The castle in which Christian IV was born is located like a fairytale castle by a lake north of Copenhagen.
The palace of kings, more magnificent than any other. This imposing royal building which was completely burned down, apart from its church, in 1859, was rebuilt in 1884 and is now more beautiful than ever. The Baroque garden was once one of the most important in Scandinavia, and it is again today. After years of refurbishment, it is in full bloom with its arrow-straight terraces, cascades and flower beds. Visiting the palace's 70 rooms is like taking a trip through 500 years of Danish history. A palace has rarely been so splendidly designed and rarely is the effect on visitors so overwhelming. The baroque gardens always have been and still are the most significant in Scandinavia - following years of reconstruction, they are now resplendent with their dead-straight terraces, cascades and flower beds.
