4 Christianborg Christiansborg Slot is home to the Parliament, the Supreme Court and the Prime Minister's Department, thus this makes it the centre of power in Denmark. Demonstrations against the proposals of the government always end up in front of Christiansborg, of which one part is open to the public. This is where Bishop Absalon built his castle as far back as Later the Castle of Copenhagen was located here.

7 Considered the most outstanding. When Christiansborg burned down in 1794, the royal family moved to Amalienborg, since then it has been their official residence. The square is dominated by Saly's equestrian statue of Frederik V ( ) which, together with the palace buildings, forms a breathtaking architectural ensemble. Lovers of the royal family flock to the square once a year to celebrate Queen Margrethe's birthday. Considered the most outstanding.

9 Rosenborg castle Rosenborg Castle was built by Christian IV ( ) in Renaissance style. The castle has an almost fairytale-like location in Kongens Have. Rosenborg was originally a country mansion outside the walls of the city. The castle with its copper roof is surrounded by moats, and just outside the castle you'll find a very beautiful rose garden.

38 The Old Town, Århus In the Old Town, people and history live and breathe. The Old Town urban museum's 75 historical buildings, period interiors, animals and people give visitors ample opportunity to make themselves feel that they are back in a Danish market several centuries ago. When the gossipy shoemaker's wife is sitting on the bench telling about her ill husband and being listened to attentively and sympathetically by two elderly women visiting the museum - then humanity has bridged a time-gap of a couple of centuries and allowed the past and the present to touch.

45 this resulted in the river not being used anymore. During the 1930s motoring had developed slowly but surely, and Århus had turned into a large town. The City of Århus covered the river in order to make it a road. In the 1990s debates began about a car-free city centre. In this connection it was obvious to re- open the river. So it was re-opened in two parts in 1996 and in this resulted in the river not being used anymore. During the 1930s motoring had developed slowly but surely, and Århus had turned into a large town.
