Trafficlab and the Bernstorff’s Mansion: Working in a unique historical setting

Today we will travel back in time and take you on a small tour in the surroundings of our office. Trafficlab lays on Bredgade 42 in the heart of the historical Frederiksstaden district in Copenhagen.

The planning and construction of the rococo style district started around 1750 to commemorate the 300 years anniversary of the first crowning of an associate of the House of Oldenburg. Many beautiful mansions and historical buildings were constructed along Bredgade. The street got its name – broad street – already in the 16th century when it had become the widest street outside Copenhagen’s eastern city gate.

Our Trafficlab office itself is located in the beautiful Bernstorff’s Mansion which was built from 1752-1756 by order of Johann Hartwig Ernst von Bernstorff. The marble floors, huge windows and high ceilings with stucco decorations do not only provide a lot of daylight and make the office shine bright but also assure a unique work environment. The original, high-end French tapestries and rococo furniture were sold in 1910 to America where it is now displayed at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York.

The Marble Church and Amalienborg Palaces

Passing the impressive marble circular staircase in the entrance hall of our building, we are leaving the office now. We only have to cross the street, because just 50 meters away from our entrance we are able to marvel at the Frederik’s Church, more commonly known as the Marble Church. The construction of the ‘Mamorkirken’ also started in the middle of the 18th century to commemorate the tercentenary of the first crowning. The church was most probably inspired by the Saint Peter’s Basilica in the Vatican and its massive dome is the largest church dome to be found in Scandinavia. Some of our colleagues are lucky enough to get a glance on the marble church from their desk while working.

If we leave our Trafficlab office through the back entrance though, we will be able to enjoy the tranquility of a beautiful courtyard. From here it is just another 1-minute walk along Frederiksgade to Amalienborg, home of the Danish royal family. The palaces of the Amalienborg were built in the middle of the 18th century as well.

An event we can experience every day from our office is the change of the royal guard, which usually takes place daily around noon. When the queen is in residence the marching guards are accompanied by the royal guard’s music band, which passes directly by our windows to delight our day with some music.

The historical surroundings of our office add an extraordinary and unique experience to our work environment. Walking by such impressive architecture on our way to Trafficlab and working in such a fine historical mansion, delights and inspires us every day.
