(2,800+ reviews on the web)
Government Building Castle
The seat of the country's parliament, the stately Christiansborg Palace stands directly above the ruins of a castle that existed in this very spot nearly 1,000 years ago. Take a guided tour of the palace to see its famous royal reception rooms used by the queen to entertain visiting heads of state. Be sure to visit the largest of the reception rooms, a hall so vast it can seat up to 400 guests. For a crash course in Danish history, visit the remains of the original castle to learn about the palace's long service as a royal residence and seat of legislative power. Check the website for downloadable maps of the palace. Arrange your visit to Christiansborg Palace and discover more family-friendly attractions in Copenhagen using our Copenhagen itinerary planner.

  • I visited the palace with my girlfriend and her family. We had a great time at the palace and I highly recommend it to anyone visiting Copenhagen! The tower view is also a great thing to check out.
  • Best palace to visit in Copenhagen. Beautiful architecture and decor. Make sure to walk around the neighborhood as well.
  • Visited this place as part of the Cultural Night in Nov. Pretty impressive interior, architecture and most of all, the chandeliers! I took so many pictures of these, found them so beautiful. They really preserved the place well, and we took some time to actually visit all the rooms. Each with its own design and identity/purpose.
  • Beautiful palace with lots to see. Probably better with a guided tour but some amazing things to see here.
  • One of the most beautiful palace. You can visit the tower if you want, but is a bit crowd.
