Artist's Description


In denmark from Helsingør to west is Hillerod, the home of Frederiksborg Slot. This Dutch Renaissance castle sits on three small island on the east side of Lake Slotsk. Parts of the castle date from the 1560-s, while most of the visible structure comes from the 1600-s. Photo shows a shot the main building on the site,. It was built as a royal residence for King Christian IV, and is now known as The Museum of National History. The current building replaced a previous castle erected by Frederick II, and is the largest Renaissance palace in Scandinavia. Around the castle is a large, baroque formal garden. I was there in year 2006 summer with my school students from class 11 a. Picture is done with Nixon D You can experience more than the royal décor when you visit the castle. The National Museum of History’s permanent collection is wide-ranging. It is probably best known for its outstanding collection of portraits – the largest of its kind in Denmark, but it also houses an important collection of history painting. In addition, the museum holds a significant collection of furniture and decorative art as well as a collection of prints and drawings. With its formal avenues of trees and bushes and the cascade and flower beds the Baroque Garden of the castle is a wonderful respite after your visit to the castle. You also have the option to sail on the castle lake. Every Thursday between 13:30 and 14:00 a renaissance style concert is held in the castle church. The Little Mermaid, The Emperors new cloth, The Little Match Girl, The Princess and the Pea, The Steadfast Tin Soldier, The Swineherd and The Ugly Duckling.
