18 Christiansborg Palace in Copenhagen, Denmark

There have been two castles and three palaces that have stood here on an island appropriately called Slotsholmen meaning Castle Islet. The first was built by Bishop Absalon in 1167. The current Christiansborg Palace was built in 1928. It houses all three executive branches of the Danish government including the offices of the Supreme Court and the Prime Minister. Christiansborg Palace is also used by the royal monarchs on special occasions. The spire reaches a height of almost 350 feet.
