SAS Royal Hotel

A love story

The world’s first design hotel celebrated its 60th anniversary in 2020. The SAS Royal Hotel – now the Radisson Collection Royal Hotel – is one of Arne Jacobsen’s most iconic buildings.

The hotel became one of Denmark’s first skyscrapers. It is a perfect example of how Jacobsen mastered all steps in the architectural process, from the largest lines to the smallest details.
When the hotel opened, it was considered the most modern hotel in the Nordic region, but not everyone was equally impressed by Jacobsen’s masterpiece. Why was the SAS Royal Hotel so reviled in its time? And how was it also a declaration of love for Copenhagen?

We zoom in on Arne Jacobsen – a modern pioneer who was ahead of his time – and one of his most famous buildings.

SAS Royal Hotel – a love story is an intuitive, playful and tactile exhibition, which shows Arne Jacobsen’s thoughts about total design, radical architecture and beautiful design elements.

You will find the exhibition in DAC Passage.
