While the castle was built, lived Christian 4 in a large Italian-inspired pleasure palace called Saving money which he had built on the other side of the lake. Frederiksborg Castle was used as a royal residence in the following hundred år.
1700 - 1859: Time of Change
In 1720, Christian 4.s pleasure palace demolished, and also took instead a beautiful baroque garden. The castle itself was also renovated in the 1730s, but the castle was of use as a royal residence by the end of 1700. Instead, Frederiksborg place where you picked up the royal portrait collection.

royal couple rebuilt the castle to make the home more modern. Among other things, they had installed several fireplaces and stoves to heat the large room. It was one of those new hot springs, which in 1859 caused the great fire. Large parts of the interior burned out, and several places were only the thick walls back.

1860 - today: Brewer's museum
As Frederiksborg Castle had to be rebuilt after the fire in 1859, were arranged both a national collection and a lottery for the benefit of the castle.
royal family decided that they would no longer use the castle as a residence, and it was therefore an open question what the castle would be used. Carlsberg founder JC Jacobsen, suggested that there was established a museum in the castle, and he offered to pay for the structure of the museum and its further expenses. The museum is now an independent department of Carlsberg Foundation.
