If you're around Tivoli or the central station, wander into the town hall and spend a few minutes admiring this astounding piece of craftsmanship. One of the coolest things I saw in Copenhagen, and thoroughly mind-boggling. Best of all it is completely free to go see it.

If you have the time and you are around Rådhuspladsen you should give this clock a chance. No entrance fee.

Located in the town hall, this clock is magnificient. One of the coolest features Kopenhagen has to offer. Its free, so just walk in, sit down and enjoy the structure that connects the time with the movement of the earth and the movement of the sun. Really cool!!

A little gem not to be missed at City Hall. Jensen Olsen's Clock is a beautiful marvel of fine craftsmanship built to last more than 25,000 years, displaying time, the motion of the planets and much more. One can linger over this marvel for hours.

This is a very interesting clock and it's located very near Tivoli and Central Station. Information in English is posted near the clock and there is ample seating to sit and admire the clock. It's definitely worth stopping in to see if you're on your way to Tivoli Gardens or Central Station.
