This is lovely square just across the road from the end of the Nyhavn canal, it is surrounded by other interesting sites including the Bank of Denmark, and the national theatre, there are also plenty of restaurants and shops around the area.

We’ve been to Copenhagen twice in the last three years and stayed at a hotel right off the square. Both times, the square has been under construction. We see potential for it to be a lovely area but it hasn’t been our experience. Maybe someday.

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
