Frederiksberg Slot and the attached Slotskirken church have an excellent location overlooking Frederiksberg park and the city of Copenhagen. Frederiksberg Castle is connected especially with the name of king Frederik VI, but the castle was built as early as 1699, during the reign of Frederik IV (under the supervision of J.C. Ernst). The side wings to the castle were built after drawings by Laurits von Thura. Frederik VI used the beautiful yellow castle as his summer residence. Since 1869 the castle has contained Hærens Officerskole, the Army's Officer Training College. The public can visit the castle but call to inquire about opening hours.
