Frederiksberg Alle, Copenhagen
(4.6/5 based on 25 reviews on the web)
Frederiksberg Allë is a tree-lined avenue which runs through the southernmost part of the Frederiksberg district of Copenhagen, Denmark, connecting Vesterbrogade to Frederiksberg Runddel in front of the main entrance to Frederiksberg Gardens. Originally constructed in 1704 as the king's private road leading to his new summer residence, Frederiksberg Palace, it developed into the backbone of an entertainment district in the mid 18th century, and has continued to be associated with theatres until the present day. The avenue is lined with a double row of linden trees and bisects Sankt Thomas Plads, a small round plaza, shortly after its departure from Vesterbrogade.HistoryThe king's private roadThe crown took over the area at the far end of Frederiksberg Allé after Ny Hollænderby, a settlement of Dutch farmers which had been located at the site, had burned down in 1697, and a new summer residence for Frederick IV was built on a local hilltop between 1699 and 1703. Completed the following year, with inspiration from France, Frederiksberg Allé was established to provide the king a private road, a Route de Roi, between the main road out of Copenhagen's Western City Gate and his new palace with its extensive adjoining gardens. The new avenue was known as the king's new road as opposed to the king's old road Gammel Kongevej.

  • One of the really beautiful and clean the streets of Copenhagen, where a chance encounter beggars or vagabonds is very small. The area is smooth and very expensive in terms of housing, all maintained in excellent condition.
