Restored audience chamber at Frederiksborg Castle reopens

The restoration took four years and cost over 23 million kroner

The audience chamber at Frederiksborg Castle in Hillerød reopens tomorrow after four years of renovation work.

The renaissance-baroque hall was built for King Christian V in the 1680s.

The restoration was made possible thanks to a donation of 23.5 million kroner from the AP Møller Foundation.

“By restoring the paintings and the expressive stucco ceilings and interior of the chamber, we can emphasise the unique cultural and architectural value of Frederiksborg Castle,” stated Bertel Haarder, the culture minister.

The National History Museum at Fredensborg Castle co-operated on the restoration work of the audience chamber, and it is marking the reopening with a special exhibition, ‘Audience with Christian V’, which includes artefacts such as the original cloak worn by the king during his coronation.
