It was fun to see the public spaces where royalty actually does receive guests and host events. I think the dinner table in the dining room would even fit all of my family at Christmas.

An interesting walk through the rooms of the palace showing the study of King Frederick as well as other pieces of royal history. Also some wonderful pieces of Royal Copenhagen porcelain.

Another lovely palace this time with armed guards outside as this is where the Danish royals live. Apparently you can also see the 'Changing of the Guards' at noon. My favourite room was the hall with the beautiful tapestries to celebrate the 50th wedding anniversary of the current queen and her husband (I think that's correct). Also some lovely photos... More

The reception rooms are lovely to look at, but check online before you make a special trip there -- they are occasionally closed for the holidays, official government functions/receptions. Pretty, but not incredibly interesting. Also, they make you put on blue shoe covers (to save the floors).

Great how the Royal Palace is open to the public. We loved strolling round the push, grand palatial rooms. The tapestries were particularly beautiful.

This is one of the rooms which you can visit inside Christiansborg Palace. You will also be able to see some adjacent rooms. The rooms are richly decorated and are still used by the royal family for state dinners and receptions. This attraction offers free wifi. You can buy a combined ticket to visit the tower, the royal stables and... More

These are part of the Christiansborg Palace and where the royal family hold functions and welcome foreign dignitaries. The whole main hall is filled with huge modern tapestries which tell the story of the history of Europe and the world. The tapestries are just amazing, with so much detail. Allow plenty of time to visit to explore the symbols and... More

The Royal Reception Rooms are wonderfully decorated and displayed. And with the complimentary English tour offered daily, I was able to understand everything at which I was looking, including a few details I had missed. We learned all about how each room was used in its day and a brief history of the palace itself. A wonderful tour for history... More

It's a large space full of modern tapestries with the story of royal family on it. The royal palace self is worth it to visit.

With a fairly high admission price and no detailed map or guide available, there didn’t seem much to see at the start. But as we progressed, we were completely won over. The sumptious state apartments are interesting and we particularly liked the room where the chairs and door panels had many realistic depictions from nature. But, as others have said,... More
