The Ministry of Culture

The Ministry of Culture of Denmark (Danish: Kulturministeriet) is a department of the Danish Government, with responsibility for culture, sport and media.

History

The Danish Ministry of Culture was founded in 1961 with Julius Bomholt as its first cultural minister.[1]

Building

The Ministry of Culture is located at Gammel Strand with address from Nybrogade 2. The building is former mayor's house from 1729-30, built for mayor William Bjerregård. Originally it was a three-winged building but a fourth wing towards the canal was added by the architect Philip de Lange. From 1759 – c. 1950 it served as a pawnbroker's shop. In 1962 the Ministry of Culture moved in after the building had undergone thorough restoration.[2]
