Charlottenlund was built in 1731-33 and extended in 1880-81. The original building was of a simple Baroque design. It consisted of the nine central bays, i.e. three bays either side of the central projection with its attic storey, pediment and mansard roof. Ionic pilasters. It was designed by J.C. Krieger for Princess Charlotte Amalie (Christian VI's sister), hence the name Charlottenlund.
Ferdinand Meldahl designed the extensions of 1880-81. He added the projecting end wings in the original style and the domed tower with lantern which gave the building its chateau appearance.
