Frederiksborg Palace

Frederiksborg Palace is a top royal attraction in Denmark and in the palace, you will also find The National Museum of History, Denmark`s most impressive castle museum.

You will find the palace north of Copenhagen in the city Hillerød. The palace, which is surrounded by the beautiful Frederiksborg Palace Garden, was built in the Dutch Renaissance style at the beginning of the 1600 century by King Christian IV.

The Museum of National History

At Frederiksborg Palace you can visit the Museum of National History which exhibits the history of Denmark and houses a considerable collection of portraits, historical paintings and modern art.

The Castle Chapel survived when the rest of the palace burnt down in 1859 and today it stands as in Christian IV's time.

The amazing Castle Garden was laid out as a romantic landscaped garden. Here you have to see the baroque style garden, that was recreated in 1996 according to the original drawings by J.C. Krieger from 1725.

Especially worth noting are the royal monograms executed in boxwood, the historical flowers and the festive cascades.

The Palace Garden

In the garden, you will find King Frederik 2's small Bath House Palace (Badstueslot), which is occasionally used by the Royal Family for hunt lunches.
