Radhuspladsen - Review
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.

Radhuspladsen, Copenhagen Reviews
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
Nice plaza with beautiful old buildings. The square itself is however located next to a really big and busy road. Next to that it is currently under construction and therefore the views aren't that enjoyable at this time.
Simply beautiful. Very very nice costumers service. We loved it
Nice attraction especially the city hall, there is a lot of tourists, so be early if you want to avoid them.
Great place to observe beautiful architecture and enjoy some food from the cafes very near the square...
