Business events

The National Gallery of Denmark offers beautiful architecture and a stylish setting right in the heart of Copenhagen and 700 years of art.

The Gallery is excellently suited for major events such as anniversaries, award ceremonies, receptions, formal dinners, company parties, and any official event that requires spacious, inspiring settings.

Our philosophy
We operate with a clear philosophy when it comes to events at the SMK: Clients and their guests should enjoy the core event itself as well as the setting, the unique architecture, the food, the wine, and the music as part of a seamless whole.
The Gallery’s event department will create a bespoke event for you, coordinating every detail – from the choice of menu to table decorations, and lighting and how to stage an experience that reflects the rich heritage and spirit of art.

SMK is, wants and does

Read about the history of the SMK, the organization and what the SMK is, does and wants in the future.

The building is a work of art in its own right. The old and new Gallery buildings meet in the spectacular glass-roofed Sculpture Street. The Sculpture Street are very suitable for dinner parties, receptions, shows, and product launches. The Gallery can accommodate 1,000 people (standing up) for a reception in the Sculpture Street and on the Stage, or 500 seated guests for dinner in th Sculpture Street and 200 seated guests for dinner on the Stage. The Stage also allows you to party and dance to live music until 2.00 am.

Canapés, drinks, or a four-course formal meal?
Of course, cuisine plays a major part to events at the SMK.

We co-operate with Copenhagen chef Frederik Bille Brahe, who has opened his new restaurant, Kafeteria, at SMK – the National Gallery of Denmark.

Kafeteria is happy to deliver custom-made menus for corporate events at SMK. Frederik Bille Brahe and his team will bring in Danish and international partners to create gourmet food experiences of the highest international standard for your event

They are deft hands at the art of preparing a sumptuous four-course meal followed by an open bar for 500 guests. The quality of the food is matched only by the speed of the service!

A spotlight event
In terms of event technology, we co-operate with some of Denmark’s top professionals within sound and lighting. They will help create the right atmosphere and impact for your event.
