The Prince's Palace - Copenhagen

The Prince's Palace, which houses the National Museum, was home to members of the royal family in the 18th century. The current palace, including the Great Hall – the biggest and finest of its rooms – was built by Nicolai Eigtved between 1743 and 1744. The long wall is adorned with the original Flemish tapestries, the chandeliers are copies from the period, and the chairs are from the Gaunø country manor.
