Nyhuse Chapel is located at Nyhuse Cemetery in Hillerød and is under the authority of Frederiksborg Castle Chapel. The chapel was built in 1924 according to architect M.P. Madsen’s (1876-1956) plans, and prior to the renovation its interior appeared outdated. On the basis of a wish to restore, modernise and decorate the inside of Nyhuse Chapel, Frederiksborg Castle Chapel’s church council asked Elgaard Architecture to prepare an interior design proposal which could interact with the works of visual artist Simon Aaen.

A Chapel with Multiple Functions
Nyhuse Chapel is primarily used for funerals with a connection to Frederiksborg Castle Parish, as the castle chapel must not be used for this purpose.
In addition to funerals, Frederiksborg Castle Parish organises All Saints worship services and Friday morning meditations in the chapel.genmeditation.
The cemetery is Frederiksborg Castle Parish’s former burial ground, and here members of for instance the Benneweis circus family, painters and various other cultural figures are buried.
