I liked walking around the palace grounds and the museum section of the palace open for viewing. The history of the current monarchy is pretty cool and the presentation of previous monarchs offices are a great way to show each persons personality. I .. Read more »

Very interesting place. You need to buy tickets and there is a locked place to put your backpack securely. There is also a lovely shop to buy souvenirs. I loved the section on the crown jewels and everything is written also in English.

Such beautiful buildings. The architecture is amazing, but thats so many places here. It was nice to be there early and beat the crowds for the changing of the guard.

Great architecture, interesting displays. Neat to see where formal events were held, and living quarters of previous royals. Saw the changing of the guards at noon too! This was a nice and relaxed visit!
I recently visited Amalienborg Palace and was in awe of its grandeur and historical significance. The palace complex is truly a sight to behold, with its beautiful architecture and regal presence. The palace is the official residence of the Danish r.. Read more »

What a way to end the Grand Tour of Copenhagen with the magnificent showstopper, Grand Amalienborg! BTW, in 2015, this was the first royal palace that I had ever seen in my life. Now, I'm back, and today, Queen Margrethe is the oldest reigning .. Read more »
The museum area to visit was very small, not really worthy. From my view not a must place to visit. The area outside is beautiful and nice to visit. The guard change is not that spectacular, actually a little bit boring. During the change the place i.. Read more »

There’s palaces that belong to different kings in Denmark history here. And in the middle there’s a Frederik V statue. Definitely a visit point when you are in Copenhagen. But to be honest I don’t find it really spectacular. There a.. Read more »

A nice square to visit with royal guards, beautiful buildings with great architecture around it, a nice statue in the center. We were able to see the change in shift of the guards and their parade with all the soldiers and the flag. Definitely a grea.. Read more »

Really nice area and a stunning castle. You have to see the changing of the guards. It’s at 12 every day and get packed but u can get a good view. Flags mean the family is home which we learned that today. Explore the area. You will enjoy it.

Beautiful classic building complex with equestrian statue of King Frederik V right in the center. We can also see the iconic Frederiks Kirke (Frederik’s Church) from there as it’s within walking distance. Like the others said, the changi.. Read more »

If you happen to visit at noon, you can experience the changing of the guards. They March everyday from their barracks near Rosenborg Castle through the streets of Copenhagen and end up at this location. While only a small portion of the p.. Read more »

The staff were so helpful. The palace was fun to tour and also so open given the royals still live here. Also got to see the changing of the guard take place at 1200

Despite my general disinterest in royalty and jewelry, I still found the museum located here surprisingly fascinating. Seeing just how interwoven the Royal Families of Europe are and getting a sense of the scope of activities they are required to att.. Read more »

The home of Denmark’s King and Queen. Unfortunately one of them was in residence and as such there were no tours available. Still a beautiful place to visit and take in the wonderful architecture.

An impressive ensemble of 4 identical palaces with classical frontage. In one palace (Palais Christian VIII.) nowadays the Amalienborg museum is located. If there on time, one can attend changing of the royal life guard.
Jürgen Braun
If you have to choose between Rosenborg and Amalienborg, the better choice is for sure Rosenborg! But also here I can recommend to buy your tickets only, even if you do this only shortly before your visit. Usually there are long queues and there is a.. Read more »

Rally nice place which offers nice old buildings, big statue in the middle and cathedral little in the back. The thing I really liked about this place (square) is, that it wasn’t overcrowded.
Decent place to visit if you have the city pass, but I wouldn’t recommend spending the money for a stand-alone ticket as the items aren’t anything too special (other than the Faberge room which is pretty small). They have free lockers to .. Read more »

Very nice rococo royal palaces complex which worth visiting together with Frederik's Church nearby and Amalie Garden near the waterfront. It's a Danish royal residence. Interesting that originally it was built for 4 different noble families.. Read more »

It was a interesting palace. You just walked in to a kind of court and around you there are different buildings. Apparently at every building around lives a part of the royal family and there are underground tunnels so they can visit eachother. We w.. Read more »

Impressive. The main palace is flanked by 4 smaller palaces where the prince and princesses live, patrolled by an honor guard. While we were there, someone drove into the courtyard so all the guards came to attention immediately until the car had bee.. Read more »

Its one of the highlights in Copenhagen. Beautiful presented. It is a living castle and guards directions must be followed. I also like the setting near the water and the fact that it is open to the public as much as possible.
Sofiia Romanovska
Royal place that functions nowadays. Daily at 12 pm there is public guard exchange that worth to see. Guard's outfit depends on the presence of Queen inside and if there are visitors - based on their status. Next to the main Palace there is an .. Read more »

Amalienborg was a fun place to visit. We enjoyed reading about the more recent royals and going through the rooms. I gave this a 4 just because I feel the other palaces in Denmark have much more history and more rooms to go through as well as beautif.. Read more »

Majestic place. Don't expect to see the queen or any royalty there except in rare occasions but you will definitely see many royal guards and tourists. A single tip: don't pose close the guards or bother them in any way as it is prohibited!

The changing of the guards is fun to watch but very crowded with tourists. If you decide to skip it, it’s fine, as it’s not very interesting, and actually quite boring especially with all the people. The palace is nice with a statue in th.. Read more »

Watching the changing of the guard is nice if you like the ceremony and there's a bit of music, but mostly they're just going about their jobs. It's worth seeing but not worth waiting around for if the weather is bad. As for the buildi.. Read more »

Residence of the royal family. Nice, large square, surrounded by 4 beautiful buildings. All protected by the royal lifeguard. Absolutely must-see og you visit Copenhagen!
Emily The Goddess
Amelienborg is my favorite castle in Copenhagen. It's just the right size. Frederick's Church is a stone's true away and it's just a great place. Highly recommend!
A must visit if you are in Copenhagen. The palace is very modern and elegantly decorated. The beauty of the castle will blow you away.
Manninson Burn
We saw the parade outside the palace . Elegant guards in uniforms performed in a show just in the garden . Suggestive inside and very “ classy “ ?
Joshua Flint
Worth a visit, the place is well kept and clean, but really not all that much to see or do. The changing of the guards might be of interest to some.

It is a royal palace of immaculate beauty. With the Frederik Church in the background and the Black Diamond at the front, there is something of composure, peace and permanance about the place, that bestows certain serenity to it. It is definitely wor.. Read more »

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 .. Read more »
