Changing of her Majesty's guard at Amalienborg Castle
Reviewed January 16, 2014

First, a warning; depending if the king or queen is in residence, the size of the guard changes. For instance, if the royalty are there, you will end up with the band and the Life Guard. Other times, just the flute & drums and Life Guard are there. There are days only the Life Guard is present. Which is why I think you see people that are not happy. They have a schedule posted at the barracks, which is where I would recommend you start. At 1130 am, they march out of the barracks and arrive at noon for the changing. Then at the conclusion, (depending on the performance) they march back. You can get unbelievably close to the guard and I took a lot of video and pictures on each day I attended,(in three days there were three different performances because the royalty was in and the next two days, they were gone).

Not as great as the changing of the guard in London or Stockholm, but worth seeing. Dont matter the weather, they will be promptly effecting the change. It takes about 30 minutes, but you dont need to wait until the end.

Everyday at 12pm! (No matter what the weather is) The entire 'show' took almost half hour, which I wouldn't recommend watching the entire thing. However, it is interesting to see the soldiers march, their outfits and funny hats.

This is part of everyday life in Copenhagen and, as such, is worth seeing if you're in the area. It does drag on a bit, but if you're on holiday, what difference does it make. Combine it with a visit to the palace!

Being British, the changing of the guard was much the same as we've seen in our own country, but good to see nonetheless. The wow-factor enjoyed by Americans and Germans who were there didn't spread to us.
