Description: Christiansborg Palace on Slotsholmen in Copenhagen was built for the country's three supreme powers: the royal power, the legislative power, and the judicial power. The Christiansborg Palace is the only building in the world to have all three supreme powers in one.

The premises of the Royal Family, mainly The Royal Reception Rooms, make up only a small part of the palace complex. The Danish Parliament has the majority of the palace's rooms at its disposal, while the Prime Minister's Office and the Supreme Court are also found within the palace. Besides the Reception Rooms in the palace's north wing, the Chapel and the bulk of the Riding Ground Complex are available to the Royal Family.

As a result of two serious fires in 1794 and 1884, the palace complex bears testimony to three eras of Danish architecture.

The main palace from 1928 in the historicist Neo-baroque style is the third Christiansborg on the site. The Chapel is from the second neoclassical Christiansborg from the 1800s, and the Showgrounds survive from the first, luxurious baroque palace of the 1700s.

In the Riding Ground Complex, you can visit the Theatre Museum and The Royal Stables.

Beneath Christiansborg visitors can see the ruins of two even older buildings on the site, namely Absalon's Castle and Copenhagen Castle.

Immediately adjacent to Christiansborg Castle are The Royal Library Gardens.
