Museum of National History at Frederiksborg Castle

Picturesquely located on the banks of the castle lake, lies Frederiksborg Castel and its Baroque Garden. This unique Renaissance castle was built by Christian IV at the beginning of the 17th century, to signify his position as a powerful North European monarch. A terrible fire in 1859 destroyed a great deal of the castle interior. Reconstruction of the castle was financed by national subscriptions and generous private donations. J. C. Jacobsen, founder of the Carlsberg Group brewing company, played an active role in the project and in 1877 he proposed the castle should be the location for a Museum of National History.  The museum records 500 years of Danish history, containing history paintings, portraits, furniture and art manufacture, set in the many halls and rooms of the castle. There are changing exhibitions, fixed tours on Sundays and seasonal activities for children, as the museum encourages people to engage in the past and put Denmark´s history in perspective.
