Kunsthal Charlottenborg

Kunsthal Charlottenborg is one of the largest exhibition spaces for contemporary art in Europe.

Here you’ll experience exhibitions and events with a strong international focus.

With its central location in the heart of Copenhagen in a historical extention to the Charlottenborg Palace, Kunsthal Charlottenborg is at the same time one of the most beautiful exhibition spaces for contemporary art. The exhibition space has since 1883 presented an ambitious exhibition programme that includes established stars and as well as new talent from both home and abroad.

The exhibitions are supplemented by activities like artist talks, performances, concerts and video screenings. The exhibition space’s activities are focused towards a broad audience in both Copenhagen and surrounding areas, but also outside Denmark, which makes Kunsthal Charlottenborg the central rallying point for contemporary art in Copenhagen.


Kunsthal Charlottenborg also includes the respected Motto Bookstore, where you can find a special selection of art books and magazines, books on critic design, typography, literature and theory.

Open court yard

The court yard of Kunsthal Charlottenborg is open to the public and with its calm environment can be used as a much needed breathing hole with benches, where you can relax, and where children might play around in safe surroundings.
