Probable change in Copenhagen apartment

In just over 10 days we’ll be in Denmark. I just found out today that there will probably be a change in plans for our apartment. We were planning on staying in Norrebro, as previously mentioned. Now it looks like we’ll be staying in a slightly larger place closer to where I will be working in Frederiksberg.

The building looks just as nice, if not nicer than the other one. The green courtyard is missing, but we are still a block or two from the reservoir. We’ll now be on the southern end of it instead of near the middle of the reservoir. We are closer to Tivoli.

My guide book isn’t as enthusiastic about Frederiksberg. “Frederiksberg was a green, prosperous country village that became increasingly popular as the upper and middle classes began to revel in the countryside in the 18th century. It is now a tranquil, upmarket residential area…”

We will be close to the Tycho Brahe Planetarium which I look forward to visiting. We will be a short bike ride to Norrebro as well. The Forum is a block away, but nothing is on the their calendar while we are there. We’ll probably catch Chris Cornell at Vega though.

My other guide book is a little more positive stating, “Leafy, stately Frederiksberg begins further west at Frederiksberg Alle. This broad, tree-lined avenue is lined with fin de siecle apartment blocks some of the most desirable in the city. It finishes at Frederiksberg Have, the city’s most romantic park, with a boating lake, rolling lawns and, looking down from the hill, Frederiksberg Slot and Copenhagen Zoo.”

In the above image I’m trying to get my bearings. #1 is where our first apartment was going to be. The blue dot is our probable new location. CBS (Copenhagen Business School) is where I will be teaching. T is for Tivoli. K is for Kastellet.
