Frederiksborg Organ
#88 - Friday, March 31, 2017

The chapel is one of the most well preserved parts of the castle that managed to escape the fire of 1859. The organ, built by Esajas Compenius in 1610, has some of the most beautiful artwork I have ever witnessed to date.

Frederiksborg Castle
#87 - Friday, March 31, 2017

Frederiksborg castle was the royal residence and birthplace of Christian IV, King of Denmark, during the early 17th century. In 1859, the castle was rebuilt during a serious fire. Very little could be saved, since the first item that was attempted to be saved was the grand piano, which got stuck in the door.
