Ok, My favorite highligths were when he showed us were the Queen and her family sists it was great the she sits in a balcony and she has a little room were they can rest or just relax the room was perfumed with some kind of roses. I couldnīt understand the guider to 100% because I donīt understand danish tah well, he told us that the queen has a (to me it looked like a place where she smokes it looked like a balcony space coverd with glass windows) and one time when she got in she couldnīt get out. So the staff had to call the fire department to get her out of there, he had a newspaper clipping with her when she was looked inside. Iīm sure that they must have had a great laugh because of that. :jawdrop:
He showed us the backdrop,the clearing scenery,they fly system, the chours dressing room,the carpentry workshop, the electrical workshop and the wig room. And the computer room were the guestdancers can e-mail and talk to their family.
All this things were incredible to see, If I did understand correct the whole place is 12 miles but we did only see 2 miles of it. Iīd love the old scene it was really beautiful as in the photos of it. :)

That is so funny! I bet that is a place where she can smoke. Von Habsburg lectured on the Danish Royal Treasures in 2003 here and told anecdotes about the Danish queen, including about her love of smoking. Never thought I'd run into that material again.
