In addition to seeing some things that we saw on our last trip, there were more things to see that we missed last time. Like:
Christiansborg Palace. This building houses the Prime Ministers Office, and is where the Queen holds state affairs, such as banquets, state dinners, and audiences.
The King's Staircase:
Even YS thought it was pretty impressive.
Tapestries depicting Danish Fairy Tales
The balcony where the Royal Family greet their public:
Painting depicting the Danish Flag falling from the sky in 1219.
The Throne Room
The old dining room; no longer used for state dinners.
The Queen's Stairway leads to the Prime Minister's Office.
The Queen's Library:
We also wandered through the Royal Stables, but the horses were out enjoying the weather.
We were there on "Flag Day":
I liked how even the buses had flags on them.
We took a tour inside the Town Center.
The area where friends and family wait during a wedding:
The Wedding Room
Front staircase. These are the stairs the Queen takes.
This dog protects the lawmakers from harm.
Wall at the top of a staircase.
The glass ceiling over the Great Hall.
The Great Hall
The Queen's Chair
Painting on the wall at the top of a staircase
If you look at the corner of the building, you can see a dog peeing. Supposedly that was the artist's way of getting back at the people who made him repaint the piece because he didn't have bricks on the building.
The room where the City Council conducts business:
I was amazed at how beautiful the Town Hall was. It was as grand as some of the palaces/castles we had already seen.
This post is already a lot longer than I had expected, so I'll stop here. Come back on Monday for (maybe) the last post!
