Bernstorff Palace

Bernstorff Palace

Bernstorff Palace in Gentofte, Denmark was built in the middle of the 18th century for Foreign Minister Johann Hartwig Ernst, Count von Bernstorff. It remained in the possession of the Bernstorff family until 1812. In 1842 it was bought by Christian VIII, and Christian IX used it as his summer residence.

Today the palace is used for education of officers of the Danish Emergency Management Agency and the palace gardens are open to the public.
