... were built during his reign. Never mind the fact that he lost Denmark 4 wars and reduced Denmark's size by 1/3 as well....
Since it was built, it was renovated and expanded until 1624, which is what it looks like today. It is a beautiful castle, with really pretty gardens. It was very grand, as you'd expect, with also portraits and statues of other Kings, such as the King of England and the King of Sweden of that time. It gave me a sense that ...
... dusk, a city leader gave a speech which was followed by thunderous applause and the fire was lit. The choir (and some in the audience) sang a hymn as she burned and in 5 minutes the witch was history. Apparently, it was originally a pagan ritual which is supposed to scare all of the evil spirits back to Germany. I guess that makes me an evil spirit then. More pictures on Picasa.

TravelPod Member ReviewsFirst Hotel Copenhagen
Good size and comfortable room, but the shower a bit weak
Pleasant building and surroundings
Staff are very friendly and helpful
Location is easy for public transport connections with the airport (train then bus) and the city (bus and water bus)
Breakfast is good, but the organisation is hopeless - sometimes they ask for the coupon 3 or 4 times, other days they don't ask for it at all, and the dishes are often left empty for long periods before being refilled.
