Dagens Nyheter on 17 April 1912: "The great catastrophe of the Ocean: The Titanic sunk".

DN was founded by Rudolf Wall. The first issue was published on 23 December 1864. The format was completely changed from the classic broadsheet to tabloid on 5 October 2004.

Dagens Nyheter operated from the so-called 'DN-skrapan' (the DN-skyscraper) in Sweden. This was completed in 1964 and was designed by architect Paul Hedqvist. It is 84 metres (276 ft.) tall and has 27 floors, none of which are underground.

In 1996 the entire enterprise moved to its current location on Gjörwellsgatan, which is adjacent to the old ‘DN-skrapan’.[3] The newspaper Expressen is also located in this building.
