Charlottenborg Palace Copenhagen

It seems there is simply nothing that Denmark’s cute and cosy Copenhagen can’t do, its hygge-fuelled engines whirring with gusto at Kunsthal Charlottenborg, leading the way for all art that's brilliantly international and contemporary.

Settled on its cobbled King's New Square home, carved vines frame the wide windows and decorative grilles of must-see Copenhagen art gallery, Kunsthal Charlottenborg.

Hosting contemporary exhibitions, installations, films, talks and events from artists both international and Denmark-based, there is always something to do, see and engage with. And knowing trend-setting Copenhagen, you'll want to be able to say you 'saw it there first', anyway.
