Christainborg Palace - Review
This is the only building in the the world to host all three branches of government: executive, judicial and legislative. Some parts of the building are still perused by the royalty. The main attractions here are the lavish Royal Reception Rooms, the thousand year old Ruins beneath the Palace, the Palace Chapel, the Court Theatre and the beautiful pavilions and marble bridge. Try scheduling the visit to catch the changing of the Guard.

Christainborg Palace, Copenhagen Reviews
Amazing palace with an impressive history and it continues to be important to the Danish royal family to this day, which is incredible! There are rooms that look very modern, but it also looks like a fairy tale as it is breathtaking. The undergrounds, where you can see ruins of the old castles built before today's final version, are quite interesting! The remains of the older versions of the castle hold such a strong impression on whoever sees it. The kitchen is an enchanting experience where you can touch everything and learn how the staff functions when there are large events in the palace. You can also see the old chariots used by the royalty.
It was interesting to know the history of this palace. Its huge and impressive. The ride to the tower is free but you have to be in queue for some time. There is a lot of history in this Palace. Some of the places inside the palace were not open when we visited the palace so unfortunately we could not make a full use of our ticket. Recommended :)
Overall, we liked this better than Amalienborg palace. Little more expensive but you get to see a lot more. The rooms were quite impressive and neat to see how they're currently used as well. You get access to the kitchen and ruins in addition to some of the main palace. You can also see the stables but they are only open 1:30-4:30pm so we couldn't see them. You'll need to check backpacks but I was able to keep my purse. Also, you'll be given booties to wear in the palace.
It's amazing to get to tour the palace. The materials provided allowed us to learn quite a bit about the building and its history, as well as the history of Copenhagen. I was surprised at how well interpreted it was, even in English. We spent several hours here. The stories of the early years of the city's history were especially interesting. Recommended.
One of three royal palaces in Copenhagen (the others are Rosenborg and Amalienborg). This huge palace now houses the Danish Parliament, prime Minister, and Supreme Court. Visitors can see the impressive representation rooms, climb the tower, visit the stables (open only in the afternoon), the historic kitchen, and the ruins underneath the castle (you have to buy separate tickets for each part).
