Petit Futé's opinion on CHRISTIANSBORG CASTLE (CHRISTIANSBORG SLOT)

Vintage plate 2020

The castle has been the centre of power in Denmark since the 12th century. It is located in the heart of the city, on the historic island of Slotsholmen. Today it is the seat of the Danish Parliament, the Folketing, the Ministry of State and the Supreme Court. Part of the premises is used by the Royal Family for official events such as gala dinners and public hearings. Due to the vagaries of history, it was destroyed and rebuilt several times in the course of fires. In 1367, again in 1794, which forced the royal family and the court to move to Amalienborg, and finally in 1884. In the meantime, it was demolished for the pleasure of Christian VI who wanted a more comfortable home,

The site as it stands today was completed in 1928. The walls are covered with granite, with the exception of the main facade made of pebbles, symbolically donated by 750 communes of the kingdom. All that remains of the first Baroque-style royal castle built in 1730 is the Marble Bridge (leading to the main entrance of Christiansborg), the stables, the carousel and the court theatre. The highlight of the ceremonial rooms is the Knight's Hall with its cycle of tapestries by Bjørn Nørgaard. They were made in France by the Gobelins and Beauvais factories, which had not received a royal commission for a long time! They remain the most important contemporary tapestry order of the 20th century.

The royal kitchens shine with the brilliance of their copper utensils spread around the stoves and other pianos, used to concoct the delights of royal banquets. The most famous recipes are displayed there: bouquetière topping, royal ice cream, etc... Enough to salivate!

The stables, which are still in operation, are home to the white Kladubers horses, introduced from the Czech Republic in 1994 at the request of the Prince Consort. Their specificity: to be born with a black coat that turns completely white afterwards! You will be able to attend their training in the quarry. Inside the marble stalls, the various carriages used by the court are on display.

The theatre is a little gem. Even if the facade and the staircase, a little steep and faded, do not seem very engaging, persevere. A graceful theatre, all in powder pink, exhibits reconstructions of scenographies and costumes. For a snack break, a small tea room and a terrace overlooking the castle's main courtyard await you.

Nous n'avons pas visité l'interieur, on s'est seulement baladé dans la cour, qui vaut le détour. Mais si vous voulez grimper en haut de la tour, c'est gratuit mais la montée se fait par petits groupes, il faut patienter un peu. L'accès ouvrait à partir de 11h pendant le mois de décembre.

A quelques pas du musée national, cet endroit est fabuleux. Possibilités de visiter également les écuries royales avant d'acceder au palais.

A visiter car le Palais vaut le détour
