Copenhagen City Hall

Copenhagen City Hall 

In the heart of Copenhagen, you will find Copenhagen City Hall. Copenhagen City Hall was built in 1892-1905 and was designed by architect Martin Nyrop. Martin Nyrop was inspired by the town halls of Italy, and the building is today considered as a classic of the National Romantic style. The National Romantic features shine through throughout the building - from the richly decorated exterior to the detailed interior with hidden gems hidden in everything from murals to stair railings. 

Today, the Town Hall is used for Civic Council meetings, weddings and national celebrations.
