Immerse yourself in the history of Denmark on this guided tour of Christiansborg, an important royal palace and government building on the isle of Slotsholmen. Plus enjoy spectacular views from the tallest tower in Copenhagen.
Christiansborg Palace Guided Tour Itinerary
Meet your guide at the main entrance to the Christiansborg Palace. The historic building is located on Slotsholmen, or "Castle Island", an islet in Copenhagen's harbour.
Before you enter the building itself, your expert English-speaking guide will explain the current use of Christiansborg, as the seat of the Folketing, as the Danish Parliament is known. After learning interest facts about the unicameral political system of the Scandinavian country, you'll embark on a guided tour of the palace's royal chambers, admiring the lavish Baroque and Neo-Baroque interior decoration.
Discover the extensive collection of Gobelin tapestries in the Great Hall of Christiansborg, one of the palace's most spectacular rooms. These magnificent works portray different events from Denmark's history in incredible detail.
After approximately an hour and a half, your guided tour of the palace will come to an end back at the original start point.
At the end of your tour, you'll have the opportunity to climb up to the Christiansborg Observation Deck, which is the tallest tower in Copenhagen and offers incomparable panoramic views over the Danish capital. The tower is open from 11 am until 9 pm, and access is free!
