4.4/5 based on 2,400+ reviews on the web
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.

  • Totally worth a visit if you have seen Borgen. The Royal Reception Rooms were amazing, and the ruins under Christianborg gave a good introduction to the history of Copenhagen. 
  • Beautiflu place to walk by on a sunny day; if you are lucky you may see the horses training. Nice photo opportunity 
  • You are just security check away from great view on Copenhagen. Climb and enjoy, make a plan what to visit afterwards. 
  • The palace has stunning rooms and a nice garden. I wasn't able to check out the horse stables, but people said it was nice. You can also go up the tower and on a sunny day, you will get a clear view of all Copenhagen.
  • A very beautiful palace. One of the many you can find in Kopenhagen. It's has very nice gardens and make sure you check the stables for the royal horses!
  • The view is amazing from the tower and also free! During peak times, the que is long. Always windy upstairs!
  • Beautiful place. Little boring if the Queens not in town. Always interesting to see the changing of the guard.
  • Great place where people can have a good panorama view of the whole Copenhagen from the tower FOR FREE!
