Frederik VIII’s Mansion closes after 480,000 visitors

Today the newly renovated royal residence Frederik VIII’s Mansion at Amalienborg in Copenhagen closed its doors to the public. Since it opened in March, 479,246 visitors have taken the opportunity to see the mansion and the new artworks.
The opening was scheduled to last only until the end of May, but the huge public interest led to it being prolonged until August. Calls for the opening season to be extended even further had to be rejected by the Palaces and Properties Agency, as the mansion must now be furnished and made ready for Crown Prince Frederik and Crown Princess Mary before they move in on 21 September.
