Køge was founded by royal order at the first place south of Copenhagen that had a natural harbour. The order was issued in the years prior to 1288, and placing the town also included the design of a town plan. This plan continues to provide the setting for the old town centre up to our days. Køge was granted a municipal charter in 1288.
