The basics

Kunsthal Charlottenborg is housed in a Dutch-inspired baroque palace in downtown Copenhagen. The palace was built in the late 17th century for wealthy Copenhagener (and illegitimate son of the King) Frederik Gyldenløve, and was then bought by the Queen Dowager Charlotte Amalie in 1700. The palace has carried her name ever since. Visitors can enjoy the contemporary art exhibits that are housed in a separate pavilion, built in 1883.

The gallery is famous for its annual Spring Exhibition – held since 1857 – that anyone from around the world can enter. The buildings are also home to the Danish Art Library. The gallery holds regular special events, from artist talks to concerts and video screenings.
