The Queen Visits the Castle

28. May 2019 |

The Patron of Nyborg Castle – The Christiansborg of the Middle Ages, Her Majesty the Queen will visit Nyborg on Friday 31 May to inspect the restoration of Nyborg Castle and the archaeological excavations at Nyborg Torv.

When Her Majesty the Queen walks out onto Nyborg Torv at noon on 31 May, the square will be unrecognisable. Archaeologists are currently investigating the substratum beneath the square. As part of the Castle Project, the square is currently undergoing a transformation into a new central and historic site in the city. The site was originally established as a jousting field for King Christian III. Her Majesty the Queen will have an opportunity to learn about the latest knowledge about the square and the history of the city.

From the square, she will continue to Nyborg Castle, where the first phase of the restoration is on the point of completion. Here, Her Majesty the Queen will see King Christian III’s impressive Great Hall, the Danehof room, where Denmark’s first constitution was adopted, and the beautiful rooms and chambers on the Castle’s third timber storey. Her Majesty the Queen will hear about the plans for the new building at Slotsholmen and about how, in the future, new public engagement and outreach activities at the Castle will ensure that tourists and citizens of all ages experience and learn about Danish history at Nyborg Castle.

In the Danehof room, Her Majesty the Queen will meet some of the many volunteers, who help to bring the history of Nyborg and Nyborg Castle to life. These are representatives of the Nyborg Castle Costume Guild, who in recent years have made medieval costumes for such events as the annual Danehof.

Her Majesty the Queen’s last official visit to Nyborg was in 2009, when she also visited Nyborg Castle. In 2016, Her Majesty the Queen became Patron of Nyborg Castle – The Christiansborg of the Middle Ages.
