Overview

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.

Enjoyed strolling around the plaza and admiring the Guards marching from one corner of the sidewalk to the other. Even though it was a very hot day the guards took their jobs very seriously. Liked the buildings, cobblestones which are well maintain and the area...More

The museum is well designed and has interesting descriptions at each room. Best for those interested in monarchy history from more recent periods.

This is a really interesting area with lovely statues buildings and guards. The guard changes at 12pm each day which unfortunately we missed but would have been well worth being there for we think

Lovely square to have the Royal Danish Family living on, to watch the changing of the guard was nice if the flag is flying it means the Royal are at home. The marble church is just down the road all in all lovely setting.

One of the four buildings of this palace is a museum that offers a glance of the history of the royal family. We also were fortunate to see the changing of the guard

If you're feeling a bit "palaced-out" by all of the Copenhagen palaces/castles, still go to this one! It has much more of the immediate history, and will help you gain an understanding of the royal family much more.

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
