BLOX is Denmark’s world of architecture, design and new ideas. The building is designed by the world-famous Dutch firm OMA under the leadership of Partner/Director Ellen van Loon.

With the harbor bus or harbor tour boat, get off at the Royal Danish Library.

If you’re coming by car, you can park in BLOX’s fully automatic paid parking garage with 350 parking spaces. The entrance is on Vester Voldgade. See more here

The trip from Copenhagen Airport takes about 20 minutes by car and 30 minutes with public transportation.
