Copenhagen City Hall

Iconic building the heart of Copenhagen, and the seat of the city council.

Set on Copenhagen’s City Hall Square, this iconic and beautiful building was built in the years 1892-1905 and was designed by the architect Martin Nyrop with inspiration from Siena City Hall in Italy. In recent years, the City Hall has been featured in Danish hit TV series like "The Killing" and "Borgen".

City Hall is one of the tallest buildings in Copenhagen, and offers a great view over the city from its 105.6 meter-high tower. It is also an open public building where you can come and go as you please during the opening hours, except from the tower where you'll need to be escorted by a guide.
