The history of Rigshospitalet goes back 250 years to Denmark's first real hospital, ”Det kongelige Frederiks Hospital”, which was established to treat and care free of charge for impoverished patients in Copenhagen.
The hospital opened in 1757 and was located in Bredgade in the building where the Museum of Art and Design is today.
In 1910 the hospital was handed over to the state and moved to its current location. It also changed its name to Rigshospitalet, as from this date the hospital was to be open to all citizens of the Danish Realm.
The modern Rigshospital, with its tall grey buildings, is from the 1960s and today it is part of the Capital Region of Denmark. 
Rigshospitalet merged with Glostrup Hospital with effect from 1st January 2015.

Buildings and landmarks


Copenhagen's Nyhaven, or "New Harbor," is actually steeped in a long heritage. Colorful buildings line the canal and hint at a history of small-vessel traffic. Like many ports, this strip has a salty history, rich with sailors, drinking and literary exploits. Danish author Hans Christian Andersen made his home in Nyhavn as well. It's cleaned up now and is a lovely place for a stroll.
