Places of Interest in Copenhagen
This is Copenhagen’s star attraction. Christiansborg Palace is a prominent government building on the islet of Slotsholmen in the heart of the Danish capital. It is the seat of the Danish Parliament (Folketinget), the Danish Prime Minister's Office and the Supreme Court of Denmark. This is also a historical place because it is the site of the oldest fortifications in the city that date back to twelfth century.
Rosenborg Castle is a historical castle located in Copenhagen, Denmark. It was originally built as an extension to Danish king Christian IV’s ambitious architectural project. It was built in the Dutch Renaissance style and has been expanded several times since 1606 AD before evolving into its present condition in the year 1624 AD. Visitors like to pursue its history from its basement wherein the older Danish crown jewels and other royal paraphernalia is kept. Going upwards, you would find a reception hall called the Marble Room and the Knights' Hall with the Coronation Throne. Another impossible to miss eye candies here are the Rosenborg Tapestries and some assorted porcelain designs on the walls.
