The area
Address
Neighborhood: Indre By (Inner City)
This is the heart of old town Copenhagen, with its blend of charming old buildings and bold new architecture, broad avenues and tiny streets as well as picturesque canals and a modern harbor. The inner city is home to the Royal Danish Theatre, which consists of three buildings, two of which are new and situated on the harbor front. The streets, squares and venues of the inner city and its surrounding neighborhoods, are alive all year round with everything from jazz festivals to outdoor ice skating rinks and parachuting at the lakes right in the center of the city. This compact area boasts beautiful old castles, tranquil parks, and bustling squares where you can always find a bench to stretch out your legs whenever you need a break.

This square is super charming indeed. Though it’s located inside the city center and around it there’s traffic, shopping streets, it’s really quiet and beautiful. There is a tree in the middle and some benches to rest on while contemplating the beauty of the buildings. It is definitely a must visit.

The location of Grabroedretorv is about as central as one can get in the old city of Copenhagen, but it is not immediately apparent to the visitor who is not familiar with the byways of the historic center. It can be found by various routes, however, and here is one of them: If walking eastward on Stroeget, the largest pedestrian street, turn left on Valkendorffsgade, the narrow side street that comes just before you reach Helligaandskirken (The Church of the Holy Spirit). Just as Valkendorffsgade takes a right turn behind the church, you will see the unmarked entry to a passage. Following the passage's twists and turns for 50-60 meters, you emerge in the beautiful square. The square is surrounded by 4-storey houses, whose stucco facades are painted in vivid colors--egg-yolk yellow, Wedgewood blue, brick red. In the middle of the cobblestoned square (pedestrians only after 11:00 a.m.) is a modern sculpture fountain. Along the southern side are restaurants serving various cuisines at various price levels--a few have lunch specials that are, by Copenhagen's expensive standards, reasonably priced--with outdoor tables on the square. In the summer months, there are occasional outdoor concerts, sponsored by the city. All in all, Grabroedretorv in the warmer months provides relaxed and civilised surroundings for lunch or a pause for mid-afternoon coffee or tea. It should be visited from May to June, as the colder months require that all of the outside activities be moved inside; the square is still beautiful, but its full charm is considerably dampened in late Fall and in Winter.

Once you walk into this square, you'll find many restaurants here and there are one or two famous eating joints here, can't name them as not sure if I'm allow. The day we were there, there was a jazz band there, not sure if it was because it's Jazz Festival here in Copenhagen from July 5 - 14, 2013.

This little square in the absolute centre of Copenhagen is one of cosiest, nicest places in the city.
Sitting under the old trees in centre of the square or on one of the many restaurants and cafés on a sunny summer day is fantastic, and a great way to take a break.
All around the square are restaurants and cafes ranging from very good (but somewhat pricy) bistro-style restaurants to the reasonably cheap steakhouse chain Jensens Bøfhus.
Although it might be a bit hard to find, hidden within the narrow streets, it is only two minutes walk from Strøget (the central shopping street) close to the city hall square.
Gråbrøder Torv is my favourite square in Copenhagen, an a most visit spot in the summer!!

This is a pleasant part of Copenhagen to include in a leisurely stroll through the center of the city. It is a bit removed from the central pedestrian street. There are some nice restaurants and cafes frequented by Danes who don't want to be in the middle of the tourist traffic.

Good to see all of Copenhagen’s history. Especially if you are a lover of history. Good to see other countries and their past.

I was back in Copenhagen a few weeks ago enjoying one evening out before our flight back to the US. As always Copenhagen is wonderful for walking and sightseeing. I was a little disappointed by Nyhavn, used to be delightful. Now it is so touristy and very crowded and expensive. Not worth the price and the attitude. Instead we walked away and looked up one of our old favorite places for dinner. And Grabrodretorv was perfect. Quite, idyllic, excellent wait staff and delicious dinner.

We stayed in a lovely very small first floor apartment overlooking the delightful historic torv for a week. Our friends and relations came to visit us, instead of us trying to do the rounds of visiting them, and we tried to visit all of the eateries with them (We almost succeeded, and didn't have one bad experience around them all).
Most of the popular tourist spots were within walking distance.
Last day before we came home I sat drinking coffee and thought " I don't want to go home." It's never happened on a holiday before.
I did come home, but brought some delightful memories.
