Unforgettable Royal Experiences in Copenhagen


Copenhagen, the Danish capital, is a truly Nordic city with a vibrant atmosphere and amazing cultural scene. Everything in this city, from fascinating grand architecture to modern gourmet restaurants, makes a perfect blend of old and new. Danish people like to sit outside, enjoying the sun beams while sipping a creamy cappuccino and observing passers-by or cyclists, who lazily pedal around. Indeed, the Danish cycling culture is a very good indication of a green and sustainable society the Danes are striving to build.

It goes without saying that Copenhagen has a lot of exciting royal experiences to offer, so be prepared to discover some of them!

As Denmark is a home to one of the world’s oldest monarchies, the royal capital has a number of beautiful castles worth visiting. The first one is the the Amalienborg Palace with its luxurious private interiors and royal chic. It is used as a winter residence of the Danish royal family. As you move from one room to another, it feels like you are taking the journey through the royal lifetime. By the way, if you see the flag on top of the castle, it means that the royal family members are at home.

Tip! Every day at the inner yard of the castle you can witness the changing of the Royal Danish Guard at 12:00 noon. The Guard leaves its barracks at Rosenborg Castle at approximately 11:30 and marches through the city to Amalienborg Palace.

Another royal gem is the Rosenborg Castle. Initially it was built 400 years ago as a pleasure palace. The exhibition is structured as a journey along the royal lineage as you stroll from the basement with the numerous art treasuries displayed to the upper floors, experiencing marvelous historical interiors.

Finally, absolutely gorgeous is the Christiansborg Palace which is still used for the official occasions. Here you can imagine yourself attending royal reception, as you stroll from the Library, to the Dining Hall, the Great Hall and the Throne Room, richly decorated with the finest materials and tapestries. Moreover, it is also possible to visit the royal stables and enjoy the view of the royal carriages and horses. Finally, you can also go underground and discover the ruins revealed recently by accident, or pay a visit to the Royal Kitchen and have a unique look behind the scenes of the royal parties and celebrations.

After fabulous royal experiences it is time to have some rest and take a canal tour in order to discover beautiful harbor and canals. Tour round trips depart from Gammel Strand 26 (which is just opposite the Christiansborg Palace) or Nyhavn (the old harbour district). The tour lasts approximately 1 hour and gives an excellent opportunity to enjoy some breathtaking views of the city from another perspective.
