  • Along Saltholms Canal starting as street at Højbro Plads and empties at a park at Nybrogade and right next to the Ministry of culture. In the old days until 1958 there were even squares trade in fish and fish-wives came from skovshoved and headed to Old Beach each morning to sell them for the same reason døbtes. the skovser wives. The stalls were open, and it was a cold place in winter. Good warm clothing was important to wear during the sale. You might know skovser wives by their characteristic white headgear, and they stopped the dress with newspapers to isolate. The artist Charles svejstrup M has created the statue The last fisherman's wife in the middle of the square in memory of them, and the statue was erected on 12. November 1940. When we were in the area during our vacation in mid-december the statue was wrapped up and was not visible. We assume that this is due to the construction of the future City Circle line metro-line.
