King’s Island, Denmark

Only a handful of islands can make truly regal claims; King’s Island in Denmark is one of those very rare islands. Commissioned by Danish King Christian IX in 1890, this massive 180,000 square foot masterpiece consists of 200 rooms, contains over two and a half miles of hallways and required more than two and a half million tons of solid Bornholm granite to complete. Known to the Danes as Middelgrundsfortet, King`s Island holds the distinction of being the world`s largest artificial island not connected to the mainland. Less than 15 minutes from Copenhagen, King’s Island can easily be reached by water but also features a fully functioning helipad. The island is situated in Øresund, between Copenhagen and the Swedish city of Malmö, just two miles to the northeast of the entrance to Copenhagen Harbor
