Lovely, Old, Yellow Terrace Houses
Østervoldgade & Store Kongensgade
Nyboder was built as a residential area for the people of the Danish Navy in the 1630s, commissioned by King Christian IV. The terrace houses have been rebuilt many times, but some of the first buildings are still standing in their original, characteristic style. Today, the houses are inhabited by military people, even though a lot of pilots and seamen will have to bend their heads several times a day because of the low door-frames. The area is most beautiful in the evening when the sun is shining. At a moment like that, this whole area is unique and idyllic. Beautiful things about the Nyboder houses are their yellow colour and the infinite repetitions. The slanted gables and the small windows and doors are very charming.
