Great fires of 1728 and 1795 as well as wars against Sweden (1659)
and England (1807) have diminished the number of medieval buildings in
Copenhagen, but a number of impressive renaissance buildings (Rosenborg
Castle, Stock Exchange, Round Tower, Our Saviour’s Church etc. erected
under King Christian IV (1588-1648), and many renaissance and baroque
churches still exist. So do many colourful, narrow streets of well
built and well kept houses erected soon after the disasters.
The Town Hall (1905) with its 105 m tower is one of the most
impressive buildings in central Copenhagen. A stroll through central
Copenhagen may end up in one of the many green parks, in the TIVOLI
amusement park or in the harbour area with its many spectacular modern
architectural activities - and of course: The Little Mermaid.
