Visit a coal crane that has been re-envisioned. During Open House, you can experience THEKRANE, a spectacular hotel offering a view of Copenhagen’s transformed north harbor district, Nordhavn. Enjoy a stylish aesthetic where industrial history meets Danish design.

On the edge of Nordhavn lies a hotel that’s different from anything you’ve ever known. After all, how often do you get a chance to sleep in the top of a crane? Marking both the industrial history and the remarkable transformation of the area, THEKRANE is a visionary hotel, spa and meeting venue.

It is the result of a collaboration between architect Mads Møller from Arcgency and owner Klaus Kastbjerg, who is also behind another Nordhavn establishment, The Silo restaurant. Together, they have achieved an impeccable aesthetic – at once raw and refined.

Utilizes the Entire Structure

The old coal crane has been transformed and every inch has been utilized. As a result, THEKRANE comprises a multi-level structure that occupies everything from the foundation to the arm of the crane. The reception area is on the ground level, while the other levels offer meeting spaces, a spa and a terrace. At the very top is a hotel room with a luxurious lounge and terrace that can also be booked as an exclusive meeting space.

Black as Coal

Leather, wood and steel are key elements in the decor, paying tribute to the industrial past while giving a nod to Danish minimalism. The color black is also a recurring theme, in reference to the coal that the crane once lifted on to and off of the quay. At the same time, the interior provides a tranquil framework for enjoying the breathtaking views of Copenhagen and the sea.

During Open House, you have a chance to explore this unconventional location, enjoy the spectacular views and experience the special atmosphere that arises when industrialism and Danish design meet.
