Amalienborg Museum, Copenhagen

4.0
Create an itinerary including Amalienborg Museum
The four identical classical palaces of Amalienborg Museum serve as the Danish royal family's winter residence. It was originally built for King Frederick V, whose equestrian statue adorns the center of the square--a masterwork of Rococo architecture. The story goes that the king made a deal with four rich families to free them from paying taxes in exchange for their palaces. Choose from a few different tour options, and visit the historic royal museum housed in one of palaces. If you time your visit right, you can catch the change of the royal guard ceremony (12pm daily). The brass band accompanies the guardsmen only if the palace is occupied by someone from the royal family. Put Amalienborg Museum into our Copenhagen trip itinerary tool to see other points of interest to visit during your vacation in Copenhagen.

  • I love jewelry, and these pieces in the Queen's collection are amazing 🌟 but the lack of security concerned me. We have to leave our stuff in locker, which is fine, but there is no additional security like a security personel or a camera. And when they asked about it they said it's my responsibility to bring my stuff and not theirs. Great, so I guess a solo traveller shouldn't come 😁 They can protect jewels, I think a bit more can be done for a couple of bags with nothing super valuable in it.
  • Nice place in the middle of Copenhagen. If you time it right you will see the change of the guard. Around 12.00u
  • Nice place to visit for 1 about an hour. Everything clean and tidy!
  • Very fine old pałace. If you in Copenhagen, you should watch it.
  • Expected there would be a lot more to see. Rosenborg is much more interesting and simply stunning. Perhaps consider buying the combined ticket, or if you just have time for one, go for Rosenborg.
