Charlottenborg Palace - Review

Located at the heart of Copenhagen, Kunsthal Charlottenborg is the official exhibition space for the Royal Danish Academy of Art. The palace itself dates back to the late 17th century and served as a residence to Ulrik Frederik Gyldenløve- the lead general during the Scanian War.  The palace was designed in baroque style and has a library of fine arts that is an attraction in itself.

In the 18th century, Queen Charlotte Amalie bought this place and since then the palace is named after her. Today, the art life of Copenhagen is incomplete without this place- the highlight being the spring exhibition. For architecture lovers, the courtyard offers a stunning view of the whole palace with beautiful creepers gracing its walls and  along with its café, the place offers one of the few pleasures of seeing history merge with the modern times.

Charlottenborg Palace, Copenhagen Reviews

  • I have visited an interesting art and architecture exxibition. Beautiful building and courtyard.

  • Very grateful for the timely attendance on change of guards. The palace guards here are dressed in black compared to the red ones at Buckingham Palace. Beautiful, solid, regal and historical! The Danish palace has the advantage of being so so close to the water !

  • Great palace, neat looking square with guards, historical monument. It's definitely must visit place.

  • Charlottenburg is always a nice Place to walk by.

  • Political art is a hard genre. Charlottenborg Kunsthal focused on civil disobedience and rebeling. In the exhibition or a Turkish artist and Yoko Ono. One exhibition was fragmented and superficial, the other an obscure historical record. The documentary on Aaron Swartz was quite good though. It portrayed an online activist who took part in shaping important political developments surrounding the new digital reality. There is so much to dive into in this area, and it is very relevant as we all use devices most of the day.
