Fredensborg Palace

Fredensborg Palace was built in the beginning of the 18th Century. The image of an Italian country villa was on the drawing board when Frederick IV began construction on his Baroque palace. The king wanted to create a haven where his family life could flourish. This Baroque masterpiece took seven years to complete, and during this time the Gardens were also planted. When Frederick IV died, his son Christian VI pulled down wings of the palace and erected new ones, which he, albeit, generally never made use of. It was only when Christian IX came to the throne that the palace was used for the purpose for which it was built. In the summer months, Christian IX and his queen Louise's 6 children, their children's spouses and 36 grandchildren flocked to Fredensborg Palace. Laughter and the trip-trap of tiny feet echoed in the palace halls, and members of the Danish Royal Family would spend time playing in the Gardens. Ever since those happy days, the Danish Royal Family has been moving into the palace for the summer months, giving the youngest members of the family a trove of carefree childhood memories to treasure. The Royal Couple use the palace for three months in the spring and three months in the autumn. They celebrate weddings, silver wedding anniversaries and birthdays at the palace. Fredensborg also provides a setting for Her Majesty to carry out her official duties. She receives heads of state and ambassadors who submit their credentials to her at the palace. In the summer, Crown Prince Frederick and Crown Princess Mary use the palace as a summer residence. They have their own residential quarters in the Chancellery House. The expansive Baroque palace Gardens are open to the public all year round. The palace and the Private Gardens are open for guided tours from July 1st to August 7th.

This 18th century baroque palace is the queen's summer home. You can view it outside but there are guards barring entry or a closer look.
The Gardens are among Denmark's largest.
If you are in the area then it is worth a short stop, otherwise skip it.

Have visited this small and very intimate falconry for many years, and is always happy and uplifted seeing the close ties can be distinguished between the falconer and the birds.

The most beautiful golf course in North Sealand. 18 holes in beautiful nature close to Fredensborg Castle, the summer residence of the royal family, that now and again takes a walk on the course.

Dejlig smuk velholdt bane. En del vand i spil. Hensigtsmæssigt layout med kort afstand mellem hullerne.
Restauranten har god mad til meget fornuftige priser. 69,- for dagens ret.
Klart besøget værd.

Baerhaven

Reviewed By jens h - Copenhagen, Denmark

Skønt sted. Dejligt afvekslende landskab med udsigt til Esrum Sø. Afhængig af årstiden mulighed for selv-pluk af mange forskellige bær. Jeg var der i hindbær sæson og plukkede let næsten 1 kg hindbær, og kunne også have plukket lidt kirsebær, blommer og blåbær. God service og vejledning. Man betaler entre, som dækker adgang til haven og det man spiser undervejs. Tag dig god tid. Det er et dejlig fredeligt sted og man skal tage sig tid til at nyde stedet i fred og ro mens man plukker bær.
