But on a sunny Tuesday opened Copenhagen's mayor, Frank Jensen, then the west corner, where the new metro station should be.

Photo city hall reopens: So much has changed

Here is the 49 newly planted trees surrounded by the copenhagen benches, where many people had set out to take the sun's rays.

Nancy and Ann Britt, who did not know each other, were suddenly and talked together under a tree on the busy place.

- It is a great opening day, and the sun is shining. It is almost like a kyssebænk, laughed Ann Britt Andersen, who was born in Gothenburg, but if the parents were married at the town hall in 1950.

Nancy and Ann Britt Andersen met on the 'kyssebænken', as Ann Britt Andersen called the.

Bjarne had at detours heard about the opening of the site from a friend, and now he was excited for the square, the sun and the company.

- It is so fortunate that you can now sit and talk together, even though we do not know each other. It is great to come in here and sit, told Bjarne, who had made the trip from Ballarat.

this is How it looks from the top.

Shortly after Frank Jensen, opened the cycle path, was the wild copenhagen cyclists through the double track bike path that meanders across the square. Here kept the buses in the past, and in the old days came the trams rolling past.

- It is fat with a cycle path, so I can get easier through the city to work, he says.

probably The wildest cyclist was Julie Iwinski, who chose to overlook the barrier and run down the old bike path. It ended with that she poured out over the curb, when she was surprised by the cyclists, who came from the other side. Her 'airbag'-cykelhjem took fortunately the fall, but when the first is tripped, does it cost her 2000 dollars.

It was not only the sheer joy at the inauguration. Julie Iwinski smoke on the tarmac after she took the old and separate cycle path. Photo: Linda Johansen.

- I am good enough tired of it. I had not seen, that there was come a new cycle path, or that they had blocked off the old one. They could well have done better, before they opened it, " says Julie Iwinski, there in addition to topple with the bike was also sick.

The junction of the bike path is equipped with a red stop sign and solid line.

Before the construction of the metro was the black HT-bus terminal, which many felt was a øjebæ, on the square. The buses now need to hold out for the Tivoli and next to H. C Andersen's Boulevard.

How so øjebæen out. One of them, Ekstra Bladet met at the square, remember the bus terminal as 'some of the ugliest'.

the Area becomes the main entrance to the metro station, which will link town hall square with the Old Beach and the main train station.

Until the opening of the city ring, is scheduled for end-July, will the square still be characterized by the construction activity. Next, the entire space given back to the danes, who since the town hall construction in 1905 stimlet together at festive occasions and rallies in the square.

Mayor Frank Jensen opened the cycle path and was in this respect happy to get the city back.

- We are many who have rejoiced to get the city back after several years of metro construction. At the same time, we recreated the city's many fine and historic places that have been tucked away behind byggepladshegn, says Copenhagen's mayor, Frank Jensen (S), in connection with the inauguration of the bike path.

The newly planted trees on the town hall square is robinie, spidsløn, japanese rowan, vandgran and red horse chestnut. In addition to the trees and the historic københavnerbænke will city hall be equipped with stairs and elevators down to the next underground station.

the Copenhagen technology and environment mayor, Ninna Hedeager (EL), is pleased to give the square back into a more green version:

- the Bus is now past and has been replaced by a small, green oasis to the heart of the city with almost three times as many trees as in the past.

the Seats around the remaining 17 stations become largely, as before metrobyggeriet went in once, but in several places there will be planted more trees.
