Royal Arena celebrates topping-out ceremony


Over the summer, the Royal Arena reached an important milestone, as the enormous trusses were mounted on its roof. Today Copenhagen's new arena, designed by 3XN, celebrates the topping-out ceremony.

The topping-out ceremony takes Copenhagen a significant step closer to realizing what is to serve as the setting for many great cultural and sport events in the future. Royal Arena is a multi-purpose arena that will offer audiences the best experiences in the field of culture, music and sports. Visitors will have easy access to the arena and additional nice facilities. At the same time, the arena is equipped with ideal acoustic features - to the delight of the audience and the performers.

Royal Arena will be approximately 38,000 m2 and will host 60 to 80 events per year, with room for up to 15,000 guests.

Construction is expected to be completed in the fall 2016.
