Complimentary reception at the Copenhagen City Hall 

Tuesday, the 21st of June

The Copenhagen City Hall is situated in the very center of Copenhagen, on the city hall square. The beautiful and historic building was constructed in the years 1892-1905 and designed by architect Martin Nyrop. Both the City Hall and the shell shaped square are inspired by the city hall and square in Siena, Toscana, Italy. In this way Nyrop combined the older Danish architecture with Italian renaissance. The City Hall is decorated with paintings of Danish seaweed and other marine and terrestrial organisms. These wall paintings were made by Decoration Painter Jens Møller-Jensen and his wife. A guided tour will take you to see the seaweed ornaments in the corridors.
