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 got curious about this place because our walking tour with Ben stopped here, but opted to return at a later point of time. Rightfully so, as the museum linked to it (to be found in the building on the right of the road to...More

At 12 pm each day, the changing of the guard occurs at Amalienborg Palace. It is good to be there early for the start of the ceremony (which runs for about 15 mins, although you don't have to stay for its entirety) which is quite...More

Delightful area offering access to the waterway and a large open space in the centre of the city. Rooms were beautiful and exhibits very interesting. Being an active royal residence we were visited by Prince Joachim.

Came here to see the Changing of the Guard, it happens every day at 1200 and is pretty cool to watch. Was pretty cold standing in the wind and rain though so plan carefully! It does go on for quite a long time but you...More

Visited here on our way back from little mermaid. This is close by so we just walked to the castle. Since it was November the castle was closed for admission by the time we visited. The palace is large and still looking glamourous. We couldn't...More

I enjoyed watching the changing of the guard and touring one of the palaces that has been made into a museum. I enjoyed learning about the history of the Danish royal family at the museum but wish they offered a good souvenir book for purchase.

it was amazing visit the palace, and also see the guardian. It is very cosy and it is pretty nice. I am thinking come back to copenhaguen.

Plan your visit so you can see the changing of the guard. While a nice little ceremony it is more casual than what you would see in England at the palace. It does reflect the casual attitude of the Danish population which is a little...More

We did not go inside for a tour but we did watch the changing of the guard outside. It was a little boring (no band because the Queen was not at home). Still, it was nice to see.

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

Yes, but the changing of the guard is not until noon. You must also check to see what time the museum opens.
