Witness a piece of history and visit the residence of the Danish royal family at Amalienborg Copenhagen.
Built in the late 18th century, Amalienborg is actually a series of four identical palaces in Copenhagen, arranged adjacent to one another across an octagonal square that boasts an equestrian statue of King Frederik V.
While Amalienborg is still the main residence of the Danish royal family in Copenhagen, visitors are invited to explore the grounds at the daily changing of the guard, which takes place at noon in the palace courtyard. Amalienborg also has a museum which offers travellers the opportunity to learn more about the history of the royal family in Copenhagen.
