Copenhagen, 1559

The Town Hall is a popular building, located at Rådhuspladsen (the Town Hall Square). Designed by Martin Nyrop, the Town Hall was constructed in the years 1892 to 1905, the model for it being the town hall in the Italian town of Sienna. The building is also reminiscent of Danish Medieval architecture. The Town Hall is decorated with a large number of sculptures, and a 106.5-metre tower, from the top of which you get an excellent view over Copenhagen. The Town Hall is home to the representatives of Copenhagen, but it is also used when a Head of State from a foreign country pays a visit.
