For nearly four centuries - from 1536 to the 1920s - this was Denmark's only university. Most of its buildings were destroyed in 1801 when the British fleet commanded by Admiral Horatio Nelson bombarded the capital. Nineteenth-century rebuilding included a library, zoo, geological museum and botanic gardens. Today, 7,000 staff teach 38,000 students.
