Forum Copenhagen is a large multi-purpose, rentable indoor arena located in Frederiksberg, Denmark. It hosts a large variety of concerts, markets and other events; the venue can hold up to 10,000 people depending on the event. The Forum operates as concert hall and indoor arena, it was opened in February 1926 to host a car exhibition and was last renovated in 1996–97. Over two storeys there is a combined exhibition floor area of 5,000 m² and a separate restaurant for up to 250 seated guests; the Metro station Forum is adjacent to the building. On 11 August 1925, the construction committee signed the contract to build the venue. On 25 September 1925, Prime Minister Thorvald Stauning laid the foundation stone for the construction. Forum opened for the first time on 20 February 1926 for this year's major automotive exhibition. Forum Copenhagen was designed by Oscar Gundlach-Pedersen, the lighting was from Poul Henningsen's brand new PH-lamp. In 1929 it held an architecture exhibition, one of the first presentations of functionalism in Denmark, namely the Housing and Building Exhibition in Forum.
It was at this exhibition that Arne Jacobsen and Flemming Lassen exhibited their subscription to the cylindrical "House of the Future". During World War II, the Danish resistance movement group Holger Danske destroyed the original hall in an act of sabotage in August 1943; the hall was first rebuilt and extended in 1947. An annual six-day bicycle race was held here and was moved to Ballerup Super Arena. In 1997, the Forum concluded an extensive renovation of the roof costing 70 million DKK, resulting in better acoustic sound and more concerts; the venue has hosted numerous music acts since its opening.

Porcelænshaven in the Frederiksberg district of Copenhagen, Denmark, is the former premises of the Royal Porcelain Manufactury, an industrial complex dating from the 1880s, converted into a mixed-use neighbourhood in the 2000s. Located on the corner of Søndre Fasanvej and Smallegade, adjacent to Frederiksberg Gardens, it has an area of about five hectares and consists of a mixture of dwellings, commercial space and premises for Copenhagen Business School, whose main campus is located nearby. Many of the historical buildings have been retained, including a landmark chimney and the listed director's residence from 1908. E. F. Nobel built a tobacco factory in the grounds in 1860 but Aluminia acquired the site in 1868 to build a new faience manufactury which opened in 1870. In 1882, Aluminia purchased the Royal Porcelain Factory, based in Købmagergade but in 1884 joined its new owner at their site in Frederiksberg; the original factory was designed by Valdemar Ingemann. The director's house was designed by J. E. Gnudtzmann.
In 1908. Anton Rosen designed a second direcvtor's residence in 1908 when the two companies get separate managements. Aluminia closed in 1969 while Royal Copenhagen continued to have their production at the site until 2004 when they moved to more modern facilities in Glostrup in the western suburbs of Copenhagen. Since most of the production has moved to Thailand. Sjælsø Group purchased the Frederiksberg site in 2002 when Royal Copenhagen first made the decision to move; the transformation of the area was completed in 2007. Porcelænshaven contains several minor greenspaces; the development has its own entrance to Frederiksberg Gardens. Since its foundation in 1882, many trees have been gifted and planted by prominent foreign guests during their visits to the porcelain facility; the local plan for the area stresses that some of the trees are in the two highest categories of preservation value and required the developers to move them to another location in the area if they could not remain in their original place.
As many of the old buildings as possible were preserved in connection with the redevelopment. Located next to the greenspace at the street corner, one of the old chimneys now serve as a visible landmark in the area. Another chimney have been retained in the rear of the area. A former residence for the managing director of the Royal Porcelain Manufactury was listed in 2004, it was built to a Neo-Baroque design by Anton Rosen in 1905 when two manufacturies got separate managements. In some of the old buildings, Royal Copenhagen maintains a factory outlet over two floors, it sells discontinued products at special prices.

Søndermarken is a park in Frederiksberg on the border to Valby and the Carlsberg area in Copenhagen, Denmark. It shares much of its history with Frederiksberg Gardens from which it is separated only by Roskildevej. Cisternerne—an underground venue for art exhibitions in the former cisterns—are located inside the park. Søndermarken was landscaped at the same time as Frederiksberg Gardens. Søndermarken features three underground cisterns which used to be part of Copenhagen's earliest water supply system. In 2001 they were converted into a museum for modern glass art, but since 2013 have been part of the Frederiksberg Museums, acting as a venue for art exhibitions, Cisternerne; the museum—located near Roskildevej, opposite the main entrance to the Copenhagen Zoo—is topped by two entrance pavilions and a fountain from 1890. The Memorial Mound is on a slope and was erected in 1925 to commemorate Danish immigration to America. In the 1920s, Danish-Americans in the United States conceived the idea to erect a memorial in Copenhagen as a counterpoint to the traditions surrounding Rebild Hills celebrations in Jutland.
A committee of Danish-Americans was set up which charged the sculptor Anders Bundgaard with the commission. After prolonged discussions, it was decided that the monument should be a mound, with an embellished inner chamber, placed in Søndermarken; the necessary funds were raised through a worldwide collection among expatriate Danes. Around $12,000 was collected and the monument was inaugurated in 1925 with a ceremony attended by 40,000 people, including the entire Danish royal family; the mound is 5 metres tall. It is reached along a narrow stone-lined passageway. Chiselled above the entrance is the inscription: "They who set out, never to return." At the top of the cupola is a metre-wide opening to let in daylight. At the centre of the room is the life-size figure of a woman who embraces her children, symbolizing Mother Denmark. Built into the wall are 9 bas-reliefs with symbolic descriptions of the emigrants’ lives and activities abroad. In the floor is a five-pointed star representing the five continents.
The memorial mound is open to the public every year on 4 July. There is a statue in the central reservation at each end of Norske Allé. At the zoo end stands a statue of Adam Oehlenschläger, one of the central persons of the Danish Golden Age, it is designed by Julius Schultz and was located at the site of the current Frederiksberg Town Hall Square and inaugurated on 24 October 1897. When the new Town Hall was built, the statue was moved to its current location in Søndermarken and placed on a new plinth, it now faces Frederiksberg Palace. At the other end of Norske Allé, near Carlsberg, stands a statue of the politician Carl Christian Hall, Danish prime minister from 1857 to 1859 and 1860 to 1863, it is designed by Vilhelm Bissen and was inaugurated on 15 September 1890.

Søndre and Nordre Fasanvej are two streets which form a long south--to-northnorth oriented artery through Frederiksberg, an independent municipality surrounded by larger Copenhagen Municipality in Copenhagen, Denmark. The southern part of the street is surrounded by large green spaces and attractive residential neighbourhoods while its northern part, which enters the Nørrebro and North-West districts of Copenhagen, is dominated by former industry; the street takes its name after a former royal pheasantry, in Frederiksberg Park. Søndre Fasanvej begins at Valby Langgade and continues along the western margin of Søndermarken and Frederiksberg Gardens to Smallegade, passing Roskildevej on the way, it continues as Nordre Fasanvej, passing several major arteries, including Nylandsvej, Godthåbsvej, Borups Allé and Hillerødgade, before reaching Frederikssundsvej. The oldest part of Søndre Fasanvej, north of Roskildevej, was established in 1682 as an access road to the royal pheasantry behind Frederiksberg Gardens.
The road was extended northwards to Smallegade. The southern part of present-day Søndre Fasanvej, between Valby Langgade and Roskildevej, was created in about 1870 as a driveway to a small cluster of nurseries, it was first known as Bag Søndermarken but was incorporated in Søndre Fasanvej in about 1900. Nordre Fasanvej was established between 1883 and 1908 as a direct extension of Søndre Fasanvej as the old part of the street was now called; the section north of Godthåbsvej]] was until 1920 called Østre Fasanvej. A new Frederiksberg Hospital was built at the street in 1903, replacing the old hospital at Howitzvej; the west side of Søndre Fasanvej, opposite the big parks, is dominated by areas of Single-family detached home, apartment buildings from the 1880s. Diakonissestiftelsen's development, located on the corner with Peter Bangs Vej, dates from the same time.

Åboulevard is a street in central Copenhagen, Denmark. Together with H. C. Andersens Boulevard in the city centre and Borups Allé, it forms a major artery in and out of the city; the road is built over Ladegårds Å, a canal built to supply Copenhagen with water, which still runs in a pipe under it, feeding water into Peblinge Lake. The canal was dug during the late Middle Ages to supply Copenhagen with drinking water from Damhus Lake and from about 1550 Lundehus Lake; the name Ladegårdså originates from Ladegården, a farm under Copenhagen Castle, located on the south bank of the stream where the Radio House is today. It was built in 1623 to provide produce for the royal household and feed for the royal mews but was never a success; the complex was converted into first a military hospice and a poorhouse with an associated textile manufactory. A road on the south side of the stream was called Ladegårdsvej while the north side was called Agade; the lower part of the stream, from Brohusgade to Peblinge Lake, was covered in 1897 to allow for an expansion of the road.
Agade was renamed Åboulevard. Ladegården was replaced by Sundholm on Amager. Ladegårdsvej disappeared in connection with an expansion of Åboulevard and the rest of the remainder of the stream was covered in 1942; the elevated road Åbuen was built in 1970–72, connecting Åboulevard to Borups Allé. The Functionalist apartment building Trekanten on the rounded corner of Åboulevard and Rosenørns Allé was designed by Kay Fisker. In collaboration with C. F. Møller, Fisker designed the neighbouring housing estate, which consists of two buildings surrounding a greenspace called Hermann Triers Plads; the bay windows are typical of his Functionalist style. The buildings were listed in 1981; the Bethlehem Church was designed by Peder Vilhelm Jensen-Klint and completed by his son Kaare Klint in 1937. The design resembles that of Jensen-Klint's most famous work, the monumental Grundtvig's Church in Bispebjerg. Åhusene is named for its patterned brickwork resembling old-fashioned linoleum flooring. The building was designed by Povl Baumann and completed in 1930.
It was listed in 2010. A pyramidical granite stone in the street side outside No. 16 commemorates an accident that occurred on the night between 26 and 27 November 1812 when a carriage with five women and a boy, on its way from the country house Rolighed into town, fell into the water at Ladegården. Two of the women drowned. Tradition had it that a pointed granite stone was installed in the water at the site of the accident to commemorate the event; the stone is an old water level marker. The stone used to have a no longer readable inscription reading "26–27 November 1812; when Ladegårds Å was filled to create the current Åboulevard, this memorial was installed between the trees on the boulevard at the site where it stood in the water". The artwork City Wall is designed by Morte Stræd and was installedin in connection with the creation of three new urban spaces between the Agade Cycle Bridge and Rantzausgade in 2011; the Agade Bicycle Bridge was installed in 2009 as part of the Nørrebro Route, a section of Copenhagen's network of super bikeways.
The super bikeway uses part of the alignment of the abandoned rail line between Nørrebro station and Copenhagen's second Central Station at Axeltorv on its way from Emdrup in the north to Valby in the south. It has been proposed to re-establish the Ladegårdså Canal by placing it on top of a 3-km long car tunnel; the project was put on hold in 2013. H. C. Ørsteds Vej
