The visit to the Royal Reception Rooms was a highlight of our trip, I mentioned them in my review of Christianborg. It was an awesome experience to have such access to areas that serve as present day entertaining rooms for the Royal family. There were very few people wandering around which made the experience very personal and enjoyable.

The Royal Reception Rooms have been one of the highlights of our trip to Copenhagen. Stunning rooms, extremely good value for money, a nice shop, good for families. Don't delay! Thoroughly recommended by Jack Pudding!

equivalent to Buckingham Palace, was incredibly decorated and worth the tour. Very interesting too. Each room was full of extravagant decoration and chandeliers.

I Like the rooms and it details, a lot to see with ruins included. The black and white marbel floor are impresive. Nice furniture which reflect the history of Copehagen. Is more impresive than Rosenborg Castle interiors.

The wall tapestries are a real gem. Never have seen a modern work so detailed and colourful and fabulous. The rooms are beautiful ofcourse, very neat and classic. Buy a combined ticket with the ruins under Christianburg.

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.
