Frederiksberg Gardens is one of the largest and most attractive greenspaces in Copenhagen, Denmark. Together with the adjacent Søndermarken it forms a green area of 64 hectares at the western edge of Inner Copenhagen, it is a romantic landscape garden designed in the English style. Frederiksberg Gardens was established by King Frederik IV in connection with the construction of Frederiksberg Palace as his new summer retreat on high grounds atop Valby Hill. Work on the project began in the last half of the 1690s with inspiration from Italy and France which Frederick, at that time still Crown Prince, had visited on several occasions, he commissioned the eminent Swedish architect Nicodemus Tessin to draw a proposal and the final plan was subsequently made by Hans Heinrich Scheel, a captain in the Corps of Royal Engineers. The plan involved a parterre with a complex system of cascades on the sloping terrain in front of the new palace, it was fed by a inefficient system of pumps which never came to work properly.
In the end, Johan Cornelius Krieger, at the time working on an extension and adaption of Fredensborg Palace, north of Copenhagen, was called upon to redesign the parterre. Unusually of the time, he gave up the parterre and instead transformed the slope into a series of terraces. In the 1790s, as fashion changed, the park was adapted into an English landscape garden. P. Petersen created a new garden plan in 1795, he created a typical English-style landscape garden with winding lawns, lakes and spinneys as well as grottos, temples and summerhouses. The final result may well have been based on Johan Ludwig Mansa's book on English-style gardening written in 1798. Frederik VI was fond of the garden. From 1804, he sailed the canals in a gondola, it was moved to Frederiksborg Castle and Lake Esrum. Though a palace park, the general public had access to the grounds but sailors and people in poor clothing or carrying large bundles were turned away by the guard at the park's sole entrance. Not until 1865 did access to the park become unrestricted, in line with what was the case elsewhere in the city, such as at Langelinie.
Smørrebrødsplænen, on the corner of Roskildevej and Pile Allé, where K. B.'s tennis halls are today, became a popular picnic destination for families. Frederiksberg Gardens is an English-style Romantic landscape garden with winding paths, lakes, small islands and magnificent trees. A large variety of plants and birds can be seen, including mute swans, greylag geese, grey herons, Canada geese. Of the romantic landscape garden, the park houses two follies, waterfalls and other garden features; the main entrance to Frederiksberg Gardens was, in its present form, built in 1755, following the fire two years earlier at the Prince's House, the precursor of Frederiksberg Palace, which used to be located at the site. The gate was designed by Lauritz de Thurah who had become general master builder after Eigtved's death; the vases at the top of the two sandstone pillars were executed by the sculptor Johann Friedrich Hännel. The gate opens to a path which passes between two yellow buildings with white details.
They are the two surviving wings of the Prince's House. The south wing, located on the left-hand side when entering the park, was converted into an orangery by Nicolai Eigtved in 1744 and is now part of the Royal Danish Horticultural Society's Garden; the north wing, located on the right-hand side, is used by the park's administration. The Chinese summerhouse was completed in 1803 as a replacement for a pavilion which had stood at the center of the baroque garden but was pulled down in 1799, it was sited on a small artificial island accessible by across a bridge, built to a matching Chinese design. The summerhouse was built by the court architect Andreas Kirkerup, like the rest of the buildings in the park it was a feature well known from the English garden; the summerhouse contained two cabinets, a kitchen and lavatory. The only window in the lavatory was made of red glass; the furniture consisted of copies of Chinese furniture as well as a set of genuine Chinese bamboo furniture acquired through the Asiatic Company.
Both the exterior and the interior has rich Chinese-inspired decorations, pictures and other ornaments, there were bells on the roof. Imitation bamboo was used in the ceilings; the Apis Temple is located on the border to Copenhagen Zoo. It was designed in the style of a Roman temple by the painter Nicolai Abildgaard and built in 1802, it is named for the Egyptian bull-deity Apis, depicted on the frontispice. The temple front consists of 10 columns of which 8 are recycled from a rebuilding of Moltke's Palace while the last 2 columns are replicas. Decorations include the Ox Cranium Frieze and the Bull Relief, both carved in sandstone. On the inside, the temple consists of a barrel vaulted room with two windows which had stained glass; the room was furnished with a sofa and console tables which the royalties could use for drinking tea. From 1874 to 1970, the temple was used as entrance to the Zoo, built in 1859, the décor changed; the temple is open for the public and has been used for art exhibitions.
Like the Apis Temple, the Swiss Cottage lies in the part of the park, incorporated when the park was redesigned in the Romantic style. Designed by Abildgaard and built between 1800 and 1801, the contains a hall, a cabinet and some smaller rooms in which the royal family could take coffee after dinner or a stroll in the garden. In 1894, the house was converted into a residence for the castle gardener, the interior was radically altered; the style has little
White Houses, Frederiksberg
The White Houses in the Frederiksberg district of Copenhagen, are a building society development built for workers at Frederiksberg Gasworks. It is located near Frederiksberg Gardens; the first gasworks in Frederiksberg opened in 1860 and was located at H. C. Ørsteds Vej. When the installation of gas in private homes became common in the 1890s, it was decided to build a new plant at Flintholm, which opened in 1895, it was located in rural surroundings a few kilometres outside town and with no public transport available, it prompted a wish for new residences for its workers, located closer to their new workplace. Frederiksberg Gasworks Workers' Building Society was founded in 1898 after an act adopted earlier that year provided for state loans for the construction of workers housing; the building society acquired a 4.5 hectare site at Peter Bangs Vej, just under one kilometre from Frederiksberg Gasworks. The architects Gotfred Tvede and Olaf Schmidth were charged with the design of the houses which were built in 1788 and 1900.
The development contained 194 dwellings as well as a building with retail space. Frederiksberg Workers' Building Society was dissolved in 1922 when the apartments were converted into private ownership; the development consists of seven detached houses. The design is based on a cubic volume where the length and height of roof ridge all measure 8.46 m. The semi-detached houses consist of two cubes put together. Gotfred Tvede and Olaf Schmidth created seven different designs for variation; the buildings are designed in a Neo-Baroque style locally known as palæstil, inspired by 18th-century Rococo mansions, popular in Denmark at the time. Common features are white-dressed facades, Mansard roofs with red tiles, gable dormers and small paned windows; the house owners are now organized in Vejlauget FAB. The houses are located on Peter Bangs Vej, Kronprinsensvej, Folkets Allé, Frihedsvej and Broderskabsvej.

Gammel Kongevej is the principal shopping street of Frederiksberg in Copenhagen, Denmark. Running parallel to Frederiksberg Allé and Vesterbrogade, it extends from Vesterport station at the southern end of The Lakes and continues for some 1.8 km west to Frederiksberg City Hall Square where it continues as Smallegade. In the opposite end, Jernbanegade connects it to Copenhagen City Hall Square. Gammel Kongevej is one of the oldest road sections in Frederiksberg providing a direct connection between Copenhagen's Western City Gate and the village of Solbjerg. From there the it continued past the Damhus Lake towards Roskilde, giving rise to the name Roskildegaden, seen in some documents from the beginning of the 17th century; the road was improved by Christian IV in the 1620s. The name Kongevejen emerged about a generation when it became the principal road to Ny Amager, as Frederiksberg was called, where the king had several properties; the name of the road changed to Gammel Kongevej after a new Route de Roie, Frederiksberg Allé, opened in 1705.
The road passed through open countryside with only a few scattered country houses until the mid-19th century when Copenhagen's fortifications were decommissioned and the city was allowed to develop freely. A number of new country houses were built along the rad but most of them were replaced by multi-story apartment buildings with shops in the ground floors in the 1880s and 1890s. P. Andersen opened the Svanholm Brewery at No. 64 in 1853. It was merged with several other breweries to form The United Breweries in 1891 and most of its buildings were replaced by a machine factory and iron factory. Part of the site was cleared in 1904–05 to make way for the new street Prinsesse Maries Allé; the rest of the industrial plant was replaced by the cinema complex Kinopalæet in 1918. Gammel Kongevej catered to the middle upper middle classes; the area next to the iron foundry was home to a small working-class neighbourhood with an infamous reputation. In the 1950s, Jørn Utzon, architect of the Sydney Opera House, drafted a project for the area, never built.
It consisted of tower blocks in a green space inspired by Japanese gardens. Dating from the 1850s, No. 78 is one of the oldest apartment buildings along the street. It has a fence towards the street; the Catholic school Ansgarstiftelsen at No. 15 is decorated with a mural byNiels Macholm mural, Just off Gammel Kongevej, between the streets H. C. Ørsteds Vej and Bülowsvej, is a small enclave, described as Denmark's first urban neighbourhood of single-family detached homes. It consists of the side streets Lindevej; the area around Sankt Jørgens Sø is home to a cluster of modern buildings which include the Tycho Brahe Planetarium and two highrises, Copenhagen Scandic Hotel and the 18-storey Codan Building.

Godthaab Church, Copenhagen
Godthaab Church is a Church of Denmark parish church situated on Nyelandsvej in the northern part of the Frederiksberg district of Copenhagen, Denmark. Godthaab Parish takes its name from the principal artery of the area. Godthaab Church traces its history back to 1866 when the charitable foundation Det Classenske Fideicommis acquired a 3 hectares piece of land at the site from the Sindshvile estate; this was done to build residences for indigent workers in the city after the 1853 Copenhagen cholera outbreak had highlighted the dismal living conditions for this part of the population. From 1866 to 1881 the foundation constructed 24 terraces with a total of 378 residences, they were built in yellow brick in two storeys to designs by Vilhelm Tvede. The development contained a community house, laundry, an orphanage and its own church, completed in 1880. At that point the development had 1,288 residents, a number which had increased to 1,655 in 1895; the Classen Terraces were praised and received attention abroad but as similar projects were built around the city, such as those of the Workers' Building Society, Det Classenske Fideicommis lost interest in the development.
Due to the charitable nature of the foundation, it showed great indulgence towards failure to pay rent and the development became a place for the poor and fell into neglect. This was in still stronger contrast to the surrounding community and in 1909 Frederiksberg Municipality bought the entire development to demolish it, although housing shortage and lack of economic restraints meant that the last terraces were not pulled down until the late 1950s. In connection with the sale, the foundation reserved a sum of DKK 70,000 for the construction of a new church on a lot donated for the project by H. I Nyeland, a well-to-do farmer. Godthåb Parish was created on 30 September 1909 and comprised the Classen Terraces as well as parts of Mariendal, St. Luke's and St. Thomas' parishes; the parish, like Godthåbsvej, was named after Store Godthaab, an estate which the entire area had once belonged to. Classen Church was used as a temporary parish church. Another DKK 55,000 was raised for the construction by a local church commission and Gotfred Tvede, the son of Vilhelm Tvede, was charged with the design of the new church building.
The foundation stone was set on 3 October by provost and Bishop of Zealand, Ostenfeld. The church was inaugurated on 19 March 1911; the church is built in red brick on a granite plinth. It is oriented north-south to fit the location at Nyelandsvej, it has a choir to the south and a tower with a copper-clad, octagonal belfry on the east side of the north gable. The interior has a barrel-vaulted ceiling with exposed timber structure. A series of round-arched windows on the west side provides natural light and the choir, raised three steps from the nave, is top lit. There is a gallery above the entrance in the north wall; the ceramic altartable is the work of Herman Kahler. The interior of the apse features a relief by the sculptor Carl Mortensen depicting Christ on the Cross, surrounded by worshipping angles. Official website
Møstings Hus is a small Neoclassical country house now used as an exhibition space in the Frederiksberg district of Copenhagen, Denmark. A pond lies in front of the building. Møsting's House dates from a time when Frederiksberg was the most popular place for wealthy Copenhageners to build their summer residences; the house was located at the corner of Smallegade and Falkoner Allé. It was built for Johan Sigismund von Møsting to a design by one of Caspar Frederik Harsdorff's students. Møsting succeeded Ernst von Schimmelmann in 1813 and was from 1814 he was a member of Gehejmestatsrådet. Møsting and his family spend their summers in the house until his death in 1843. In 1844, it was sold to decisor-general Georg Hermann Monrad. Most of the associated buildings were pulled down in 1901 while the main building was Class A listed following the adoption of the Danish Building Conservation Act in 1918. In 1924, Møsting's House was sold to a company that opened the Rialto Teatret cinema next to on 1 October that year.
In 1958, new owners opbtained permission to dismantle Møsting's House to build a larger cinema complex. It was a precondition that the house would be rebuilt in another location; this happened in 1977. The building's new address is Andebakkesti 5; the pond in front of the building is the former village pond of Solbjerg. Next to the house is a somewhat similar building from the same period, it now serves as residence for the ephor of Hassagers Kollegium. Møsting's House is today used as a venue for exhibitions and literary events. Official website Møstings Hus at arkitekturbilleder.dk Drawing in the Danish National Art Library
Peter Bangs Vej
Peter Bangs Vej is a 2.2 km long street in Frederiksberg, a city in the Copenhagen area on the island of Zealand, Denmark. The direct continuation of Smallegade, it runs west, from Nordre Fasanvej, but turns south along the east side of Damhus Lake to meet Roskildevej. There is a large sports complex on the south end of the street with the football club F. C. Copenhagen's training facilities as well as the multi-purpose venue K. B. Hallen. A field track referred to as Klammerivejen followed the same troute from at least 1755, it is older since documents from 1688 mentions "Clammerijs Agre". A popular but unverifiable explanation of the name is that the road was too narrow for two carriages to pass and that it was therefore liable to cause disputes; the track was the direct continuation of the Gammel Kongevej road which connected Copenhagen's Western City Gate to the village of Solbjerg, whose village pond can still be seen on the south side of Smallegade. The road received its current name on 8 October 1868.
It was named after the politician Peter Georg Bang who had died. The first major building along the road was Diakonissestiftelsen's hospital from 1876; the old West Line crossed the road just east of present-day Lindevangs Allé. Im 1914, the road was regulated and a tram line to Vanløse was inaugurated on 8 December that same year. Several large factories were built in the area between Peter Bangs Vej and Finsensvejin the 1900s and 1910s, such as Fisker & Nielsen's factory from 1913; the company both manufactured their Nilfisk vacuum cleaners and their Nimbus motorcycles at the site. Kjøbenhavns Boldklub, Copenhagen's first ball-plating club, acquired a 6 hectares site on the south side of Peter Bangs Vej in 1924; the club inaugurated a large new sports complex at the site on 10 April 1928. Diakonissestiftelsen's old main building is from opførtes 1876 and was designed by Hans Jørgen Holm in the style of a Medieval convent; the Deaconess Foundation has launched a 2020 plan for a comprehensive redevelopment of their site with residences as well as social and healthcare facilities.
The building Sarepta designed by Carl Lendorf and Teba, both from the 1880s and located on the other side of the street, were built of Diakonissestiftelsen. They have now been converted into the daycare Marthagården with a distinctive modern extension byLandager Arkitekter in 2013–14. To the rear of the two buildings stands the Postmodern, round headquarters of the Danish Union of Librarians, it was designed by Knud Munk. The White Houses, situated a little further out, is a building society development built for workers at Frederiksberg Gasworks in the 1890s; the architect was Getfred Tvede. Lindevang Church was designed by Thomas Havning and Anton Frederiksen. Fisker & Nielsen's former factory site was redeveloped between 2002 and 2008 and is now known as Nimnusparken, it contains a mixture of residential and commercial buildings and reuses some of the old industrial buildings. The Danish Association of Masters and PhDs is based in the building directly on the street. Jjøbenhavns Boldklub's extensive sports complex at Peter Bangs Vej is the primary training grounds of F.
C. Copenhagen; the site included the listed multi-purpose venue K. B. Hallen venue from 1938 but ir was destroyed in a fire in 2011. Christensen & Co has won a competition to build a new KB-Hallen to a new design inspired by the old building. Several green spaces are located along the street. Lindevangsparken is located just north of the park, it was created and 1932 and has an area of 33,000 square metres, making it the largest and oldest municipal park in Frederiksberg. The much larger and older Frederiksberg Park and Søndermarken are state-owned; the Damhus Lake and adjoining Damhus Meadow in Vanløse is located just west of the street. Peter Bangs Vej station is located on the Frederikssund radial of the S-train network and is served by the C trains. KB Hallen station is located on the Ring Line between Hellerup and Ny Ellebjerg and is served by F; the Inner Ring Route of Copenhagen's super bikeway network passes Diakonissestiftelsen]] on tis way from Emdrup to Valby.
