went to the copenhagen city museum in the very fun neighborhood of vesterbro today with some friends…the museum was an urban designer/planner’s paradise for information about the city, and it had lots of models, including ‘the model city,’ above (no indoor photos for me today). here’s the excerpt from the københavns bymuseum site about the outdoor model:

“When you visit the Museum of Copenhagen you are welcomed by a model of medieval Copenhagen. The model, which was created in the 1940s, is the oldest outdoor city model in Scandinavia. The model depicts Copenhagen around 1530, that is in Catholic times, and therefore the city is characterized by many churches and monasteries. Recently the model city has been thoroughly restored.”
