What Can We do While We are In Frederiksberg?

Apart from your wedding ceremony in Frederiksberg’s town hall there are some lovely things to do in the town, so you can make it a little honeymoon trip! 🙂

1. Frederiksberg Gardens 📍

A beautiful palace built by King Frederik IV in 1703 on top of Frederiksberg Hill. 

Built in the Baroque style and inspired by Italian architecture, the palace offers stunning views of the Frederiksberg Gardens. 

It was used by the Royal Family as a summer residence until 1852 when the Royal Danish Officers Academy officially moved in. 

The Palace now offers guided tours every last Saturday of the month, so if you’re in Frederiksberg on that day it’s definitely worth seeing. 

2. Frederiksberg Palace 📍

When taking a stroll around the peaceful old town you can visit this charming church and the icon of Store Heddinge.

Built at the beginning of the 13th century it was hit by lightning in the 1670s, after which the octagon had to be renovated.

Then the church was thoroughly restored in 1853, obtaining its current form.

Stevns Klint – this spectacular cliff, apart from being a UNESCO World Heritage site, is a reminder of the Earth’s dramatic history, when 66 million years ago an asteroid hit the earth, causing half of all animal and plant life to go extinct.

Now it’s a truly breathtaking wonder of nature!

You can have a lovely, romantic walk on the beach alongside this 40 metre high white cliff.

3. The Cisterns📍

A truly unique underground space and exhibition venue. 

Originally this massive space underneath Søndermarken park was a water reservoir filled with 16 million litres of drinking water.

Today the water’s gone and this mysterious space holds exciting exhibitions and events. 

The Cisterns has a unique atmosphere and its impressive architecture resembles something between dark catacombs and a majestic cathedral. 

If you’re in Frederiksberg for a few days make sure to check out its events schedule!

The History of Frederiksberg

Although Frederiksberg is an independent municipality, and has its own mayor, it forms part of the City of Copenhagen.  

The area of Frederiksberg has been inhabited since the Bronze Age, but the history of Frederiksberg as a town started on 2nd June 1651.

On that day King Frederik III gave the rights to settle to 20 Danish-Dutch peasants, founding the town which he called Ny Amager (New Amager). 

In 1697 most of the town burnt down which resulted in the peasants not being able to pay taxes and the town reverted to the Royal Family. 

In 1700 King Frederik IV decided to build a palace on top of a hill in the town.

When the palace was finished in 1703 the king called it Frederichs Berg and the town, rebuilt at the foot of the hill, changed its name to Frederiksberg.

The town became popular among wealthy people from Copenhagen who bought local properties and used them as country houses. 

Frederiksberg started changing from a farming community to a posh merchant town with good restaurants; inviting wealthy citizens of Copenhagen to leave the busy city and enjoy the tranquil open land. 

When, in 1852, the Danish Parliament allowed permanent construction outside the walls of Copenhagen city, Frederiksberg was filled with residential buildings and its population grew extremely fast.

Nowadays Frederiksberg consists mainly of cosy streets filled with residential houses and impressive parks.
