Frederiksborg Castle

Frederiksborg Castle is one of Denmark's royal highlights and is located in a unique setting with a beautiful palace garden.

Frederiksborg Castle is a top royal attraction and in the palace, you also find The National Museum of History here.

You will find the palace north of Copenhagen in the city of Hillerød. The beautiful Frederiksborg Palace Garden surrounds the palace, 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; today it stands as in Christian IV's time.


Visit the Frederiksborg Castle Garden

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

King Frederik 2's small Bath House Palace (Badstueslot) is in the garden, which the Royal Family occasionally uses for hunt lunches. Especially worth noting are the royal monograms executed in boxwood and the historical flowers.
