Impeccably up kept. I have never seen a Palace with such meticulous detail and color. I felt like I was whisked away to a far away time when the royals built their homes to a standard that would never been seen today. We bought the...More

Walked around the Palace complex and other official buildings. Impressive architecture. Basically very quiet with not many people around. Surprised by how low key (if any) the security was. If near by worth going round. For me personally not an attraction to make a special...More

Located on an island surrounded by a narrow canal, the Christianborg Palace ground is huge! This is the heart of Danish parliament and Supreme Court, so obviously not all buildings are opened to the public. The sections which are accessible to the public - The...More

A little tricky to find the entrance but so worth it, beautiful palace, very impressive, and deserted when we went! Make sure you visit the other areas too like the sables and the underground ruins. The chapel was sadly closed when we went though, it...More

Not huge amount to see as such but if you go at 12 Noon you see changing of the guard. The police control where you stand but there is a band and the theatre if the guards marching. Worth a look

A very relaxed self guided tour of a beautiful and historic palace. I thoroughly enjoyed the details shown in each room and the very relaxed feeling despite the very grand environment. The palace was decorated for Christmas and it was a lovely insight to Danish...More

Well worth a visit if you have a Copenhagen card which gets you into all the museums and palace rooms. The queue for the (free) tower lift can be very long.

One of the MUST SEE palaces in Europe. Centuries of royal pomp, splendour and high drama lie hidden in Christiansborg palace walls. It is said that the Queen uses much of the palace even today.

This is the heart of old town Copenhagen, with its
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
venues of the inner city and its surrounding

Yes - there were horses training in the paddock when we arrived - they'd love it! I'd just recommend not going into too much history - do the fun stuff and keep it interesting.

You can buy the combined ticket at the reception and it’s valid for the reception rooms, stable , kitchen , ruins underneath for 48 hrs. There’s also and antique market outside the palace once a week.
