In the heart of Copenhagen close to Amalienborg Castle sits the charming Odd Fellow Palace (Odd Fellow Palæet). Established between 1752 and 1755, it was once the home of a noble Copenhagen family and more recently it has been home to some exceptionally gorgeous and dreamy Candlelight concerts.
With long-standing links to the royal family, you can expect this place to be pretty spectacular. It’s decorated in the most beautiful Rococo style and the building has been maintained perfectly over its long life, with floors polished to perfection and gorgeous high ceilings that make for the most incredible acoustics. Let us give you a taste of what’s on the Candlelight roster at the stunning building below.

Candlelight: The Best of ABBA
Would it be a crime to pay tribute to some of contemporary music’s most successful pop artists without ABBA in the mix? Perhaps, but we’re not going to find out since the Swedish awesome-foursome are being celebrated at Odd Fellow Palace.
Chart-toppers from 1974 to 1983, as well as in 2021 with their newest album ‘Voyage’, ABBA is one of the best-selling music acts in history. Their upcoming Candlelight tribute will feature classic songs like ‘Waterloo’, which was commemorated as Eurovision’s best song, as well as other hits such as ‘Dancing Queen’, ‘Mamma Mia!’, and ‘Money, Money, Money’.
Candlelight: The Best of Hans Zimmer
Music is 50% of a movie. It gives films a sense of rhythm—a flow—and scenes from our favourite films have been amplified by sound, cementing the plot to characters, and elevating the fantastic, the surreal and the wonder we see.
Famous film scores come alive on stage with this tribute to prolific, award-winning and legendary film composer Hans Zimmer. Be prepared to be drawn in and feel all the feels when the music from films such as Inception, The Lion King, Pearl Harbor, The Dark Knight, Gladiator and Interstellar resound. The highs become more ecstatic, the lows more emotional and the drama becomes all too much through music.
Candlelight: The Best of Joe Hisaishi
Joe Hisaishi is an eight-time winner of the Japanese Academy Award for Best Music. However, he is best known for lending his genius musical talent to Hayao Miyazaki and bringing even more magic, fantasy and feeling to Studio Ghibli’s superb storytelling.
If you’re a fan of beautiful music, then you can’t pass up on an enchanting Candlelight experience featuring the Best of Joe Hisaishi where candlelit evenings blend the fantastic worlds of My Neighbour Totoro, Princess Mononoke, Kiki’s Delivery Service, and Howl’s Moving Castle among others.
Candlelight at Odd Fellow Palace makes for some of Copenhagen’s most stunning experiences. With two performances per night, be enveloped by the glowing light of hundreds of candles and immersed in the sounds of a string quartet reimagining iconic songs from across pop and film history.
The enchanting evenings are unforgettable experiences, perfect for romantic rendezvous, dates with friends and outings with your favourite people.
