  • Royals and Prime Minister mourn loss of national heritage

    The Danish Royal Family reacts via Instagram on the fire at Boersen.

    “This morning we woke up to a sad sight, when smoke over Copenhagen’s roof bore witness to the devastating fire at Boersen. An important part of
    our architectural cultural heritage was and continues to be in flames.,” writes King Frederik and express gratitude towards all people who have been helping fighting the fire.

    Jakob Engel-Schmidt, Danish Culture minister, posted on X that he was terrified by the images of Boersen this morning.

    “400 years of Danish cultural heritage in flames.”

    He is touched to see how people are doing everything they can.

    “How touching it is to see how employees at Boersen, good people from the emergency services and
    passing Copenhageners work together to rescue art treasures and iconic images from the burning building.

    Gratitude towards all fighting the fire

    Minister of Justice, Peter Hummelgaard, posts on X:

    “Thank you to our skilled firefighters, police officers and paramedics who are currently fighting a fierce battle against fire and inferno to save lives and our
    historical heritage.

    Politician Jan E. Jørgensen, from Venstre, tells TV2 that he is shocked about the fire.

    “It’s a national disaster. I think we have to rebuild
    it, I don’t know how the insurance are, but I think we must help,” Jørgensen says.

    Politician Søren Espersen, from Danmarksdemokraterne, told TV2 that buildings like Børsen are irreplaceable while he holds his tears.

    Prime Minister Mette Frederiksen writes to Ritzau that a piece of Danish history is on fire.

    “The images are horrible. Boersen is one of the most iconic buildings of Copenhagen. The symbol
    of 400 years of companies. It’s unreplaceable cultural heritage, it hurts to see it.”
