You may see Dannebrog, the Royal Danish Yacht mostly in Aarhus during the summer-season, when Queen Margarethe II is living in her summer-residence closeby. The royal yacht was built in 1931 and shows the danish crown in front of the ship. It is considdered to be one of the official "residences" and is mostly used to visit remote places of Danmark like Greenland and the Faroe Islands.
I saw Dannegbrog twice in Aarhus, docked at a special pier next to the commercial port, always with some soldiers in front of the ship to guard it.
Photographs can be taken from a distance without problems.
