Amalienborg Palace Guided Tour

  • The activity takes place with a guide that speaks in English. English
  • 1 hour - 1 hour 30 minutes

Explore Amalienborg, the Copenhagen palace complex home to the Danish royal family since the 19th century. Admire the extravagant interiors of Christian VII's Palace as you discover the history of one of Europe's most important monarchies.

Amalienborg Palace Guided Tour Itinerary

On the morning of your tour, meet your guide at the main entrance to Amalienborg. The historic palace complex, located on the waterfront in Copenhagen, is the residence of the current Danish monarchs, making it one of the city's most important monuments.

The first part of your guided tour will introduce the octagonal courtyard around which the four mansions that make up the palace are located. While your expert guide reveals the history and secrets of the different buildings surrounding you, admire the views offered by the elegant square, from the equestrian statue of Amalienborg's founder, King Frederick V, in the centre, to the Rococo-style Frederik's Church to the west, and the contemporary Copenhagen Opera House to the east.

Amalienborg was originally built in the 18th century to house four families of the Danish nobility, however, after a fire destroyed the royal residence at Christiansborg Palace in 1794, the monarchs bought the complex and made it their official home.

Inside one of the palace buildings, you'll visit the Amalienborg Museum, where a reconstruction of the offices and private rooms of the Danish royals will give you insight into the history and traditions of the family considered the "in-laws of Europe's monarchs". In Christian VII's Palace you'll also explore the magnificent Pompeian ChamberQueen Louise’s salon and the Throne Chamber.
