Copenhagen Stock Exchange, Copenhagen

4.6
Copenhagen Stock Exchange is famous for its prominent spire of four dragons with intertwined tails topped by three golden crowns, symbolizing the union of the Nordic countries. King Christian IV commissioned the building in the early 17th century, with the ambition to turn Copenhagen into a financial and trade center. Legend has it that the 60 m (197 ft) high dragon spire saved the building from enemy attacks, as well as many fires that have damaged neighboring buildings. You can view the outside, but the building is not open to the public aside from scheduled events, such as dinners, conferences, and parties.

  • Building really nice, although I think a thorough cleaning to enhance it enough. The building is crowned by a structure that simulates the linked tails of dragons. Funny and nice view (only outside). Not be accessed inside because it is now an office building.

  • This building stands out as it has an interesting crocodile like spiral on the top the building.....  more »
  • Very interesting and beautiful edifice. Emerging as one of Copenhagen's most beautiful buildings both outside as inside. The site is often used for wine tastings.

  • “The Exchange, a beautiful 17th-century Renaissance building, was constructed to give new impetus to Danish economic life. King Christian IV, who commissioned the building, could literally keep an eye on the progress of the construction work from this place. Notice also the pretty little brass turret, the spire of which is made up of four interlaced dragon tails and three royal crowns. The Dutch word ‘Beurs’, meaning exchange ( or stock exchange), is derived from the Dutch name Van der Beurs, a Bruges publican.” -MINI-EUROPE

Where to stay in Copenhagen

Most of the hotels in Copenhagen are located in the central Vesterbro or hip Indre By areas, though there are many more adventurous (and somewhat more affordable) places to stay during your vacation. As in the rest of Denmark, accommodations in Copenhagen are quite expensive. If you're traveling on a tight budget, consider camping along the Mølleå River or staying in one of the city's many backpacker hostels. If you prefer an inexpensive hotel, explore options in the Helgolandsgade and Colbjørnsensgade neighborhoods. For a taste of Denmark's art scene, head to the up-and-coming Kongens Nytorv and Nyhavn areas. Travelers who like to stay outside of the main tourist areas should set their sights on one of the city's suburbs, like the northern section where you can stay at a beachfront hotel or on a houseboat.
