Gammeltorv is the oldest square in Copenhagen and dates back to the 12th century. Most of the buildings that line the square were built after the Great Fire of 1795 and were designed in Neoclassical style.

Throughout its history, the square was a prominent place for judicial and political events and many of the city halls were located right here too- the first City Hall being damaged during the Hanseatic attacks in the 14th century . The square was also one of the two prominent markets in the city.

Today, the square is one of the busiest places in the city and has many famous buildings located around its periphery- including the building near Frederiksborggade that dates back to the late 19th century, the building near Nygade that is popular for its Renaissance architecture and the building of Alexandrahus that is popular for its Neo-Baroque design.

Other highlights includes:

  • The Caritas Well- a Renaissance styled fountain built by King Christian IV in the early 17th century.
