The area north of Kongens Have (Copenhagen’s oldest park and home to Rosenborg Castle) offers beloved green spaces, striking architecture, and a quiet yet central location. Historically known as New Copenhagen (Ny-København in Danish), it’s famously home to Nyboder (a historic row house district). Known for a high density of Nordic Functionalist buildings from the mid-twentieth century, it’s relatively quieter than its neighbouring micro-neighbourhoods (it borders Frederiksstaden to the east, Østre Anlæg to the west, and Kastellet to the north). The first example of major urban planning in Copenhagen, it’s also well known for its grid plan conceived by King Christian IV, the force behind many of the city’s most notable buildings built during his reign between 1588 and 1648.
