The front of the palace (2002)
Christiansborg Castle is a complex of government buildings, including the Parliament, Supreme Court, and Prime Minister's office.
The current Christiansborg actually is the third castle. It was built from 1907 to 1928 (the first one was completed in 1745).
Original tiles were replaced with copper in 1937-1938. Later a weather vane with two crowns was added to the tower and at 106 meters became the tallest tower in the city.
The royal family has not lived at Christianborg for over 200 years but still uses the palace for special occasions.
Admission: 45 DKK for children; 95 DKK for adults; 75 DKK for groups; 75 DKK for students

Nyhavn Harbor in Copenhagen is the old sailors' quarters and the home of Hans Christian Andersen.
It has been converted into colorful trendy cafes, bars, and jazz clubs.
It's also the best place to take a tour on one of the many Copenhagen harbor cruise and canal cruise boats.
Address: Nyhavn Harbor, Copenhagen
City Hall Square
City Hall Square is the largest square in Copenhagen.
The foundation stone was laid down by crown prince Frederick on July 1894 (the day of his 25th wedding anniversary). The square was inaugurated in 1905.
You will be impressed by National Romantic style.
On one side of the square is the location of the Tivoli and on the other side of the square the famous pedestrian street Strøget begins.
Address: Rådhuspladsen, Copenhagen
Statue of the Little Mermaid
The bronze statue of the Little Mermaid was unveiled on Aug. 1913.
Interesting that the statue displayed in Copenhagen harbour has always been a copy. The sculptor's heirs keep the original at an undisclosed location.
It seems as a right move: the statue has been damaged and defaced many times since the mid-1960s for various reasons, but has been restored each time.
Address: Langelinie, Copenhagen, Denmark
