Headquarters of The Ministry of Culture Denmark

The Ministry of Culture Denmark (Danish: Kulturministeriet) is a ministry of the Danish Government, with responsibility for culture, sport and media.

History

The Danish Ministry of Culture was founded in 1961 with Julius Bomholt as its first cultural minister.[1]

Headquarters

The Ministry is located at Gammel Strand with address from Nybrogade [da] 2. The building is a former mayor's house dating from 1729–30, built for mayor Christian Bjerregård. Originally, it was a three-winged building but a fourth wing facing the canal [da] was added by the architect Philip de Lange. It served from 1759 to c. 1950 as a pawnbroker's shop [da]. In 1962, the Ministry of Culture moved in after the building had undergone a thorough restoration.[2]
