Geocache Description:


Fredensborg Palace and Palace Gardens

Fredensborg Palace at Lake Esrum enjoys a special status among Danish palaces as the royal couple's most used residence.
Today its the home of the Crown Prince and Crown Princess of Denmark

The beautiful 18th century baroque palace is often the venue for important official state visits and events in the Royal Family.
The extensive palace and grounds came into being gradually during the 18th century at the hands of the finest Danish architects of the age.
It is typical of the French-inspired Baroque style that the palace forms an architectural whole with the surrounding gardens.

Fredensborg Palace Gardens are among Denmark's largest historical gardens. The long, straight avenues which extend from the castle in a star-shaped pattern are a feature of the gardens' original French Baroque style.
The avenues were recreated in the 1970s to 1990s as a Danish example of the grand style known from Versailles in Paris.
Between the avenues lie large wooded areas with winding pathways from the end of the 18th century when, all baroque gardens were converted to the Romantic style.
A special attraction in the gardens is the baroque Nordmandsdalen (Norwegian Valley) with some 70 sculptures of Norwegian and Faroese farmers and fishermen.
This was reopened in September 2002 after major restoration work.

The area of the gardens nearest to the palace is reserved for the Royal Family, but is normally open to the public in July. Here one can visit the kitchen gardens, which supply fresh vegetables for the Royal household, and a modern orangery, which was opened in 1995.

To find the cache, You have to take a trip round the garden.
I would have liked to make the trip even longer, but, instead I will encourage You to explore this garden by your self.
Please notice that the garden is closed between 22.00 & 06.00

Fredensborg Slot og Slotshave
Fredensborg Slot ved Esrum Sø har særstatus blandt de danske slotte som regentparrets mest benyttede residens.
I dag er Fredensborg Slot hjem for Kronprinsen og Kronprinsessen af Danmark

Det smukke 1700-tals barokslot danner ofte rammen om større officielle statsbesøg og familiebegivenheder i kongefamilien.

Det vidtforgrenede slotsanlæg er opstået trinvis gennem 1700-tallet under medvirken af datidens bedste danske arkitekter.
Typisk for den franskinspirerede barokstil indgår slottet i en arkitektonisk helhed med den omgivende have.

Fredensborg Slotshave er et af Danmarks største historiske haveanlæg. De lange lige alléer, som udgår fra slottet i stjerneform, er et træk fra havens oprindelige franske barokstil.
Alléerne blev genskabt i 1970'erne til 1990'erne som et dansk eksempel på den pompøse stil, som kendes fra Versailles ved Paris.
Imellem alléerne er der store skovpartier med slyngede stier fra slutningen af 1700-tallet, hvor stort set alle barokhaver skulle omlægges til romantisk stil.

En særlig attraktion i haven er barokanlægget Nordmandsdalen med ca. 70 skulpturer af norske og færøske bønder og fiskere. Anlægget blev genindviet efter omfattende restaurering i september 2002.

Den del af haveanlægget, som ligger nærmest slottet, er reserveret den kongelige familie men åbnes normalt for publikum i juli måned. Her kan man bl.a. besøge urtehaven, som leverer friske grøntsager til den kongelige husholdning, og et moderne orangeri, som blev indviet i 1995.

For at finde cachen skal du på en lille rundtur i haven. Jeg ville gerne have lavet turen længere, men jeg vil hellere opfordre dig, til selv at udforske denne skønne have.
Vær venligst opmærksom på at haven er lukket mellem 22.00 & 06.00
