Sankt Peder Stræde is a street in central Copenhagen, Denmark. It runs from Nørregade to Jarmers Plads, crossing Larsbjørnsstræde, Teglgårdsstræde and Larslejsstræde on the way. The eponymous St. Peter's Church is located at the beginning of the street, on the corner with Nørregade. Most of its other buildings date from the years after the Copenhagen Fire of 1795. Part of Copenhagen's Latin Quarter, the street is home to several well-known restaurants and shops.Plan your visit to Peders and a wealth of other attractions, well-known and undiscovered, using our Copenhagen visit app.
Sankt Peder Stræde takes its name after St. Peter's Church, which is first mentioned in 1304. In 1497 the Carmelite priory in Helsingør purchased a property in the street to use it a "college" where the brothers could live and lecture. It had connections with the University of Copenhagen which was then located on the corner of Studiestræde and Nørregade. The Carmelite college was shut down after the Reformation.
The street was almost completely destroyed in the Copenhagen Fire of 1795. The houses in the street were subsequently rebuilt. The residents were mainly minor merchants and craftsmen. Copenhagen's Western Rampart was located at the far end of the street until the second half of the 19th century. A pedestrian bridge, Teglgårdsbroen, was constructed across the City Moat in 1855. It disappeared in 1874.
