How to get to Frederiksberg Town hall?

The story behind
Frederiksberg’s first town hall was in Falkoner Allé, one block to the north of the current town hall square. As the population boomed in the first part of the 20th century, it became too small to house a modern administration. It was therefore decided to build a new town hall and Henning Hansen was charged with its design. Construction of the new town hall began in 1942 but was delayed by shortage of building materials during World War II. After Henning Hansen’s death in 1945, Carl H. Nimb and Helge Holm took over the responsibility for completing his building. It was inaugurated in 1952.
