Government Building Architectural Building
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.

  • You can climb the tower, but we were satisfied with the Italianate hall, and the amazing clock designed in 1940s, showing the planets and continents.  more »

  • The building here is absolutely beautiful. We came here to be married and it was a great choice. The staff did a great job of making things uncomplicated and yet both dignified and joyful. But even if you don't have a special occasion it's worth visiting here to see some beautiful architecture and perhaps look at the current art exhibit on display.
  • Beautiful building inside and out. Absolutely would recommend taking a tour and walking to the top. It's a long way and not made for the not so physically fit. But it's definitely worth it!
  • I'm not there for Cityhall but I'm there for the big Neon light billboard sign that is on ground level! I've used it several times for photos and portraits. Works great!
  • One of the more famous buildings in Copenhagen, worth a visit if you're visiting Tivoli
  • Beautiful building with a lot of history. Nice to veiw from the Town square.
