Nyboder is an old residential area near Østerport in Copenhagen. The construction of the area was initiated by King Christian IV in 1631. The homes - which originally housed the families of skilled people in the navy - were laid in the district of New Copenhagen, which arose when the king doubled the area of the city with an extension to the east. The houses were originally red and white, but in the 1860s got the characteristic yellow color. Due. decay, the Gray Sticks were erected in place of the oldest of the Yellow Sticks. Today, De Gule Stokke still houses the defense personnel, while De Grå Stokke has been sold off.
