Embark on a journey through modern architectural history with a guided tour of Danmarks Nationalbank, the masterpiece of acclaimed Danish architect Arne Jacobsen. As his final major work, the bank stands as a testament to Jacobsen’s timeless design aesthetic, earning him a place in international architectural history. This monumentally modern building is meticulously crafted both inside and out, showcasing Jacobsen’s genius as a designer. From the imposing fortress-like exterior that reflects the bank’s role as the protector of Denmark’s finances to the surprisingly light and airy interior spaces, the building is a true gesamtkunstwerk.
As a part of Danish cultural heritage and a bustling workplace, the bank is currently undergoing major restoration to ensure its future.
Join us on this exclusive tour, hosted by Danmarks Nationalbank and The Danish Association of Architects, and learn more about the history, restoration, and future of this iconic building.
