Cast Iron and wrought Iron fences

At the HQ of Maersk

A beautiful #mansion in the innermost of #Copenhagen, close to the residency of the royal family in Denmark and close to the river. The building is from 1898. The cast iron or wrought iron fence is amazing. The architecture and style of the mansion plays well with the fence.

The spikes keep uninvited guests away. That might be relevant as the house houses an organisation that helps women, who need protection from they family and/or former husband or boyfriend.
