Axelborg Staircase by P
Staircase Rotunda Axelborg, Copenhagen DenmarkPhoto details: Exposure 1/40 sec at f/6.3 (ISO 640), Camera Canon EOS 5D Mark III with a EF40mm f/2.8 STM lens at 40mm. Photo by: Iwillbehomesoon.

It is located in the centre of Copenhagen right across from Tivoli Gardens, the Central Station and City Hall. Axelborg, the former agricultural banks headquarter ooze of atmosphere. Axelborg is a monumental building completed after World War I in 1920. Back then, it was the second largest secular building in all of Copenhagen with only the Parliament, Christiansborg, being larger.Axelborg has 6 floors of offices with beautiful high ceilings and at the top of the building there is a distinctive tower. Under the tower you find the impressive rotunda in which the upper floors are shaped in a circular manner, withe the lower balconies being oval shaped. Remarkable but to my mind dangerours is an old elevator system called ¬タワpater noster¬タン. These are open boxed that move up and down and you kind of hop into it at the right moment. It does gives you a very unique experience as well as a good impression of what it was like in the building in the old days.
