Denmark’s fifth largest city of Frederiksberg is situated on the island of Sealand and although it is its own city, it is situated only 3km from the centre of Copenhagen and is also a region within the capital city. Frederiksberg offers peace and quiet away from the hustle and bustle of central Copenhagen and there aresome lovely tourist attractions within the town such as the immpressive Frederiksberg Palace, Copenhagen Zoo as well as interesting streets and cosy cafés.
At the Frederiksberg Flea Market, situated right behind the Frederiksberg City Hall, you can go second-hand shopping for first rate items! The market is open every Saturday during the season.
Frederiksberg is traditionally an affluent area, and maybe that’s why many of the goods are of such high quality here. You will find many clothing items for adults and children as well as children’s toys, kitchenware, furniture, you name it. And while you’re there, treat yourself to one of those delicious Danish hotdogs from the hotdog stand or a beer and a glass of “Gammel Dansk” bitters from the beer tent.

Frederiksberg Palace (- Frederiksberg Slot – is a Baroque residence, located in Frederiksberg, Denmark, adjacent to the Copenhagen Zoo. It commands an impressive view over Frederiksberg Park, originally designed as a palace garden in the Baroque style. Constructed and extended from 1699 to 1735, the palace served as the royal family’s summer residence until the mid-19th century. Since 1869, it has housed the Royal Danish Army Officers Academy.
Frederiksberg Park -Frederiksberg Have- is one of the largest and most attractive greenspaces in Copenhagen, Denmark. Together with the adjacent Søndermarken it forms a green area of 64 hectares at the western edge of Inner Copenhagen. It is a romantic landscape garden designed in English style. Frederiksberg Park was laid out when Frederik IV provided for the construction of Frederiksberg Palace as the palace garden of his new summer retreat. It was first designed as a baroque garden but as fashion changed it was redesigned into an English landscape garden around 1800. The Palace garden was particularly used by Frederik VI who spend much time in the grounds and sailing the canals in a gondola. Though a palace park, the general public had access to the grounds but sailors, dogs and people in poor clothing or carrying large bundles were turned away by the guard at the parks sole entrance. Not until 1865 became access to the park unrestricted, in line with what was the case elsewhere in the city such as at Langelinie.
