Artist's Description

Frederiksholms Canal.
One of Copenhagen’s many canals is Frederiksholms Canal. Along the right bank is Slotsholmen –
Slotsholmen (English: The Castle Islet) is an island in the harbour of Copenhagen, Denmark, and part of Copenhagen Inner City. Bishop Absalon constructed the city’s first castle on the island in 1166-67 at the site where Christiansborg Palace, the seat of the Danish Parliament lies today. Sometimes referred to as ‘the Island of Power’, Slotsholmen houses many of the central institutions of the country. Apart from the parliament these include the Supreme Court, the Prime Minister’s Office, the State Rooms of the Queen, the Ministry of Finance, and the historic buildings of the Christian IV’s Stock Exchange, the Chancellery and the Royal Library. The National Archive and several museums are also located on the island.
After the Assault on Copenhagen in 1659. It was at this very spot, where the city ramparts at that time was located, that the Swedish troops made their principal attack. After a series of defeats, the Danish troops finally gained victory, the Swedish troops leaving 2,000 dead soldiers in front of the ramparts at Stormgade wits is seen at the bottom of the photo.
Along the shore there is now some old lightship – they are now converted into houseboats used as residences.
