Amalienborg Slot information
Lonely Planet review
Visitors can enter one wing of the Amalienborg Slot, which features exhibits of the royal apartments used by three generations of the monarchy from 1863 to 1947.
The reconstructed rooms have heavy oak furnishings, gilt-leather tapestries, family photographs and old knick-knacks. They include the study and drawing room of Christian IX (1863–1906) and Queen Louise, whose six children wedded into nearly as many royal families – one ascending the throne in Greece and another marrying Russian Tsar Alexander III. The changing of the guard takes place – entirely for the benefit of tourists, one suspects – outside Amalienborg at noon daily, the new guard having marched through the city centre from the barracks on Gothersgade at 11.30am.
