  • Nyhavn Canal lined with colourful attractions facing this square there. Seems Metro related work, and part was enclosed in a steel fence. In the great square is surrounded by tourist attractions after construction. It would be nice to visit here after touring the Nyhavn.

  • A lot of nice people. Good places to get something to eat, and I'm sure that you can find something in your taste in some of the countless restaurants that you can find here. There are a lot of options in this area of Copenhagen.:-)
  • It's a 5 star place that's been temporarily rated 4 stars because of never ending Metro works. I've actually never liked the place since I've been living in Copenhagen but I've seen some pictures :). Once the metro works are finished and the place will be restored to it's former glory, it should be one of the most beautiful areas in Copenhagen. A very "french" atmosphere with Magasin du Nord, Hotel D'Angleterre and the French embassy in the same square. .
  • Maybe the nicest square in Copenhagen, but the view is currently obstructed by the Metro construction (until 2019).
  • Currently under construction! Can't wait to see the finished product!
  • Nice restaurants with outdoor serving and a very good place to relax and enjoying the sun. Due to the construction of the Copenhagen Metro a great part of the square will be a building site until 2018
