Guided City Walk: The Royal Quarter

Join us on a guided tour just outside the museum! The Walk and Talk about the Frederiksstaden quarter is a guided tour in the area around the Amalienborg complex, which gives an insight into original ideas and visions regarding the new town plan. The museum’s guide will take you on a journey through the cult of the absolute monarchs, grand visions for the town plan, and unexpected events that gave Frederiksstaden the history we know today, with the Royal Family as its central residents.

The tour starts and ends at the museum.

Frederiksstaden is named after Frederik V and was founded against the background of the 300th anniversary of the House of Oldenburg’s reign in 1749. The quarter was to be built in the northern part of Copenhagen, where the earlier pleasure palace Sophie Amalienborg had been placed. It was to be a symbol of the power and wealth of the absolute monarchs, and was at the same time built according to modern principals. Among other things, therefore, Denmark’s first public hospital was built, and space was made for the bourgeoisie, who were to move into the many palaces. Frederiksstaden consists of two axes: Amaliegade street running lengthways, and Frederiksgade street running transversely; where they meet, Amalienborg Palace Square was built.
