Old Stock Exchange (Børsen) Tours

Old Stock Exchange (Børsen)
Built in 1625, the Old Stock Exchange is one of Copenhagen’s oldest and most recognizable buildings. Characterized by a green copper roof, the landmark is one of Denmark’s finest examples of Dutch Renaissance architecture. Unfortunately, it’s not open to the public due to its role as the headquarters of the Danish Chamber of Commerce.

The Basics
Travelers can explore the areas surrounding the building, but it’s difficult to actually get inside; only those with invites to official events are lucky enough to pass through the doors. Nevertheless, guided tours by foot, bike, and boat typically stop at the building and allow you to admire its exterior. Visitors should keep their eyes out for the swirling dragons on the spire atop the red brick building, which represents the kingdoms of Denmark, Sweden, and Norway.

Things to Know Before You Go

  • The Old Stock Exchange is a must-visit for those interested in Danish history and architecture.
  • One of the best views of the building is from the canal, while cruising through the city on a boat tour.
  • The building is located next to Christiansborg Palace, the seat of the Danish Parliament, so there may be increased security in the area at times.

How to Get There
Located on the island of Slotsholmen, the Old Stock Exchange is within easy walking distance of many other attractions, including the National Museum of Denmark and Tivoli Gardens. It is around a 15-minute walk from Copenhagen Central Station. You can also take the number 2A bus to the Borsen (Borsgade) stop in front of the building.

When to Get There
As the site is not open to the public, there are no set visiting hours. It is at its most picturesque around sunset when the building’s red bricks and green roof are warmed by the glow of the setting sun.

The Dragontailed Spire

Legend has it that the twisting dragon’s tail spire protects the building against enemy attacks and fires. It’s a convincing legend, because the Old Stock Exchange has been spared from damage many times, even when fires have broken out in neighbouring buildings. Christiansborg Palace, for example, has burnt down on several occasions. Most recently, in 1990, a fire broke out in the Proviantgaarden in Slotsholmsgade (Slotholm Street), but once again, the Old Stock Exchange escaped harm.

Monstour: Discover Danish folk legends on an audio walking tour

Monstour: Discover Danish folk legends on an audio walking tour

star-5
The legendary creatures of Danish folklore are more than just the Little Mermaid immortalised by H. C. Andersen. The Danish bestiary also includes such monsters as man-eating trolls, dragons who hoard treasures and fight against bulls, the heraldic wild men depicted on the royal coat of arms and the strange creature known as the ”Sea Bishop”. Even the centre of Copenhagen that draws the most tourists and traffic is haunted by mythical beasts who are seen in statues, reliefs and artwork on buildings. Yet many of these monsters remain unknown to most visitors. You can, however, now fill this gap in your folkloric knowledge with this self-guided GPS audio tour. Download the HidDenmark Monstour VoiceMap unto your Smartphone. It will guide you on a journey from the Tivoli amusement park over the Copenhagen Stock Exchange to the canals, while narrating how weird tales of strange and terrible beings have shaped the capitol of the country.
