Even though the castles were closed upon our stay in Copenhagen, we included Amalienborg in our bike trip because it was easy to combine it with other hotspots in the neighborhood. If I ever return to the city, I definitely want to see the inside...More

If you have good guides here, they provide personal glimpses about the royals. My favorite involves the queen's smoking habit (and her consort's gift). Otherwise, it's not particularly amazing architecture, and the changing of the guard ceremony is well short of spectacular. It's still a...More

See where real royals live, visit museum presenting how royals have lived, watch a troop of soldiers march and relieve their mates guarding the area.

This is the heart of old town Copenhagen, with its
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
