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

Plate millesim 2022

Three islets set on a lake and an impressive red brick castle decorated with sandstone ornaments. Frédériksborg slot was built between 1600 and 1620 at the request of Christian IV, on the bases of an old manor house. This architectural masterpiece, in Dutch Renaissance style, became a symbol of the power of the Danish monarchy. The kings were crowned in the Palatine Chapel, which is grandiose with its ebony and marquetry decoration. The organ (1610) by Compelius and the many coats of arms of the great European families are worthy of note. The castle, abandoned in favour of the more convenient Fredensborg (9 km away), was devastated by fire in 1859. Fortunately, Carl Jacobsen financed most of its restoration, notably that of the Grand Salon located above the chapel (superb carved wooden ceiling, impressive marble fireplace, musicians' gallery). He also took care of the furnishing of the rooms with period furniture.

Since 1882, the National History Museum has been tracing 500 years of Danish political life from the 16th century to the present day. This department, linked to the Carlsberg Foundation, houses the royal collections (furniture, paintings, objects) spread over three floors of the King's wing and the Princess's wing and exhibits the most important collection of portraits in Denmark. Note several paintings by Hyacinthe Rigaud, the famous painter from Versailles. Finally, the passage through the gardens will bring the vegetal touch to this visit.

Très grand château à découvrir
Château magnifique situé à l'extérieur de Copenhague mais très facile d'accès par le train (S-tog) et un court trajet en autobus à partir de la gare de Hillerød. L'intérieur est magnifiquement meublé des meubles d'antan, le bâtiment impressionne autant de l'intérieur que de l'extérieur. Un très beau jardin est situé à l'arrière du château.

Superbe château qui m'a rappelé Versailles par certains côtés (en plus petit quand même)
Visite des plus agréables avec beau temps.
Belles collections.
La chapelle est superbe comme de nombreuses salles du château.
Grande promenade dans les jardins.
Petit tour du lac (20 minutes) en bateau.
Notre garçon a pu piloter quelques instants le bateau et repartir avec un diplôme de capitaine danois! :-)
Prévoir une demie journée au moins

Assurément le plus beau château que nous ayons pu visiter au Danemark. Et ceci autant à l'intérieur qu'à l'extérieur.
