We found ourselves near City Hall on a rainy afternoon and I remembered seeing recommendations for the Clock on TA. We found that although some parts of City Hall were closed for the day, this attraction was still available to view. We spent a short while admiring the ingenuity and intricate details of this masterpiece. The room is quite small... More

I didn't know this was here, and am so glad the TA community pointed it out. It's easy to miss the entrance to the room just to the right of the main entrance to City Hall. Excellent video and prints history around the beautiful old clock in the centre of the room. Fascinating to realize the clock hasn't even done... More

This was a real surprise. Just inside the entrance doors beside Tourist Information, go to the room on your right. Entrance is free and this is an outstanding exhibit. Get up close on both sides of the clock and be amazed. Good information panels in multiple languages most helpful.

If you get into the city hall, you will meet this fantastic clock. It is free to go closer, and you can watch the astronomical clock from very close.

Jens Olsen's World Clock is an advanced astronomical clock you will find in Copenhagen City Hall. When exiting the city hall, go to your left, and for a couple of minutes you will be amazed. The clock consists of 12 movements. It is mechanical and must be wound once a week. It tells the time, the calendar, lunar and solar... More

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.
