Fodor's Expert Review Kongens Nytorv

Centrum Plaza/Square

A mounted statue of Christian V dominates Kongens Nytorv, King's New Square. The square is the beautiful center of the royal, historic, and affluent part of the city. The statue was crafted in 1688 by the French sculptor Abraham-César Lamoureux, and the subject is conspicuously depicted as a Roman emperor. Every year, at the end of June, graduating high school students arrive in truckloads and dance beneath the furrowed brow of the sober statue.
