These places are all nice to look at, but look at the reality ...... you couldn't live in these alone like is the style among the proliteriat.

I found this link for Copenhagen, and seeing 'surfing the web' is so much more convenient than spending the coin to fly to a flat metropolis ....

Does anyone know if Mary or Fred have been to the palace they received as a gift for their marriage from the Queen? Have they ever spent the night there? I forgot what the name was, but I thought it was pretty far south from Coppenhaggen. Thanks! I love this site!

Is it Gråsten carstel you are thinking about ?
If it is i don´t think that the carstel in Gråsten was a weeding gift from the Queen since she dos not owen the carstel.
The only carstel she and prince Henrik owns is Marsellisborg carstel in Aarhus
and Château de Caïx in France.

Lady Cathrine Rose 10-11-2005 07:15 PM

Oh no! I didn't write down the name of the castle that she gave as a gift! I absolutely should have since it always takes me forever when I have to go back through all of there wedding threads! But it was definetly given to them as a gift. That I distinctly remember. Thanks for the help.

I also remember reading that the queen "gave" Gråsten to Fred and Mary for their wedding. Even though she doesn't own the palace, I think it was said that she gave them the right to use the castle as their own, which she can do even though she doesn't privately own the castle.

I remember the Queen spent some time there this summer, but I haven't seen anything about Fred and Mary spending time there yet.

Gråsten Castle was Queen Ingrids, after her death it was passed on to Queen Margrethe.. When the time comes, it will be Frederik and Marys(although state owned, it still is considered theirs, as only they can live there). Mary and Frrderik was their last summer. There are pictures from it. It is a tradtion that the Queen and prince consort live there during the summer, and it is also a tradition that other family members join them e.g. Ex-King Konstantin and Ex-queen Anne-Marie, Joachim, Frederik and all their cousins.. It has been a tradition since late Queen Ingrid made it a tradition to get the family together every summer. Her children and granchildren. I am sure Mary and Frederik will continue this tradition when it is their turn to decide..

Here is an article about the old medieval Danish royal residences. It talks about the history of palace rooms and what they are now used for with the present Queen Margrethe II. Quite interesting.

I have been looking through this thread, and I have some questions:

Grasten, is it private or state owned? Is it used at all at the moment, apart for summer holidays for the entire RF?

Rosenborg is now mosly a museum I believe. It is state owned, but does the RF ever use it?

Frederiksborg: is it state or private property and does the RF ever use it. If they don't what is happening there through the year?

The list above and the Ermitage Lodge are all the palaces that the family is using/can use at the moment or are there more?

Marengo, most of these castle are administered by Slots- og ejendomsstyrelsen (the Palaces and Properties Agency). Here is a link to a map with explanations in English to a number of the palaces you ask about - Slots- og Ejendomsstyrelsen - Map of Castles and Gardens

On the royal family's own website they list the palaces they have at their disposal The Danish Monarchy - Palaces - and the royal yacht. As you can see it also lists the chateau Cayx in France.

The only other properties I can think of right now which are not on your list is the hunting lodge at Trent - which I think was a wedding present to King Frederik and Queen Ingrid. And then of course Kronborg Castle; it is a museum but queen Margrethe gave a party there on occasion of Konstantine's and Anne Marie's silver anniversary. - oh, one more. One the grounds of Frederiksborg Castle (my personal favourite....) is a tiny castle called Badstueslottet - The Bath House. I'm not sure it even has electricity; it has been used on rare occasions to house a hunting party for lunch.

Gråsten was acquired by the Danish state in 1920 - used for judicial/police business, and as a library until 1935 - when it was turned over as a summer residence to the Crown Prince and Princess (Frederik and Ingrid). It is maintained by the Palace and Property organization - unlike Marselisborg, so I would say that it is state owned.

Margrethe use the palace for small parties and other arrangements from time to time - http://www.kristeligt-dagblad.dk/artikel/258390

Frederiksborg Castle houses the Danish National History Museum and is open to the public. As far as I know it isn't regularly in use by the royals.

They also use Christiansborg Palace for events such as the reception after Christian's christening.

Kronborg Castle in Helsingør is also used for various representation. Queen Ingrid used it when she threw Anne-Marie and Constantine's silver-wedding anniversary.

Marengo, if you are near Versailles between November 07 and March 08, you can see some of the silver furniture from Rosenborg http://www.chateauversailles.fr/pdf/..._Furniture.pdf. Rosenborg is undergoing extensive renovations this year (will finish around spring 08) and therefore the furniture can be lent out for the exhibition at Versailles.

Royal Palaces in Denmark
 
Sorry if this is not the best forum to post this, but I am travelling to Copenhagen at the end of April and wondered if any posters could tell me what are the best Royal Palaces to visit. I cannot see them all but would like to see the best ones. I'm an avid reader of this forum & a royal fan. Does anyone have any suggestions?

Moderators please move this to the appropriate forum, if this is not the correct place for my post.

You should make a tour through the Royal Receptions Rooms at Christiansborg and make an Visit to Rosenborg Castle. There is an Room about every King for the Oldenburg-Dynasty and there also are the Crown jewels on Display. Then make an Visit to the Amalieborg Museum where the studies of Christian IX., Frederik VIII., Christian X. and Frederik IX. are displayed. Sometimes there guided tours through parts of Amalienborg. I was there in Summer 2005 and made a guided tour throguh Christian VII. Palais. Then you should visist Roskilde Domkirke, the burial place of the danish Kings. And Frederiksborg Slot, Kronborg Slot. You can also go to Fredensborg but is only open in July for the public but you can got in the Park (but not the one closest to the Casdtle, it is only open in July).

It really doesn't take all that long by train to Roskilde :whistling: It is a pleasant little town, the cathedral isn't all that far from the railway station, and I would say that the cathedral there really is worth a visit for someone interested in the Danish royal family/history.

It's worth to note that tickets to Rosenborg and Amalienborg Palace Museum can be bought so that one ticket covers both museums. :flowers:

When i was in Copenhagen i bought the Copenhagen Card which is avalible for 1 or 3 days. There you get often free entrance in some Attractions and sometimes you the Price reduced.

Other residencies and places connected to the DRF.

The hunting lodge in Trend.

Big overview. The lodge is located in the middle of a forest and yet close to a fjord:
