I have a bit of a curious question.
Does anyone have knowledge (beyond wikipedia) about the English Bombardment of Copenhagen in 1807?

From wiki. :
"The British fired 5,000 rounds into Copenhagen on the first night of bombardment, 2,000 rounds into the city on the second night, and 7,000 rounds on the third night. More than 2,000 civilians were killed and 30% of the buildings were destroyed during the battle. The bombardment had included Congreve Rockets, which caused fires."

I love the old Renaissance style of Denmark, particularly the Borsen building, and I have always wondered if there were other similar buildings that have been lost through time, particularly after what happened in 1807.

I'm certainly no expert on the field but as such I don't think neither the bombardment nor the fire some centuries prior to it would have destoyed many Renaissance buildings - while those two events combined damaged some 60% of the buildings in the city it would mostly have been the dense tudor buildings in high desity residential parts, where the renaissance buildings were usually public ones belonging to either the state or the royal family and often located at a distance to other buildings and surrounded by garden, park or square..

And with the city defenses it would have been very hard for the British to target any such with direct cannon fire, so while I don't know for certain I would expect damage to only be very light on such buildings..
And with the value of them and symbolism I think restoration would have been of high importance almost no matter how damaged..

Apperently it was a 'Hans van Steenwinckel' who designed Børsen and when looking at his other works they are still there around the city..

If you like the Danish renaissance style you might want to give my other thread a go - it's Denmark outside of Copenhagen, with multiple castles in that style including Steenwinckel's Kronborg ( "home of Hamlet" ) and my own favorite Hillerød Slot

You can find the thread here: http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showthread.php?t=612287

As for buildings of the past you could try to give the 'Nordic & Baltic Skybar' a chance - there is a lot of bright minds there with a lot of knowledge who might be able to help..

Unfortunately many beautiful renaissance buildings have been destroyed or lost through time in Copenhagen, and there aren't really that many left. There are a few, most of them recontructions after the british bombardment, but not at all in the same scale and beauty as they once were... I have seen paintings from the 1600 of several old squares in Copenhagen and I can tell from those paintings that Copenhagen had a lot more renaissance buildings.
I hope that answered your question...

FREKI, dancle,

Thank you for the helpful information. Hillerød Slot is also a favorite of mine.
dancle, would you know the name of the paintings or artists of those 1600-era images?

The limited history of the battle I found on the internet say that the British were trying force Copenhagen to surrender their navy and other armaments to prevent them from falling into the hands of Napolean.
I am tempted to feel that it was meant as a display of power, to impress and intimidate the French, much in the same way many people theorize that non-strategic Dresden was destroyed during WWII simply to impress the Soviets.
The use of Congreve rockets are a particularly disturbing aspect of the 1807 bombardment. It really seems as if the British were trying to create a firestorm, which probably would have killed three times as many had they succeeded.

The following images are taken from both wikimedia and climate4you.com :

dancle,

A vibrant, beautiful painting. You can clearly see the Renaissance details on the buildings in the center as well as on a couple of facades on the right. I especially love the dragon head water spouts on the roof-line of the building standing to the upper left, and how just below them the artist included the quaint detail of a curtain billowing outward, which is probably what happened as he was painting this.
Thank you for posting this.

Yeah it's a very beautiful painting. It's just that I have seen even better examples of renaissance architecture in Copenhagen (paintings).. Today at this square there are a few reconstructions of old danish renaissance buildings..

Here's the square (picture by no other than my countryman FREKI)



It's not impossible to find these buildings in Copenhagen, notice the building in the middle (picture also by FREKI)



And not to forget Rosenborg Castle (picture from flickr)

And time for part 2..

This time we visited Sydhavnen and the new residential and commercial stuff going up there..

And I gotta say I was very impressed by the residentail stuff - I could easily see myself moving there in a few years when more of the stuff there have been completed..

We also took a walk in the large nature area Fællen and finished off at Islands Brygge and took a look over the city from Fisketorvet Mall's roof..
