The public service channel Danish Broadcasting has a fanatastic website about Hans Christian Andersen and I particularly recommend its Time Machine feature.
If you want to get a crash course in Copenhagen's history in the 1800s click your way to the site and watch the city come alive with images, sounds and heaps of extras. They have an English version. The perfect way to prepare for a visit to the city for those who find history interesting.
