Water spout

On a building in Frederiksberg Allé this strange water spout can be found. It's on a building called Sans Souci, a building build in the beginning of the 20th Century. The name is older though; here was a country home build in 1798 by master builder J M Quist who gave it the name of Sans Souci. A nearby restaurant also keeps the name alive.

Frederiksberg Allé have been called the Champs Elysees of Copenhagen, and the avenue do bear a kind of resemblance with that great place; tall trees line the strait broad street and the buildings from 1900 are rather nice. It's a fashionable (and expensive) address to have, but it's got very few shops, very little traffic and only a couple of café's to visit. Champs Elysees it's not, but I think it's a nice street anyway.
