Looking out to Østerbro

Østerbro, slightly northeast of Nørrebro, has remained an uncluttered and suburban residential area since the 19th century. The train station, Østerport, was built in 1894–97 to help workers travel to the city centre, on the site of Copenhagen’s fortified eastern gate.

This photograph was taken from the Rundetårn and shows Rikshospitalet and Fælledparken on the horison and the Botanical Gardens in the middle-ground.
