Forstanderskapssalen / The Directors' Hall

Capacity: 150 standing / 140 seated persons.

Størrelse: 158 kvm.

The Directors' Hall, with its classic wooden carvings on the walls
and impressive chandeliers hanging from the ceiling, is located on the
building's third floor. For the past hundred years, this was the bank's
most sacrosanct area and, until recently, the walls were covered with
portraits of all the directors in the bank's history. 

The hall is newly renovated and fitted with a full range of technical
equipment for conferences, lectures and large meetings of up to 120
participants, as well as small concerts and performances with modest
rigging requirements. The directors' portraits have gone, but we have
retained the wooden carvings and chandeliers and added a Steinway C
grand piano.
