Christiansborg serves as the administrative and judicial hub of Denmark, while Amalienborg is the residence of the Danish monarchy. The Folketinget (Parliament), the Prime Minister’s office, the Supreme Court, as well as some 11th-century ruins, are all located within this impressive complex.
Before the fire of 1794, the royal family resided on this property, and the Queen continues to host state dinners, banquets, and receptions in a few of the original rooms. Public access is available to the magnificent Royal Reception Rooms, which are lavishly decorated with artwork, chandeliers, gold, and marble. Don’t miss the underground castle ruins from the Middle Ages (additional ticket required).
