Situated around a cobbled stone square are palaces for the Monarch (currently the popular Queen Margarathe) as well as the well liked Crown Prince and Princess. There are also two other palaces. Every day at noon there is a "Changing of the Guard" ceremony, which is not as elaborate and colorful as the one at Buckingham Palace in London.

The Danish Parliament has a very lovely feature forgotten by locals - it has a tower high above and also situated in the heart of Copenhagen which is also FREE OF CHARGE and anyone, after passing a security check (it is a Parliament after all) can get a chance to go up and get the overview of the beautiful city...

Walk the harbour and experience the watch shift at the Danish Queens house "Christiansborg". Just take your time to pass here on the way to the Little Mermaid.

Free attraction only opened last year. Its the highest point in the city, giving fabulous views. Well worth a visit, though the Round Tower is a little more atmospheric and in a better location for seeing the old part of the city from above.

Beautiful view of Copenhagen from the top of the tower - highly recommend going up during sunset (especially if it is a clear day). Not much climbing involved, 2 sets of lifts take you up and just need to climb the last 10 stairs or so. And it's free!

There are many parts to this palace. Some you must pay to enter, others are free. Visiting the top of the tower is very nice and friendly to those with mobility issues (you take an elevator). The line can be long, but the views are nice and it doesn't take much time. You do have to go through security to... More

Take the free lift to the top of the tower for a panorama view of Copenhagen. We visited on a Saturday in mid May, we had to wait about 40 minutes to be let through.

Beautiful old building. Just breathtaking. Its a lovely square that allows you to walk around the palace freely. One must see where the Royals live. Interesting to see no fences or walls to keep the public out.

Though I did not visit inside the palace, we enjoyed the walk in the garden and the stable where you can see horses. We particularly like the tower which is free admission and get great view of the surrounding city. There are indication on four sides of those significant buildings and structures. Definitely worthwhile on a clear day.
