The town hall is nice, the square is not

I don't really think the square is worth mentioning at all although the surrounding buildings are looking very nice.

Radhuspladsen in Copenhagen is a really beautiful place and the building itself is also a great pleasure to look at.

The square was across the street from our hotel so we saw it often. There were walking tour folks, food carts, a candle sculpture, and many pigeons. Along one side there was a viewing area for the underground metro construction. There was always something happening.

The city centre in Copenhagen is truly beautiful in terms of classical architecture, so make sure you look up while walking around. The main square with the Town Hall is a great place to start your walk down the pedestrian shopping street, Stroeget, which is full of life.

It was pretty scary. Fireworks flew all over the place and we got one at our feet. Place was really crowded, but the atmosphere was joyfull and the fireworks looked amazing!

Of course, that the main sight of the square is the City Hall. First we noticed the gilded statue of Absalon just above the front door. Next, we had a chance to explore the interior of Rådhus. And even looked at the wedding hall. Definitely recommend to visit.

My wife and I stayed across the street at the Scandic Hotel. This is a very busy area and square. City Hall and Hans Christian Andersen Statue is there also. Bike people control the streets. Watch out that they do not run you over. Take your pictures and move on.

This plaza is of interest but not of great interest. The buildings that line the plaza are commercial as well as the town hall.

Staying in Indre By (Inner City)

Neighbourhood Profile
Indre By (Inner City)
This is the heart of old town Copenhagen, with its blend of charming old buildings and bold new architecture, broad avenues and tiny streets as well as picturesque canals and a modern harbor. The inner city is home to the Royal Danish Theatre, which consists of three buildings, two of which are new and situated on the harbor front. The streets, squares and venues of the inner city and its surrounding neighborhoods, are alive all year round with everything from jazz festivals to outdoor ice skating rinks and parachuting at the lakes right in the center of the city. This compact area boasts beautiful old castles, tranquil parks, and bustling squares where you can always find a bench to stretch out your legs whenever you need a break.
