Copenhagen Town Hall, Denmark - Sculpture and Paintings

Art Gallery

The busy Town Hall Square (Rådhuspladsen) is subjugated by Copenhagen Town Hall, which was constructed between 1892 and 1905 and is based partially on the Italian Renaissance and moderately on medieval Danish architecture. The loom soars above 350feet and the structure is splendidly festooned with sculpture and painting. Above the main doorway can be seen a figure of Bishop Absalon in gilded copper and in the Great Hall stand busts of Martin Nyrop, the architect who planned the building in 1921, the sculptor Bertel Thorvaldsen Hans Christian Andersen and the physicist Niels Bohr. The World Clock at the main entrance hall which was designed and built by Jens Olsen in 1955 shows not only the time and date but also a variety of astronomical constellations.
