Svanegaarden, the building that now houses the Avenue Hotel, was built in 1898, designed by the architect Emil Blichfeldt, who is known as the father of the famous main entrance to the Tivoli Gardens etc. Svanegaarden was an ultra modern building with electricity, a lift, central heating and bathrooms in all flats – this was far from commonplace at that time. There has been a hotel in the building since 1939, Hotel Petit – a residential hotel – was owned by Lilian Lorentzen The hotel changed name to Frederiksberg Hotel in 1947 and continued to operate under several owners until 1972. In 1972 Svend Aage Geschwendtner and Fredy Svendsen bought the building from the Bikuben Savings Bank, who had owned it from 1905, and renamed it Avenue Hotel.
In 2004 Mai Kappenberger, Fredy Svendsen’s granddaughter, took over directorship and the daily operation of the Avenue Hotel, bringing it into the 21st century. Starting with total renovation and refurbishing, introduction of WLAN and new, state of the art design overall, nevertheless maintaining the friendly, relaxed atmosphere of times gone by – making the Avenue Hotel one of the most attractive hotels in Copenhagen.
The boulevard, where the Avenue Hotel is located, is built on top of a stream, hence the name Åboulevard (å = stream). This stream was part of a manmade watercourse-system that dates back to the late middle ages. There is not much on record about its history until Christian IV commissioned the building of a fortified farm in 1620. This was a huge, many storied building with 500 cattle on the ground floor. The buildings were destroyed the first of many times under the Swedish siege in 1658-59 and were handed over to the Municipality of Copenhagen in 1768, who used the buildings as a poorhouse, lunatic asylum, and forced labour camp for drunks, beggars and vagabonds until it was demolished in 1908. During this period more and more houses were built on the surrounding farming land and by 1857, when it became a part of Frederiksberg, it had the character of a town. In the 1880s these houses gave way to tenements, many of which still stand today, on both sides of the stream. In 1887 work was started to cover the stream and build the broad boulevard of today.
