Amalienborg offers two royal experiences that let you get close to royal history through the last 250 years. In Christian VIII’s Palace the museum offers an insight into royal life past and present. You can see the private chambers of former kings and queens and, on most days, there is also admittance to the royal reception rooms (check periods at our website) from the museum. In Christian VII’s Palace you can walk in the footsteps of the royal guests, and be shown round the magnificent rooms where grand festivities are held. You can book a guided tour of Christian VII’s Palace in the ticket office of Christian VIII’s Palace or on our website. Remember that every day at noon you can watch the changing of the The Royal Danish Life Guards.

We were only allowed to visit the courtyard at Amalienborg Palace. There was a guard who acted unusual in so far as he kept looking around and moving his head and eyes. Never saw a guard do that before.

This place has a changing of the guard which was cool. It is near the water heading toward the mermaid so you can hit this on the way.

I don't know many places where you have the possibility of seeing the Queen and her children and grandchildren leaving to go about their daily business. We don't have this type of accessibility in the United States to our President (and probably with good reason)...More

Beautiful architecture. Four very similar palaces, once belonging to different aristocratic families, encompass an octagonal square in the middle of which is an equine statue of King Frederik V. At one end it opens onto a spectacular fountain, Amalienhavn gardens and the sea beyond, while...More

blend of charming old buildings and bold new
architecture, broad avenues and tiny streets as well
as picturesque canals and a modern harbor. The inner
city is home to the Royal Danish Theatre, which
consists of three buildings, two of which are new and
situated on the harbor front. The streets, squares and
venues of the inner city and its surrounding
