Frederiksberg Tourist Sites
9. Solbjerg Church (Solbjerg Kirke) First built in 1908 by the architect Kristoffer Varming is a fairly typical Danish Lutheran church from the period. The church suffered a devastating fire in 1983, and the interior had to be completely rebuilt. Outside of the church is a police station from 1919 and a fire station from 1932, both built according to plans by architect Hack Kampmann.
10. City Hall (Rådhuset) Frederiksberg City Hall was built in 1953. Visitors are welcome to climb the stair to the top of the 60-meter-high tower to enjoy a great view over Frekeriskberg. In the main square stands sculptor Anker Hoffmann (1904-1985) fountain sculpture from 1960. Behind the town hall there is a large flea market every Saturday from April to October.
11. Denmark’s Radio Building (Radiohuset). The building was constructed in 1938-1945 by one of Denmark best known architects Vilhelm Lauritzen. It is considered to be one of Lauritzen’s best works, and it is considered to be one of the finest examples of Danish functionalism. The Radiohuset has a concert hall, which holds periodic concerts.
12. Agricultural College - Veterinary School (Landbohøjskolen - Veterinærskolen) was founded in 1773 in Christianshavn, but moved to Frederiksberg in 1859 after a large complex of buildings were completed. The original architecture was done by another famous Danish architect M.G. Bindesbøll. The complex was expanded in the 1890’s in order to fulfill growing demands for space. The beautiful gardens and parks surrounding the building is one of the city's small oases.

15. The Royal Horticultural Society Garden (Det Kongelige Haveselskabs Have). This royal garden was originally laid out in 1884 with flower beds and many winding paths. Fundamentally it is a part of Frederiksberg Palace, however it gives visitors a sense of how the original garden would have appeared. In the summertime the royal garden has regular outdoor concerts.
16. Danish Entertainment Museum (Det Danske Revy Museum) Inside the beautiful yellow-washed building near the entrance to Frederiksberg Park is the Danish Entertainment Museum. The museum contains a unique collection of costumes, posters, original lyrics, film clips and music from the dawn of the modern Danish entertainment industry.
