Amalienborg Palace is the winter residence of the Danish royal family in Copenhagen. It consists of four identical palace exteriors with rococo interiors that create an octagonal courtyard. A majestic equestrian statue of Amalienborg's founder, King Frederick V, lies in the center of the courtyard, created by French sculptor Jacques-Francos-Josephy Saly. 

Amalienborg was originally built as manor houses for four noble families; however, when Christiansborg Palace suffered fire damage in 1794, the royal family bought the palaces and moved in. Over the years various royal families have resided in the four different palaces. Although it is still the residence of the royal couple, you can experience some of the rooms that are not in regular use filled with royal furnishings, tapestries, photographs, portraits, and heirlooms.

Practical Info

The palace is located centrally in the Frederiksstaden district. The Danish Royal Life Guard march from Rosenborg Castle every morning through the streets of Copenhagen, and execute the famous changing of the guard in front of Amal ienborg Palace at noon.
