History of Christiansborg slot at Copenhagen

This large building houses the Danish power: Parliament, the Prime Minister's Office, the Supreme Court. But one can visit a part of it, in particular the royal reception room where the Queen welcomes the heads of state: it is a very beautiful Renaissance-style room whose walls are covered with tapestries that retrace the history of Denmark; They were carried out in 2000 by Bjorn Norgaard. There are also very interesting ruins in the basements of the present castle: these are the remains of two earlier castles, one of which dates from 1167. The high tower (179 m) is also accessible; It offers a beautiful panorama of the city and hosts a luxury restaurant. If the carriages interest you, the royal stables are waiting for you and if you are passionate about theater, the theater museum is housed in the former Theater de la Cour.
