  • THE LAUNCH OF THE TOWER

    June 11th 2014 sees the public opening of the Tower of Christiansborg, where the Danish Parliament resides. The tower is 106 meters high and is the tallest of Copenhagen’s many towers, providing a spectacular view of the city. The tour of the tower is free and can be combined with a visit to the new restaurant run by the acknowledged Danish chef Rasmus Bo Bojesen

    Everyone will get a chance to have a stunning aerial view of Copenhagen when the national parliament of Denmark opens the tower of Christiansborg to the public on the 11th of June. This can be accompanied by a cup of tea or coffee and cake or a meal in the spectacular restaurant located in the tower.

    Until today the upper chambers of Christiansborg have been used as store rooms. However, in 2012 Mogens Lykketoft, chairman of the Danish Parliament, and the rest of the executive committee decided to open the historical rooms to the public.

    “Our decision to initiate the restoration of the tower was driven by the wish to open up Christiansborg to the public. The launch of the tower means that everyone can visit one of the most renowned buildings in the country of Denmark, and I hope that as many as possible will take advantage of that opportunity,” says Mogens Lykketoft.

    With regard to the launch of the restaurant, ‘Tårnet’, in the tower, Mogens Lykketoft states: “The restaurant is a place for everyone. A place where people and the elected politicians get an opportunity to meet. Furthermore, we hope the restaurant will attract tourists who will get a chance to enjoy Danish cuisine above the Danish Parliament.”

    A RESTAURANT FOR EVERYONE
    The acknowledged Danish chef Rasmus Bo Bojesen will be in charge of the food in the restaurant. Bojesen has run various restaurants over the years and currently, apart from Tårnet, also runs the restaurant at the Royal Opera House of Copenhagen.

    “We were asked to create a restaurant for everyone, no less than that,” Ramus Bo Bojesen states, ”that is why we have tried to create an atmosphere of something aesthetic mixed with something casual. We want to invite everyone to dine here and have really made an effort to make the food and the surroundings complement each other.”

    The food will reflect the seasons as this makes the Danish menu special. At Tårnet dinner will mean experiencing refined versions of traditional Danish dishes made with high quality Danish produce. The thinking is to carry well known dishes forward in classic, yet new, versions. Bojesen will serve food with the best of sea, forest, field, shore and meadow.

    “In the middle of the culinary New Nordic wave, we’d like to create something new with some of the more ordinary Danish produce,” says Rasmus Bo Bojesen. He is a chef who, in all his restaurants, is known to cook sophisticated food with simple high quality produce. The menu at Tårnet includes, amongst other things, forest pigs, special schnapps and herring cured in barrels.

    FOOD ALL DAY
    At Tårnet lunch, afternoon tea with Bojesen’s confectionary and dinner will be served.
    For lunch Bojesen will serve traditional open sandwiches with a modern touch. Central to this meal is the traditional, Danish open sandwich with fresh potatoes.
    The dinner menu will vary according to season. The menu is short and fixed, but will be changed often. Bojesen’s modern, organic confectionary is the heart of the afternoon tea.
