- Christiansborg Palace Chapel was built as an addition to Christiansborg Castle, where the Danish government sits, on the small island of Slotsholmen. Christiansborg Palace Chapel towers from a corner of Slotsholmen as a massive temple. The church was built in 1826 by the greatest Danish architect of the time, C.F. Hansen, in Neo-Classical style. He was clearly inspired by the ancient Greek and Roman styles. In 1992 the church was victim to a fire, and it took five years to restore the building, including the beautiful central dome. Now, it is in perfect shape once again. The church is primarily used by organ students from the Conservatory. This is also the place that the Danish Royal Family uses for special events. Visitors are allowed every Sunday, during all of July and in the Easter and Autumn holidays.
