Stock Exchange, Copenhagen

4.5
#30 of 90 in Sightseeing in Copenhagen
Architectural Building Tourist Spot
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.

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.
