The Royal Taxhouse & Toldbodsplads

The Royal Taxhouse in Aalborg was designed by architect Hack Kampmann and built in 1902. Among other buildings, Hack Kampmann was also the architect behind Marselisborg castle, the theatre in Århus and the police building in Copenhagen.

In recent years, the Royal Taxhouse has gone through a large restoration and today the building appears as it originally did. In 2006, the building was awarded with a prize by the municipality for the beautiful and extensive restoration of one of the old and valuable buildings in Aalborg which has made it appear beautiful in the townscape. Likewise, in 2007 the building received the award “Ros” (ed. praise) and in 2007 it received the award “Façade of the year”.

The building is an example of the Danish romantic style with motives from the renaissance. Among other details, the style is seen on the symmetrical façade with the stately stairs. Furthermore, many unique details can be seen in the masonry.
