Copenhagen in June – Frederiksberg, Istedgade, Carlsberg brewery, City and more

A weekend in June I visited Copenhagen, and as usual tried to see and photograph diverse styles and districts, not only the most touristy ones.

From the train from Malmö:


Turning Torso and the new Entré mall at Värnhemstorget.


New residential buildings u/c at Malmö’s limestone quarry.


Malmö skyline, dominated by Turning Torso, from the train, at the Swedish side of Öresundsbron. The chimneys will be torn down.


The same view from a bit further away, also including Kronprinsen, Hilton and St Petri Church.

From Istedgade to Valby:


Istedgade, a notorious street in Vesterbro close to the city center. It begins with hotels and tourist attractions but soon transforms into a row of sex shops, gay clubs and visible prostitution mixed, and then transforms into quarters with Arabian restaurants and shops:


















Kristikirken (Christ Church) is situated at Enghaveplads where Istedgade ends. It is built in limestone and has green details, perhaps the most exotic and special church in Greater Copenhagen.






Enghaveplads with the 21-storey Kongens Bryghus in the background.

Valby:




These cozy quarters are located between Frederiksberg and Valby, close to the Carlsberg brewery.








Küchlersgade.

The mighty Carlsberg brewery in the district Valby:




Carlsberg HQ, built in 1961, is the 3rd tallest highrise in Denmark. It is 88m tall and has 22 floors. The Carlsberg complex is a mix of such diverse architectural styles as Italian renaissance, 60s moderinism and Islamic architecture. That will be presented in the following pictures.




Kongens Bryghus, a residential building from 1957. 21 floors, 70m tall.


The chimney of Carlsberg.






Fyrtårnet, a guardian tower from 1883 belonging to the brewery.


The famous Elephant tower, Elefanttårnet, famous from the „elephant beer“ bottles. " It was drawn by Vilhelm Dahlerup, the architect who also made Ny Carlsberg Glyptotek.




The famous elephants on the foot of the tower.




Elefanttårnet was built in 1901, so the swastika was made before it become a symbol of the Nazis. And besides, the Nazi symbol is rotated 45 degrees. Before the war, the swastika often symobolized the Nordic.
















The Carlsberg museum also has a swastika on the top.




The end of the Carlsberg complex.

Looks like quite a long walk, and enjoyable too. I like how the different types of neighbourhoods just go from one to the other without a break (which would be the Stockholm style ) I really like the elephants, I miss stuff like that in modern architecture.

Thanks!
It was a long walk and that is about just the half of the walk.

More:

Around Søndermarken Park, Valby:


Pile Allé, changing name to...


...Valby Langgade is one of the few hilly streets in Greater Copenhagen.


It is located just next to Søndermarken park in Frederiksberg.


Søndermarken is close to Frederiksberg have and castle.


Part of the park with a natural sepia made by red sunglasses. 







Pile Allé:


This summer day it was time to graduate for many students, so all over the city you could see crazy teens in military vehicles!


Can a restaurant be more typical Danish?


This is a labyrinth next to Pile Allé that you could get lost in. It can take some time to find the core.


Pile Allé.




Frederiksberg Castle and the Zoo Tower.




Old cars at Pile Allé.

Frederiksberg Allé and its surroundings:


The entrance to Frederiksberg Have.


The western end of Frederiksberg Allé.




More crazy students!


A horse carriage at Frederiksberg Allé.




A different solution in Frederiksberg!

Vesterbro:


Vesterbrogade.










Codan building.


A restaurant we visited at Vesterbrogade.


Radisson SAS Royal and a glass building.


A scary (?) attraction at Tivoli, seen from the central station.


Detail of a building near Rådhuspladsen.


A new highrise u/c close to the train station.


The Town Hall looks really tall from this angle. And it is Copenhagen’s tallest building.

wow, these are some beautiful photos! Copenhagen looks very pedestrian friendly, clean, green, and lively. Can't wait to make it out there sometime. Did you by any chance get to visit the Christiania neighborhood? they don't allow photography there, but it's a very, very unique place from what i've read.
