Børsen, also known as Børsbygningen, is a 17th-century stock exchange in the center of Copenhagen. The historic building is situated next to Christiansborg Palace, the seat of the Danish Parliament, on the island of Slotsholmen.
The building contained 40 trading offices at the ground floor and one large room at the upper floor. The building was in use as a marketplace during the late 1620s.
The property’s address is 1217 København K, Denmark.
Construction started on this building in 1619.
The building’s architects were Hans van Steenwinckel the Younger and Lorenz van Steenwinckel.
The interior of the building was renovated in 1855. In 1857, Frederick VII sold the building to Grosserer-Societetet for 70,000 rigsdaler.
The building housed the Danish stock-market until 1974. In 1918, unemployed anarchists attacked Børsen, an attack that went to the Danish history books as “stormen på Børsen” (The Storm of the Stock Exchange). The building was restored by Nicolai Eigtved in 1745.
The building now serves as headquarters of the Danish Chamber of Commerce (Dansk Erhverv).
