Finely colored view of Copenhagen, published at the start of the Great Northern War and Denmark's dominance in northern European affairs. The view appears to show the city as seen from Christianshavn, with the many spires of the city shown and the countryside locatable in the background.

A key at the bottom lists seven places of interest, including churches, islands, and the exchange.

This view was produced by Pierre Aveline, one of the foremost viewmakers of the 18th century.
