Amalienborg Palace Tours

star-4
761 Reviews
Amalienborg Palace
Amalienborg Palace is the official residence of the Danish royal family, the world’s oldest monarchy. One of Copenhagen’s most beautiful monuments and a popular visitor attraction, the Amalienborg complex contains four stately palaces: Christian VII’s Palace, Frederik VIII’s Palace, Christian IX’s Palace, and Christian VIII’s Palace.

The Basics
Whether you choose to explore the capital by bike, Segway, or on a walking tour, most Copenhagen city tours include a stop to admire the magnificent Amalienborg. Visitors can watch the changing of the guard ceremony, learn more about Denmark’s royal history at the Amalienborg Museum, and peruse the structure’s lavish interior. For a more personalized experience, opt for a small-group or private tour, visit independently on a hop-on hop-off bus tour of Copenhagen, or combine your Amalienborg experience with a visit to Christiansborg Palace, Tivoli Gardens, or a Copenhagen canal cruise. 

Things to Know Before You Go
  • The Amalienborg Palace Museum is located within Christian VIII’s Palace and includes access to the Representation Rooms and Royal Studies.
  • Combination tickets are available for the Amalienborg and Rosenborg Palaces. A Copenhagen Card grants you free entrance to both attractions.
  • The palace is wheelchair accessible, but strollers and prams are not permitted inside.

How to Get There
The palace is located in the Frederiksstaden District of central Copenhagen. The closest metro station is Kongens Nytorv. 

When to Get There
Although the palace interiors and museum are closed on Mondays, it’s possible to admire the exterior at any time. The most popular time to visit is during the daily changing of the guard ceremony at midday. It’s best to visit early if you want to avoid crowds, especially in the busy summer months.

The Changing of the Guard at Amalienborg Palace
The famous changing of the guard ceremony at Amalienborg Palace is a long-standing tradition that dates back 1658. Every day at noon, the Danish Royal Life Guard (Den Kongelige Livgarde), dressed in their ceremonial uniforms and bearskin hats, march through the streets of Copenhagen from Rosenborg Castle to Amalienborg Palace Square, where they relieve the current standing guards of their duty and take over the job of guarding the palace.
