The Embassy of the United States to Denmark is the diplomatic mission of the United States in Denmark. The building is located on Dag Hammarskjölds Allé, in Indre Østerbro, Copenhagen, and it was opened in May 1954. The post of U.S. Ambassador to Denmark is currently held by Rufus Gifford, the former finance director of President Barack Obama's re-election campaign. The embassy also oversees American interests in Greenland.



Formal relations began between the two countries began in 1801, and the first American legation in Denmark opened in 1827. Since then, the American diplomatic mission has remained opened and functioning in Copenhagen except between 1941 and 1945 during World War II. The legation was raised to embassy status shortly after the war, in 1947, with the arrival of Ambassador Josiah Marvel, Jr. The current building, located in central Copenhagen was designed by two American architects, Ralph Rapson of MIT and John Van der Muelen of the University of Chicago, and it formally opened on May 27, 1954.
