What To Expect

Formerly this was an area of fortifications, created by Christian IV, in 1600. These fortifications were in turn protected by a moat. In 1950, the process of redevelopment of the area began and this moat looked more like an open sewer. It was decided to place this now famous street over the old moat.
The land along the street was sold in lots starting in 1856. Mostly buildings dedicated to charity, such as for officers' widows, were constructed.
The buildings at numbers 8, 10 and 12, built in the mid-1800s, are listed in the Danish register of protected buildings and sites.

Det Ny Teater
Opened in September 1908, it is one of the largest theaters in Denmark.
The idea of construction was to create a large theater and at the same time open a passage between Gammel Kongevej and the new Vesterbro Passage (now part of Vesterbrogade).
