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 - Write a Review

  • It's not one of the bigger museums in the city but its contemporary collection with a strong focus on the bigger issues the world faces today left a truly lasting impression on me. 5+ stars!! This museum does what many try but few really get right. It shows art with a message without being preachy or high-blown.

  • Had a good experience if the contemporary art Scene of Copenhagen at the time. From a photographer taking about his work to some experimental art.

  • Contemporary private museum. Currently outside is the a installations from the Chinese activist and artists Ai Wei Wei

  • Enjoyed the current exhibitions even though I'm not a great fan of modern art. Free entry on Wednesdays after 17:00.

  • Definitely worth a stop in this centrally located museum. Nice atmosphere and terrasse. Exhibitions are varied and stimulating.
