It’s a great experience to stand in this square and watch the change of her Majesty’s Guard. A nice tradition that is kept alive. It happens at noon everyday, but you may want to come 10-15 minutes earlier as it's pretty crowded.

The Amalienborg Castle offers both change of guards and a museum with a permanent and changing exhibition. I enjoyed the one with HRH Queen Margarethe's costume and set designs. Very colourful.

The most boring changing of the guard ceremony I've seen anywhere. Only about 18 soldiers participated in what was mostly standing and waiting, with literally nothing happening. No band. Spend your time elsewhere in Copenhagen and go to London, Stockholm, Ottawa or any other place...More

As a child I came with my parents to Copenhagen. Only a couple of memories remained, the little mermaid, Legoland and the change of the guards. Seeing it all again, made it a very special event for me as my parents passed away. My girlfriend...More
