      The Liberty Column

      0.13 km

      The Liberty Column in Copenhagen is a 20 meter tall Obelisque, erected in memory of the peasant reforms, 20 June 1788. These reforms led to the abolition of the adscription.

      The four symbolic female figures on top of the column symbolise Bravery, Civic Virtue, Fidelity and The Industrious Cultivation of Land.

      Connection to the construction of Copenhagen Central Station, The Liberty Column was moved a few meters from its original place.

      In 1850-51, the monument was renovated for the first time. In 1999, it was unveiled after a huge renovation where the Obelisque and the four statues were replaced by exact copies.

      Tivoli Gardens

      0.21 km

      Tivoli is a playground for young and old and a spot so full of wonder that it inspired Hans Christian Andersen and Walt Disney. Whether you come for the gardens, music or rides, you’ll have a blast.  

      Tivoli Gardens was founded in 1843 and has become a national treasure and an international attraction. Fairytale writer Hans Christian Andersen visited many times, as did Walt Disney who even found the inspiration for his own Disney World here. When the garden was founded it was placed outside the city’s moats, but today it’s located right next to the Central station and within walking distance of City hall.

      Part of Tivoli Gardens' secret is that there is something for everyone. The scenery is beautiful with exotic architecture, historic buildings, and lush gardens. At night, thousands of coloured lights create a fairytale atmosphere that is completely unique. It has quirks and charm, and details for you to discover – you might catch a glimpse of the guinea fowls or peacocks running freely through the gardens. 

      Magical, nostalgic and spooky rides

      The rides are all designed to match Tivoli's architecture and gardens. Some rides are wonderfully nostalgic, while others will match the expectations of the keenest thrill seekers. Tivoli’s oldest and most popular ride, the wooden Rollercoaster from 1914, is one of only seven rollercoasters worldwide which have a brakeman on board every train. In contrast, you’ll also find Vertigo, which will turn you upside down at 100 km/h. It was voted Europe’s Best Ride in 2014.

      The newest ride of all is Villa Vendetta, Denmark's largest permanent haunted house complete with actors, where guests embark on a journey through 12 different rooms spread over 800 spooky square meters.

      TRAVEL TIP: With a Copenhagen Card in your hand you get free admission to Tivoli and over 80 attractions as well as free public transportation in the whole capital region. 

      Dining in Tivoli Gardens

      When it comes to food, Tivoli is equally diverse. Lots of people will bring picnics to the garden, but you can also choose from Tivoli's broad selection of restaurants. You'll find everything from traditional Danish cuisine to French bistro to gourmet burgers. Tivoli has a seafood bistro, Figaro as well as the world-renowned burger chain, Gasoline Grill, and one of the city's very best vegetarian restaurants, Gemyse.

      If you’re up for a more relaxed, food-stand kind of food, Tivoli has got that as well. On the corner of Tivoli, towards the Central Station, you’ll find Tivoli Food Hall. The architects behind the building also created the stunning glass pyramid of the Louvre in Paris. Inside you’ll find a variety of different cuisines, from healthy Islandic dishes at Glò to delicious, hot flatbread at North-African Wakha, and everything in between.  

      You could also try the classy Nimb and Nimb Hotel, which are situated in Tivoli Gardens. They have a variety of different restaurants – for example in the restaurant Fru Nimb, you can get traditional Danish smørrebrød (open-faced sandwiches). There is also the outstanding patisserie Cakenhagen to enjoy for its coffee, cakes and champagne.

The district is situated within walking distance of Copenhagen city centre, right behind the Central Station. It is one of the most fashionable places in Copenhagen - not just to live - but to shop, eat, drink and have a great night out.

The quarter even boasts its own food street, frenchy Værnedamsvej – a gourmet’s paradise with specialist cheese, wine, fish and chocolate shops, as well as cafes and grocers - on the border between Frederiksberg and Vesterbro.

      Dragon Fountain

      0.44 km

      The Dragon Fountain at Copenhagen City Hall Square was made from a model in 1889 and was originally intended for Amagertorv but lost to the The Stork Fountain.

      In 1904 a bronze basin was erected with decoration inspired by ancient Greek ornamentation in Copenhagen. On the edge of the basin were placed three dragons, all spouting water and rather larger than sketched in the 1889 project.

      In 1908 the fountain was surrounded by a low, outer basin with a granite edge after a design by Skovgaard and Bindesbøll, but not until 1923 was the Dragon Fountain completely finished with a bull battling with a dragon.

      Large and small dragons

      So as not to squeeze the group at the centre, the three dragons on the edge of the basin were made rather smaller and thus in keeping with the original project. The large dragons are today on the balustrade in front of the Town Hall.

      At the same time, the outer basin’s granite edge was decorated with six bronze baskets of fruit placed on every other one of the twelve stone consoles. This new version of the spring was inaugurated on 4 June 1923.

      Moved and seperated

      Vestre Boulevard was widened and altered in 1954 and at the same time had its name changed to HC Andersens Boulevard.

      The entire fountain was moved 25 metres into the square, and the outer granite basin with the bronze baskets was removed. This was set up in Brønshøj Torv in 1973, but removed again in 2001.

      City Hall Square

      0.45 km

      One of Copenhagen’s main squares, City Hall Square or Rådhuspladsen is in front of the City Hall. It marks the start of the shopping street Strøget and is a key location for events and demonstrations.

      It's an important public gathering space for the city – people gather here for demonstrations, to pay tribute to returning sports heroes, for big concerts, and for outdoor exhibitions and events including Copenhagen Pride. It's also the site of a hot dog stand, and occasionally plays host to flea markets.

      The square is on the site of the city's former hay market and has been redesigned many times over the years, the most recent being in 1995-6.

      Among the sculptures in the square are The Dragon Fountain, showing a fight between a bull and a dragon, and a statue of Hans Christian Andersen. If you look to the Richs Building from the square, you can also see The Weather Girl, a gilded sculpture of a girl with a bike that tells the weather. On rainy days, it rotates to show her walking her dog with an umbrella.

      There is a bus hub on the northern side of the square, along with a metro station, making it a key public transport hub.

      Key exhibitions

You can also see the Huldremose Woman, whose well-preserved remains are estimated to date back to the first decade of the first century AD.

The National Museum is located in The Prince’s Palace, built by court architect Nicolai Eigtved in 1743-44. It is no longer used by the royal family, but the Great Hall still appears elegant enough to fit princes and princesses.
       
      The Gallery consists of a wide corridor that linked rooms and sleeping quarters and featured plenty of space for exquisite handicrafts. The stucco in the ceiling, the panels, and the oak parquet floor are all thought to be original. The furniture and stove are from the early 18th century.
