Frederiksberg Palace was constructed during the period 1700-1735, serving as the royal family’s summer residence for a period up to the mid-1800s. Since 1869, the palace has been used as the base of the Danish Military Academy. The palace and adjacent Frederiksberg Palace Chapel, contains imposing stucco work, ceiling paintings, an elegant marble bathroom with secret access staircase and the princesses’ pancake kitchen etc.
Frederiksberg Gardens and Søndermarken form one of the many gardens which we owe to Frederik IV. He was as important to the landscape gardening of the early 18th century as Christian IV was to architecture one hundred years before.
