After a long and eventful life in the Danish West Indies, A.H. Riise returned to Denmark in 1879 after having handed over his business in St. Thomas to his son in law.

On his return, A.H. Riise resided to Frederiksberg in Copenhagen, where he occupied the imposing villa formerly known as "Alleenlyst" but after Riise's takeover was renamed St. Thomas.

The villa was demolished in 1900, and the place is today known as St. Thomas Square located on Frederiksberg Alle. Albert Heinrich Riise died on the 18th of October 1882, and was laid to rest at Frederiksberg Assistents Cemetery. A.H. Riise was Knight of the Dannebrog, and the bearer of the Swedish Vasa Order.
