Nikolaj Copenhagen Contemporary Art Center

Local nameNikolaj Kunsthal
LocationCopenhagen, Denmark

The Nikolaj Contemporary Art Center is an arts centre in Copenhagen which occupies the former St. Nicholas Church, one of the city's most conspicuous landmarks. It is situated on Højbro Plads a few steps away from Amagertorv and Strøget. The church building is famous for its fanciful Neo-Baroque 90-meter long spire. The tower offers some of the best views of the city centre.

The original church building was constructed in the early thirteenth century and was Copenhagen's third oldest church. In 1530, the ex-monk Hans Tavsen preached the first Lutheran sermon within Copenhagen in St Nicholas Church. The fire of 1795 burned down most of the building, and from 1805, it was no longer an official church.
