Frederiksborg Slot - Copenhagen, Denmark


Carlberg Brewery the end of day 1 sightseeing and the start to  day 2 started at Frederiksborg Castle/Palace - huge, I mean really huge place unlike Amalienborg Palace. So.......you walk and walk all the way through the gorgeous garden to the castle while admiring the splendor of it.










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




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













Up next: Kronborg Castle.
