    We are in Denmark

    June 6, 2019 in Denmark ⋅ ☀️ 19 °C

    Today, we booked a tour with SPB. Our guide Paul was just outside the ship as promised. The group was small, 20. It is a gorgeous day. Our first stop is in the harbour of The Little Mermaid. Paul gives us the details of the story but it ends badly.
    Our next stop is the canal. This we where we saw the Queens yacht and the special meeting spot for the family to to board the yacht. However the most interesting story here was the army jeeps decorated with vines, flowers and balloons. It is high school grad! The tradition is for the grads who have gone to school together ride to each other’s homes, drinking and partying and finally ending up in the town square to dance around the monument. Sadly this is a picture I missed!
    We next stopped at the Royal Family’s home. It is nice, maybe a little understated but then we weren’t invited inside. After that we put on blue booties and walked through another Royal residence; Christiansborg Palace and is where state dinners and meetings are attended. Magnificent, every room is decorated different but so elegant. The dining room table holds 52 people; imagine setting that table! The history of the Danish royals are depicted everywhere; tapestries, pictures, chandeliers and paintings.

    Christiansborg Palace

    Visited the palace next which was all snowy. First stop was the ruins under the palace of all the previous castles and palaces. It was cool to see the different layers built in to of each other, and logs being used as pipes, with metal bits passing the water between the logs.Read more

    Christiansborg Palace Reception rooms

    January 25, 2019 in Denmark ⋅ ⛅ -2 °C

    Then went into the fancy rooms of the palace that the queen uses when entertaining.

    Got to learn more about their history including one king who went crazy, his physician took control, also took his wife, had a child, then got booted out, but the child then had a child who ended up marrying a later king. Nuts.

    Highlight was the Great hall and the really cool tapestries that go through the history of Denmark.

    Also climbed a tower because I like being high.

    Schloss Christiansborg I

    March 2, 2017 in Denmark ⋅ 🌧 5 °C

    Danach sind wir in die sogenannten "Royal Reception Rooms" des Palastes gegangen.
    Hier ein wenig zur Geschichte des Palastes:

    Schloss Christiansborg (dänisch Christiansborg Slot) liegt auf der Insel Slotsholmen im Zentrum von Kopenhagen und beherbergt die Spitzen der drei Staatsgewalten des Königreichs Dänemark. Es ist weltweit der einzige Repräsentationsbau, der die höchsten Vertreter von Exekutive, Legislative und Judikative unter einem Dach vereint: Neben den Räumen des Parlaments Folketing befinden sich das Oberste Gericht, ein Dienstsitz des Ministerpräsidenten sowie Königliche Empfangsräume im Schloss. Der heutige Bau wurde in der Zeit von 1906 bis 1937 errichtet.Read more

    Schloss Christiansborg II

    March 2, 2017 in Denmark ⋅ 🌧 5 °C

    Um durch das Schloss laufen zu dürfen mussten wir uns lustige blaue Schuhkondome anziehen. Das hatte ich auch noch in keinem Palast, halte ich aber für eine gute Idee. Die Teile gab es kostenlos.
    Der Eintritt für das Schloss war in der KopenhagenCard inklusive. Ansonsten wäre der Eintritt 90 Kronen = 12 € gewesen.

    Schloss Christiansborg III

    March 2, 2017 in Denmark ⋅ ⛅ 5 °C

    Abschließend kann ich sagen, dass mir das Schloss von innen ganz gute gefallen hat, teilweise etwas zu modern für meinen Geschmack, besonders der eine gruselige Teppich.

    Es war sehr angenehm, dass es total leer war, kaum Touristen, außer in der Bibliothek, aber da war auch gerade eine Führung.

    Im Shop habe ich mir natürlich noch was gekauft, unter anderem ein Guidebook auf deutsch.

    Danach wollten wir eigentlich noch in die Schlosskirche, aber die war zu und hat auch nur spezielle Öffnungszeiten. Die königliche Küche und die Ställe wären auch noch zu besichtigen gewesen, aber das hat uns nicht interessiert.
