Photographer's Note

This is without any kind of competition the most photographed subject in my hometown of Hillerød. Every year thousands of tourists visit this beautiful castle and the surrounding gardens.

Frederiksborg Castle was built by Christian 4th in 1600-century early decades and is the largest Renaissance castle in Scandinavia. The new building should emphasize and strengthen King Christian's position as a powerful European monarch. Thus the palace is richly decorated with symbolic and decorative elements such as the impressive Neptune Fountain and the marble gallery.
 
Since 1878, Frederiksborg Castle has been home to the National History Museum, which tells 500 years of history of Denmark through its collection of portraits, history paintings, furniture and decorative arts. The museum was established by Carlsberg founder JC Jacobsen, and has since been an independent department of the Carlsberg Foundation.

I have tried out an alternative view of the castle from the garden, as TE already contains a wealth of other images from Frederiksborg.
