Frederiksberg

Frederiksberg is situated just next to Copenhagen's city center, but it is runned like an own
city with its own city hall even though it is so integrated with Copenhagen that you wont even
notice when you enter Frederiksberg. With 91 000 inhabitants, Fredriksberg is Denmark´s
5th largest local authority. Frederiksberg is very diverse with its royal garden and castle,
parks, hilly streets, tall modernist highrises, mansions, a long avenue, the zoo and typical
Copenhagen stores and buildings.
Frederiksberg Allé is the main boulevard that goes through this community.

Frederiksberg Allé, the main boulevard, begins at Vesterbro in Copenhagen.

Since a few years back, the "The Dane of the Year" has been pictured in the pavement of Frederiksberg Allé. Right now there are about 20 "Årets dansk".

...Valby Langgade is one of the few hilly streets in Greater Copenhagen.


It is located just next to Søndermarken park, part of the Copenhagen district Valby, but bordering Frederiksberg. The entrance to the park can be seen above.

Søndermarken is close to Frederiksberg have and castle.

This summer day it was time to graduate for many students, so all over the city you could see crazy teens in military vehicles!

Can a restaurant be more typical Danish?

This is a labyrinth next to Pile Allé that you could get lost in. It can take some time to find the core.


Pile Allé with its typical Danish houses. Old cars can be seen everywhere in Copenhagen.



At the entrance to Copenhagen Zoo, bordering Frederiksberg Have, is a neat Eiffel
Tower immitation in wood that I had never seen before. Even if it looks tall, it only
reaches up to the top of the foot of the real Eiffel Tower.

Domus Vista from 1969 is Denmark’s tallest residential building and the second tallest highrise in the whole Denmark.
It is 102m tall and has 30 floors.

Apostolskirke. Doesn't it look like a smaller version of the White House in Washington?


St Markuskirke (Marcus Church).


A typical metro station at the Forum convention center, recognized by the same type of glass pyramids on the ground as at Kongens Nytorv´s station. Forum is a popular venue for rock concerts.
