Copenhagen Norregade

I took the bus today
to here
snaps: norreport

This was Dælls Warehouse

and the little tree blogged in
snaps: Rådhusplads København

is in the dorway to the shop

the upper floors are now

Hotel Skt. Petri
København K.
270 beds

This since 1585 is the german church of Saint Peter

Sct Petri Kirke
with newly patched brickwork

W. Sauer organ is from 1838

Orgelbau Frankfurt (Oder) GmbH

The copper clad wooden spire from 1757 appears to rest on golden balls, and it used to be believed that a storm might blow it off them

Through the porte is the oldest natural history museum and a quiet yard to eat sandwiches in
warmer weather

Copenhagen University to the left,
the churchyard wall is partly from the seventeenth century

In 1807 the gothic cathedral of Our Lady was destroyed by the english fleet

You can still see some english cannon balls, and a double ball bar-shot designed to cut the rigging of sailing ships
This house was built after the fire of 1728 between 1730 - 1732 by the master copper smith kobbersmedmester Poul Badstubber and survived the english attack

the new cathedral

by C.F.Hansen

was consecrated in 1829

Vor Frue Kirke


81165 København K

Vilhelm Bissen's statue of Moses has a beard like mine

and my kind of bookshop Atheneum

has had no time for Xmas decorations yet
