Amalienborg Slotsplads is a very impressive square with an interesting historical background. Around the square are the four palaces of Amalienborg, one of which is the winter home of the Danish royal family. The square itself is very grand and in the centre is a statue of King Frederik V on horseback, dating back to 1771.

Behind the square is Frederiks Kirke, commonly known as The Marble Church, which has the largest dome in Scandanavia.

From the other side of the square, the harbour is just a few steps away, marked by a magnificent fountain.
