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.

Yet another square as you stroll the Stroeget. The Gammeltrov like the Amagertorv features a statute/fountain. I think this fountain Caritas is more colorful, detailed and beautiful. A good meeting, resting and photo shoot spot.

Active neighborhood and commercial shops, restaurants and landmarks throughout the area. Area of the city along the Stroget. Lot of eateries and and shopping around the square. It is a great place to just stroll and enjoying the surroundings. Worth a visit!
