Viktoriagade is a street in the Vesterbro district of Copenhagen, Denmark. It runs from Vesterbrogade in the northwest to Halmtorvet in the southeast and is intersected by Istedgade; the three buildings at No. 8-12 have been listed on the Danish registry of protected places. In the 1620s a fortification known as Retrenchementet was constructed at the site by Christian IV. In front of the rampart ran a moat known as Rosenåen; the area came under redevelopment in the 1950s. Two large lots adjacent to the planned street Gasværksvej were sold to carpenter and developer Jensen, he sold them to the trading house Larsen og Co. in 1854. The company wanted an access road directly to Vesterbrogade and the city engineer's office wanted to get rid of Rosenåen which had developed into an open sewer. Viktoriagade was therefore established on top of the former moat; the land along the street was sold off in lots from 1856. A number of the early buildings in the new street were built as charitable housing complexes.
Skrædernes Stiftelse was built for old tailors in circa 1858. J. V. Heymans Stiftelse for officers' widows was founded in 1869 at the initiative of J. V. Heyman; the building had been completed in 1868 and contained five residents for widows as well as a residence for the inspector. The building was demolished in 1895. Viktoriagade No. 8, No. 10 and No. 12 are listed in the Danish registry of protected places. Konferensråd J. H. Mundts Stiftelse is fom 1863. No. 16 and No. 14 were designed by Vilhelm Friederichsen. At the pointed corner of Viktoriagade and Abel Cathrines Gade stands a large heart in black corten steel, it was designed by Fin Christiansen and installed in 2000. Helgolandsgade
Halmtorvet is a public square in the Vesterbro district of Copenhagen, Denmark. It is located next to Copenhagen Central Station in front of the Meat District; the oblong square turns into Sønder Boulevard, a broad street with a park strip in its central reserve, which continues to Enghavevej at Enghave station. Copenhagen's haymarket was located just inside the Western City Gate where the City Hall Square lies today, it closed on 1 January 1888 and relocated to the area outside the new Livestock Market which had opened at the site in 1879. Market days were Wednesday and Saturday and up to several hundred loads of hay and straw were traded and distributed to cattle and horse stables around the city. Up through the 20th century, with improved infrastructure, livestock moved out of the city and horses lost their role in transportation, the haymarket closed; the area became associated with prostitution and drug dealing. The site was dominated by through traffic and goods transport; the area underwent gradual gentrification up through the 1990s and Halmtorvet was refurbished from 1999 to 2003 as part of a major programme for urban renewal in the Vesterbro area.
The first stage was designed by the office of the City Architect and completed in 2000. The second and third stages were designed by the Park Office of the City and carried out in 2003. In order to obtain a coherent space in the area a large gas regulator in front of the Brown Meat District was removed; the square has an oblong shape. To make the space more attractive to urban life, the new layout introduced one-way traffic, taken along a single lane on the south side of the square. A roundabout on the corner of the Brown Meat District, distributes traffic south and north of the Central Station. In the centre of the square, in front of Øksnehallen, there is an oval pool surrounded by large open spaces and playgrounds. Other areas have elevated flower beds with terraced sides. Other elements in the refurbishment include new paving and items of street furniture; the north side of the square is lined with residential buildings from the 1890s. The building between Lille Istedgade and Abel Cathrine Gade was built from 1897 to 1898 to the design of Emil Blichfeldt who has designed the main entrance of Tivoli Gardens on the other side of the Central Station.
Built in 1961, Borgenhus, at No. 20, is the only building in Inner Vesterbro under City Plan West, a municipal plan from 1958 for condemnations and urban renewal in the area. The south side of the square, from the roundabout up to the beginning of Sønder Boulevard, borders on the Meat Packing District; the original meat market was planned and designed by Hans Jørgen Holm in 1878 but over the years new buildings were added to the design of other architects, including Øksnehallen by Ludvig Fenger in 1901. The section closest to the Central Station is known as the Brown Meat District, it is the older part and dates from about 1900. The section closest to Sønder Boulevard is known as the White Meat District and was built in the first half of the 1930s to the design of City Architect Poul Holsøe. Halmtorvet 29 is the former headquarters of Alfred Benzon A/S. Halmtorvet is now lined on either side by restaurants. Part of the Brown Meat District, Øksnehallen at No. 11, a former market building, now serves as an exhibition venue which houses a broad variety of events and flea markets.
Husets Teater is a small studio theatre based in another building of the Brown Meat District. Borgenhus, the modern building at No. 20, houses Station City, the Copenhagen Police Department's police station for the city centre
Hotel Astoria (Copenhagen)
Hotel Astoria is a design hotel located next to the Central Station in Copenhagen, Denmark. The building is an early example of Functionalist architecture in Denmark; the building was designed as a station hotel for the Danish State Railways by Ole Falkentorp, who had started his career in the State Railways' design office before forming his own practice. The hotel was built from 1934 to 1935 as the first luxury hotel in Copenhagen. In 2007, Hotel Astoria was taken over by DGI-byen; the new owner commissioned GUBI to redesign the interior while preserving many of the original features. The revolving doors, the first in Denmark, are still present at the main entrance, one of the luxury rooms has been maintained as it was in 1935. Relying on black and white set off by tones of deep purple and greyish blue, a new colour scheme has been selected and the building has been fitted out with artistically designed, custom-made furniture. On 1 July 2011 the hotel was taken over by Zleep Hotels. On 1 January 2014, Brøchner Hotels took over management of the hotel.
The hotel consists of a long slender wing forming a barrier between the courtyard in front of the main entrance to the Central Station, which opens to the underground rail lines, Reventlowsgade, the street on the Vesterbro side of the station. An example of architecture parlante, the building is intended to resemble a steam locomotive, with its connotations of travel and movement encapsulating the essence of the site, as an expression of the fascination with progress and technology, typical of the time, it consists of an expressive constellation of cubist volumes, culminating in the narrow facade looking out over Vesterbrogade, topped by a "hood ornament" in the shape of a winged wheel bearing a crown, a sculptural representation of the old logo of the Danish State Railways. The vertical, exterior hotel sign is in the full height of the building. At the other end of the building, there is a cylindrical staircase tower with a helical window. Great care was taken by E. Schmidt, the technical designer, in drawing up the detailed specifications for a building, to be constructed using Asger Skovgaard Ostenfeld's developed deformation technique for reinforced concrete structures.
The finish on the four-inch-thick walls with metal-framed windows was achieved by manual bush hammering. The hotel has been an inspiration for Peter Clash's design of the RIBA Award-winning Sleeperz Hotel in Cardiff, Wales.

The Dipylon, or the Double Gate, is a landmark structure which spans Ny Carlsberg Vej in the Carlsberg area of Copenhagen, Denmark. Part of the now decommissioned Carlsberg Brewery site, it combines a double-arched gateway, from which it takes its name, with a clock tower; the name which means "double gate" in Greek, refers to a gateway in the north-west of ancient Athens. Designed by Vilhelm Dahlerup, the Dipylon structure was built in 1892, at a time when the Ny Carlsberg complex was still under redevelopment and far from finished; the gateway of the lower part marked the Vesterbro-side entrance to the Ny Carlsberg complex, complementing the Elephant Gate to the west which afforded access to the brewery from the Valby side. Above the gateway, the building contained two malting floors. Through two valves, one in each arch, malt mash could be poured into waiting wagons; the Dipylon building is built in red brick in the ornate Historicist style, typical both of the Carlsberg area in general and of Vilhelm Dahlerup's work.
The arches have granite rustication. Above them there is a diagonal pattern in red tiles. On the front side of the building, an integrated sign above the arches reads "Ny Carlsberg". Placed on the rear side of the structure, there is a plate, inscribed with a quotation from J. C. Jacobsen's will, adopted by Carl Jacobsen as a motto: In the brewery's operations, a constant goal, regardless of immediate gain, should be to develop the art of making beer to the greatest possible degree of perfection so that the brewery and its products may serve as a model and, by their example, assist in keeping beer brewing in this country at a high and honourable level. On the rear side of the gate building, a frieze consisting of nine tile paintings depicts various key figures in the construction and operation of brewery. In the centre stands Carl Jacobsen, flanked by his wife and his son Alf, the chosen heir but died in 1890 shortly before the building was completed; the other figures are Carl’s closest collaborators in building the brewery, Vilhelm Dahlerup and master builder S. P. Beckmann, representing the brewery’s employees, Professor Christian Grønlund, office manager R. Hesberg, chief inspector V. Henningsen, an ordinary brewery worker.
On the upper part of the building, there is a double-faced clock. Its roof-top bell is flanked by a group statue by Stephan Sinding. Ny Carlsberg Glyptotek Jesus Church, Valby Official website the Carlsberg area
Copenhagen is the capital and most populous city of Denmark. As of July 2018, the city has a population of 777,218, it forms the core of the wider urban area of the Copenhagen metropolitan area. Copenhagen is situated on the eastern coast of the island of Zealand; the Øresund Bridge connects the two cities by road. A Viking fishing village established in the 10th century in the vicinity of what is now Gammel Strand, Copenhagen became the capital of Denmark in the early 15th century. Beginning in the 17th century it consolidated its position as a regional centre of power with its institutions and armed forces. After suffering from the effects of plague and fire in the 18th century, the city underwent a period of redevelopment; this included construction of the prestigious district of Frederiksstaden and founding of such cultural institutions as the Royal Theatre and the Royal Academy of Fine Arts. After further disasters in the early 19th century when Horatio Nelson attacked the Dano-Norwegian fleet and bombarded the city, rebuilding during the Danish Golden Age brought a Neoclassical look to Copenhagen's architecture.
Following the Second World War, the Finger Plan fostered the development of housing and businesses along the five urban railway routes stretching out from the city centre. Since the turn of the 21st century, Copenhagen has seen strong urban and cultural development, facilitated by investment in its institutions and infrastructure; the city is the cultural and governmental centre of Denmark. Copenhagen's economy has seen rapid developments in the service sector through initiatives in information technology and clean technology. Since the completion of the Øresund Bridge, Copenhagen has become integrated with the Swedish province of Scania and its largest city, Malmö, forming the Øresund Region. With a number of bridges connecting the various districts, the cityscape is characterised by parks and waterfronts. Copenhagen's landmarks such as Tivoli Gardens, The Little Mermaid statue, the Amalienborg and Christiansborg palaces, Rosenborg Castle Gardens, Frederik's Church, many museums and nightclubs are significant tourist attractions.
The largest lake of Denmark, Arresø, lies around 27 miles northwest of the City Hall Square. Copenhagen is home to the University of Copenhagen, the Technical University of Denmark, Copenhagen Business School and the IT University of Copenhagen; the University of Copenhagen, founded in 1479, is the oldest university in Denmark. Copenhagen is home to the FC Brøndby football clubs; the annual Copenhagen Marathon was established in 1980. Copenhagen is one of the most bicycle-friendly cities in the world; the Copenhagen Metro launched in 2002 serves central Copenhagen while the Copenhagen S-train, the Lokaltog and the Coast Line network serves and connects central Copenhagen to outlying boroughs. To relieve traffic congestion, the Fehmarn Belt Fixed Link road and rail construction is planned, because the narrow 9-9.5 mile isthmus between Roskilde Fjord and Køge Bugt forms a traffic bottleneck. The Copenhagen-Ringsted Line will relieve traffic congestion in the corridor between Roskilde and Copenhagen.
Serving two million passengers a month, Copenhagen Airport, Kastrup, is the busiest airport in the Nordic countries. Copenhagen's name reflects its origin as a place of commerce; the original designation in Old Norse, from which Danish descends, was Kaupmannahǫfn, meaning "merchants' harbour". By the time Old Danish was spoken, the capital was called Køpmannæhafn, with the current name deriving from centuries of subsequent regular sound change. An exact English equivalent would be "chapman's haven". However, the English term for the city was adapted from Kopenhagen. Although the earliest historical records of Copenhagen are from the end of the 12th century, recent archaeological finds in connection with work on the city's metropolitan rail system revealed the remains of a large merchant's mansion near today's Kongens Nytorv from c. 1020. Excavations in Pilestræde have led to the discovery of a well from the late 12th century; the remains of an ancient church, with graves dating to the 11th century, have been unearthed near where Strøget meets Rådhuspladsen.
These finds indicate. Substantial discoveries of flint tools in the area provide evidence of human settlements dating to the Stone Age. Many historians believe the town dates to the late Viking Age, was founded by Sweyn I Forkbeard; the natural harbour and good herring stocks seem to have attracted fishermen and merchants to the area on a seasonal basis from the 11th century and more permanently in the 13th century. The first habitations were centred on Gammel Strand in the 11thcentury or earlier; the earliest written mention of the town was in the 12th century when Saxo Grammaticus in Gesta Danorum referred to it as Portus
