Amalienborg Palace, the winter residence of the Danish Royal Family, is generally considered to be one of the finest examples of Rococo architecture in Denmark.
Consisting of four identical palaces arranged around an octagonal courtyard, the buildings originally belonged to four different nobles. After Christiansborg Palace was destroyed by fire in 1974, the Royal family moved into Amalienborg, and the four palaces have each housed various members of the Danish aristocracy. Two of the four palaces are open to the public and Royal fans will enjoy the chance to explore this fascinating example of Danish heritage. The changing of the Guard, which happens daily after the 11.30am march through the streets of Copenhagen, is a must-see for visitors to the capital.
