Guidelines for visiting the palace

Because there are many fragile and freestanding objects at the Amalienborg Museum, we ask our guests to observe a few simple precautions.
The objects in the museum may not be touched. It is important that you follow the instructions and recommendations of the staff during your visit.

Photography is allowed.

You are allowed to take water in clear plastic bottles into the museum.

Please avoid talking on your mobile phone in the museum, as doing so may disturb the other visitors. You are, however, welcome to use your mobile phone to look at our online guides to the exhibits or for taking pictures.

Young children must be accompanied by an adult inside the museum. Very young children must be carried in a baby carrier on the stomach.

If you have any further questions, you are welcome to contact the guard’s office by telephone: +45 33 18 60 52.
We hope you enjoy your visit to The Royal Danish Collection.


Special access

The Amalienborg Museum in Christian VIII’s Palace has lifts for wheelchair users. Please notice that the maximum weight is 496 lbs (225 kg). The Beletage has a few doorsteps that might require a helper to pass.

We welcome service and guide dogs but they must be kept on a leash.

Free entry for one accompanying guardian or custodian.

We kindly ask our guests to park strollers and prams in the entrance to the museum under the stairs at the ticket office, since they can not be brought to the museum.

Please note that the tour in Christian VII’s Palace is not suitable for people with trouble walking. There are many stairs and no elevators, why walkers and wheelchairs cannot be used.

Museum Shop

Whether it is a memento or the perfect gift, we have a large and varied selection of classic souvenirs and unique products, inspired by current exhibitions and collections. The selection ranges from books, i.a. our own series about Danish kings, textiles, jewelery, arts and crafts, local products for classic souvenirs such as key rings, magnets and Christmas decorations.
