Church in Frederiksværk
Frederiksværk [ fʀɛðəʀegsˈvɛʀg ] is a Danish port city in the Hovedstaden region on Sjælland on the east bank of the Roskildefjord .
Together with Hundested, the town forms Halsnæs Kommune , which was called Frederiksværk-Hundested Kommune until the end of 2007. In the west, the city of Frederiksværk borders the Arresø , so that it lies on an isthmus about three kilometers wide . Frederiksværk is 89.6 km² in size.
In the 18th century the city was given the German name Friederichswerk by the Danish King Friedrich V , as German was the king's language at that time. The current name Frederiksværk is the Danish translation of this name.
The dolmen Carlsstenen west of Fredericksværk became famous at the beginning of the 20th century when it became a motif on the then new 5-crown note.
