Amaliehaven, Copenhagen

#12 of 29 in Parks in Copenhagen
Amaliehaven is a small park located between Amalienborg Palace and the waterfront in the Frederiksstaden neighbourhood of central Copenhagen, Denmark. A relatively new park, it was established in 1983 as a gift from the A.P. Møller and the Chastine McKinney Møller Foundation. The park is now part of the so-called Frederiksgade axis, the shorter but more distinctive of the two axes on which Frederiksstaden is centred.
Amaliehaven is located on a site where there used to be a shipyard established in 1802 by a wealthy ship-owner named Lars Larsen. The shipyard and its large lumberyard were situated right beside Amalienborg Palace and called “Larsen’s Plads” since 1821 its founder.
In 1870 the shipyard was closed and a new port terminal was established at the site in 1879 by the Thingvalla Line which began operations of a direct route between Scandinavian ports and America which was to offer the growing number of Scandinavian emigrants affordable, comfortable and safe voyages. In 1898 the Thingvalla Line was acquired by DFDS, another Danish based shipping company, and the Scandinavian-American passenger service was operated under the name Scandinavian America Line.
The route to America with Scandinavian America Line was discontinued in 1935 and the quay area was later taken over by the Oslo Ferries which started in 1866 and has since relocated to the Free Port Terminal further north.
