It's a nice square close to the main shopping area of Copenhagen, easy to find. Parts of it are under construction as they are building a new Metro line underground, but the remainder still houses a cute little coffee stand with outdoor seating, the yearly...More

A free trip probably wouldn’t take me back to Copenhagen. Absolutely nothing at all to the city. Very boring, drab place. Little character to the place and the square specifically. There’s limited resources to enjoy a full day let alone a full weekend. To make...More

During our stay in Copenhagen, we seemed to encounter massive construction sites wherever we went. Much of this construction is as a consequence of work on Copenhagen's underground railway system. One such example was the King's Square. No doubt, this is normally a delightful city...More

Putting it mildly, the whole area is under construction , and the traffic ( bicycle ) makes s very unsafe area; as far as in concerned. I would recommend most any other area in Copenhagen to venture out before trying to dodge the flow of...More

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
