Transport yourself back to days of royalty in Copenhagen. Gaze at the old-time carriages and saddles, admire uniforms worn by riders in days of yore and meet the modern-day residents of the actual stables. Giddy-up!

Seeing the Royal Carriages used over the years and still used was a thrill. There are currently 14 horses used for ceremonial purposes that are in the stable and are used every day to keep them in practice. There is a display of Royal riding...More

It wouldn't be worth seeing all on it's own but it's a nice addition to the palace combo ticket. It's unfortunate we were there when the horses were not there. There was a lot of interesting history about the Royal horses in Denmark.

It was misty and cold, but good fun to watch. I liked the combination of everyday-ness and spectacle.

The royal stables keeps many white horses. Some are friendly and you can touch them gently. Plan this to be part of your visit to the Christianborg palace. Due to time constraints, I've just spent 15 minutes in here. You could be here perhaps 45...More

Short stop with card or combo ticket. Get to see ( and stroke) some of the horses and view the carriages used in the past and present royal processions. Short video on the work of the stables and that's it. Only a 10-15 minute visit....More

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
