Carl Jacobsen & Vilhelm Dahlerup





Carl Jacobsen wanted to show that a chimney for an industrial plant could be beautiful in its own right, so he brought in architect Vilhelm Dahlerup and master builder P.S. Beckmann. Their 56 m tall winding chimney features motifs of Egyptian lotus flowers while, on the plinth, replicas of the Chimeras (Gargoyles) from Notre Dame in Paris look out over the city of Copenhagen.

This unique chimney is no longer in use but is listed, and will be a decorative element in the new city.
