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 - Write a Review

  • Beautiful when the works in the city hall building do not cover it completely. Still a nice meeting point, especially for free tours of the city.

  • Daily free city walking tour from here. Search for the exact Times. We hat ours at 2 pm. They have umbrellas where it was written on it. So you can’t miss them.

  • I mean, there's pretty buildings to look at, but also a huge construction site. One guy was peacefully manifesting peace and love or something on the stairs, having a great time with his smoke. There's a hot dog sausage wagon and few places to sit. Overall pleasant experience, but I guess it'd suck if it rains.

  • An iconic location in Copenhagen, however it is pretty blemished by the ongoing metro construction site that will finish in 2018 og 2019...by then it will be awesome.

  • Such a nice place u must need to visit this place in Denmark
