Christiansborg Palace, Copenhagen

4.4
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.

    In the Christianborg Palace, 3 Government authorities of Denmark, concentrate which makes it a Palace with lots of activity. The history of this Palace you can enjoy with your visits and it is impressive that he continues writing, despite having been reconstituted on 3 occasions

    There wasn't time to visit, from the outside looks like an impressive historical building, beautiful grounds, we are able to climb the Tower from which you can see magnificent views of Copenhagen on four sides with an indication of the skyline

    I had visited it in the summer so it was pretty much crowded, however the place is amazing and there is a lot of history to it. You get a beautiful view of it, if you take a ferry around.

    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.

    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.

Where to stay in Copenhagen

Most of the hotels in Copenhagen are located in the central Vesterbro or hip Indre By areas, though there are many more adventurous (and somewhat more affordable) places to stay during your vacation. As in the rest of Denmark, accommodations in Copenhagen are quite expensive. If you're traveling on a tight budget, consider camping along the Mølleå River or staying in one of the city's many backpacker hostels. If you prefer an inexpensive hotel, explore options in the Helgolandsgade and Colbjørnsensgade neighborhoods. For a taste of Denmark's art scene, head to the up-and-coming Kongens Nytorv and Nyhavn areas. Travelers who like to stay outside of the main tourist areas should set their sights on one of the city's suburbs, like the northern section where you can stay at a beachfront hotel or on a houseboat.
