Børsen

During my walk on the little island of Slotsholmen in the centre of Copenhagen, I found this mirror near Børsen, the Stock Exchange, of which I told you something in my last post.

Through this mirror you can see the street Børsgade with in the background Børsen.
Børsen is built between 1620 and 1640 by King Christian IV as a market place. It is one of the oldest buildings in the city. It was designed by the Dutch architects Lorents and Hans van Steenwinckel in Dutch Renaissance-style, the same architects and style as Frederiksborg Slot in Hillerød.
The building is best known for its tower, Dragespiret (the Dragon Steeple), representing four dragon tails intertwining. Nowadays the building is the office of the Danish Chamber of Commerce.

The tower you can see a bit of in the background is the one of Vor Frelsers Kirke (Church of Our Saviour) in Christianshavn.

I hope you like this picture of Børsen!
