Amalienborg

Royal Copenhagen

Copenhagen is dotted with impressive royal castles, statues and regalia which you can easily tour on foot or by bike.

Amalienborg Castle

The Royal Family residence

You’ll find Amalienborg Palace, the winter home of the Danish Royal Family, just a short walk from The King’s New Square (Kongens Nytorv). Made up of four grand palaces on a square, this is a chance for you to get up close to Danish royalty. You’ll often see Danish princes and princesses driving in and out and you may even spot the Queen! Have your photo taken with the Royal Guard here but don’t expect them to smile!

Amalienborg Castle

The Changing of the Royal Guard

Every day at around 11.30am, the Royal Guard marches from Rosenborg Castle through the city to Amalienborg Palace, ready to take up their post at Queen Margrethe’s door. You can catch them en route down Bredgade, near The King’s New Square (Kongens Nytorv), and follow them to Amalienborg Palace to watch the Changing of the Guards at midday. When the Queen is in residence, they are accompanied by the Royal Guard marching band for some serious pomp!
