THE RUINS UNDER CHRISTIANSBORG PALACE
Christiansborg Palace is built on the ruins of an 800-year-old castle, which is open to the public. Visit the two ruins, that each tell an important part of Danish history. The oldest and biggest ruin is the curtain wall from Bishop Absalon’s 12th century castle and was used to protect the castle from pirates. The other ruin is the old fabled Blåtårn, Blue Tower, the biggest tower at Copenhagen Castle. The most famous prisoner was Christian IV’s favourite daughter, Leonora Christina. She was locked up in the tower for almost 22 years.
