City Hall Square (Danish: Rådhuspladsen, pronounced [ˈʁʌðhusˌpʰlæsn̩]) is a public square in the centre of Copenhagen, Denmark, located in front of the Copenhagen City Hall. Its large size, its central location and its affiliation with the city hall make it a popular venue for a variety of events, celebrations and demonstrations. It is often used as a central point for measuring distances from Copenhagen.
City Hall Square is located at the southwestern end of the pedestrian street Strøget which connects it to Kongens Nytorv, the other large square of the city centre, passing Gammeltorv/Nytorv and Amagertorv along the way. Opposite Strøget, Vesterbrogade extends into the Vesterbro district and later crosses the border to Frederiksberg. H. C. Andersens Boulevard, Copenhagen’s most heavily congested street, and Vester Voldgade pass the square on either side of the city hall.

As early as January 1940, the ‘Great Copenhagen Committee on protection against the danger of air’ decided to build shelters around the town’s parks and squares, where many people were often gathered. Since then, the “negro huts” were added to Town Hall Square and Kgs. Nytorv.
Yes, people called them »negerhytterne« (“negro huts”).
