  • There's no security and you can just walk into the palace grounds to watch the changing of the guard. Copenhagen is a wonderful city with lots to see.  more »
  • It's by accident around noon that during our journey, we could see this changing of the Royal Guard. As tourists, it was channelled to a specific place in the square, in order to leave room for the changing of the guard, who made the turn. The country is a Kingdom, and this ceremony reminds us! Among other things we liked: - the ceremonial side - costumes and gestures, assumed well repeated - the particular style of the troupe, which scrolls - the enthusiasm of the population for the Royal family - the similarity with the changing of the guard in England, which is larg also publicized. In short a nice moment between two walking tours.
