7A: The stairway to the Stair Turret

The stairway houses portraits from the time of Christian V. Although the stair turret was built in 1633, this stairway was not built into it until 1758. The reason was that the spiral staircase was originally built between only the first and second storeys, while access to the first storey was via an outdoor double staircase, which was torn down when the spiral staircase was prolonged to the ground floor.
