Built in the late 18th century, this is actually a series of four identical palaces, arranged adjacent to one another across an octagonal square that features an imposing statue of King Frederik V.
Explore the history of the Monarchs
Since Amalienborg is still the main residence of the Danish Monarchs, the palaces are not fully open to the public. However, you can gain entrance into two of the four palaces. Christian VII's Palace is used by the Queen for receiving guests and official representatives in Copenhagen, while audiences can explore the museum inside Christian VIII's Palace. This gives you the opportunity to learn more about the history of the royalties of Denmark. You are also invited to explore the grounds at the daily changing of the guard, which takes place at noon in the courtyard.
Inside the museum you can enjoy a range of special exhibitions visiting annually, as well as getting a deeper insight into the royalties’ fascinating history. You can also tour several private royal apartments dating from 1863-1947, each complete with its original furnishings and fittings. To learn even more, join a guided tour through the palace of Christian VIII and get the very best stories about previously hidden royal treasures.
