This is a noisy construction site at the moment due to the new metro extension - will be done by 2019. There is no point visiting to see the square but you will inevitably come across this area when you visit attractions such as Nyhavn - just don't make a special trip.

Summer time is the best time to visit this area. There's a flea market in the square. There's a big (quite expensive) shopping center nearby

Just cruising around Copenhagen checking the sights. Went through square. Nice architecture and great places to get some food. Right next to the canals and other sights.

This is one of the finest squares in Europe but you won't see much of it at the moment as they're building a new metro station in/under it which is not due for completion until 2019 (I think - might be earlier). Probably best to hold off till then unless you're really interested in civil engineering.

Although at the moment you cannot see much of the place due to the ongoing Metro construction, it is still the most impressive Square with its many fine buildings: Charlottenborg: the Royal art academy, Thott's mansion: now the French Embassy, Hotel d'Angleterre and Magasin.the Royal Theatre and Erichsen's Palæ: head quarters of Danske Bank

While it is a great square to visit it is mainly for its historical value that holds any interest and of course the architecture of the buildings that surround the square. Unfortunately with the construction occurring when we visited it was difficult to appreciate it to its fullest.

In construction the whole time of the visit, but they have made it very interesting with art elements and a spinning wheel. Good place to relax and meet people!

This construction site bears no resemblance to the park that you will want to visit when work is complete. Its awkward to walk around and the "antiques" are odds and ends of garage sale rejects. Take the canal boat tour twice instead.

Unfortunately, one of the city’s most notable and liveliest squares in today a huge construction site. There is not much to see, but you can enjoy the nice view toward Nyhavn or Stroeget.

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.
