Royal Reception Rooms in Christiansborg Palace

The royal family do not live in Christiansborg palace. It is used for state occasions and houses the parliament, supreme court, and prime minister. The palace has burned twice. The current palace, completed in 1928, is the Queen’s working palace. The royal apartments were never occupied and were turned over to the government.

Oh my, these Danish palaces are mighty stylish. Completely different from Italian style but gorgeous all the same. To think of it that I roamed around Denmark for a week with a busload of Slovenian students as a journalist, including Aarhus, and don’t remember much at all. It’s been some twenty years since though.

I am a bit addicted to palaces and churches. 🙂 And I do love over the top decor. I don’t imagine you had much time to just “see” when you were with students.
