Scenes from The Nutcracker Adorn the Façade
of the Newly Renovated Hotel


Hotel d'Angleterre - Copenhagen
Hotel d'Angleterre, Copenhagen 
Copenhagen - December 4, 2013: The holiday season has officially arrived in Copenhagen with the lighting of the Christmas façade at the newly renovated Hotel d'Angleterre. Adding a festive glow to Kongens Nytorv (The King's Square) for the first time in six years - due to a change in management and closure for renovations in 2011 - the massive Christmas-light display on the hotel's façade features scenes from The Nutcracker, illuminated by a multi-story curtain of light crafted from thousands of clear bulbs.

The lighting of the d'Angleterre's façade is a long-held practice that traditionally kicks off Christmas in Copenhagen. Orchestrated by The Remmen Foundation (owners of the hotel) and attended by more than 1,000 spectators, this year's much-anticipated lighting ceremony featured The Royal Guards' Music Corps, which performed a repertoire of Christmas carols and holiday classics.  


"For many people, the Christmas decorations on the façade of the Hotel d'Angleterre are an integral part of Copenhagen's holiday spirit. It is with great joy that we are able to return the Christmas spirit to the Kings Square. It is the Remmen Foundation's Christmas present to Copenhagen," said Else Marie Remmen, Chairwoman of The Remmen Foundation.

About Hotel d'Angleterre:
Located on Copenhagen's Kongens Nytorv (The King's Square), Hotel d'Angleterre has long been the city's address of choice for royalty, statesmen and the illustrious. The d'Angleterre has had an extremely colorful history, from its origins as a restaurant opened in 1755 by Jean Marchal, to its transformation into the d'Angleterre in 1795, the opening of the current building in 1875 and its rebuilding just before World War I. After a short change in ownership, The Remmen Foundation once again re-acquired and closed the storied hotel in 2011. The hotel reopened May 2013, revealing the results of massive remodeling and re-imagining: a lighter and more elegant color palette; 90 spacious rooms & suites (created from the existing 123 rooms); new restaurant Marchal helmed by Michelin-rated Ronny Emborg; Amazing Space Scandinavian spa; and Balthazar, Denmark's first Champagne bar.
