Danmarks Nationalbank is closed to the public

Danmarks Nationalbank is closed to the public due to coronavirus. This means that you cannot see, and lift, the gold ingot on display in the lobby. And you cannot buy or pick up commemorative coins, thematic coins or new banknotes and coins at the cash desk.

After the summer holidays, Danmarks Nationalbank will be temporarily relocated as we are embarking on a major restoration and renovation project of the building in Havnegade. Therefore, we do not know when it will be possible to reopen the lobby to the public.

You can contact the cash desk by email kf@nationalbanken.dk or on tel. +45 3363 7069. Telephone hours are Monday to Friday from 10:00 am to 3:00 pm.
