a houseboat.
