This square is the oldest square in Copenhagen. You find here "House of Amber" and some small restaurants. There is also the dominating feature The Caritas Well (from 1608) that is the oldest well in Copangen as well. Next is the Nytorv Square.

When strolling the Strøget, be sure to stop to admire The Caritas Well (Danish: Caritasbrønden), also known as the Caritas Fountain. It is the oldest fountain in Copenhagen built in 1608 by Christian IV. On Queen Margrethe II's birthday (April 16th), gold covered copper balls, symbolizing golden apples, are placed in the fountain, to balance on the streams.

During our second stay in Copenhagen we had been enjoying a bit of retail therapy along Strøget and were in dire need of a place to take a rest and enjoy a snack. Gammeltorv, a large city square turned out to be the ideal spot to do these things. There were several restaurants and cafes with outside tables located around the square as well as a number of park benches in the square itself. On this particular day there were a couple of market stalls set up with vendors selling flowers as well as fruit and vegetables. There was also a hot dog caravan situated on one side of the square. We were able to find a vacant park bench and we sat there for about twenty minutes enjoying our snacks. Whilst doing so, we admired the impressive fountain in the centre of the square and simply relaxed while watching people come and go. This was certainly an ideal spot to take a break and relax for a while, in the middle of a busy city.

The pedestrian street Strøget is passing this square and the adjoining Nytorv. The square is lined with some very prominent buildings from the 1800s. In the middle of the square, you find the beautiful renaissance fountain Caritas.

Gammeltorv is the first square you will come up when walking the Strøget from the direction of city hall. It is the oldest square in Copenhagen, dating from the 12th century. Most of the the surrounding buildings were built after the great fire of 1795. In the center is the lovely Caritas Well (or Caritas Fountain). Gammeltorv sits right next to Nytorv, together forming one large square. To me, it is not as interesting as Amagertorv, but it is definitely worth visiting for the well and the sense of Copenhagen’s history.
