The ‘Dutch Quarter in Copenhagen was created by the Friesian town planner Johan Semp, who was summoned to Denmark in 1616 by King Christian IV. The King’s grand plans envisaged an independent market town where trade would flourish. Semp reclaimed land and laid out streets, squares and plots for merchant’s houses, creating the quarter that came to be known as Christianshavn.
The street called Strandgade in Christianshavn still shows how the original merchant’s houses were built of brick and decorated with fine sandstone details. The finest gate on the street stands in front of the house of Admiral Cort Sivertsen Adeler.
