Ever wondered what it felt like to be a 17th century king? At Frederiksborg Castle, home of the Danish Museum of National History, you get it. With conservators employed at the museum, specialised in furniture, paintings and textiles, the castle is living proof of life hundreds of years ago. “Several Danish kings lived here. These are people who have shaped Denmark. The exterior walls are the same as back then. The church, the secret passage and the audience chamber hall are as well. The rest is decorated as a museum, so differs somewhat from what it used to look like,” says Emilie Tønnesen from the museum’s communications department.
