If you do not start your city walking tour here, plan to make it one of your stops. A fountain providing water to locals since the 1600’s featuring a little boy urinating under the watch of a pregnant lady squirting water from her breasts. A large fancy, ornate booth or kiosk which was one of Copenhagen’s first community telephone centers.... More

One of the nicest squares along Stroget. Nice, romantic cafes and outdoor places/restaurants. The Caritas Well, the oldest fountain in Copenhagen, is its distinctive "landmark".

Along Strøget is Gammeltorv which is Copenhagen's oldest square and across the street is neighbouring Nytorv. Both squares are hugely charismatic and are surrounded by Neoclassical style buildings. When we visited a Christmas Market had been set up which made the area feel very festive. Whilst in Gammeltorv it is worth visting Caritas Fountain which is the oldest fountain in... More

One of many "squares" in Copenhagen! Surrounded by a few bars and restaurants! I'm sure you'll like atleast one of them!

It is actually two squares. There is the Caritas Well, a renaissance fountain from 1610. Around there are a lot of restaurants cafés, it is a very pleasant place.

After strolling Stroget we came out into this large open space with a lovely fountain. Not too much going on, but as we needed lunch we checked out the restaurants and chose City Kroen. It is very old and serves true Danish food - not always easy to come by in this cosmopolitan city. A pleasant spot to rest before... More

A huge square (actually, it's 2 squares adjointed), but somehow empty. No banches or light at night, one food stand and not crowded.

The Gammeltorv is a very large square that is very nice and it has the beautiful Caritas Well, a Renaissance fountain erected by King Christian IV in 1610. When we were there recently, we saw a market selling Italian food that seemed to be very good.

This is a rather oddly shaped square. The square features a nice fountain and numerous restaurants and cafés. It is just next to Strøget and Nytorv.
