The complex is actually four identical royal buildings arragened around a central plaza. The main attraction here tends to be the noontime changing of the guards. Only one of the buildings is open to the public, but that’s more than enough for you to catch a fascinating glimpse into the lives of royalty. There’s nothing remarkable that stands out; but the experience of knowing royal life is worth the trip.
- There is a famous Gothic library inside the museum where the belongings of queens and the kings are preserved with utmost care.
- You’re not allowed to sit down on any of the buildings.
- You have to pay to photograph.
- Norreport station
- Restorant Vita

A great place to watch the tradition of changing the guard at the Danish Royal Court. Very similar in tone to Buckingham Palace, with a much more family feel to the affair. Palace Guards are very well turned out and are impressive, for national servicemen. Great museums nearby too. Well worth a visit.
There are 2 ways of looking at this palace – we can either call it a palace which allows crowd to pass by or a square which has identical buildings on 4 sides. In the center of this palace is a big statue of a member of the royal family and is the spot of changing of royal guards’ ceremony. On one side we have the beautiful marble church and on the other we have a river/canal. There is an untold symmetry about this place which leaves us with a unique feeling. If you are a museum lover, you can go in and spend few hours watching the artifacts or just spend some time in the center, watch guard changing ceremony and leave.
The Queen of Denmark's official residence in Copenhagen. The square in the middle of the palace is nice to go for a stroll and you can even watch the changing of the guard every day around 12 noon. If you get there early, you'll be able to see the new guards marching in.
I thoroughly enjoyed my visit here. The palace is maintained well, the location is open, the soldiers are a main attraction, and the statues are lovely. It's close to the Baltic Sea, so the whole area is really lovely. If you're in Copenhagen, you should go here.
What a lovely place to go and visit. Full of great Danish history and also a chance to see the crown jewels up close. Entry fee was really reasonable and my 10 year old son was free. They have a few guards parading around. They offer free WiFi and if you connect to it and type in what it tells you to do in your browser then you can get a free tour guide on your mobile phone. This is a brilliant idea and made it so much easier to understand what each item and room were all about. Make sure you start the tour in the correct order as we saw on person being told that his ticket wouldn't let him in the crown jewel part until he looked around the main castle. There are loads of historic items on display to see here and my history buff son loved it. After taking the tour we used the cafe there . It's quite small but again expensive, especially for drinks. . We all had a cheese and ham toasted sandwich which was very tasty. We stopped there about 2 hours which was enough to explore castle and have lunch. .
