The palace takes its name from its first owner, the Minister of Foreign Affairs J.H.E. Bernstorff. It was built in 1765 as one of the earliest Neoclassical buildings in Denmark. In 1842–1939 it functioned as a royal summer residence for among others King Christian IX, known as ‘the father-in-law of Europe’. Today Bernstorff Palace is leased out as a hotel and conference centre.
