Not many people have the privilege to own a private island of their very own. And if that is the one illusive piece in your luxury puzzle, the King’s Island in Denmark can be yours for keeps. Made for the Danish King Christian IX in 1890, the island spans over 180,000 square feet island boasts of 200 rooms, more than two and a half miles of hallways and needed two and a half million tons of solid Bornholm granite to finish. Called as the Middelgrundsfortet by the Danish, King`s Island is the world`s largest artificial island that is not connected to mainland. Located between Copenhagen and the Swedish city of Malmö, the island can be reached in under 15 minutes from Copenhagen by water and it also features a fully functioning helipad.
This is not the first sale for the island; it has been in private ownership for the last 9-years, as a hotel and conference facility, with 24 rooms that contains 88 beds along with a “furnished captain’s quarters done in a handsome maritime style”. The property also has a restaurant, a nightclub, and a bar and billiard lounge. Priced ay €6,800,000 ($9,500,000), for non Danes, you just need to establish “a Danish company, which can in turn buy the island without any complications”.
