Frederiksborg Palace Garden
Frederiksborg Palace Garden at Hillerød offers a wide range of experiences. The palace gardens consist of two distinct gardens. The symmetric, Italianesque baroque garden consists of terraces with a cascade in the central axis, surrounded by a large border parterre and bosquets with geometrically-formed beds and topiary. The gardens, which were planned by J.C. Krieger, were recreated in 1996.
The second part is a landscaped, forested area with free-growing woodland, large grassy areas, lakes, streams and winding paths. The most significant elements are the variations between the wooded hillocks and the open landscaped spaces that are formed by either the grassy meadows or lakes. In addition, the solitary trees, and trees with particularly characteristic growth shapes, play an important part in creating variation in the experience. Canals, ponds and buildings that are dotted around the garden also make up central scenarios.
Rendelæggerbakken is the original road that led to both the Bathhouse and Fredensborg Palace. It forms a central structure and link between the baroque garden and the palace, dividing the palace gardens in two.
