Dronning Louises Bro is a bridge across The Lakes in central Copenhagen, Denmark. It joins Frederiksborggade in Indre By with Nørrebrogade in Nørrebro and separates Sortedam Lake to the northeast from Peblinge Lake to the south west.The bridge was designed by Vilhelm Dahlerup, and constructed between 1885 and 1887. The bridge is named after Queen Louise, King Christian IX's wife. It was listed in 1997.HistoryThe first bridgesA bridge ) located close to the site of the current bridge is mentioned in 1562. It provided a link between Copenhagen's North Gate and the Nørrebro Road In 1618-20, Christian IV built a combined embankment and a wooden bridge as part of his new Frederiksborg Road. The crossing was improved in the 1720s. The embankments in each end was reinforced with large stones and the central bridge section was replaced by a drawbridge.The new bridgesIn the second half of the 19th century the bridge was unable to cope with the booming traffic that was a result of the redevelopment of the area outside Copenhagen's fortifications as well as the growing population in general. The crossing was notorious or being windy even on quiet days and the architect Emil Blichfeldt therefore proposed a bridge lined with shop with inspiration from the Medieval bridges of Florence and Venice. Blichfeld pointed out that the extension of Frederiksborggade had developed into a thriving shopping street with no vacant shops and that the solution would therefore make sense. His proposal was featured in the magazine Ude og Hjemme in 1883 where it was described as "both practical and artistically well-designed. The proposal was discussed on a meeting in the City Council on 18 April 1884 where it was supported by 13 votes against 12 but the magistrate instead chose a simpler and more traditional proposal by Vilhelm Dahlerup. Construction began in 1885 and the bridge opened on 7 September 1887. The bridge became known as the Peblinge Bridge (Peblingebroen).

  • Very nice bridge overlooking the Great Lakes! A bit eccentric but bordered by very nice houses and beautiful buildings. It is really huge and very nice to walk around. Many birds of style duck/Swan.

  • Transition from Nørrebro with two lakes on the sides. In the weekends with Sun youth groups gather to relax and enjoy the nice weather. Cute and romantic view

  • Perpetual noise, a mixture of romænere which constantly begging bottles, højspillende cargo bikes, full and rowdy young people, people who throw their waste without the slightest concern about who clears up, and regularly drum/bongo-playing individuals who we believe others should be forced to listen to their solo concert anti-time, beggars on green arla boxes m their new iphone .... All of this can be experienced almost daily .... Connects with Danish coziness none of this ... Unfortunately

  • Experience the local culture - a place where young people hang out in the summer, chatting or listening to music out loud. Brings a cozy feeling to a busy city.
  • Really cozy place, especially when thr sun is up, it's warm outside and you're looking for some breeze and a great view
  • More than a mere bridge, this is one of the hangout places for young people in Copenhagen. On good days during the summer you might even witness a spontaneous dance-gathering.
  • A true slice of Danish life! Come here with some beers and just watch life go by... You'll never stop being amazed by what people can carry on a bike
  • A bridge where Copenhagen's younger folk hang out in the sun on summer evenings and out of the wind in smaller numbers in the winter. Music, drinking and spontaneous crowds. The bridge itself is nice to look at, and the view of the reservoir front city is pretty good. It also serves as an actual bridge.

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.
