The Royal Yacht Dannebrog
Since the 1930s, the impressive Royal Yacht Dannebrog has served as official and private residence of various members of the Danish Royal Family during state visits abroad and summer tours of Denmark. The yacht is named after the Danish flag and is still fantastically ship-shape, despite its 75 years of age!
