Amaliegade 38 (1792). Library “Det Classenske Bibliotek”. By designs of the founder, Johan Frederik Classen (1725-1792). The Library had 30,000 volumes, the third after the Royal Library and the University Library, and was open to the public on weekdays from 11 AM to 2 PM. In 1834, Politivennen reported that the visitors suffered this experience from a neighbouring guardhouse: “It offers an extremely ugly sight that disgraces the street. But even more, this is increased by the dirty use it has. Two streams of muddy filth flow from the guardhouse into the gutter, so that the bypassers, and especially ladies have to jump over them, in order not to become soiled. ... it seems incomprehensible that such a place is tolerated in the city's main street between Amalienborg and the Esplanade. At least, the guard house should be moved from time to time to distribute the evil.” #visitdenmark #opdagdanmark #MoodyGrams #Amaliegade #classenskebibliotek #library #bibliotek #johanfrederikclassen #travel_drops #houses_ofthe_world #streetsofdenmark #city_explore #cityphotography #copenhagensworld #theprettycities #københavn #copenhagen #visitcopenhagen #voreskbh #igerscopenhagen #cphpicks #mitkbh #arkitektur #architecturelovers #facade #archi_focus_on #archi_unlimited #citylife #urbanphotography #politivennenlive

Hovedgaden Karlslunde. Seventh and last stop on the hike on the old country road from Tåstrup to Køge. Check out older posts and use link in bio! In Karlslunde they just enlarged the main town street a few hundred meters, to connect to the main road. A little south to the town, the old main road merges with the future coastal road to Køge, so the trip ends here. Drive slowly next time, and watch out for details along the road!

Nyhøjsvej 1 (1864). Tåstrup. Third stop on the hike on the old country road from Tåstrup to Køge.Check out older posts and use link in bio! This house, now inside Tåstrup, once was 1½ km out of town, aside the straight lined former country road between Tåstrup and Køge.

Good Morning, 2019: Toftebakkevej, Valby. Until 1923 Lille Ørstedsvej. The small houses were built for workers 1885-86 by carpenter Hans Pedersen, close to the nearby industrial area: the cotton mill, porcelain factory, Carlsberg Brewery, Aller and coffee company Richs. Together with Carlsberg Kvarteret, they belong to the oldest urbanized parts of Valby. #valby #toftebakkevej #danskerneshistorie #workingclassarea #cozycopenhagen #voreskbh #streetphotography #cityscape #city_explore #cityphotography #copenhagensworld #theprettycities #københavn #copenhagen #visitcopenhagen #voreskbh #igerscopenhagen #cphpicks #mitkbh #copenhagenheat #copenhagensecrets #architecturelovers #archi_focus_on #archi_unlimited #danskerneshistorie #urbanphotography #total_denmark #streetsofdenmark #rækkehuse #brickbuildings

Læderstræde. Copenhagen had thousands of horses 200 years ago. And that - according to Politivennen in 1805 - was an issue: “Not only in Købmagergade, but also in Læderstræde, and especially the last place, it has happened that people who passed the holding coaches have been in danger of being bitten by horses who snapped at them. As it is impossible for the master or at least his people to know that some of their horses got this dangerous habit, we hope that they will never leave such an animals in the street. It was not unjust, if a very punitive punishment was imposed on the coachmen, whose horse snapped some passersby.” #læderstræde #visitdenmark #opdagdanmark #MoodyGrams #globalcapture #gottolove_this #travel_drops #houses_ofthe_world #danisharchitecture #streetsofdenmark #allstreetshots #city_explore #cityphotography #copenhagensworld #theprettycities #københavn #copenhagen #visitcopenhagen #voreskbh #igerscopenhagen #cphpicks #mitkbh #arkitektur #architecturelovers#archi_focus_on #archi_unlimited #citylife #urbanphotography #politivennenlive

Old shop sign, now Cafe Det Elektriske hjørne. Store Regnegade 12 (1888). The Swiss immigrant Carl Ludwig Seifert (1834-1898) established a company in 1865, his son, Rudolph Seifert (1857-1929) joined it. The company made hats for students and the police, and gala uniforms, from 1903 royal Danish court supplier, 1911 royal Swedish court supplier. In 1947, D’Angleterre made a bar in the ground floor, designed by architect Finn Juhl (1912-1989). The Seifert façade is made from mahogany. Finn Juhl designed furnitures, seen at museums. Some are still produced and sold internationally under the name of "House of Finn Juhl". #storeregnegade @elhjoernet @travel2copenhagen #visitdenmark #opdagdanmark #cozycopenhagen #voreskbh #streetphotography #finnjuhl #streetsofdenmark #cityscape #city_explore #cityphotography #copenhagensworld #theprettycities #københavn #copenhagen #visitcopenhagen #voreskbh #igerscopenhagen #cphpicks #mitkbh #copenhagenheat #copenhagensecrets #bicycles #cykler #butiksskilt #citylife #urbanphotography #danskerneshistorie

Kronprinsessegade didn’t exist as a street before after the town fire in 1795. Before that, It was a part of Rosenborg Garden (King’s Garden), left. The street was established by cutting off 56 meter of the garden. As the houses were built almost at the same time, and preserved until today, the street appears rather unique. In the redevelopment plan for the area of December 1941, part of the street was supposed to be torn down entirely, together with Borgergade and Adelgade, but this was rejected by the ministry in 1949. #kronprinsessegade #visitdenmark #opdagdanmark #cozycopenhagen #voreskbh #streetphotography #travel_drops #streetsofdenmark #cityscape #city_explore #cityphotography #copenhagensworld #københavn #copenhagen #visitcopenhagen #voreskbh #igerscopenhagen #cphpicks #mitkbh #copenhagenheat #copenhagensecrets #architecturelovers #archi_focus_on #archi_unlimited #citylife #urbanphotography #danskerneshistorie @travel2copenhagen #total_denmark

Gammel Kongevej 120 (1907), Det Danske Gaskompagni was the first in Denmark to provide gas for street light, established in 1853. The first city was Odense. Frederiksberg had gas 1860, and it was here the company moved its headquarter in 1866. In 1907 in this building designed in baroque style by architect Christen Gotfred Tvede (1863-1947). In 1921, it was turned over to the municipality. Most people however remember the antique bookstore Frederiksberg Antikvariat and the eccentric owner. #christengotfredtvede #baroquearchitecture #visitdenmark #opdagdanmark #MoodyGrams #gottolove_this #travel_drops #tv2lorry #streetsofdenmark #cityscape #city_explore #cityphotography #copenhagensworld #theprettycities #københavn #copenhagen #frederiksberg #arkitektur #architecturelovers#archi_focus_on #archi_unlimited #citylife #urbanphotography #just_features #visitfrederiksberg #danisharchitecture #danskerneshistorie #brickbuilding #neobaroque

Snaregade. The street got its name from councillor Erling Jonssøn Snare. The houses were partly saved from the town fires in 1728 and 1795. The half timbered house, right, is no. 5, and from 1732. A third floor was added in 1768. The remarkable yellow house, center, is no. 6 from 1799. #snaregade #visitdenmark #opdagdanmark #cozycopenhagen #voreskbh #streetphotography #travel_drops #streetsofdenmark #cityscape #city_explore #cityphotography #copenhagensworld #københavn #copenhagen #visitcopenhagen #voreskbh #igerscopenhagen #cphpicks #mitkbh #copenhagenheat #copenhagensecrets #architecturelovers #archi_focus_on #archi_unlimited #citylife #urbanphotography #danskerneshistorie @travel2copenhagen #total_denmark #halftimbered #cobbles #cobblestones

Store Søndervoldstræde (1848) is the oldest of Daniel Frederik Løweners (1805-1873) Jernstøberi og Maskinværksteder. From 1916 Fritz Hansens (1847-1902) Møbelfabrik. His son was one of the first (1915) to introduce the method of forming wood which made furniture classics like Arne Jacobsen’s “Ant”, “3107” and other Danish classics of the 1920s and 1930s possible. The original building was in raw bricks. Long before that, in 1828, Politivennen wrote (with dripping sarcasm) about the boys in that street: “One can only admire the street boys of different ages and sizes for the courage and the audacy they show daily. Not only are they using the meanest insults against people whose appearance is so unfortunate to offend them. But they also, at a fair distance, assault the Amagerport guarding patrols who try to chase them away, with harassments and sometimes with pebbles. From their gathering place at the end of the Dronningensgade and Søndervoldstræde, they take any liberty, and one can’t but admire the many inventive heads that can be found among them.” #visitdenmark #opdagdanmark #MoodyGrams #globalcapture #gottolove_this #travel_drops #houses_ofthe_world #tv2lorry #streetsofdenmark #city_explore #cityphotography #copenhagensworld #theprettycities #københavn #copenhagen #visitcopenhagen #voreskbh #igerscopenhagen #cphpicks #mitkbh #arkitektur #architecturelovers#archi_focus_on #archi_unlimited #citylife #urbanphotography #just_features #danskerneshistorie #historylovers #politivennenlive

Østergade 26 (1901). “Cityhus” by Erik Schiødte (1849-1909) and Christian Arntzen (1852-1911). The numbers 28 and 30 are missing because Kristen Bernikowsgade by the end of the 1800s was changed from a narrow street into today’s broader one. A consortium (Fisker-Volmer) bought Østergade 26, 28, 30, 32 og 34 and part of Kristen Bernikovsstræde, Antonistræde and Pilestræde, and built these big business properties. They tore down the beautiful property of a manufactory. The small arcade was established 1972, designed by Ole Hagens Tegnestue. Well known shops like the perfumery Breining, Crome & Goldschmidt and Vinstuen Bernikow were here. #strøget #erikschiødte #christianarntzen #olehagen #olehagenstegnestue #cityhus #danskerneshistorie #citylife #cityscape #city_explore #københavn #copenhagen #visitcopenhagen #voreskbh #copenhagenheat #copenhagensecrets #lifeofdenmark #igerscopenhagen#cphpicks #mitkbh #arkitektur #architecturelovers #bygningshistorie #archi_focus_on #archi_unlimited #houseportrait @tommyhilfiger #streetsofdenmark #allstreetshots #urbanphotography #danisharchitecture

Smedestræde, Valby is an example of what happens when modern buildings copy older ones. The two houses to the left (no. 12 and 10) are from the time (1889 and 1887) when Valby already had changed from a small village 5 kilometers from Copenhagen, into a suburban town. The two red roofed buildings (back) are from 1999, and replaced some older, lower buildings. #valby #smedestræde #visitdenmark #opdagdanmark #cozycopenhagen #voreskbh #streetphotography #cityscape #city_explore #cityphotography #copenhagensworld #theprettycities #københavn #copenhagen #visitcopenhagen #voreskbh #igerscopenhagen #cphpicks #mitkbh #copenhagenheat #copenhagensecrets #architecturelovers #archi_focus_on #archi_unlimited #citylife #urbanphotography #total_denmark #streetsofdenmark #allstreetshots #brickbuildings #redroof

Hotel Prindsen (1880), Algade, Roskilde. Architect Ove Petersen (1830-1892). Together with Vilhelm Dahlerup he designed the present Royal Theatre in Copenhagen. The historicist building is the third version of the hotel, which got roots back to a guest house in this place 1695. It burnt down i 1731. The hotel cracked in 2015, and the new owners instead of running a law suit to keep the name, changed it to Roskilde by Zleep Hotels. A few decades before the hotel was built, and according to Politivennen, 1826, a party of 3 men and 3 women visited Roskilde market, but all guest houses were full. Instead, they were recommended a nearby farm. They were welcomed by a man, the horses were installed in the stable, and coffee on the table. It turned out that the man who acted as owner and host, was a tenant! Further investigations revealed him as a certain former host and pharmacist Thim. #roskildepalæ #roskilde #zleep #zleephotels @zleephotels #visitroskilde #citywalk #ovepetersen #prindsen #architecture #architecturelovers #bygningskultur #danskerneshistorie #total_denmark #visitdenmark #opdagdanmark #politivennenlive #houseportrait #lifeofdenmark #historicbuildings #danisharchitecture #streetsofdenmark #best_denmark_photos #hiddengemsl #houses_ofthe_world #traveldrops #historicisme #historicism

Store Kongensgade 67 (1750-1807). Backyards like these were dangerous back in 1816, as noted in Politivennen: “By the strong thunderstorm on Friday, July 12, a large part of Store Kongensgade was flooded. Not only was the water so high that for several hours the street was unpassable, but it also flowed into the basements and spoiled the residents' bedding and household utensils. Since the sluice or water reservoir could not receive and drain the water, I presume it may have been constipated. Similar cases could have very dangerous consequences if it occurred at night.” #visitdenmark #opdagdanmark #cozycopenhagen #voreskbh #bestcopenhagen #travel_drops #houses_ofthe_world #tv2lorry #streetsofdenmark #cityscape #city_explore #cityphotography #copenhagensworld #theprettycities #københavn #copenhagen #visitcopenhagen #igerscopenhagen #cphpicks #mitkbh #copenhagenheat #copenhagensecrets #architecturelovers#archi_focus_on #archi_unlimited #baggårdssafari #backyards #urbanphotography #danskerneshistorie #politivennenlive

Lille Grønnegade, Roskilde. Looking down this street, you can get an impression of the chaos when there were horse markets. In 1826, Politivennen reported this: “the buyers who come to buy merchandise in the stores, were often disturbed and troubled by several horse packs, which came from the small marketplace at the mill houses on the western end of Roskilde. When they can’t sell their horses there, they brought 4-5 horses through the street where the shopkeeper market is held down to the east end of the actual horse market, and partly from the latter to the former place. This causes a pressure and congestion that was just unpleasant for buyers and sellers, especially as one could fear that some of the horses would like to have some kind of object for biting, kicking up, etc. which easily could happen as 5 to 6 horses are tied to each other, and only controlled by a man or boy who rides the front, and thus can not prevent the horse from damaging someone, only by using harness” #roskilde #visitroskilde #visitdenmark #opdagdanmark #loves_united_denmark #loves_united_scandinavia #gottolove_this #travel_drops #tv2lorry #streetsofdenmark #cityscape #city_explore #cityphotography #copenhagensworld #theprettycities #københavn #copenhagen #igerscopenhagen #arkitektur #architecturelovers#archi_focus_on #archi_unlimited #citylife #urbanphotography #just_features #best_denmark_photos #streetsofdenmark #politivennenlive

Gammel Landevej, Roskilde. “Old Country Road”. Today it is hard to see that this once was the main road between Copenhagen and Roskilde, the old Roskildevejen. The road here went through the fields of the farm Hedegården (the name still remain, as a school is named after it), and you would already have past the first tull barrier, where you had to pay. Further down the road, you’d have to pass another tull barrier. Today only the name of the road is left, and today’s Roskildevej runs further up north. #roskilde #visitroskilde #visitdenmark #opdagdanmark #loves_united_denmark #danskerneshistorie #gottolove_this #streetsofdenmark #cityscape #city_explore #cityphotography #theprettycities #citylife #urbanphotography #danskerneshistorie #best_denmark_photos #streetsofdenmark #hygge #villavej #børnefamilie #family #familylife #forstadsidyl #lifeinthesuburbs #suburbanlife #roskildevej

Teglgårdsstræde, Copenhagen. This peaceful street is quite different from what was reported in “Politivennen” in 1838: “We would really appreciate a little help from our excellent police, in order to get so much peace in this street, that we can stay there in a tolerable way. It really seems to be the gathering place for the worst rioters, the city can show. We would briefly mention the following, and ask the honorable police to take care of them as vigorously as they can: 1. Children from all adjacent streets and alleyways have their favorite gathering place, mostly on the pavements, often blocking the pedestrians completely. In addition, several of them are equipped with watchmen whistles, which they blow and disturb the residents all day long. 2. The garbage collectors in this street has the custom to make noise with their rattles fifteen minutes. 3. A couple of fools, or fun lovers have a good time, standing on the corner of the rampart, shouting "hurrings" for 1 full hour at a time. It is said, that it is because once upon a time someone who didn’t buy anything from them, asked to moderate their inhumane roar. 4. The turf sellers’ roars in the streets are well known, and has been complaint about before.” The ramparts were where you can see the trees in the background. #teglgårdsstræde #visitdenmark #opdagdanmark #cozycopenhagen #voreskbh #streetphotography #travel_drops #tv2lorry #streetsofdenmark #cityscape #city_explore #cityphotography #copenhagensworld #theprettycities #københavn #copenhagen #visitcopenhagen #voreskbh #igerscopenhagen #cphpicks #mitkbh #copenhagenheat #copenhagensecrets #architecturelovers #archi_focus_on #archi_unlimited #citylife #urbanphotography #danskerneshistorie @travel2copenhagen #politivennenlive #total_denmark

“Krebsegården”. Studiestræde 17A (1803). This place carries a lot of history, from when this was the periphery of Copenhagen, late1400s, and until the present house from 1803. Noone knows for sure why it is called Krebsegården, maybe named after a person. The present house was built after the town fire in 1795. Since then, it has housed craftmen, officials and more. From 1970, in the backyard's ground floor, ceramist Hanne Carlsen worked where there is now an art gallery. And there still is one, Gallery Krebsen, located in the backyard #gallerikrebsen #studiestræde #visitdenmark #opdagdanmark #cozycopenhagen #voreskbh #backyard #travel_drops #tv2lorry #streetsofdenmark #cityscape #city_explore #cityphotography #copenhagensworld #theprettycities #københavn #copenhagen #visitcopenhagen #voreskbh #igerscopenhagen #cphpicks #mitkbh #copenhagenheat #copenhagensecrets #architecturelovers #archi_focus_on #archi_unlimited #citylife #urbanphotography @travel2copenhagen #baggårdssafari #total_denmark
