Nordatlantens Brygge

North Atlantic House is an art centre where you can encounter North Atlantic culture, research and business. Here, people from the North Atlantic, Denmark, and the rest of the world meet and inspire one another.

The opening of North Atlantic House marks the first in a line of events guaranteed to expand your horizon and stir your senses. You will find four exhibition rooms in which you can get a taste of North Atlantic culture.

Experience everything from performances, dance, music, films and lectures to a mixture of exhibitions, events and debating evenings. And much more.

Explore North Atlantic art and culture in the setting of an old protected 16-century warehouse. For more than 200 years, Nordatlantens Brygge was the centre of shipping traffic between Denmark and the North Atlantic.

Authentic surroundings

These days, other ports serve the North Atlantic market, and the historic warehouse is now a thriving cultural centre, dedicated to the art and culture of Denmark’s former North Atlantic colonies Greenland, the Faroe Islands, and Iceland.

North Atlantic artists are often inspired by the landscapes, light, and nature sounds of their region, which lends a fiercely visual, bodily, and musical quality to their art.

The rustic, maritime spirit of the old warehouse with its raw plank floors and exposed rafter ceilings offers a unique and beautiful contrast to the artworks on display.

Nordic food

Visit the cultural centre to get a first-hand impression of this intriguing harbourfront area. The North Atlantic House is open year-round and offers a lovely café where you can rest your weary bones.

On the Nordatlantens Brygge Harbour Front, you will also find the Faroese and Greenlandic Representations, the Icelandic Embassy, and the national tourist boards of these three countries.
