København is the Obscure City closest to the Polar Circle, but enjoying a micro-climate that allows it to remain inhabitable. It is commonly called the City of A Thousand Towers and, in Friedrich's mind's eye, they are indeed numerous, incredibly tall, and all different from each other 1).

København is the Danish name of Copenhagen in our world. See also Tivoli.
