When in Copenhagen, the royal reception rooms which are part of the Christianborg palace is worth a visit. There is entry ticket for the same which can be combined with stable and ruins. The main hall is the among the best attractions inside and the tapestries.

I timed my visit to Christiansborg on Saturday, because that is the day they have tour guides in English and definitely did not regret it. Tour last around one hour and that was the best tour I've been in Copenhagen. It was interesting and informative. Rooms are very beautiful. Copenhagen card accepted. Connections to other attractions: One hour before the... More

The reception rooms have many beautiful things displayed but the tapestries beat them all. A gift from the business community of Denmark to the Queen, we should all be so lucky as to receive such a give. The designs are modern with historical allusions in many and also many current figures represented. They were woven by the Gobelin looms and... More

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.

The reception rooms were nice, and just what you would expect, although the thrones looked more comfortable than many I've seen. What made the visit worthwhile were the tapestries. I've seen a lot of medieval tapestries, and I can't get excited by them. You probably skip those yellowed things also. These are modern tapestries, designed with a sense of humor... More

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!
