Christiansborg Palace is located at Slotsholmen in Copenhagen and has an 800 year-long history as Denmark’s centre of power. The present palace was completed in 1928, but from this place, kings and queens have ruled for centuries. Today, the palace is used by HM The King for official events such as gala banquets and public audiences.

Carlsberg

Carl Jacobsen founded one of the world’s largest private collections of paintings and sculptures. He donated most of the collection to Copenhagen. This collection can be seen at the New Carlsberg Glyptotek in the center of the city.

Today’s collection at the Carlsberg Museum & Business Centre contains a mixture of old and modern art work and is now closed to the public. A special sight is Carlsberg employees 50th anniversary portraits, which adorns the long Gallery Hall.

Ungdomsøen

Ungdomsøen (the Youth Island) unfolds within the walls of the old sea fortress called Middelgrunds Fort. Ungdomsøen is an experience platform, a youth community, and a gathering spot with a wide span of activities. Ungdomsøen (the Youth Island) is built on values from the Guide and Scout movements. Is was a group of Guides and Scouts who got the idea to turn the island into an experience platform and to this day the scouts are still a big part of our DNA. The old sea fortress was built from 1890 to 1894. In 2015 the island was purchased by Nordea-fonden and the A.P. Møller Foundation as a gift for the Danish youth. The island opened for the public in the summer of 2019. Our vision is to be a platform for the most important social movements of the next generations. Young people from all over the country meet here and work on projects, they are dreaming of. Several hundred young people took part in renovating the island and decide what we are to use it for. Today the foundation for everything we do are the thoughts and dreams of the youth. You support all of this when you visit the island.

Ledreborg estate

At the end of Northern Europe’s longest lime avenue, Ledreborg Estate is beautifully hidden in the forest in Zealand’s first National Park, Skjoldungernes Land.

The castle was built in 1740 by Count Johan Ludvig Holstein-Ledreborg, the then head of the Danish Chancellery in the reign of Christian VI and has been the domicile of the Holstein-Ledreborg family for over 280 years. The current owner, Silvia Munro, is the 8th generation at Ledreborg, and she lives at the manor with her family

Ledreborg is traditionally run with agriculture and forestry, but at the same time has formed the framework for small and large events over many years. The historic atmosphere of the buildings combined with the unique surroundings create a perfect interaction to create a memorable setting.
