Abstract icon In 2009, the Heritage Agency of Denmark (now the Danish Agency for Culture and Palaces) decided to list the Danmarks Nationalbank building at the recommendation of the Historic Buildings Council. At that time, it was the youngest listed building in Denmark.

The listing is based on the architectural and cultural historical values of the building, including its architectural presence in the city, its plan arrangement and materials, gardens and courtyards and the attention to detail.

The listing means that Danmarks Nationalbank must apply to the Agency for permission to perform other construction work than maintenance.

Solar panels on the roof

In 2013, Danmarks Nationalbank chose to install solar panels on the roof of the building. The panels were placed horizontally so that they are not visible from the street and do not detract from the façades of the building. The solar panels provide a good 100,000 kWh a year. ​
