The Blue Chamber

This room is included in the special exhibition Frederik X: King of Tomorrow until 8 September 2024. Therefore, you will not be able to see the room in the state that is described on this page until autumn/winter 2024.

The room was originally furnished for Hereditary Prince Frederik’s wife Hereditary Princess Sophie Frederikke. She died soon after the assumption of the palace, however, and thus had no pleasure from it.

The painting on the wall is Abildgaard’s own work. It bears a resemblance to an illustration in James Cook’s book ‘A Voyage to the Pacific Ocean’ and represents dancing women from Tahiti. The Blue Cabinet also has a trompe-l’oeil ceiling.
