Summer Tours: The Best of Amalienborg
The Royal Danish Collection is offering guided tours around Christian VIII’s Palace all summer.
The guided tours focus on the Danish Royal Family’s changing role in society over the last 150 years, a time of great historical upheaval, which has left its mark on the monarchy during its time at Amalienborg.
The rooms and halls of Christian VIII’s Palace posses an atmosphere of peace and idyll, but behind the idyllic pictures and stylish furnishings hides a turbulent history marked by political storms, world wars, and industrialisation.
Come on a guided tour that offers insight into the monarchy’s development from absolutism to democracy. A period in which the kings continually wrestled with a changing worldview, challenges which were managed very differently by each monarch.
On the tour you will see the historical interiors from the reigns of Christian IX and Frederik IX which are on show on the ground floor of the Palace. The experience continues on the piano nobile, through the Gothic Library, the Throne Chamber, the Appartement Hall and the Gala Hall.
We wish you a wonderful time!
