If your idea of exploring a city is observing it like a local, the Radhuspladsen (City hall Square) is just where you need to be. The historic square dates back to the mid 19th century and was popular for its hay market.
In the late 19th century, the whole area underwent a major transformation and soon some of the most talented architects like Vilhelm Dahlerup and Valdemar Koch were roped in along with Martin Nyrop to design the Public square with Palazzo Pubblico in Italy as its inspiration. The square was redesigned in the late 20th century and till today the place remains to be one of the most charming places in Copenhagen.
Highlights of the place include:
- The Dragon Fountain (the Zero Kilometre milestone is placed nearby)
- Gorgeous sculptures like ‘The Weather Girl’ that dates back to 1936, ‘The Lur Blowers’ that dates back to 1913 and the statue of Hans Christian Andersen- the mastermind behind classics like ‘The Little Mermaid’ and the ‘The Ugly Duckling’.
The many restaurants and cafes seen around the square are a common hangout spot for youngsters and is apt for dropping by for a drink.

This seems to be the heart of the city, the most important landmark in your visit to Copenhagen. If you did not get to the City Hall Square, you haven't been to Copenhagen. Try not to stay in a hotel close to it though, since the tower clock rings every 15 minutes and it gets louder as the city gets more quiet at night. From this square you can walk to shopping malls, bars, restaurants, cafes. This would be a good place to start your visit.
This is one of the most visited place in Copenhagen , there’s a free toilet 🚽 right opposite and the place is clean and neat 😊🇩🇰 there’s always some tourists around visiting and the locals as well... in less than 500meter there’s a shopping street with all the store you can think 🤔 of including Gucci, Louis Vuitton and more... I strongly recommend this place when visiting Copenhagen
Beautiful place. Must visit in Copenhagen in the evening when the light come on It is no time square or picadilly circus but it has its own charm.
Great tour available but sadly only twice per day. A chance to climb to the top of the city Hall doesn't come along too often so this is a wonderful experience.
Popular area of the city with a nice vibe. There are several places to eat in this area. There is also an open square with the dragon fountain.
