DSC00019 Børsen - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia: "The Stock Exchange) is a building on the island Slotsholmen in central Copenhagen built by Christian IV in 1619-1640.
The building was designed by Hans van Steenwinckel in the style of the Dutch renaissance architecture and is famous among tourists for its 'dragonspire'. The spire from 1625 is shaped as the tails of four dragons twined together.
The tower measures 56 meters. The building was restored by Nicolai Eigtved in 1745 and internally renovated in 1855. It housed the Danish stock-market until 1974."
