Knight's Hall

According to Frommer's, the Rosenberg Palace which I showed yesterday "houses everything from narwhal-tusked and ivory coronation chairs to Frederik VII's baby shoes -- all artifacts from the Danish royal family. Officially, its biggest draws are the dazzling crown jewels and regalia in the basement Treasury, which houses a lavishly decorated coronation saddle from 1596." This is the Knights Hall with its coronation seat and relics from the 1700s. I read that the throne you can see here is made of silver.

That is one big hall! Good shot! Good use of a tripod(?), and slow shutter + no flash.

The shape of the vaulted ceiling reminds me of the one at the Broadway Theatre you posted about a month or so ago. A dramatic view; thinking about it, not sure if the price of living there was worth being displayed like a trophy on a silver throne!

Looks beautiful. Even the huge paintings on the wall on the either side is great.
