Frederiksberg Palace

Take a walk in the past

Frederiksberg Palace lies on top of Frederiksberg Hill overlooking the beautiful Frederiksberg Garden in the Copenhagen district of Frederiksberg.

The palace dates back to the early 1700s and is inspired by the Italian style at the time.

King Frederik 4 used Frederiksberg Palace as a summer palace, while King Christian 6 lived there permanently, while Christiansborg Palace was completed.

King Christian 7 was born at Christiansborg Palace on 29 January 1749 and lived in the first half of his life at Christiansborg with his young wife Queen Caroline Mathilde.

In 1768 Queen Caroline Mathilde gave birth to the king's son, the future King Frederik 6. The royal family left Frederiksberg Palace in 1852. In 1869 the Royal Danish Army Officers Academy moved in.

There are guided tours at Frederiksberg Castle on the last Saturday of each month. You can visit Frederiksberg Castle's website for more information about guided tours for groups.
