Copenhagen City Hall, Copenhagen

4.2
At Copenhagen City Hall, tell the time from Jens Olsen's astronomical clock built in 1955, which shows all 13 time zones and the precise position of all planets. The building was erected in the eclectic style of the Italian Renaissance and medieval Danish architecture during 1892-1905. It features a large number of sculptures and paintings. You'll notice a figure of Bishop Absalon, the founder of Copenhagen, above the main entrance. Climb the 105.6 (346 ft) high tower, the highest point in the city, for panoramic views. The clockwork starts up a carillon, which chimes its familiar tune every 15 minutes.

  • The building is located at Rådhustorget and resembles a medieval fortress, but not as a classic defense facility, but rather with a little Disneyland touch. As a tourist you will pass it several times...  more »
  • The free walking tour starts from here, well worth going on for 3 hours. The hall is photogenic outside,,but well worth taking a look inside  more »
  • The city hall is a verry nice building. It has a big meeting hall - typically for the nordics. Beatiful architecture and ornaments. Take a round trip.  more »

  • I was here with my husband for our wedding. The staffs were soooo friendly and nice. They made our wedding was really smooth and uncomplicated. First time came there I was impressed by the architecture of the building, so I and my husband explored the building and the garten to take picture after wedding ceremony.
  • Beautiful building, inside and out. If you are lucky, you will see cute couples getting married. Right now (November 2017) there are works everywhere as you can see in the pictures.
  • Wandering around the place You may find many excellent points to make great photos of central Copenhagen.
