A new town to the king and the upper class.
Frederick V. builds in 1748 the district "Frederiksstad" in the heart of Copenhagen. Both to pay tribute to him but also to satisfy the nobility need for large mansions, and raise the profile of the ancient capital of modern trade and seafaring.
Nothing in "Frederiksstad" are randomly placed. Everything is made with ruler and right angles. Perfectly straight streets with large houses and mansions located on straight lines and with a right-angled system - with Amalienborg (Queens palace) and the Marble Church in the middle of it all.
On this tour you will visit the different beautiful mansions, get inside the marble church and visit some of the more simple buildings that used to house the poor population. We also visit an old military area from the 1600 century that is very idyllic and worth a visit.
We stop the tour by the water, where it is possible to take the ferry to the other side of the harbour, where you can visit a very nice street food market and try delicious snacks and drinks.
Can´t wait to show my neighbourhood of Frederiksstaden.
