Christian IV's 17th-century summer palace sprouts like a Renaissance mirage in the center of the city, its red-brick turrets and towers rising above an oasis of parkland, gardens, hedgerows, and a moat with swans. Although the palace, like many other Copenhagen landmarks, is currently undergoing renovations, some of the showiest rooms remain open to the public—among them the Winter Room, paneled with Flemish landscapes of the changing seasons, like a lowlands book of hours, and the basement vault, which houses the crown jewels, including a gold goblet balanced on a fierce ivory skull base. The royal portraits hanging everywhere underscore the odd Tweety Bird physiognomy of the early Danish royals—a mixture of bulbous forehead, pursed rosebud lips, and beaked nose, which found its climax in schizophrenic Christian VII's haunted, horsey face.

Closed Mondays from November to April.
