The Town Hall and Architecture
The Town Hall complex of Copenhagen was built during 1892-1905 - exactly where the old Lucie Mill and Gyldenløves bastion was located and demolished in 1888 to give space for the upcoming exhibition and New Town Hall. It is a very attractive and popular building - not only for outside visitors but also for the local Copenhageners. The entire complex is designed by Martin Nyrop - who based his project on the Italian Renaissance style and on medieval Danish architecture. Above the main entrance is a figure of Bishop Absalon in gilded copper - who is the founder of Copenhagen in 1167. The 107 metres high tower is equipped with a carillon that chimes its familiar tune all over the capital every day. Anyone is welcome to visit the Town Hall - and admire Jens Olsen’s astronomical clock - or climb the highest tower in the city with an outstanding view over Copenhagen.

The building is decorated with a large numbers of sculptures and paintings and houses the local City Council and City Government of Copenhagen. The Hall is also used to welcome heads of states from other countries - as well as for civil marriage ceremonies. From 1420 until the present Town Hall was completed in 1905 - the City Council of Copenhagen was placed in five different buildings around the City.




The Town Hall Square
The Town Hall square is the living stage of the city and is bustling with great activity day and night. The Square is situated right in the heart of the town together with the zero mile stone - and a stature of the famous writer H. C. Andersen is placed beside of the building and just opposite Tivoli Gardens. The City Square is also a very popular meeting place and a convenient starting point for trips to explore the city.
