The Dining Hall 

When the fire took hold of Christiansborg Palace in 1884, steps and handrails from the King’s Stairway were hastily ripped out and carried out of the palace. The stairs were actually made from the finest mahogany. When the palace was once again rebuilt in 1928, the steps and handrails were used to make the new banqueting table with seating for 52 diners.

The two large crystal chandeliers from the 1800s come from the Royal Palace in Oslo, adding lustre to the mahogany table and floor. The Dining Hall is used to host dinners for visiting heads of state and government. For the Queen's gala dinners in the Great Hall, hundreds of dishes are served on the huge table in the Dining Hall.
