The northern street front of the Amagertorv (Amager Square), a central square in the danish capital Copenhagen (danish: København). It is named after the Amager farmers who came here to sell their products in the middle ages. Today Amagertorv is a part of the Strøget pedestrian area, a 1.1 km long shopping street connecting the Rådhuspladsen (City Hall Square) to the Kongens Nytorf (The Kings New Square). The Strøget is full of high street and brand stores, so we also see examples in this street front like Georg Jensen, the Disney Store, Louis Vuitton, the Royal Copenhagen flagship store (porcelain), Monsoon and the Illums department store on the right side corner and in one of the central buildings.
The most notable buildings are the Ole Haslunds Hus, a danish example of 19th century historicism and the Mathias Hansen House at No.6, which houses the Royal Copenhagen store. The latter is one of the oldest still existing buildings in Copenhagen and was built in 1616 for the later mayor Mathias Hansen. It is a typical dutch Renaissance style house with dutch gabels and a copper roof. Some of the copper drainpipes are decorated with dragons heads.
