Copenhagen City Hall is the headquarters of the municipal council as well as the Lord mayor of the Copenhagen Municipality, Denmark.
The building is situated on The City Hall Square in central Copenhagen and was built in the years 1892-1905. It was designed by architect Martin Nyrop in the National Romantic style, drawing inspiration from the Siena City Hall, Italy. In recent years, The City Hall has been used for scenes in Danish hit tv series like “The Killing” and “Borgen”.
Copenhagen City Hall is – with its 105,6 meters to the top of the tower – one of the tallest buildings in Copenhagen and offers a great view over the city.
Copenhagen City Hall is offering a reception to the first 100 participants registering (duration 1.5 hours).

GALA DINNER – LANGENLINIE PAVILLONEN
Sponsored by COWI
Wednesday, 18 May, 19:30 – 22:00
Langelinie Pavillonen is designed by architect couple Eva and Niels Koppel, two of the most prominent postwar Danish architects. In 1954 the couple won a competition arranged by the City of Copenhagen and the modernistic pavilion was built in 1956-58.
Langelinie Pavillonen stands at the center of Copenhagen’s backyard with a view to the little mermaid.
You have a direct view to the sea and green surroundings even though you are located at the center of the city. Langelinie Pavillonen is located on a dam leading to the well-preserved fortress Kastellet – and directly on the Langelinie boardwalk where the well-known tourist attraction the little mermaid is placed.
