Queen and Prince Consort live at the Fredensborg Palace for extended
periods of time. And in 2004, the Crown Prince couple took permanent
residence in the Chancellery House. However now they live at
Amalienborg Palace in Copenhagen.
The beautiful Baroque-style
palace is often the setting for important events in the lives of the
Royal Family, such as weddings, anniversaries, and birthdays, and the
Queen also receives Heads of State from all over the world at
The Palace Gardens are among the largest
historical gardens in the country. A typically French Baroque element
are the long broad avenues of trees radiating in a star shape from the
centre of the palace.
The part of the garden nearest the
palace, the Reserved Garden, is the Royal Family's private area.
However, in July, the Reserved Garden, as well as the Palace itself,
the Vegetable Garden, and the Orangery are open to the public.
Free admission to the Palace Garden all year round. Services are frequently held in the Chapel on Sundays and holidays.
