The area
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.

Large square
Sep 2019
This huge expanse is a good place to view the Town Hall and other buildings and towers in the vicinity. I found it quite an ordeal to cross the roads surrounding the square due to all the traffic and few safe crossing points.

The Town Hall Square is worth a visit
Jun 2020
After several years of Metro construction, City Hall Square now appears open and welcoming. The subway's skylights and newly planted trees give the space an exciting look!

Nice place
Jun 2019 • Friends
Very nice square. It's large enough and comfortable. When we visited city, the square was being reconstructed. As I could understand a metro station must be built here. Lovely place and beautiful city Copenhagen.

Plenty of shops and attractions
Nov 2019
Nice large main square in Copenhagen, right in front of the City Hall. Radhuspladsen Metro is right there, which makes it easy to get to anywhere in Copenhagen. Lots of shops and eateries around. Tivoli is only a short stroll down the road.

Great place for polser
Dec 2019
There are 2 polsevogner on the Radhusplads both from the Steffen Hallberg polsefabrik. The one nearer to the Strojet is better and good representive for these great products. Try 2 rode, 1 brod og ketchup og sinnep, cant miss with that. Radhuspladsen is a beutyful place in the heart of Copenhagen in a walking distance from the main shopping street and Tivoli. Don miss it.

Huge square
Oct 2019
The square in front of the town hall. Very large and surrounded by a mix of old and new buildings, with interesting architecture, many of them having on the ground floor restaurants and shops. Near the town hall is a beautiful fountain, Dragon Fountain. Through Stroget, a pedestrian street, full of expensive shops, is connected by another important market in Copenhagen, Kongens Nytorv. It is the place where the Danes gathers for demonstrations or to watch the queen’s speeches (kept from the central balcony of the town hall).

Majestic square

It was wonderful to stand in the middle of the square to admire the beautiful Town Hall and join the folks rushing between the Central Train Station and Strøget.

Main square in Copenhagen
Jul 2019
There are many sights on this centrally located square: the City Hall, the Dragon Fountain, the Lur Blowers statue, and the statue of Hans Christian Andersen.

The famous pedestrian street Strøget starts from here and it goes to Kongens Nytorv, the other large square of the city center.

There are still construction works going on for the metro station.
