Completed in 1905, Copenhagen's national romantic-style town hall is the work of architect Martin Nyrop. The building's most famous resident is the curious Jens Olsen's World Clock , designed by astromechanic Jens Olsen (1872–1945) and built at a cost of one million kroner. Not only does it display local time, but also solar time, sidereal time, sunrises and sunsets, firmament and celestial pole migration, planet revolutions, the Gregorian calendar and even changing holidays! You can also climb the 105m city hall tower for a commanding view of the city.
The building's architecture is influenced by both medieval Danish and northern Italian architecture, the latter most notable in the central, fountain-studded courtyard . Adorning the facade above the main entrance is a golden statue of Bishop Absalon, who founded the city in 1167.
