The essential free guide to your stay in Copenhagen

Amalienborg Slotsplads 5, 1257 København K

Time to see

30 minutes



First impression: Does the queen really live here? You truly sense her presence.

Why: It’s a genuine Copenhagen landmark. It’s no accident that it is the only attraction in Copenhagen to feature on UNESCO’s list
of world heritage sites.

Why not: If you want to be impressed by the royal art collections and crown jewels, visit Rosenborg Castle instead. But generally speaking, very few visitors regret spending time at Amalienborg.

Tip: The noontime Changing of the Royal Life Guards is popular – but mostly if you have a weakness for military drills.
