The Borsen building was built in the 1620’s by King Christian IV to have an official trading center in Copenhagen. Over time the building found many purposes including being used as a marketplace during the 1620’s. Borsen is most famous for its 56-meter tall spire that resembles the tails of 4 dragons coiled together.

The place is famous for its Dutch Renaissance and originally had 40 trading offices. In 1620’s, the building was used as a market center. After a few years of inactivity towards the second half of the 17th century, the building was restored in 1745 by Nicolai Eigtved and its major internal refurbishment took place in 1855.

Today, the  Borsen is one of the oldest buildings in the city and currently functions as the head office of Danish Chamber of Commerce (Dansk Erhverv).  Take a walk around the place to see the gorgeous red building and its iconic green roof with beautifully shaped windows and facades.

  • A really remarkable building. Very historic and intriguing with its special and beautiful spiral tower formed by dragon tails. Such a shame that you can't get inside it.

  • After spending around an hour here, we then embarked on the city tour. Standing at the save junction, we glimpsed at the old stock exchange as well as at other buildings. Oh, amazing view and indeed, something different compared to our day in day out city traffic life. On our travel card next was Carlsberg Brewery.

  • I loved the look of this building. It was closed when I was there and does look in need of some taking care off.

  • Beautiful architecture! First came along by foot. Later passed again with a hop-on hop-off boat. When we heard even more about the building. The history of the building! Very interesting and beautiful story!

  • Old history and fascinating architecture. Today for business and likewise events.
