Marselisborg castle

The 18th-century country house was originally the property of Dutch merchant Gabriel Marselis.

Marselisborg became a royal residence when Prince Christian and his wife, princess Alexandrine were given the Palace in 1898 as a wedding present from the people of Denmark.

Queen Margrethe II was given the palace by her father, King Frederik IX in 1967. Margrethe and Henrik have been using the residence during the summer, at Easter and Christmas.

The palace is surrounded by a 32-acre (130.000 m2) park in traditional English landscape style: large sweeping lawns surrounded by trees, small ponds, shrub-covered slopes, a rose garden and a herb garden.
 

The park and gardens are both open to the public while the Queen and royal family are not in residence. The palace is never open to the public.







Queen Margrethe talks about the castle in this documentary: https://www.dr.dk/tv/se/dronningens-slotte/dronningens-slotte-marselisborg-slot-2#!/
