Who We Are
As the first China Cultural Center in the Nordic Region, our center is dedicated to promoting the understanding and appreciation of Chinese culture to the local people through cultural events and activities, with the purpose of continuously fostering mutual understanding and strengthening existing friendships between China and Denmark. Our mission: quality, friendship, partnership, and accessibility. The cultural center is situated on H.C. Andersens Boulevard in the heart of Copenhagen. It was the former site for the Royal Danish Academy of Music. The cultural center is next to the city’s landmarks and famous buildings including the Copenhagen City Hall, Tivoli Gardens, and Ny Carlsberg Glyptotek.
The building has an interior space of 2,434 square meters and contains a number of facilities including a multi-functional hall, an exhibition hall, a library, a room for Chinese tea culture, several classrooms for teaching, and other rooms and spaces. The China Cultural Center in Copenhagen was jointly inaugurated by Comrade Liu Yunshan, the former member of the Politburo Standing Committee of the Chinese Communist Party, and Marianne Jelved, the former Minister of Culture of Denmark, on June 11, 2014.
