Well worth a visit if you have a Copenhagen card which gets you into all the museums and palace rooms. The queue for the (free) tower lift can be very long.

One of the MUST SEE palaces in Europe. Centuries of royal pomp, splendour and high drama lie hidden in Christiansborg palace walls. It is said that the Queen uses much of the palace even today.

We went at 4pm, on a Friday in November, not many others there, pretty much had the place to our selves! I in particular loved the tapestry room and the gorgeous library.

We bought tickets for the entire grounds. Well worth it. Spent an easy 3 hours enjoying this Palace. The tower is free to go up. And you get a great view of the beautiful city.

This city Palace is massive but not in an overwhelming way. The interiors are depictive of Danish royalty’s wealth and power. Don’t miss the convenient climb (it has a lift!) to the tower for breathtaking views of Copenhagen. Free-of-charge so expect a long queue.

Probably the nicest palace we visited in Copenhagen. Easy to do in an hour, and an even better deal if you have the Copenhagen card. The Tower restaurant was also a nice place to have lunch, but have reservations!

The newest version of this old palace is not old by European standards. Finished less than a hundred years ago but built to look old. Decorated as an old palace should be until you look at it properly. Stone around the doors, plaster with fake...More

We visited the Christiansborg Palace in mid-November. The rooms are very ornate and some were decorated for the Christmas season, as they would have been decorated in that era. My favorite room was the Great Hall whose halls adorn more modern murals donated in early...More

This is the heart of old town Copenhagen, with its
blend of charming old buildings and bold new
architecture, broad avenues and tiny streets as well
as picturesque canals and a modern harbor. The inner
city is home to the Royal Danish Theatre, which
consists of three buildings, two of which are new and
situated on the harbor front. The streets, squares and

Yes - there were horses training in the paddock when we arrived - they'd love it! I'd just recommend not going into too much history - do the fun stuff and keep it interesting.

You can buy the combined ticket at the reception and it’s valid for the reception rooms, stable , kitchen , ruins underneath for 48 hrs. There’s also and antique market outside the palace once a week.
