Enjoyed our time strolling through the opulent castle within Copenhagen. Bits of history were strewn about to provide context, and we enjoyed getting to know a bit more about the royal history of Denmark.

We were fortunate to reach Christianborg Palace as it opened for the day and our tickets for admission had already been secured. The tapestries illustrating Denmark's history are beautiful as well as significant. The great hall, the chandeliers, the art on the walls tell a facinating story. The queen still uses the palace for the state dinners although the Royal... More

I am not really into castles. Once you have been to Versailles, the rest of the world seems average... but it was worth a visit on a rainy day.

As fans of the show, Borgen, we only planned to take a photo of the outside of the palace, which is the seat of government, but it turned out that it was worth a visit. The palace itself has reception rooms that are used by the government and royal family, and there are some amazing contemporary tapestries to see. In... More

Definitley worth a visit. Amazing architecture, and the building houses parliament today. There is a restaurant in the tower that looks great and would have fantastic views of the city.

I was amazed at how beautiful the palace is and it rivals Versailles inside although outside it looks bleak. There is real beauty...good architecture and the price is cheap compared to British palaces and attractions...120 DK for a combined ticket. 12 English pounds. The Danish Parliament meet here...and the Danish Queen still receives guests here...it is amazing. Well worth a... More

A visit that will take quite some time; this is a big place. Definitely worth a visit and the grounds, stables, parks are incredible. The tours are well worth while and everyone is very helpful. Don't miss the Danish Jewish Museum while you are there.

It is free to visit the Tower (which is accessible via a lift so you dont have to climb up that high. There is however a short flight of stairs before you reach the top so it is unfortunately not-so-wheelchair-friendly). The view is lovely from the top We paid 100DKK to enter the palace's Royal Reception Rooms, The Ruins and... More
