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.

  • Located next to the Tivoli Gardens amusement park. Hans Christian Andersen statue is located beside the Town Hall so any photos, etc.? In addition, front of the Town Hall is a square, has free public toilet in the corner. The valuable information for the trip? It takes about 10 minutes walk from here to Tivoli.

  • 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.
  • The interior is spectacular and breathtaking. There is a nice courtyard with a fountain reminiscent of the Italian renaissance.
  • A beautiful building. An exact replica of an Italian building. You should join one of the free walking tours in front. (Yellow umbrella!)
