The City Court of Copenhagen

The City Court of Copenhagen Travel photography Family-friendly: true
The neo-classicist Courthouse, designed by Professor C.F. Hansen, is a masterpiece of Danish architecture. In 1795, the former Town Hall, situated between “Gammeltorv” and “Nytorv”, was destroyed in a fire which destroyed large parts of the city. The location of the former construction is marked in the pavement at “Nytorv”. The present Courthouse was erected in 1805-15, the works being delayed due to the bombardment of Copenhagen by the English in 1807, during the Napoleonic wars. Until 1905 the building served both as courthouse and town hall. The building is now protected and the front has been restored.
