Welcome to Nikolaj Kunsthal

Visit Nikolaj Kunsthal and experience Danish and international contemporary art with a special focus on local anchoring. 

The art centre is located in the old church of Saint Nicholas dating back to the 13th century. Beautiful architecture interacts with innovative and engaging contemporary art. Exhibitions change, so there is always something new to see and experience in the unique setting.

Located in the heart of Copenhagen, a few minutes' walk from Kongens Nytorv, Nyhavn, shopping, cafés and the Metro, Nikolaj Kunsthal is a vibrant house with concerts, artist talks, performances, a shop, café and much more. From Tuesday to Sunday, it is also possible to visit the old church tower from where there is a panoramic view of Copenhagen at a height of 35 metres. Every autumn, the art centre is dedicated to an exhibition for the entire family.
