Amalienborg Palace

Amalienborg offers two royal experiences that allow you to get close to royal history through the last 250 years.

In Christian VIII’s Palace the museum offers an insight into royal life past and present. You can see the private chambers of former kings and queens where each of the rooms reflects the modern taste of the period and the different personalities. An exhibit on the monarchy in the 21st century lets you explore what it means to be royal today.

The visit includes the magnificent piano nobile with the royal reception rooms which are still in use by the royal family. The highlight is a group of spectacular gilt bronze sculptures by Bertel Thorvaldsen (1770-1844).

In Christian VII’s Palace you can join a guided tour and walk in the footsteps of the royal guests, and see the magnificent rooms where the New Year banquet and other official festivities are held.
