Frederiksborg Slot - Copenhagen, Denmark


The finale of our day 1 sightseeing was in Carlberg Brewery, thereafter, to the hotel for a good night sleep. Day 2 next morning was the usual start, breakfast and then on the road again, prior to arriving in Frederiksborg Castle/Palace. Really huge, I mean a really huge area unlike Amalienborg Palace. Upon stepping foot at the entrance, what else can it be except walk and walk, all the way through the gorgeous garden till where the castle is located.










Denmark's Museum of National History has been housed at this castle since 1878. Built at the time of Christian IV (1588-1648) and restored after a fire in 1859, and museum was founded by brewer J.C. Jacobsen as a separate department of Carlsberg Foundation.




In addition to the magnificent rooms such as the Chapel, the Rose, the Audience Chamber and the Great Hall, Museum contains Denmark's most important collection of portraits, historical paintings, and distinguished decorative art. The Chronological Collection on the other hand illustrates Denmark's history from 1500 until the present day and the Audience Chamber was designed and completed in 1680s.  













Up next: Kronborg Castle.
