Højbro Plads

One of Copenhagen’s most charming locations is this cobblestone plaza. Although it appears to be one unit at first appearance, it is really separated into  Højbro  Plads and Amagertorv.

Bishop Absalon is shown on a sizable monument on  Højbro  Plads, pointing in the direction of Christiansborg Slot from the saddle of his horse. Amagertorv may be seen if you turn your head away from the canal and stare along the long promenade. The remarkable Storkespringvandet (Stork Fountain), which was erected in the 19th century, is located in the ancient city market. The birds are herons, despite the misleading moniker.

An intriguing twin-gabled house in the northern part of Amagertorv was constructed in the Dutch Renaissance style in 1616. The Royal Copenhagen Porcelain Shop is located in this historic structure, which is one of the oldest in the city. The Georg Jensen showroom, which specializes in upscale tableware, is close by. Additionally, a modest museum housing some of Jensen’s first works is located here. It is dedicated to his work.
