Copenhagen City Hall, Copenhagen
(4.3/5 based on 950+ reviews on the web)
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. Our Copenhagen vacation planner makes visiting Copenhagen City Hall and other Copenhagen attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.

  • Like all ratusham, the Copenhagen Town Hall is located and dominates over the extensive Town Hall square. Kopengagencam with ratushami unlucky. They regularly burned from the fires. Therefore, the current brick building, built in the style of Northern Art Nouveau, you can say modern-appeared only at the beginning of the last century. It is said that when building a sample was taken from one of the palaces of Siena. Its clock tower rises to 105 metres high and serves as a good reference for walks around the city. From the outside you can see rich masonry decoration.

  • It's nice to see the really modern building for the Lord Mayor in London, and other cities in the world, but there is something special when you come across a building like this. Very impressive. 
  • In Copenhagen Lily Soaker ... and it was impossible not to visit the town, at least, to keep warm and a bit left. ... I don't even expect some splendor awaits inside. You can walk on all (!) stories, admire the beautiful paintings, sculptures, ... antique washstands in the corridors. And in the offices of employees work for old doors-offices with the latest equipment! Oh and free toilets on all floors is also important for tourists)

  • The Hall's building nowaday have built and officially opened in 1905 by architect Martin Nyrop style with National Romantic style. Which are styled exclusively for the Nordic. And it has been inspired by the Siena City Hall or Palazzo Pubblico in Italy. I really love the romantic style inside Copenhagen City Hall.
  • A large building with good architecture. The free areas are good to wander around, but you can't really go to too many different rooms. I'd say you could do the whole thing in an hour or so.
  • You should go a play hide and seek here and look a the good old atmosphere
  • The interior is spectacular and breathtaking. There is a nice courtyard with a fountain reminiscent of the Italian renaissance.
  • Great place to visit. We didn't find any tour guide, but we could get inside an see it anyway. Don't miss the astrological clock, a 1920's masterpiece of ingenuity
