The Danish pavilion was recognisable from afar by its thrice-repeated name at the top of a slim 30-metre tower.

A small staircase of Greenlandic marble allowed visitors to reach the delicately decorated hall with its Tourism section.

A series of landings allowed each visitor to enter a sort of cabin where porcelain from the Copenhagen Manufactory, ceramics, glassware, the famous Danish silverware, fabrics and furniture were on display.

At the top of the staircase, the "Denmark Room" offered a first view of Denmark and its large colony, Greenland.

Another room of the same size gave an introduction to the many Danish industries.
