Description

Dronning Louise's Bro (Queen Louise's Bridge) connects inner Copenhagen and Nørrebro and is frequented by tons of cyclists and pedestrians every single day. However, the bridge has also become an unusally popular hangout.

Queen Louise's Bridges was built in 1887 and went through a bit of a transformation when the road was narrowed in favour of wider sidewalks and bike paths.

This resulted in significantly reduced car traffic and increased bicycle traffic.

The transformation did not only affect cars and bikes, because wider sidewalks also turned the sunny side of Queen Louise's Bridge into a hip and popular hangout for many Copenhageners.

The bridge ended up getting more benches than originally planned due to people's need to soak up the sun and hang out on the bridge.
