I noticed that people have confused the reception rooms at Christiansborg with Amelienborg Palace. 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.

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

One of the rooms is covered with amazing tapestries depicting the history of Denmark from the start to today. The other rooms are just as regal and you are surrounded by beauty. There is even a library which I would like to see everyday!

Self-guided tour easy. Freedom to linger and enjoy majestic grandeur of rooms, furnishings, settings. English language guide notes mounted in each room. Small quality gift shop. No cafe, but excellent National Museum cafe is 10 minutes walk away.
