Location in the
Vibrant Heart of Copenhagen
Hotel SKT. Annæ is located in the historical area of Frederiksstad, which encircles the Royal Palace Amalienborg. The hotel got its name from its residential street ‘Sankt Annæ Plads’. This plaza is a doubled one-way street, with a green recreational space in between. It is newly renovated and even though you are at the city center, this street is now a sanctuary from the busy streets around it.
The street entrance at Bredgade is marked by a bronze statue of King Christian X. He was the king of Denmark from 1912 until his death in 1947. This monument was established to honor his leadership and bringing the Danish people together during World War II.
At the other end of the street, the plaza opens up to a wooden bridge and Copenhagen Habour.
Running parallel right next to Sankt Annæ Plads is Nyhavn (New Harbour). This waterfront is dating back to the 17th-century and has a history of being an entertainment district especially for sailors docking in Copenhagen. Today it is still a popular area with many small restaurants overlooking the picturesque harbor. The canal is stretching from Kongens Nytorv square to Copenhagen Harbour with unique colorful houses along side. Where the canal ends, a bridge for pedestrians and bikes was recently established to connect downtown Copenhagen with the old outer bastions. This old military ground is now full of great culture and food experiences.
With this perfect and central location you will enjoy walking distances to many famous Copenhagen attractions, sights and shopping streets. Nearby attractions include Amalienborg, the Royal Danish Theatre, The Citadel of Frederiksstad, the shopping street ‘Strøget’ and The Little Mermaid statue.
Public transportation is also easily accessible. From Kongens Nytorv the Metro is running every other minute and key bus routes are close by.
