  • There were renovations undergoing due to metro expansion. It has several hotels and is always full of people coming and going. It has street food carts, markets, cafes and restaurants. Nice and fancy place.
  • We visited here while on a tour of the local area. Big beautiful square - interesting architecture in the buildings surrounding it. They were doing construction work on the big church, I'm thinking it will be beautiful when complete.
  • A very pleasant square. It's a very touristic place too. It is just in front of the Nyhavn. The place is very beautiful full of colourful houses. It's a must see point at the hear of Copenhagen.
  • Magasin du nord lights up the place at night, which is very pretty, but it's currently looks so horribly ugly with the metro work taking over half the place, not to mention all the noise from the builders.
  • Looking forward to the place resumes it former glory. It is and has been a large construction site for the new metro for many years now.
