Comments: The present Copenhagen City Hall is situated on Rødhuspladsen (English: City Hall Square) in central Copenhagen. It was designed by architect Martin Nyrop and the design for the building was inspired by the city hall of Siena, Italy. Construction began in 1892 and the hall was opened on September 12, 1905. The appearance of the city hall is dominated by its impressive front, the golden statue of Absalon just above the balcony and the tall, slim tower with a clock. The city hall tower is at 105.6 metres one of the tallest buildings in Copenhagen. In addition to the tower clock, the City Hall houses Jens Olsen´s World Clock.
