The Moltkes Mansion was built in the beginning of the 18th century. Both counts and royals have lived here but today the house
is owned by The Copenhagen Craftmen’s Association. In the old wine cellar, one of Denmark’s five two-star Michelin restaurants is located: AOC.

The Mansion was built by the Danish Ulrik Frederik Gyldenløve, completed in 1702, and originally named after him “Gyldenløve’s small mansion”. Mr Gyldenløve died two years later and the Mansion became home to his son, count Ferdinand Danneskiold-Laurvigen. His wife countess Ulrikka Eleonore Rewentlow expanded and modernized the mansion and sold it in 1763. The buyer was a French grocer, Frédéric de Connick, who put a Louis-Seize touch upon the mansion. De Connick renamed the estate: Næsseslottet as a tribute to the Danish nature.

The Danish Queen Juliane Marie, who was a widow, lived here for a couple of years after Christiansborg burned down in 1794. During these years, the mansion further expanded. In 1852, Adam Wilhem Moltke took over and immediately changed the name of the estate to “Moltke’s Mansion”. A.W. Moltke was a count and the first prime minister of Denmark.

In 1930, the mansion was bought by The Copenhagen Craftmen’s Association who had the estate officially listed. The association had the necessary means to maintain the old mansion, which they did with the help of sculptor Edvard Eriksen (the creator of The Little Mermaid). The ceiling of the room where we’ll be having dinner is decorated by Edvard Eriksen.
