This emblematic oldest square in Copenhagen (Old Market) With adjoining Nytorv it forms a common space along the Strøget pedestrian street. While the square dates back to the foundation of the city in the 12th century, most of its buildings were constructed after the Great Fire of 1795 in Neoclassical style. Another dominating feature is the Caritas Well, a Renaissance fountain erected by King Christian IV in 1610.

Church of Our Lady - Copenhagen Cathedral
The Copenhagen Cathedral, today designed by the architect C.F. Hansen in Neo-Classicist style. The foundation stone was laid by King Frederik VI in 1817, and the solemn consecration took place on Whitsunday 1829. This site served a church since Bishop Absalon, the founder of Copenhagen, had a small chapel built on the premises. The original church was erected at the highest point in the town around 1200.
The church has seen many important events throughout Danish history. This is where King Valdemar Atterdag gave away his nine-year old daughter Margrethe - later Queen Margrethe I - in marriage in 1363, in 1855 the funeral of Søren Kierkegaard, and in 2004, Crown Prince Frederik and Australian Mary Donaldson were married here.
Inside we have Thorvaldsen's sculptures
The statues of Christ and the twelve apostles. Above the altar, Christ extends his arms in a welcoming gesture, while the apostles watch from the sides of the nave. Judas has been replaced by Paul.
Battle of Copenhagen
In 1807, the cathedral was hit by a incendiary rocket during the British bombardment led by Admiral James Gambier and General Lord Cathcart. The bombardment resulted in the cathedral's burning down.
