🔥 🔥 🔥 ✔ The image above was taken inside Frederiksborg Palace, situated on three islets in the castle lake in Hillerød, north of Copenhagen. This is probably one of the most beautiful palaces we have ever seen exploring the several palaces In Europe. It is enormous, rambling, extravagantly fitted out and full of impressive works of art as it is also a museum.
The highlights for me were the Royal Chapel, the coats of arms (pause and read where some of these came from), the Great Hall, the elaborate gardens and the Fountain of Neptune in the entrance courtyard.
The palace, which is surrounded by the beautiful Frederiksborg Palace Garden, was built in the Dutch Renaissance style at the beginning of the 1600s by King Christian 4.
After a serious fire in 1859, the castle was rebuilt on the basis of old plans and paintings. Thanks to public support and the brewer J. C. Jacobsen, the building and its apartments were fully restored by 1882 when it was reopened to the public as the Danish Museum of National History. Open throughout the year, the museum contains the largest collection of portrait paintings in Denmark. It also provides visitors with an opportunity to visit several of the castle's state rooms including the restored Valdemar Room and Great Hall as well as the Chapel and the Audience Chamber which were both largely spared by the fire and contain sumptuous decorations.
