Beschrijving

At the Royal Stables at Christiansborg Palace, there have been horses and life in the stables in Copenhagen’s Christiansborg Castle ever since The Royal Stables was inaugurated in 1740.

Showgrounds and the two stables’ wings are the only parts of Christian IV’s grandiose baroque palace having survived several devastating fires.

In its heydays, 250 royal horses were stabled. They were the royal family’s living thrones. The horses carried the royals through the country, they carried them on breathless chases, and when they crossed the enemy lines they were to be seen in war.

Today, there are about 20 horses in the Royal Stables.
When the Queen hosts New Year levées and other large parties at Christiansborg Palace, the beautiful white horses are tightened in front of the Gold carriage in splendid gala harness and they take the queen from Amalienborg to Christiansborg Castle.

Traces of Queens in The Harness Museum.

In the royal stables’ harness museum, stands the former king's and queen's carriages. The finest is the Gold carriage from 1840 with 24karats gold leaf. The oldest carriage is the widow queen Juliane Marie's state carriage from 1778. Caroline Mathilde daring man saddle from the 1700s can also be seen exhibited.

Stuffed royal horses

A special attraction in the stables is Christian V’s spotted favorite horse from the 1600s and Frederik VIIs beloved horse, Pearl. It has just been restored and has regained the full glow of his youth

During a visit in the beautiful historic stables buildings from the 1740s you can explore the important role horses and carriages previously played in the royal house as daily transportation, and also see how horses and gala vehicles are still used today for the ceremonial driving at special events in the royal house.

In the stables you can get close to the nearly 20 horses still housed at Christiansborg, and see the collection of galla coaches and horse-driven carriages. Among the best known is the golden coach that is used in connection with The New Year's Banquet. The coach was built by coachbuilder Henry Fife in 1840 and plated with 24-carat gold leaf.
