Alberto K is named after Alberto Kappenberger, who managed the hotel for 25 years since its opening in 1960.
It was also Kappenberger who commissioned the architect Arne Jacobsen to design the big hotel project. Arne Jacobsen is one of the twentieth century’s most prominent Danish architects. He enjoys international status and his furniture is in heavy demand both in Denmark and abroad.
The hotel was designed and originally fitted up by Arne Jacobsen, and it can still boast of being a unique design hotel. Such cherished furniture classics as The Swan and The Egg were designed for the Royal Hotel together with the Royal lamp, and these items are still to be found in the hotel.
The restaurant’s furnishing also bears the stamp of the design heritage. You will enjoy your meal with Arne Jacobsen’s cutlery and see examples of his furniture design when you look around the restaurant. This means that in addition to the meal, you are served a big portion of Danish culture when you eat at Alberto K.
