European cities are known for their quaint public squares that showcase the best of local life. These kinetic epicenters of entertainment, commerce and cuisine seem to attract locals and travelers alike—particularly in Copenhagen. The centrally located City Hall Square (Radhuspladsen) is conveniently stationed in the middle of the city, near the iconic City Hall building.
Travelers who venture here are likely to stumble upon a performance or a protest, since this town square attracts as many artists as it does activists. In addition to the slice of local life City Hall Square offers visitors, travelers can also see some of the city’s major buildings, like Politikens Hus, Denmark’s top newspaper, and iconic sculptures like the Dragon Fountain and the Weather Girl here.
The square is located at the southwest end of Stroget—a pedestrian walkway that links City Hall Square to Kongens Nytorv.
