Create an itinerary including Amalienborg Museum
The four identical classical palaces of Amalienborg Museum serve as the Danish royal family's winter residence. It was originally built for King Frederick V, whose equestrian statue adorns the center of the square--a masterwork of Rococo architecture. The story goes that the king made a deal with four rich families to free them from paying taxes in exchange for their palaces. Choose from a few different tour options, and visit the historic royal museum housed in one of palaces. If you time your visit right, you can catch the change of the royal guard ceremony (12pm daily). The brass band accompanies the guardsmen only if the palace is occupied by someone from the royal family. Put Amalienborg Museum into our Copenhagen trip itinerary tool to see other points of interest to visit during your vacation in Copenhagen.

  • We visited Moltke's Place, aka Christian VII palace, with a group, followed by a dinner in one of the impressive rooms. Perfectly maintained, beautiful style ... and very good food!

  • All about the jewel, nice narration of the jewels in the queen’s words. Second level has no narration but more in the palace life. Nice thing o see after changing of the guards opens at 10.
