Photographer's Note

Christiansborg Palace Chapel was consecrated in 1826, on the day to celebrate the 1,000th anniversary of Christianity in Denmark. Since then the church has on Slotsholmen in Copenhagen been ravaged by fires several times.
In 1800, C. F. Hansen commissioned to rebuild Christiansborg Palace after the fire of 1794. It was not until ten years later that it was decided to rebuild the castle church. The castle and the castle church was built with recycling of the burnt-out buildings masonry. In this way, Frederik 6th. strained the economy less.
Today, only the church is left, after yet another fire, which in 1884 totally destroyed the castle. In 1992 much of the church went up in flames due to fireworks. After a major restoration work, the church opened again in 1997. It’s a very impressive place.
Frederik 6th’s absolute power is symbolized in the construction: the Church is simple but monumental. The church has no tower, which is rather atypical for churches. Instead, the church has pillar-rows and temple gables
