Charlottenborg is the official exhibition gallery of the Royal Danish Academy of Art and is the biggest venue for contemporary art in Copenhagen. The palatial residence was constructed in the 17th century for Ulrik Frederik Gyldenløve. Queen Dowager Charlotte Amalie bought the Baroque palace in 1700, and her name has been affixed to it ever since.
Charlottenborg presents 4 - 5 exhibitions per year. It has become famous for its open submission spring exhibition, which is reviewed by a jury before the selection is shown. The fall exhibition is by invitation only. In addition to its exhibition space, Charlottenborg also has a Mezzanine available for many mediums of expression of the contemporary arts, from performances to debates.
Great, great value in this card. We used it for 72 hours and the freedom you get with going into each event each day is fabulous. Some times we only had 1/2 an hour before a museum or castle would close and we could go in for the short time before the venue closed. Being also able to use it to get to the airport by the metro is a huge plus.
Got a great overview of the city. it was a windy and rainy day so at least we got to see what we could through the window
This was a great investment. We were able to ride trains, get into Tivoli Gardens and other sightseeing venues by just showing the card. Well worth the price in that pricey city.
The exhibitions are internationally oriented and suited to art enthusiasts in any form. The entrance is accessible from both Kongens Nytorv and Nyhavn. For the metro, get off at the Kongens Nytorv stop. For the bus, take the 1A, 15, 19, 26, or 350S.
