Nytorv is a square in Copenhagens city centre, and located directly to the opposite of the square called “Gammeltorv”.
Both squares are divided from each other by the Stroget shopping street, and the Caritas fountain.

Justice was always a very important topic on this square. There is a courthouse which was built in the beginning of the 19th century. In former times Nytorv was also the location of executions by a scaffold.
Don’t expect to find fancy shops or coffee houses around the square. Nytorv is a bit boring in this regard.
