Copenhagen stock exchange engulfed by huge fire


A massive fire has broken out and engulfed the old stock exchange in Copenhagen, Denmark.

The 17th Century Børsen is one of the city’s oldest buildings and is a stone’s throw from Denmark’s parliament, the Folketing, housed in the old royal palace of Christiansborg castle.

The old stock exchange – commissioned by Denmark’s King Christian IV with the aim of turning Copenhagen into a major trading centre – was being renovated and had been shrouded in scaffolding and protective plastic covering.

It currently houses the Danish chamber of commerce and everyone inside the building managed to escape.
