Guided walk in Frederiksstaden
Frederiksstaden is the Copenhagen district contained within the boundaries of Bredgade, Sankt Annæ Plads, Toldbodgade and Esplanaden. It was established in celebration of the 300th anniversary of the reign of the Royal House of Oldenborg in 1748 and was named after the then king, Frederik V, who is also commemorated with the imposing equestrian statue in the middle of Amalienborg Palace Square.
This tour is naturally centred on Amalienborg Palace Square, but we also stop by one of the most prominent merchant’s homes of its time, the so-called Yellow Palace, which later served as the residence of Christian IX. The tour also includes Frederik’s Church – better known as the Marble Church – and the former hospital that now houses Designmuseum Danmark. The main focus of the tour is on the 18th century, but we will also take a look at the more recent history of the area, including the time during the Second World War, as well as its current role.
When: this tour is offered in April–October.
Duration: the tour takes about 90 minutes.
Price: 169 kroner, including admission to the Amalienborg Museum / 49 kroner for club members.
Meeting point: we meet in front of Christian VII’s Palace at the entrance to the Amalienborg Museum.
Meeting time: the tours start at 13:30 sharp, so we recommend that you show up five minutes early.
