About
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.

The area
Address
Neighborhood: Indre By (Inner City)
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 neighborhoods, are alive all year round with everything from jazz festivals to outdoor ice skating rinks and parachuting at the lakes right in the center of the city. This compact area boasts beautiful old castles, tranquil parks, and bustling squares where you can always find a bench to stretch out your legs whenever you need a break.

Strolled around this area of Copenhagen last Saturday evening. The view from the square of the Marble Church is truly spectacular.

Not worth a visit
Aug 2021
Not much here to see and little in English.
The area and buildings on the outside are worth a wander though.
If you arrive to the square around 10.30 on a Sunday, the changing of the guards happens and you have the square to yourself for good photos.
The palace entrance is not signed until it opens at 11 but as you enter from the metro side it is the first door on the left in the square itself.

Royal Palace
Sep 2019
The palace wraps itself round the three sides of a very large square. Its worth seeing from the outside even if its just a chance to see how large it is. Tours are available but I was happy viewing it from the outside only. The guards on duty stand to attention and seem to be ok having their photos taken. Changing of the guard takes place at times but wasn't when we were visiting.

When in Copenhagen you must see
Jul 2020
Gotta check out where the Queen of Denmark lives when she is in Copenhagen. The castle is pretty impressive in the middle of Copenhagen, lot of things to see around the place, so do not miss out on this one.

Enjoyed My Visit!
Aug 2019
It was interesting to see the rooms and studies of the royals, completely filled floor to ceiling with framed photos, pipes, books, and knickknacks galore! It was a hoot - is this really how they lived, or did they just fill the rooms with all their possessions at once? Only when the rooms were bare, could we walk freely without being behind the glass. Anyway, it was entertaining and I had a good time - I would say this is a must-do in Copenhagen! (I visited in August 2019.)

Hej EileenMtShasta Mange tak for din fine anmeldelse. Vi er glade for at høre, at I havde en positiv oplevelse på museet. Arbejdsværelser er indrettet så tæt på den originale indretning som muligt. Især Christian 10.s arbejdsværelse er næsten en tro kopi af, hvordan der har set ud mens Kongen brugte værelset. Venlig hilsen Trine / Kongernes Samling

Beautiful square; probably skip the tour.
Oct 2019
This photo-ready square includes four identical buildings, one of which houses the palace tour. The tour is fairly brief, but I wouldn't recommend it unless you're really into the day-to-day life of the royals. (We enjoyed the tour of Rosenborg much more.) The changing of the guard is worth seeing.

Very close to Frederiks Kirke and Designmuseum Danmark, so why not make an afternoon of it?

A bit dull
Feb 2020
We visited the Amalienborg musuem which is in one of the 4 palaces. I love a visit to a palace but this one seemed a bit dry, a bit dull. We had a much better time at Rosenborg and Christiansborg.
We were outside again in time for the changing of the guard, which was interesting, but not as interesting as we have seen at other palaces. There were lots of guards, a band, but it took a long time and nothing much happened.

Stumbled upon this, but a must-do as central to all other tourist destinations in Copenhagen!
Feb 2020
We timed our stumbling upon the square as a random military parade from Nyhavn (11am Sunday?) to this square for changing of the guard and it was very interesting when the guards step facing so close to one another to swap shifts. It is also central to mermaid, the dome church and nice local (non-tourist) eateries. A must visit.
