the world map room is also where Frederik has been pictured holding meetings.

The Royal Lifeguard turned out in arms today around noon.

An alarm went out and according to the standard procedure the sentries lowered their rifles to the ready position.
A patrol was sent to the location of the alarm, with arms at the ready, to investigate. At the same time other guardsmen surrounded and secured the mansion.

It turned out to be a false alarm. A motion sensor apparently went off when a fireengine passed.

See the dramatic photos here: https://www.bt.dk/krimi/alarm-ved-am...k-deres-vaaben

Does Amalienborg has the panoramic view on an industrial site?

Have to say its not the most majestic of views from that angle but if I remember rightly isn't there an opera house or something over the water?

The first photo? That one with the view on four huge chimneys of an industrial site?

They have a view across the harbor and the Opera House on the other side, but of course that also includes harbor installations.

The Amalienborg side of the harbor is very picturesque, the other side down to the Opera House less so.
But try imagine how it looked a 100 years ago!

Keep in mind that Amalienborg was never supposed to be a palace, It's four city mansions in downtown Copenhagen where there is lots of activity.
Fredensborg on the other hand is more like a "proper palace".

Can anyone (I,m thinking...Muhler) provide more information about Christian IX's palace, the queen's residence in Copenhagen? Are there informations on how the rooms are disposed and so on?

How about QMII herself telling about her home in a documentary?

Look here: http://www.theroyalforums.com/forums...ml#post1869490

This was one episode in a documentary covering Amalienborg, Fredensborg, GrŚsten and Marselisborg.
It's well covered in the general residences thread.
Happy viewing.

Muhler, as always, thank you very much, I understand that by being the queen's private home it would naturally be less open to the public eye, but still I wonder about where are kept her art material, dining room, cigarette corner...(which should be the whole of the house, thinking better), these things. Take care!

The snowy Amalienborg!!!

Tomorrow, it is 225 years since Amalienborg became a royal residence. Since 1794 and precisely eight Kings and one reigning Queen

Palace show us a beautiful watch at Amalienborg:

"Last night we went from normal to summer time, and at Amalienborg, the over 100 historical clocks have therefore also been put forward one hour.
In Christian VII's Palace, this special waterfall is one of the few objects saved under Christiansborg Castle's first fire in 1794. The watch consists of a mechanical theater box, where a harvest scene takes place surrounded by a large waterfall. The watch was built in the 1770s and still works today. "

https://www.instagram.com/p/BvqYL8TAQ8l/


A video back October 2016 as a watchmaker has passed all the watches, to ensure that the watches continue ticking on time.

Thanks, Eya.

Fortunately it seems each EU country can soon decide for themselves whether they want to switch to summertime or not.
Here in DK the mood is to drop summertime. - Better for the old clocks too.

Tonight the Liberation of Denmark in 1945 is marked.

It was around 20.00 or so in the evening so dusk was about to set in when people tuned in to the Danish news services from BB.
It was strictly illegal but everyone did it, especially then towards the end of the war.
The usually news were read up, when suddenly silence... The news reader resumed by telling that a special message had just come in. The HQ of Field Marshall Montgomery had just announced that the German troops in Northwest Germany, the Netherlands and Denmark have surrendered
The message was repeated, but few, except the members of the Resistance, heard much more.
Because then the special bulletins came streaming out of the radio: "Gerda's coffee-cup is broken." - "Hansen has a new dog." - "Louise use curlers." And so on.
Coded messages for the Resistance.
But within minutes the streets were flooded with jubilant Danes.

The German troops quietly retreated to their barracks. They made it. They survived.

The surrender was actually formally to take place the next day the 5th May and that is the official Liberation Day, and a flag day.
But tonight the Liberation Message is marked.

It is marked by placing two lit candles in the windows.
https://www.kristendom.dk/sites/defa...1517996452.jpg

But it's many years ago and fewer put candles in the windows anymore. Or rather they do, but it's not a marking of the Liberation, but rather a normal thing as a consequence of our obsession with candles here in DK.

But at Amalienborg and other royal residences, like Fredensborg, this night is very much still marked as you can see here:
https://www.kristendom.dk/sites/defa...1525354211.jpg

Also elsewhere there are a local traditions in connection with this evening, Especially perhaps in garrison towns and Southern Jutland, where it is now just as much a communal tradition as marking the Liberation.

Thanks Muhler, too often we forget that we are the candle holders and the storytellers relating what our parents told us to the next generation and the generation that follows.

If we forget or can't be bothered we betray a generation that gave us the light we live in today. It is our responsibility to keep them and their stories alive for as we know, those who fail to learn from history are condemned to repeat it.

Strangely enough there will be many children who ask their grandparents "why two candles grandpa?" And the story can be told.
