Christian 4th and His Buildings
On this city walk in Copenhagen I show you some of the beautiful buildings erected by King Christian the 4th. We will meet at the Old Square, Gammel Torv.
From there vi head towards the brew-house, the Royale Arsenal Museum, we pass the Stock Exchange, Holmens Church and look towards Christianshavn and Christania.
We cross through the city to the Round Tower, and if you like we can walk up the tower. I will tell you about all the symbols of the tower and show what has been designed by Christian the 4th himself. Before we continue towards Rosenborg Castle we take a look at Trinitatis Church and at the Residential Hall, Regensen.
From Rosenborg Castle we pass through the Royal Garden to the first buildings to house labourers in this case fleet personel. It is called the New Small Houses, Nyboder. From here we walk to the Citadel, Kastellet.
If you want to visit Rosenborg Castle and The Crown Jewels it is possible.
Denmark is the 2nd oldest monarchy in the world so history has provided us with many kings. If you only have time to learn about one of them, King Christian IV is the one you need to know.
