Christiansborg Castle

(Text from

The present Christiansborg Castle is the third Christiansborg Palace on this particular site. As well as being the seat of the Danish Parliament, the Prime Minister’s department and the Supreme Court, the Palace houses the Royal Reception Rooms which are open for guided tours, as well as the ruins of Bishop Absalon’s Castle from the 12th century and Copenhagen Castle. Christiansborg Palace Church burnt down in 1992, and following extensive refurbishment was reinaugurated in 1997. Remaining from the first Christiansborg are the Royal Stables. The site now also features the ‘Royal Stables and Coach Museum’, the Theatre Museum in Christian VII’s old court theatre, and the peaceful oasis of the Royal Library Gardens.
