Kongens Nytorv

Kongens Nytorv (King's New Square) is a public square in Copenhagen, Denmark, centrally located at the end of the pedestrian shopping street Strøget. The finest and largest square of the city, it was laid out by Christian V in 1670 in connection with a major extension of the fortified city, and has an equestrian statue of him at it's centre. This initiative moved the centre of the city from the medieval area around Gammeltorv, at that time a muddy medieval marketplace, to the new square of Kongens Nytorv with it's cobbled stones complete with a garden complex inspired by the city planning seen in Paris from the early 17th century. Important buildings facing the square include the Charlottenborg Palace from 1671, the Thott Palace from 1683 (now the French Embassy), and the Royal Danish Theater from 1874.

Nyhavn

Nyhavn is a 17th century waterfront, canal and entertainment district. Stretching from Kongens Nytorv to the harbour front just south of the Royal Playhouse Nyhavn is lined by brightly coloured 17th and early 18th century townhouses, housing bars, cafés and restaurants. Serving as a "heritage harbour", the canal has many historical wooden ships.

Strøget

Strøget is the longest pedestrian shopping area in Europe and is a popular tourist attraction in the centre of town.

Strøget runs between the town square by Copenhagen City Hall (Rådhuspladsen) and The King's New Square (Kongens Nytorv).

Many of the city's most famous and exclusive stores, such as Illums Bolighus, Magasin du Nord, the Royal Copenhagen Porcelain Factory, and several Designer Shops, are located along Strøget. There are also a multitude of souvenir shops and high street shops.
