The building is very nice, the rooms are beautiful, and the tapestries are the highlight. If you appreciate this art form, it is worth the visit.

This is part of the Christiansborg tour set, you really have to see it for your selves, even though the palace burned down 2x before, the reconstruction and attention to detail is just breathtaking.

The rooms are gorgeous in and of themselves, but you can get lost in trying to pick out all the historical moments in the tapestries. It's a lot of fun!

My husband and I spent nearly 3 hours enjoying what Christiansborg Palace had to offer and we did not visit the stables or ruins! The Palace was beautifully presented and well maintained. Good information was available in English. We visited the Palace Chapel first. This was free for anyone to visit.

Some reviews are of Christiansborg which is on Slosholmen or Castle Island, where you can see the rooms that the royal family still uses for important functions. This is where the colorful modern tapestries are found. The rooms are ornate and beautifully decorated. On the other... More

The reception rooms are still used by the Queen of Denmark and are open to the public. Before you can enter the rooms you have to cover your shoes.

Spent about an hour walking through the Royal Reception Rooms and was definitely a highlight for my stay in Copenhagen. May not be for everyone but if you appreciate finer detail, upholstery, paintings and architecture you will love it. Just beautiful from start to finish
