"Amalienborg and Amaliehaven" Amalienborg Palace Tip by Marpessa
Amalienborg Palace, Copenhagen: 73 reviews and 140 photos
Amalienborg Slot is the winter residence of the Royal family. It contains four palaces (that from the outside look exactly the same) on an octagonal square. I found it slightly weird that I was just able to walk right through the middle of the square, being a palace, I thought it would have all the gates locked or something. But I thought it was very cool that you could just stroll through there and have a look. In the centre of the square you will see a statue of a man on a horse. This is King Frederik V - the founder of the palaces. The first time I saw Amalienborg Slot was on TV for the wedding of Prince Frederik to (the now) Crown Princess Mary (formerly Mary Donaldson of Tasmania, Australia). After their wedding ceremony, they stood from one of the balconies and waved to the enormous crowd below.
Across from Amalienborg, right in front of the harbour, you will find Amaliehaven. This is a beautiful and modern garden. There isn't any grass here to sit on, but there are excellent fountains, trees, shrubs and plenty of benches to sit on.
